  1. Thor Sentry XP Body Protector (2XL-3XL) has been discontinued and will not be returning https://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/leatt-3df-airfit-body-protector#:~:text=LEATT-,Leatt 3DF AirFit Body Protector,-Item%3A P386526 Used by a few of the desert guys.
  2. From thecerver: Unfortunately I wasn't able to fix it. I went to Moab and used two old phones I had. I tried Gaia, All Trails, Google Offline Maps, and Rever. I feel Gaia worked the best, but battery life on my old Samsung was too short and it was difficult to see the phone versus a GPS unit. I'll put some batteries in the Garmin tomorrow and see if there's a miracle. Good luck. Quote Replied: Tuesday at 04:23 PM I put new batteries in and it is still broken...which makes sense. Someone in the group said to turn it off for a bit and turn it back on, thinking it would fix itself. Didn't happen. It still gets stuck on "loading maps". Garmin offered by a refurbished unit for $170 but I'm so frustrated with it being a software issue that I won't pay that. Good luck
  3. Thecerver, did you ever get your Garmin up and running? If so, how?
  4. You could drive up the grade a bit and find a place to park it. A few wide spots/pullouts do exist. Not sure it will be there when you get back though. If you are plated, a casino parking lot maybe? Jilberto's and El Ray restaurants both also have plenty of room and are pretty close. I'm close too if you are plated and want security. PM if you like. Behind the Pauma Valley Post office is another paved lot (upper lot) thats pretty empty.

    questions about hitch mounted bike carrier?

    I've been using this aluminum carrier for four years for my KTM 500 EXC. From local to Idaho and Arizona. Not problems at all for my Toyota FJ cruiser. Comes with a stabilizer to keep it from moving around. https://www.discountramps.com/motorcycle-carrier/p/AMC-400/
  6. PM me if anybody has a track of this ride, I'd like one if possible. Thanks!

  8. Everybody split up to hit the road home before darkness fell. Dinner was whatever you found on your own. For me, left over Italian meatballs and ravioli.
  9. I'm In!! Jilberto's over at S-2 and 76 is open as well as El Ray (Wink, Wink) food wise after. Old Jilberto's at Pauma Casino is closed.
  10. I found the 100% were too dense in the foam and fogged up worse the the L frames. Ran a bit warmer than my Oakley L frames. I could have a pair for sand riding (to keep fine sand out by using more dense foam) and don't know it too. More air (ride faster!), less fogging and sweating.
