    SDAR Club meeting - WED 7-17-19

    I am going to give it my best shot. I think that is my kids first day back to school. Plus my life is pretty busy (teenagers💲, divorce💲=🤬=😁 and girlfriend in Mexico💲😍). 😆 Oh well, you only live once, or so I am told. I will try to make the club meeting though.

    Long Way Up

    I will watch. As long as it is free. The first series was better than the second. I wish I could put my life on pause for 80 plus days to go on an adventure. I am lucky if I get enough free time to go to the bathroom.
  5. I don't recalling a sign strictly prohibiting a camp type fire. But, I did see that target shooting was strictly prohibited and it specifically sited fire danger as the reason. Maybe a little propane burner grill would be easier than charcoal or wood. I know a little propane burn isn't as romantic as a roaring camp fire, but it will cook meat.
  6. It was a great meetup, ride and view. I almost didn't go at the last second but I am very glad that I did. I would highly recommend this mini adventure during the week. Tom was also suggesting to do a mini basic BBQ on one of these summer evening rides to the top. That would be fun too.
  7. Stupid question? How do we keep our beer from being shaken to death on the way up?
  8. Not sure how much of a sunset we will have a chance to see. It is supposed to be cloudy tomorrow evening.
  9. My previous plans fell through, so.... I might be in. If so, I will be at Pio Pico before 1915.

    New SDAR Member from Ramona, CA

    Welcome cmbthumper. I have only been a member here for 6 months or so, maybe a tad longer. Anyways, so far everyone I have met or interacted with on the forum has been top notch! You are in good company. Great story, by the way. Get your pops signed up to the forum and keep an eye out for rides. They happen all the time and randomly. There is something for everyone and a wealth of knowledge on here. Hope to see you on the trails and the street!
  11. Awesome pictures! I am glad you all had a blast. Well done.

    Yamaha Super Tenere 700

    Or, we need a manufacture to engineer a bike that does not fall over.

    Yamaha Super Tenere 700

    I must be thinking of the £7K. I think that is just shy of $9K USD. The under-powered statement I made is an assumption. There aren't any US examples available yet, that I am aware of. Historically, bikes are tuned down and lean to meet emissions requirements. I am assuming this will be the case for this bike.

    Yamaha Super Tenere 700

    I am curious about this bike for sure. One review I saw said that even though there is a 34" seat height, they still felt cramped as a tall rider.I don't know if the pegs could be lowered some? Braking was the most common critical comment I recall seeing. It looks like the US models will be made in Japan. The European models will be born in France. I am sure that the US models will probably feel under powered due to emissions requirements. Probably nothing a ECU flash and Power Commander can't resolve. Anyone have a price point for the US? Did I hear ~$7K? I also would really be interested in a 300-400 version of this bike.
  15. Wow! I understand your frustration, but every manufacture will have a lemon get out into the wild. It sounds like Kawasaki is trying to make it right. Maybe give the replacement bike a chance? Maybe it will not disappoint?
