  8. Hello Fellow ADV/ Dualsport riders, I was contacted by the organizers of the San Diego Toys for Tots event to help them raise their support and donations for the event. They have expanded from the Harley club to Car, Jeep, Offroad and the ADV/ Dualsport community. The jeep club has stepped up with almost 8,000 dollars do far. So far we the ADV/ DS community has had minimal traction for both support and donations for this event. This is disappointing. I committed that we as a community would be good partners in supporting this event. To get the ball rolling and help keep that commitment I am challenging sponsors, vendors, and ADV/ DS riders as a group to pile on to my family's donation of $1000. Our goal should be to meet or exceed what other clubs are doing. PLEASE help with support and donations that all goes to the kids. Thank you

    Wanted: plastic gas tank

    Do they have to be plastic? Maybe welding on a metal tank might be easier to modify? I believe I have a xr650l stock tank somewhere.

    Military plane crashes in Ocotillo

    I get all that Mike. The guy filming moved the camera far from the plane and mentioned the parachute coming down. When seeing the plane coming down I could imagine they would have to wait and eject at the last moment to direct the plane safely, therefore I would of thought you would see the parachute in the same frame as the plane. All the pilots involved did a great job in minimizing damages and injuries.

    Military plane crashes in Ocotillo

    He said he sees the parachute. I did not see it. I figured it would be in the shot with the plane heading to the ground. I wonder when he ejected to be able to keep the plane headed to a safe area? Pretty amazing to be out there and see something like that happen.
