    Garmin zūmo® XT anyone using this?

    All the GPS rides I have ever been on, which are quite a few. With me never having the unit, but watching the lead GPS guy.....they never can see the device in the sun, we always had to stop and stop and stop to get dialed in . So I have always shunned the logic of using the moto mounted units mostly due to never seeing the screen from light exposure and small size. I want to set up the unit and go go go . I have large touch screen top tier Garmin experience from our fishing vessel, so I know how good the systems can be. Now with this latest Zumo set up I may splurge for the unit for my 1999 TE610 DS project, I will mount perfectly on the odometer (unused ) bracket low and center between the headlight shroud and handlebars sort of out of harms way. So has anyone splurged for one of these state of the art new models? I have watched a bunch of tests and user reports from Romania to SoCal. Sounds like a real winner for 98% of functions.
  3. For your records Herr Ja Ja, 221 Katrina Price GB Yam YZ250 2T 405 Hermann Kugel D KTM 500 4T 402 Jorg Steenbock D HBG 500 4T Can't see the other numbers
  4. Memorable for that mud hole that caught out many of the worlds best, their recoveries are superman worthy.
  5. We have local OZ transplant whose Dad was one of the major players in the org of that event. It was a good ISDE!! Cool you were there!!!

    Sounds good Brian, I will need a few or more confidence rides to verify good function of the overall package. Again she still needs a few dial in measures, one of which is worth mentioning, Chassis Lube- the swingarm linkage is loaded with zerk fittings for easy external grease gun lubrication of all the bearings in the suspension and swing arm shaft, this was always a good addition on these bikes.. When set up correctly and ridden in proper form (read Euro enduro style) These TE (350/410/610) machines are super competitive (I think still fully in the game with modern equipment).

    10 years ago I owned this plated TE610 and she looked like this. Kind of an Anders Eriksson theme world enduro look.

    Shes 99.5% done and running headlites work. tailight needs connection, brakes need bleeding, skid plate needs re bending and fitting, suspension needs sag setting (wow it's 90mm race sag on these) and maybe a couple other bits. But OA she's done. Will keep my eyes peeled for a trailer/truck it in DS ride. I am not commuting on this bike.

    KTM head work rec sought

    I see you are done but for FYI , Crow Performance Suspension in North County is an authorized Race Tech satellite, they now have full engine services on their menu. So they dhave full suspension services and engine work shop with state of the art equipment.

    The Technosel seat is icing on the cake, even though its 90s/2000s vintage it is still perfect, plush but firm, not all blown out. Just shows a little faded age. It was a brilliant bonus E Bay find. Most of the MXGP/World Enduro guys used Technosel back in the day.

    Anyone recognize the units that Paul is using for Romaniacs (or better said what Romaniacs crew are giving to all the riders to use?)

    96.5% done, very happy with how she's come back into being, scratches, dents and surface corrosion remain along with up grades and new stuff. I have a bunch of spares in my box including a full set of YEL plastics and other stuff, so I can dress her up differently if and when I want.

    wow brilliant thank you all for the inputs. The storing of tracks is utmost important! Yes the preset tracks are for sure needed. Its odd about that because the seaborne units do have preset course loading available...however; I was the one that loaded them, so really they were not handed to me from anyone like when we do a preset plan ride. I will look at the Montana series units, and as I am in research mode I spotted some of my friends are using the Montana series up in Utah right now.

    Scratched my bike....over and over again

    Public service announcement on how to bullet proof your bike. PS the Michelin FIM Enduro tires have always been DOT legal. But with mousses it is a "trailer" to the ride set up with minimal road use.

    Leaking Fork Seal

    Also all the usual and above checks. 1st be sure forks are properly aligned and torqued. Fork alignment is the biggest issue, that floating foot side needs to be free before tightening. I've seen way too many home mechs get that all wrong and bind up the forks putting stress on the bushings and seals. 2nd tie down and use struts or even bleed after snugging down, then open after unloading to balance local/altitude/temp pressure, I constantly piss out and in air with my pro bleeders. 3rd us the simple cheap made for the job tool to do a scrape job. Fact is when everything is mechanically correct without 100s of wear hours, it is rare for OEM quality (SKF etc.) to simply fail without a mechanical cause.

    Leaking Fork Seal

  19. FYI my ready to race/wet non-DS, 2 stroke/XC no lites model TX300 Husqvarna weighs 242lbs on NASCAR quality pro scale set up. Added significant weight- Flexx bars, mousses, sharkfin. My WAGuestimate for a wet ready to ride 350-500 4 stroke full kitted OEM DS machine must be somewhere in the 20-30 more range. (262-272 range).

    Military plane crashes in Ocotillo

    Been involved with more than a few mishap investigations some minor some deadly, it can even happen that a known cause may never be released.

    Oh and I got the plate assy and plate mounted up, so more DS motivation. Still need a bit of wiring set up, but I think I am fairly solid, if not it will reflect badly upon me......Aviation Electrical systems engineering/installation/modifications etc etc since the mid 80s......
  22. A group of us went to the Sedlak Offroad riding school this past Saturday in the breezy furnace of Potrero on private land. I highly recommend Daniel's schools . His format was simple and effective. I have some additional tweaks for adjusting my over the years habitual riding and some great tools to implement those tweaks. As is normal with any ride school I will take in all the information for my tool kit and utilize as required. Daniel is also an easy going likeable guy and his assistant instructor Edgar Cota is the same. Now that said Sedlak is doing an ADV bike school very soon, those with big bikes I implore you to sign up. Daniels resume' as an FIM pro is impressive with MX, Enduro and Rally events under his belt from EU to Asia to Africa. And if you want to practice your German with him you can. BTW he was Sam Sunderland's teammate for while in the Raid/Rally game (on the bigger bikes). Photo added for the ADV upcoming classes. For info www.sedlakoffroadschool.com
