Etrex 20 and 30 not allowed. Looks like they might supply the GPSs, we'll see. I've already got a 10 from the previous 2 races.

I will agree that the fuel lines are crap, however, I've replaced it with different types of fuel line, both hardened as well. Maybe its something in modern fuel?

I've managed to break those kydex covers while racing. Truth be told, it was a pretty high speed crash. Overtook a 450 KTM/Husky in dust when the road turned. The tanks held up fine, so maybe they...

I bought a SMPro front rim when I bought my 2013 F8GS to keep the smiley monster at bay. I still have it as delivered, so it most certainly works for that.

Thanks for that, it will still work, I'll just have to be careful how I sequence the fitment of the wheels. But I'll rather go with Rad or the RFR option, all things being equal.
