Let see if this works. It looks like it cut the track into 8 parts. Click on page 2 to get the last legs of the track to show.

I've got to go open the gym but those wildlife loop roads aren't open or at least they never use to be. I'll stick a suggestion up later tonight when I get home.


Edit according to the web site, they're open I've been living here a while and never went there because the gates where always closed...

as far as I know there is only one authorized entrance /exit from the north tract of the wildlife refuge, which is off of rte 198. the exit onto patuxent road is closed to traffic.

last time I rode down meyer station road it dead ends at a farm. the proposed bicycle trail had not been opened due to conflicts over a rifle range on private property. if it is now open it will be a no motor vehicle path. will check it this weekend.

I'm good with this Sunday....

Got the KTM clutch fixed for now. Apparently the master cylinder is weeping and needed fluid added. Added a bit of fluid and it's got the normal feel back. Noticed a good bit of sediment though. Guess I need to plan on cleaning and flushing the system out here soon.

Yeah I'm not happy about it either and it looks like the weather on sunday is suppose to be really nice.

I'm helping a friend, who just bought a house, remove a bearing wall and install a couple of LVLs to carry the load. There's an outside chance we'll get done tomorrow afternoon...

Just cause I was searching...

My 1200GS came with the smartire tpms. Fookin' awesome. I absolutely loved that thing. And now that I'm running tubed tires I've got to get use to not having it. They aren't being made any more for motorcycle applications, but I came upon an ebay seller who must have found a lost shipping container with them. Needless to say, for $99 shipped you can get a tpm for your bike.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/280920630097...84.m1423.l2649

In 2.5 years of using the system it was always spot on when referencing manually. The smartire also does temp calibration.

I don't think I can make Sunday, as I have family obligations. I'll try to rearrange things, but am not optimistic.
Please keep me posted on future trips, as I am keen to explore the area!

The only spinning I'm doing is trying to get my wide-ass Hacked Beemer down my driveway. I made a poor decision Wednesday to leave my 1/8 mile driveway as is. It all froze and the Princess just couldn't get any traction. I couldn't even use reverse to get her back in the garage. I had to push her back from the front old school style. Back up plan was to jump in the truck 1/2 ATGATT and drive in. Halfway down the driveway i realized my parking pass and badge were on the bike. 4WD Frontier was unable to reverse the whole way back on the driveway. I had to utilize my last mode of transportation, my feet, to get the pass and badge. Of course 12 hours later the driveway is clear and bone dry... AND, this is the same storm that had my hacked KLR pulled home at the end of a tow strap by two gun toting rednecks in a pickup truck. Just not my week.
