Picked up another piece of kit today...

Klim Scramble Pak



The other day Bruce and I were complaining about having different tool kits for each bike. It holds all the tools i've been carrying. Nicely padded. I really could have used this Sunday when Cheyenne's throttle got jammed up. Now to test it and see if I like it enough to keep using it.

PS I have it on good authority we'll be celebrating another Bday on the TWVT!

Crap...busted
it's actually a swim float. I added life jacket foam to the pockets in case you lead me to more water crossings

you have any luck solving this? I am having the same symptoms.

Which part, the bluetooth, or XM antenna?

If you're referring to the bluetooth, then yes, I did fix it. I reverted back to the prior software version (2.80) using the instructions in this blog. I know the guy who wrote it. He's an IT geek and I trust his recommendations on this.

If you want to try it, let me know and I'll e-mail you the file. The downside of doing this is that it will reset most of the settings back to factory and you'll have to re-add all your bluetooth devices.

The other option is to just wait until an update fixes it. Plenty of people online are complaining so they'll have to do something eventually.

I'm not updating any of my GPSs again until after the IBR.

If you were referring to the XM antenna, then no, I haven't tried to fix it yet. I have some ideas, along with some suggestions from Bruce, so I'll get to it soon.

EB is on my radar. Sunday will mark the 4th or 5th day without rain, so should be some good riding and perhaps the last day to ride before they lift the Sun-Wed riding restriction (forecast calls for rain next Wed and Sun). :)

With the spring trail ride last weekend, they moved the kids grass track to a flat section farther down...should be easier to ride for your son...they had quite a few kids with the outriggers riding it last Sunday.
