Looks like CycleMaster in Ashton has the filter oil in stock. Only one in the area!

Heads up and thanks to Emmbeedee: just bought a Montana 600 from gpscity.ca.

Still need the dual sport bike, though...

I have a DR650 for sale. It would be a great accessory for that GPS!

Did you get the discount from GPSCity in the Vendor's Forum? Did you buy the Rugged Mount or an Automotive mount for it?

Yep, got the discount. Not a big one, because I only needed the plate with the ballhead to screws into the rugged mount and I already have a ballhead screwed into the tank bolts of my VFR. (And I had a 4" arm from when I used a Garmin GPS V.) Also got City Navigator North America NT (hey, it's for a sport-touring bike...)

Remember the V? 256x160 pixels of display (about 2" by 1.5"), a couple of shades of grey, basemap copyrighted 2001, loading maps from CitySelect took forever with a serial cable and you only had 19 megabytes (that's right, MB) on onboard RAM.



Methinks that after a V, having a Montana will be like going to Heaven. Especially since the V auto-routed me onto innexistent offramps somewhere in PA, back in '07...

Will have lots to learn (especially about loading points of interest such as Honda dealerships) and I'll reread your very informative posts, Emmbeedee.

Thanks for the heads-up, Quantis... Although my avatar still says I'm looking for a 640 ADV, methinks my best bet (for fun and the learning curve of local trail riding) would be a DRZ400. (If I can figure out the difference between the E and the S.) I have my VFR for long distances, and don't see myself in an adventure ride to Alaska or whatever's not yet paved on the TransLab.

I do remember the V, I bought one new a long time ago, then gave it to a friend. A good gps for its day.

CNNA is a necessity, and a real bargain, IMHO.

E is dirt only, no road plate allowed... S street legal.

E is different carb, exhaust, timing?, air box?, chain sproket ratio.
