I have the older pods and they seem to work fine with my large TT tank. Once they are on I don't even really notice they are there, until after I fall and am I'm glad I had them on.

hope your injuries will be the last and wish you better health.




bob, good to hear you're healing up. just relax and will see you when you get back on the saddle.
Thanks. I hope the Othapedic Sugeon does me good. Having this injury since October has impacted my riding.

I have a wider aceribis 3.4 gal tank on my 530. I like the feel of the Asterisks braces compared to the cheap pads I had when I injured the knee. I can't complain about the cost of the asterisks. My buddy sold them to me for 200 bucks cause they were tight on him. I sent them into asterisks and for 75 bucks they replaced all the clips, pads and worn out parts. so for a 275 dollar investment, I got a 600 dollar pair of braces. too bad I didn't have them when I did my superman flying manuever last Oct.

can't beat that, good deal and best protection. i would like to try the asterisks and looking for demo days.

i have the skinnier tank now so the outcome may be more postive. also, if i add a wider and extended footpegs, i should be able to position my feet farther out and be able to grab the tank better. having comfy position on the bike is the foremost i think.

I'm thinkin of wider pegs myself. I am 6 foot 4 1/2 inchs tall, big feet, and have slipped off the pegs a few times before. especially when I throw on my new wider boots.

The NF campgrounds just outside of Mammoth looked very nice last year. I camped at the commercial campground just across the street. We launched from the NF campgrounds. There is a bunch of riding up there.

I had a good half day today at Rowher. Got to the staging area at 8am to find only one other truck. It was cool and overcast when I arrived - perfect weather. Started the day with a challenge - I was going to take the Rowher Trail to the top.

Stopping on the way up for a picture. I just came up this lower section.


Kool-aid anyone?


Made it to the top in one piece.


I took a bunch of the offshoots near the top and then headed down towards the reservoir via the fire road. On the way back up - challenge time again. I took the center section of the 4x4 trail from where it intersects with the fire road.

This is as far as I got, but these two riders made it up no problem. The dude went up with his front tire in the air and his lady came up right behind him. I was impressed. The section just up from here was seriously steep.


So back to the fire road for me then all the way to the west along the ridge to where fence prevents you from going any further (this is just past the second concrete pad). Sure, I'll have another glass of Kool-aid, thanks!


From there I headed down Sierra Pelona to where it intersects with Bouquet. I didn't even realize there was another way to get in to Rowher from Bouquet. Here is the entrance.


And then back up Sierra Pelona to Rush Canyon and down towards the staging area. I took Mine trail to Texas trail and back to Staging Area 1. The plants are tall - handlebar height. It makes it pretty difficult to see if someone is coming the other way.


Here's the GPS track plotted.

no doubt bob there's bountiful of campgrounds in that area. i'm saving all rides east of the sierras between wmrs and the ktm rally.

camping in walker pass will be a good alternate to mammoth camping on the wmrs weekend.

for jul and aug, a trip to the west side of the sierra is on order, even a ride along the coast line will be great and camp somewhere near nascimiento will be nice. with the 950, it seems the travel time between 2 points become shorter. and yes, i hate to see the big ktm sitting in the backyard....
