First - yes they fixed the loose battery issue. The AAs fit very tight with a snap. And yes they do seem to last longer than the recharge.

I have about 10 rechargeable AAs that I keep hot and carry with me (not all at once of course).

I guess I need to use the back light timer and set it for two minutes. I have a problem with looking at the GPS too much... it will hurt me soon I know.

Anyway with hardwire mount coming I will see how that works...probably put it on the Hunny since I spend more time on that.

For street riding I think its hard to beat the iPhone on MapQuest with blue tooth to head set. I get up to date info and British Female voice directions!!!

Lots of fun playing with a new toy...

If any of you are thinking about getting one ---shop around for best price with NO shipping or tax = $469 or so for the 600.


OK Hutton on the 4th sounds good to me. I have some new stuff I want to tie in with older routes.

Hutton on 4 July

Rotorhead/VICO and anyone else that can join us...what time do you guys want to start?

Looks like rain but to me that just means that it won't be hot. I'll be there rain or shine.

While there are still a few days left which could somehow alter my forward projected list of events, I have prioritized Thursday morning as my official celebration of the date on which this fine country declared its independence by engaging in some freedom inspiring two wheeled action starting from the Hutton Unit at 7:30AM - with or without precipitation and I guess without regard to the temperature.

A one tank ride into the abyss and mystery of Blackwater State Park

Yall come now ya here ! Hell this is the way Epic Rides start...

From past experience 7:30 means wheels rolling about 8AM...

But remember at 7:15 I yell "15 minutes" and leave immediately.... Its an old BW tradition...

Be good to ride with you again.


BTW - just laid out a 65 mile loop from Hutton north to Bad Ass land and back. I can send GPX tracks if anyone is interested.

Hey guys. Just checking in, been a while since I've been on here. Talked to rotorhead at work the other day sounds like he has been getting out riding a bunch with you guys. I'm headed to the in laws for the long weekend but maybe can catch y'all for a ride when I get back. Happy 4th and be safe out there!

Vic,

Looks like I might be joining you guys; I'd like to get the tracks loaded up if you don't mind sending them.

O.C.

Come on over - even if you are from "that place". Remember this is starting from Hutton Unit and NOT Karick lake. See Post #2 for directions.
