sat n sun

Not to change the subject from gay sex or anything, but I'll probably do big day rides this sat n sun... I may find a way to make it an overnighter ( != buggery) as in normal camping with normal people, so if you want to go you have to bring your own guns and liquor.

tank foam?

Anyone have experience with this?

I like my big desert tank 1/3full cuz the fuel is much lower than little stock tanks, but I never really noticed the sloshing....

What's going on in the background with the yellow suit?

Just a heads up that there is pretty significant road / flood damage throughout southern Utah.

If folks have updates please post them here,
http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....&postcount=103

Also noting that Red Cliffs is closed due to flooding as well...

Lots of the guys who ride the Super Enduro with the 8g tank use aircraft foam. The change in volume is minimal, and I haven't heard anyone complain that it buggers up the fuel lines (notice how I still made a gay sex reference).

Derek may be able to make it happen pending dates... I'd be psyched to do a trip w good old trackhead again! Kev out this weekend thx/ sorry! Harcus/kev I'd be psyched to possibly hit up the ktm rally too though I'd have to get a jacket and other gayish type items probably before I could hang unless you want one more smelly dirtbiker on a 450..

Green River Tracks?

Anyone have tracks for a ~200mile loop around green river? I'm headed west from GR this weekend and am building a partial route in RallyNavigator to play around a bit. Instead of starting from scratch I'm seeing if someone has something interesting already.
