Yeah, they're focusing their efforts on supplying demand rather than buffing their on-line presence. From the original announcement of our corporate sponsorship deal 5/12 -- almost a year ago, how time flies:

With guys like Neduro poaching all the good sponsors like Klim and Layer Cake Wines, there's not much swag left over for humble projects like ours.

When Continental dropped development of the TKC-90 (they blamed us for it's demise), they dropped us too. We never had JiffyLube, and instead had to settle for JiffyPop ("You can taste the adventure!™" ), but they had a bit of a hissy when we used their homogenated palm oil to lubricate our chains and sprockets.

Speaking of chain-oiling systems, we've had issues with one product we tested, and we had to drop French's mustard chain oiling system prototype because the stay-clean cap leaked and was anything but clean. For M9 I'll be implementing my own system that will be neat, simple, cheap, and easy. Details to follow.

So after all these struggles, I'm proud to announce the official corporate sponsor of M9.... drumroll, please:

Their product has proven to be the single best upgrade to any dual-sport, adventure touring, off-road, or dirtbike. EVER. They are proven to increase horsepower, torque, acceleration, top speed, fuel efficiency and braking power. At the same time, they decrease the likelihood of rain, flat tires, and road closures.

As a bonus, they are precisely engineered, light-weight, field-serviceable, exquisitely designed, and stunningly beautiful.

"They totally make life worth living".

Ladies and gentlemen... ...LINK

paper maps

Ya'll might consider carrying two of the best paper maps for traveling the Southwest that I know of, Automobile Club of Southern California's "Indian Country" and theirs for Death Valley Nat'l Park. Both really are very good, inexpensive, light to carry and free to AAA members. 4WD roads and precise mileages between junctions are included.

Can't hurt to have 'em tucked away.

If you have them, and you're coming along... do we really need two copies?

Well, as I interpret the Old Testament, the reason Moses et al wandered the desert for 40 years was that he broke the 11th commandment: Drive a 4Runner.

Pretty hard for the batteries to go dead on a paper map!

This is going to be fun!

Important Announcement

I am proud to announce another sponsor for this ride. I've worked hard on this and finally got er' done.

Sticky Ass Glue




I'm still working on Sticky Ass Tape----but it's a long shot I think.



I was sent this prototype Garmin "Death Valley" gps which may be available late this year.
I was also given the optional rubber band antennae holder thingy----much testing to be done.
I can keep the gps I was told----but they want the rubber band back
I guess I could use "Sticky Ass Tape" if I ever get any.





Also-------if anybody is interested and want to follow along-------here is the link to my spot walla page which won't become active till April 6th when I turn the thing on .

Dr. Rock,

I have had some personal and work related stuff come up this week that would be irresponsible of me to ignore this coming weekend. With that said, I am going to have to pass on joining you guys for this coming weekend. I wish you all the luck though and I can't wait for the write up. Ride on!
