Is that a Garmin model? It has that retro look! What style type is that?

Keep those wheels turning!

Navigation aids are good. Got to sneak up on that high tech shit.

This sounds like a good ride except for the slab part.

I use the John-min LP 8.5/11. It comes in a nice yellow. The font is a John-min proprietary font. It's encrypted, only readable by myself and some doctors and pharmacist. It integrates with Google maps easily, software updates are free, and it is never really out of date anyway.

I have a Garmin 60CSx, never bought a mount yet. It's still brand new in the box basically.

As far as slab goes, sometimes you just gotta make time to get to the good stuff. It ain't like you miss much cutting across the Illini prairie.

Top of the line! I talked to a Garmin guy about buying the new 62. Basically, he said to keep the 60 over the 62; which has more memory, but less in areas that count. Just like everything else, you get more bling and less real performance.

I think BBF's point was....

......it doesn't matter if it is a Garmin Honeysuckle XL, Magellan Excalibur or Tom Tom SE, it will prolly stay unmounted and in the box

The main part of his in the brain database is filled with the locations of Waffle Houses' and Popeyes. Try and stump the man on a location of one of those!

There's one in Bloomington, too. Benefits the Marines and our local humane society. Blasts off from the VFW noon.

We still have snow pack up north here.

Forest City Riders Dual sport has been pushed back to April 14th with a rain date of April 20th now.

Ground is still froze and it will take some warmer weather to melt all the snow.

We have been arrowing and have most of the trail done, just the open sections left where we need to pound stakes in.

Good ride, but a long drive for you central guys.

I think I saw you, were you wearing a hi-vis yellow jacket? Believe I saw you taking that picture where the road closed sign is. I was less than a mile behind you taking my dog and wife home after a walk in the park. I live in Bement and travel around Allerton and Lodge parks quite a bit.
