I get most of my stuff from MFI in Winchester. That's a great dealership, and they really support the riding community. They sponsor the S500.
Thanks!

Not sure if he's got forum discounts but I'd imagine he would.

Hey guys, they are trying to set up a two day trials class over in Sanford NC (About 30 minutes past Raleigh). It is priced very reasonably at about $170.
Rental bikes will be available.

As you probably know, trials skills will translate directly to making you a better dirt rider (ever struggle with a log crossing? ).

Here is a video of the instructor doing a demo


More info here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=953007

Anyone want to go with me?

All the above and add Rocky Mountain to your list. Anything over 99 ships free and they have a ton of OEM parts for the RFS bikes in stock. I have gotten a ton of parts from them for both KTMs and their stuff ships fast.

You have my attention. Have always wanted to give trials a go. AND this just happens to be my birthday weekend so would be an easier sell to The Boss!

Congrats on making it to the big R man. I did my 4 year rip during our first go'round in Iraq. Figured then and there that it was not what I wanted to do for two more decades...

I love rockymountain. Too bad I don't even need $99 in parts so I can get the free shipping.

I really want to do this clinic. It sounds pretty awesome. If I can figure out how to bring the boys, I'll get zero opposition from da boss. Ha!

Any local ADV guys at Wintergreen yesterday?

I saw someone with an ADV sticker on their helmet. Didn't have a chance to stop and chat and never saw them again.

Great conditions, btw.

Must have been on their ski helmet as the stupid "resort" forbids motorcycles. Kind of a bitter pill to swallow when you only find out that wonderful news as you roll up to the gate on your bike in the dark an hour after the wife has already arrived in the car, only to find out that the cell reception sucks, and you don't know the house number anyway. Massanutten will get my money.

Raceratb Replacement Calibrated Speedometer Faces

We have "Group Buy" working on Stromtroopers Forum. All V-Strom DL-650 (2004-2011) and DL-1000 owners are welcome to participate. It involves simply replacing the stock speedometer face with a face correctly calibrated. Takes just a few minutes. The V-Strom speedometer is optimistic by 8%. An indicated 60 is actually a true 54 mph, 70 is a true 64 as measured by GPS.
Just $40 for a simple cosmetic fix. It makes no mechanically changes and the odometer remains 98% accurate. Do yourselves a favor and take a few minutes to check it out.

Here's a link to the Group buy on Stromtrooper:
