i think that they were trying to move towards a 51% rule if I remember correctly, or at least you could carry but would not be allowed to drink

Other than an occasional oil filter, Ridenow carries nothing for my bikes. And anything they might carry or order for you is at full list price. As I said somewhere else, the only time I go to Ridenow is to try on a helmet that I want to order online. Rude, yes, but they haven't done me any favors over the years.

For small orders of stuff that's not time sensitive, Cheapcycleparts has the best price and low cost shipping. For larger stuff like bodywork, Cyclepartsnation has better parts prices, and competitive shipping charge (tho their minimum shipping for small stuff like seals is exorbitant.)

That is the current law. You can carry CCW if you don't drink alcohol and the business does not post "No weapons or CCW allowed"

Have you tried the store in Thumper talk - 2 to 3 day delivery to Tucson - their warehouse is in Vega - and they stock a lot of Suzy shit.

Ridenow

I just got back from Ridenow (on 22nd) and got a pleasant surprise. New policy there is to meet or beat online parts pirces. I needed a fork bushing, list was around 24 bucks plus tax, Cheapcycleparts w/shipping was $19.35, Ridenow charged me about $18.90 tax included. Part should be in by Wednesday, they say. Find the best deal including shipping online, take them a printout.

I suspect the same policy applies to tires & tubes.

This changes everything for how I'll get oem parts.

They do pretty damn well for noise canceling and music. The down side is that they start to make racket if wind is blowing on them. I'd wear them often while taking trains from/to Tucson, but if the window(s) were open I would have to switch to ear plugs. I really like them for air travel and for shooting.

A single tracklog post with a ride description is the best, a collection of similar tracks (e.g. DualSport) is next best, but a bunch of files containing thousands of uncategorized tracks isn't much different from just having a Topo map.

There's a classic example of this in the the "ADV Toronto Area MegaThread" where the poster asked everyone to send him their tracklogs and he would combine them into one master file. It's a joke - almost every road/trail in Ontario has a tracklog on it.

I started the DualSport Road/Trail Catalogs to help tie in tracks and actual roads by geocoding pictures showing typical trail sections.
Bob - I can't remember how to use your file as an overlay - how can I display 2 map sets at the same time?
