I know. can you believe the stories of people just left to fend for themselves?!

so, on Veterans Day, I propose a commitment to never leave a rider behind. no matter how much they've pissed me off previously. nobody on a ride of mine need ever worry about that.

sorry about your experience, tom.

Don,

I bet we would be hard pressed to find too many people we know who would leave someone stranded

How many bikes do you have and what other ones are you selling?

I have all next week off and want to ride some Forest Roads out by Lake Roosevelt.

Let me know if anyone wants to ride Monday or Tuesday. I want to either ride up to Aztec Peak, or ride past the Indian Cliff Dwellings off of NF203.

You should get yourself a secondary base map which shows you all of the forest roads. You can download the entire Tonto Forest maps here.

You'll want to choose Tonto_South_Albers which contains the area that you're talking about.

Warning: They are very large files. If you have a GPS that will accept custom maps you can divide the area you will be riding into separate chunks, overlay them onto google earth and then create kmz files to import into the unit. I've already done this and it works pretty well so if you have a unit that accepts these custom maps I can email you the files so you don't have to do the work yourself.

ps. work sucks. Have fun.

Those files would be great. I downloaded the AZ Topo from GPSFILEDEPOT.com. I have a Garmin Nuvi 205. It accepts the maps, but I can't import tracks.

I'm not a fan of topo maps. I think they are a clusterfuck of info that you really don't need when you're out riding. But they do provide a certain amount of additional info that your regular base map doesn't have.

The 205 really sucks as an off road unit but you can make it work with some massaging. You will not be able to simply drop these maps into that unit.

Best thing you can do is get familiar with how to make map overlays with imgtogpx. I can show you how it works when we do your suspension.

That will be great. I am looking at the Garmin 60CSX, but I don't want to spend any money on that when I can upgrade my bike.

Is backpage any better?

(A few months away from selling my 2011 Shadow and replacing it with a Tiger or KTM twin.)

I happen to like backpage over craigslist because they allow firearms listings. CL prohibits them.

Different administrative perspectives will yield a different type of site visitor.

and they have hookers! don't forget the hookers.

Really wish I could pull the trigger on your strom, Paul. It would make a great addition to my garage. But I don't think I could make it happen right now.
