Wicked Ta Daaaaa!! New project

Guess what I just picked up for 800 bucks



Apparently when the dude's wife said "Do whatever the F@k you want" it didn't quite mean what he thought it did (he only had it 5 days and four of them were spent advertised on CL)



It does need a little work, but I should have it up and running soon enough. New tubes, tires, levers and grips are on order

I have bit of work to do first, but we can hook up for a ride and swop bikes for a while if you like.

It's just a little 125 though that I want the missus to learn to ride dirt on, so you may be a little disappointed, but I think it's perfect for what it bought it for.

Once the missus wants a bigger bike, I've got dibs on that!



Nice score. I have a TTR125 which has way less power and much shitier suspension than that thing and I love it.

Those TTR's are great, I've ridden the 230 before, they're NOT the quickest but they're so sure footed that on tough rides you'll get to the end quicker than most others and with far less energy expenditure

So did you get the track to view on your nuvi?
On some GPS' it will create a generic .img file in your root directory when you upload it from Mapsource or Basecamp. What you'll want to do is go into your GPS' directory and simply rename that file to something that you'll remember (like Toroweap.img) That way, the next time you upload a map it wont override that map you've created.

I took it to the Coke Ovens ride last year and had a blast!



However, it's a bit too small for some.

I'm not sure how I'm going to get it all in either. Work is very busy this week and I have family stuff in the evenings that is going to put a damper on getting prepared for the ride. I'll fit it in somewhere though. Can't wait!

That looks like a lot of fun. You'll have to go show me where it is sometime when it gets a little cooler

However, it's a bit too small for some.

Gulliver in the land of Lilliput? I"m think I'm gonna look like that on the little 125 aswell

That TTR looks like alot of fun. I had ridden the F650 and the KLR in the box canyon area, but it wans't until I rode the XR250 out there that I had fun. Those light little bikes are a blast.
Yeah I've been trying for the past few days to squeeze the entire Tonto National Forest service maps into the little Oregon but haven't been able to yet. I'll get it eventually.

A tip for navigating with a car designated unit is to not try and overwhelm it. You can hook it up to Basecamp and basecamp will read whatever map you have installed on it. A lot of the marked dirt roads like the one going up to Young will be on the unit so there's really no need to make a custom map for it.

There's a catch though.

Since your nuvi does not accept tracks or routes you'll have to simply upload waypoints to it and let the unit do point A to B calculations.

Remember how on Loren's GPS I was able to extract a GPX file called "current" which had all of his Favorites waypoints? Well all you have to do is create whatever waypoints you want in Basecamp and save that file as "current.gpx" and replace that file in your GPS.

Here's an example. Let say you are going to Young. If you ask your Nuvi to take you to Young this is what it will do:


View Larger Map

It will route you down the 60 through Miami and North up the 188.

But since that's not what you want and you'd like it to go through the Apache trail, you'll have to select a different intermediate waypoint to get the GPS to do what you want it to. Route it from your initial destination to a point along the route that will force the GPS to go where you want it to go. Save that waypoint as waypoint "1.1" (which is day 1 leg 1. That way it's easy to find in your favorites folder)

Your 1.1 waypoint should take you from initial point A to this point B:


View Larger Map

So once you arrive at that 1.1 waypoint you can then go to your favorites folder and upload.....tada! Waypoint 1.2 which would be a route you made from point A(1.1) to point B(1.2)


View Larger Map

It's really simple once you get the hang of it. I actually do this as a backup on all my multi day street rides just in case for any reason any of my routes or tracks don't want to cooperate.

oh, and also go to your settings and check your "avoidances" settings. You'll want to make sure that dirt roads are not checked.

Let me know if something's not clear and I'll try to explain it better.

Laugh Progress

I started on "project 125" today and wanted to share my progress with you guys.

I took off the old grips (they were badly perished and coming apart in my hands)


I cleaned up the throttle assembly, lubed the throttle and clutch cables, put on new grips, brake lever and bar pad.


Then I started on the airbox. The inside of the filter was mouldy and perished and the whole thing looked terrible.


Much better


I also cleaned out the carburetor, but it was such a PITA to get to with the long range tank on it that by the time I had it out and open I just did the job and forgot to take pictures.

Next up I'm gonna mount some new rubber and replace the tubes (I don't know how old they are and don't want them perishing in the middle of nowhere). I also still have to repack the muffler and replace the brake fluid, after that she should be good to go.

None of my business but if it was mine - change the fork oil & seals and shock oil, grease the steering head bearings, swingarm and linkage, put anti-seize on the chain adjuster bolts, change the spark plug, change the trans oil & coolant, fresh gas, check the reeds and perform a leak down test.
