Ok, thanks guys. I can ride a little easier now. Still haven't hit any dirt with the D606s. The lack of public land to ride any where near me is starting to drive me nuts... They're going to be bald before I can give them a proper run through.

There's definitely good stuff to be had, I'm just horribly located. The trails in Logan County are 3.5 hours away. The nearest national forest is about 2 hours away. Not being able to run through some trails after a long day of work is a bummer. Riding 2 lane is... insufficient.

If yes, where did you put and what's the vibration like?

I have a mount on my helmet but there's only a few places up front you can mount it to the bike (windshield, beak, beside the signal light below the windshield).

The windshield has too much vibration but I'm not sure about the beak. Beside the left signal light looks solid too but it obstructs the signal light.

Any ideas?
I have mounts on both my helmets and it's pretty good while standing up, but when I sit down the buffeting and vibrations makes the film unsteady.
I've made a ram mount for it, but I haven't been able to get it working properly yet.

Had it mounted to my luggage rack, but the vibrations makes the picture dance. Really wierd. Like if you're on drugs. Not the good kind.

Once on gravel roads the bumps just made the RAM's move and "fall" over so all I got was 10 seconds film backwards or forwards and the camera is falling over in a couple-three stages untill it's laying flat and filming the ground as it goes by...

Still thinking of options and think maybe the chest harness is the best sollution

Low front fender

Thinking of buying the Touratech low front fender. Anybody (except Kdennan ) have any experience with it? Does it offer any protection from water spray, or is it just a gimmick? Someone somewhere mentioned that it increased turbulence at highway speeds. Any truth to that?

Thank you

I have a similar one that is a twin sensor, it's my second one, the first one lasted many years.
Sorry I was just searching tool setups and thought I would help.

I will be heading out on my first camping trip with the Sertao at the end of the month into the San Rafael Swell, in southern UT, I was curious about a basic tool setup other than the factory tools in the little bag, I also have front and rear tubes, patch kit, tire irons, is there any other suggested tools? I will be with a group of Land Cruisers, so it may not really be necessary, However it would be nice to have a reference.
Thanks!

I have a low fender, but I don't think it's a Touratech, mine is BMW, I don't think it gives any water protection, it's cut too far up in the back, I have added a 4" mudflap to the existing stock piece, it may not help much at higher speeds, but who knows...
I think the low fender helps more for rocks being thrown up into the radiator.
I haven't noticed any extra turbulence either.
Best of luck!

Thank you, but still looking for the Touratech Front Low Fender feedback. It's different than the BMW one.

Aerostich Compressor

Swamp,

How did that Aerostich Compressor work out for you on the trip? Just ordered one. Mostly good reviews, except that there is a problem with the ON/OFF switch. What was your experience?

Thank you

well,
after mounting 4 tires with it... and changing two flats. id say it worked pretty damn good! it gets really hot. not sure why people are bitching about the switch though. they probably jammed it in the bottom of a giant aluminum box and put their computer and printer and bowling ball on top of it... then hit a speed bump in the walmart parking lot

one thing i was kind of like "eww thats not cool" is where the two wires mount to the motor. they are exposed and could very easily be torn away or damaged. not sure what can be done about it... how about you figure out something that will protect it then let the rest of us know

hope this helps!

oh,
here is a link to the mexistan and central bunghole ride report i just started
