Hey everyone I'm iut of the florida area and in 29 palms for a few weeks and am renting a 1200gs out of palm springs this weekend. Any rides I can tag along on this weekend? I might not do overnight but could be persuaded I did bring my camping gear!

Hijinks Scrambler?

Am I going to be able to make this ride on a Triumph Scrambler? I have ridden Black Canyon Rd, Nate Harrison Rd, and Boulder Creek Rd. I am looking at the map and what about those trails marked in red? Is it a sand issue or rocky, steep climbing issues?

I need to retract this statement. I looked on their website to find out WTF happened, there was the same UPS tracking number for the oil seals and a tire I ordered.

I thought it was a mistake, but I wandered out to my shop and lo and behold there were my seals, in a baggy behind the packing slip on the tire.

They still fudged on a set of KTM heated grips, though.
Delivery took too long and they canceled the order on me.

Oh well, at least my KLR will be back in action this evening.

Not sure where I posted this, thought it was here.... I'm chasing for a team in the mex1K. Drive back puts me back just in time to pack and run. I have to have motor back together in two weeks to have it ready.... not sure just now and if the girls will be ok with it. I'm 50/50 now.

HAHA. I'm going to start on the bottom end tomorrow. The cyl at least has to go out for a new slug (102), maybe I have the existing back together for the ride and wait to do all the cool S to spare #1. I really want to have the NX2nd gear and the kicker on there. Mostly just for cool factor. Guess coolness will have to wait!!
