It was, yes. I always wanted one and finally bought one, after getting it, I determined it wasn't the bike for me.


It did sound amazing though.

I got my "30" today and mounted it and my saddle bags to the GSA. What's your ETA at the Pan? I'll meet you for chow but then I gotta get back for some chores. You can check out my Kreiga setup in the AM.

I got the trouble fuse block replaced on the DRZ so that little problem should a thing of the past.

I'll either be on RT33 changing out a fuze block on a DRZ, or maybe at WaWa in Dahlgren tightening a leaky sprocket on KTM...but more than likely I will be somewhere in the tristate (KY, TN, VA) border

Gps 101

Have you ever gazed into that black box that sits perched on your handle bars wondering what it might be capable of? Do you find the most magnificent roads by mistake, then want to follow a bread crumb back? Are you a descendant of a famous cartographer with a zeal for mapping the known/unknown?

Anyhow, some folks asked a while ago about maybe sharing some GPS mapping info. While I freely admit that I am a self-taught mapper, I've never got us so lost Blaster never saw home again any of my wild goose chase GPX tracks. I believe that this course will get you a solid start to mapping, and should solve 95% of your ADV needs.

8 June 9 June (Sunday) was the preferred date, but happy to offer additional classes if that better suits the masses. For now, we'll host at the house (unless someone has a better location in mind?).

Course title: First dive into mapping using Garmin's Basecamp & Zumo series GPSs (GPS 101)
What you should bring:
Laptop with external mouse
Download and install Garmin's Basecamp v 4.1.2. (It's free)
GPS unit
GPS cable

Length of course: About 1-1.5 hrs

Targeted User: Beginner/Novice

Style: This will be hands-on. I'll demonstrate the below skill, then give you 10-15 mins to practice each one. If you don't have a laptop, I can let someone share mine. All are welcome, if you just want to come and watch.

Cost: Nothing, nada, zippo (except for your good humor!)

Curriculum :
GPS 101-Using Garmin's Basecamp
I. Welcome to basecamp
A. Core nav functions
1. Map detail & Map product
2.Setting Preferences for motorcycle
B. Getting around

2. Panning using hand icon or compass
C. Setting up file structure (folders & lists)
1. Using file menu

3. Unique naming convention
II. Routes

C. Make a 2-pt route using two hand placed flags
D. Naming flag points
E. Make a multi-flag route
F. Joining multiple routes
III. Tracks

Now that's funny. A few years back, a few of us did the Hogies Heroes Saddle Sore. There was one rider, whom had a brand spanking new Zumo 550.

He was artfully trying to rubber band turn-by-turn directions onto the Zumo which were hand written on 3 x 5 inch cards. Seems he didn't know use the Zumo, but he thought it was a nice backlight for the cards

If I hadn't put the route on Gail's GPS for him, he would have had to use the printed directions.

It didn't really matter in the end as the GPS route was clearly flawed. It led us right to a state park in PA for some reason....
