Wow!

You guys are going to have so much fun. I got to ride with Trailtoad last month and a day hasn't gone by since, that I haven't thought about that ride.

Take lot's of pictures for us. The trails are great.

If you give it a try anyhow, be sure to take a camera and let us know how it goes

Hello,

Yep, you need to take a m/c safety class approved by the Navy to ride a bike through base.

Thanks again,

Eek Kml?

Has anyone converted the DV GPX info to KML?

No, KML is not a clapped out, butt ugly, 16hp dual sport made by Kawasaki, that is usually driven by guys with beards and pocket protectors.

KML is the file format for Google Earth.

Hoping this is already around, but I might have missed it in the 4500 posts in this thread? If you have, and want to share, let me know.

Cry Out :-(

Been looking forward to this... but now I am on the injured reserve list. While out learning how to ride my dirtbike better yesterday, I neglected to learn how to crash better.

Result: Bike/Terrain - 1, Rider - 0. Fractured wrist (left). Surgery on Tuesday. Many weeks of recovery to follow... and I'm left handed.

#42 Bogeyman.

I was down to bring an EZUp - if anyone is near me in Central Marin (94904) and wants to pick it up... PM me.

not sure if this applies but my understanding is you need a mil (itary) spec safety vest to ride on the base. Not sure if it applies to uninformed civilians on dirt bikes

spare 21" standard weight spare tube.

Lifted this off a another post....
<<http://www.motionpro.com/motorcycle/...tire_iron_set/ and the Wolfman bag: http://www.wolfmanluggage.com/Enduro/EnduroFender.html) and I have a question. Clearly none of the front fender bags are big enough for two spare tubes and it looks like prevailing forum-wisdom suggests packing only the 21" front tube. Is this because in an emergency you can stuff the 21" in the 18" rear rim? >>>

I was at Scotts Performance today and he mentioned that was a go if you don't have the space while out riding, but you need to go with the standard weight tube. I guess the 21" tube will inflate around a smaller 18" tire since the tire is physically wider and therefore will stretch - working as an emergency tube on the smaller 18" and double duty for the 21" wheel. Spent $7 on a Kenda tube. someone else on the thread suggested putting the tube in a wool sock to keep the tube from rubbing against something.

DV is for the most part an easy cruise...but it does eat tubes....

Bring a front and a rear tube....
