I went through that section and it took me FOR-EVER!! I'll bypass it this time if it's still in there. Wasn't that about the worst part of the whole ride? It stands out in my mind and I can't think of other bad parts.

Question

Are these going to be standard roll charts, meaning we can use any motorcycle roll chart holder?

Thx

Yes any roll chart holder will work. Hope you have different tires by then. That one turn Sunday was not pretty.

I first thought that was a roll chart made from a cigar box but then I realized...it's not a KLR

No sir not pretty or fun. I just locked up as long as could to scrub speed and then released at the very end to try and salvage some steering. Close call, but survived it, barely. You saw how slow I went the rest of that road ; )

And yes, been pricing dirt wheels for a few days now.

R11STEW rode back from Cedar Key to Flagler on Sunday with DrZ/FIL/me.....
IIRC he got an award for the oldest bike....and yes, it was a cigar box.
He was glad DrZ and myself had GPS's and did all the navigating that day!
He was a little frustrated!!!



Oh.......IN!!!!!

Doesn't mean we didn't take note. I think Inept has one made with a Pall Mall box.
