Re: JD/TPS tuner for EFI bikes

J&J, Thats awesome! I *COMPLETELY* agree that a WBO2 is the only way to do it right. I have a bunch of Innovate Motorsports WBO2 sensors in the cars. I have an old LC-1 w/ the tailpipe adapter that we've used on four stroke street bikes to tune the carbs. I'd love to try it on the 150 but I'd have t...

Re: Ocala FL

Riding the SurRon more has further reinforced my realization that due to my mountain bike upbringing I simply may never be good at finding/using a foot brake. Old dog/new tricks something or other they say. That big long up/u-turn around the tree/down the steep hill trials section near the Dupont es...

Re: Ocala FL

I said "etc";) Most critical things are ordered except the full wrap handguards. I'll destroy controls w/ the flimsy stock guards (BTDT.) Not settled on which ones to get yet. I have the BRP hand guard mounts on one of the other bikes and it runs into the clutch hose pretty bad (I need to cut it for...

Re: Ocala FL

I'll try! I have on my 'todo list' to mount my other quadlock mount on the 150 so I can get to my cellphone cam quick. I also have a rugged Olympus TG6 pocket cam that should survive me repeatedly falling on it.

breaking in the new 500 Stephen?
Not enough time to get it ready unfortunately. Skid plate/etc won't be here in time. I've decided to take the 150XCW since its >20kg lighter than my older 500 (and Dan's 2016 500!). Knowing him, we'll be picking up and pulling the bikes out plenty.

Re: Ocala FL

Nice Jed! The B&B is booked. 27th-4th. FL here we come! Need to figure out how to hang the ~14' kayak inside the van this weekend. Ordered a Shinko 540 earlier this week. Hope that's decent enough. Phoo, yeah I understand sand is going to get everywhere. Bike is going to have to get a thorough clean...

Re: Ocala FL

Yeah, I'm debating which bike to bring. I'd prefer the 150 since its so light and knowing Dan we won't stop until we have to pull bikes out of it (likely several times). I've already ordered a sand tire (Shinko 540) but will have to decide which to put it on.

Re: Ocala FL

I've never ridden in sand. The guys in the Dakar make it look easy so I'm not too worried. :killingme:

Ocala FL

Buddy and I are going down to ride in the sugar sand in the Ocala Nat Forest in FL at the end of this month. Exact dates not final but will include the weekend of the Feb 29/Mar 1 for sure. 6 days or so. We'll have an AirBnB booked if anyone wants to come down and split the cost. Short notice and va...
