  2. Last week
  3. Pretty cool, we want more :)
  4. Got a new podcast up at Spotify and Apple. Got a few episodes up now on: Who I am and what is XLADV So you want to become and adventure motorcyclist? Trail etiquette Group rides GPS Forums have the depth that social media like TikTok, Instagram and Facebook don't have so with forums suffering declines in traffic, I thought I'd do something like this. I've been wanting to do one for a long time but was caught up on the tech part; particularly hosting the audio file but I found a good app for that: Anchor. This is a hobby for me, not my full time job. I do it because it's fun. I hope you enjoy it and would love to get your feedback as well as ideas for new topics and guests.

  6. New rotors, sprockets, chain, gear shift arm, pads and soon a new battery (think my usb plug is a parasitic drain). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I got a tip on avoiding this issue from a KTM tech on the east coast. He says the vent lines get clogged and you can clean them (2) by blowing air (having a compressor helps) down the vent lines. He says the lines get hot then cold, wet then dry and wet again and will attract dust particles and clog over time much like your blood vessels with cholesterol. It's a good tip but I don't know how many people really do this, nor how many shops will do this as regular service. Nor do I know of other motos this is a problem on. My guess would be larger diameter lines may be a better solution?
  8. Always a great time at the High Sierra Rally , Thanks Eric for putting together a great event in the most beautiful place in the world !
  9. Had an awesome time 👍
  10. This link shows some fuel dangerously shooting out of the fuel cap when opened: https://www.instagram.com/reel/CiMAtMqs0PB/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link It's caused by heat boiling the gas. Not sure if this is normal yet so many report it happens a lot. My anonymous friend says he saw it a lot when testing the early 790's and 890's. Other friends with 1290's report the same issue. Haven't seen it on other bikes. Some say the "vent got pinched" but I am not sure what the true story is. Another recent development with this platform is of course the Norden 901. Great bike too and designed to extend the market beyond what KTM alone can reach. That's a good and smart thing. We all want more adv motos being sold to new riders. The differences are truly minor but I find it funny how the moto press falls all over themselves trying to tell us how VERY DIFFERENT the two are. Okay. And then in case you missed it, there's a company called CF Moto selling basically the Chinese 890. They are KTM's mfg partner in China. Nothing wrong with it but I go back to my point that most motos in the world are made in China BUT they're usually $3,000. If KTM wants to make a moto in China (or India) that's fine but it'd BETTER BE F'ING PERFECT because I'd expect a discount on the bike if made there.
  11. Hi there, same here they wouldn't let me register without a CA based insurance. What I did is contract the cheapest one I could, uploaded the contract and cancelled it 2 weeks later after receiving the registration card. It cost me $60 (the insurance) in total so that's not too bad. I'll have to redo the same next year though... Cheers.
  12. I should have done a five year with AZ but did a two year. They sent me a letter saying they don’t show it is insured so they’re cancelling the registration. But it’s in Colombia and US insurance doesn’t cover it. I may as well take $500 and light it on fire? I may get it insured to get my new tags and then cancel the insurance. Doesn’t matter if they cancel my registration again; all I need are currently tags when crossing borders. John Howard told me he set up an llc in Montana and all his vehicles are plated there. I may do that next. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. $2,850 sent to Motorrad Angels
  14. @greedyg No worries man, we'll be riding again.
  15. Please feel free to download and share but tag #offroadunderground and #xladvhighsierra2022 please.
  16. Sorry to hear that, Chris. Hope you heal up soon. I will be in touch Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. I won't be making it. I've had ups and downs with mild degenerative disc disease for a while. Usually I'm fine but this has been one of those down weeks. Bike is packed but my back and nerves aren't yet feeling up to the 6 hr solo ride in the heat. Have fun guys.
  18. Anyone have a water cooler? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. As of today it looks like 47 of us in total. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Okay ery body! Tracks posted in a link in the first post of this thread. Was going to put them on the FB event page but FB is jacking me around about what my “location” is. [emoji2359]. I ride a motorcycle around the world. My location is where I am everyday. Got some new Dunlop swag, Motopockets prizes and word that Harley is giving much better test rides this year PLUS a guided adventure ride. You can’t get that with any other bike.

  21. Another fantastic rally in the books! Thanks to all who attended and helped us raise $2,850 for Motorrad Angels. I think that's a per rider record of $60.70! You're all very generous! Weather this year was hotter than normal. I was a somewhat normal high of about 89 at camp but the nights/morning lows were well above prior years; 40 vs low 20's and that wasn't so bad. John Howard had brought some wood but I noticed many didn't even have fires and were wearing tshirts and shorts up until going to sleep. As far as I know we had no injuries other than a scraped nose. No drama and that's always a good thing! Photos by Simon Cudby of OffroadUnderground are up at the gallery and they're the best I've ever seen. Feel free to download and share and please tag offroadunderground, xladv and xladvhighsierra2022.
  22. Just sent $370 in pre-sold raffle tix to Motorrad Angels. Plenty more raffle tix available at rally. I guess we'll see another $900 there.
  23. Getting a ride with Peter Thursday! So happy to find a way to get it all done. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Right.... so have a good buddy who was going to not just trailer me up and said he'd provide food for anyone who wanted but unfortunately something came up for him of an importance that outweighs our rally (and I'm 100% fine with that). However, I'm now looking to see if I can get my moto on someone's trailer. I will need to drive my car because I've got the prizes, cooler, beer, water, camping gear, etc... If not then I'm just driving up sans moto. Maybe Harley will let me borrow one of theirs. I reached out to @David Diaz who I heard may be coming but haven't heard back yet. My moto is here in Rancho Santa Margarita. Thx
  25. Join Adventure Glide on a fun ride through the Midland Tunnels outside Buena Vista, Colorado. And up into the 4-mile trails. The Midland Railroad Tunnels are a series of tunnels used by the Colorado Midland railway from the 1880s until its closure in the early part of the twentieth century. The tunnels ran between Colorado Springs, Leadville, and Aspen, carrying shipments of silver, iron ore, and supplies to Colorado pioneers.

    • This video came out a few weeks ago and says things we already know about how great this new bike is and how eagerly anticipated it is.

      It also points out some interesting things...

    • This mirror is the product of much frustration- I spent years breaking other designs and wondering what was going on behind me on the road. Eventually, when I dropped my bike and found myself buying two(!) new master cylinders as a result, I decided it was time to make a really good mirror, one that would function well as a mirror, and also protect the bike (and me) from damage.

    • Time, 05:15 h. My alarm clock rings and it’s time for me to get my breakfast in my stomach, take a shower and jump on my bike! The 1,5 hour drive to the TT race track in Assen took me to the TT junior track and the CRT Holland training ground for the CRE track training. Here I met with 37 fellow Suzuki riders. Greeting us where the men and women from Suzuki Motors Holland who set up this training day.
