    Suzuki V-Strom 1000 Adventure 2014

    Very fun bike - lots of torque - and a super value at around 12K. It’s definitly not a dirt bike but it’s very capable off road. It’s been great for me - mine is nearly all stock, including the seat! Ergonomics improved with 1/1 risers and lowered foot pegs.

    Eric, you said you’re heading up Thursday... does our registration cover Thursday night too? Not that it matters much - but at least I’ll know to stop at the office to pay - because I’m coming up Thursday too. Can’t wait!

    and the full video... This was one of those "hard but fun" trails and really glad we did it. We came back a lot quicker because we were familiar with the trail.

    Moab late September or early October

    Vacation around KTM rally requested and a new steed next to the Tenere.
  11. Last week
  12. 8-15 hours a day on pavement. About 4-8 hours off pavement. Longest time on a bike was 1000 miles in 18 hours on a Honda CBR600F, trying to stay ahead of the rain on bald tires from Italy to the Neverlands. Not something I would recommend on a sportbike.
  13. Well written and love the solo riding part! I did 987 miles once from Steamboat Springs, CO to Irvine, CA and would never do it again. Should have stopped in St. George, UT but "wasn't tired." Last week I did an IDBDR trip were I did 750 miles the first day from Irvine to Rome, OR and it actually wasn't too bad. I set out at 4:45 am and 87 was the max temp I had to endure so not too bad. On the way home Sunday I did 786 miles from Klamath, CA to Irvine and it was a bit more than I wished I had to do but got home just after midnight so not horrible. Like SF Demo about 5 hours or around 300 miles is what I'd prefer, especially on the 990. These guys on the GS's can do a lot more in more comfort than I can. With taller gearing, cushy seat, good fairing and street tires it's a LOT more bearable.

    Good morning! Got some cool news to share with you all. This past July we were able to attend Motorrad Days Germany 2018 and had the opportunity to be a exhibitor during the entire the event. We were able to share our story with others and had many people inquire about starting new chapters. Motorrad Angels now has a chapter in the UK! Our chapter captains are GS Trophy 2014 John and John who also are the owners of a company called Cool Covers. Tomorrow we are continuing to discuss getting the chapter all established and individuals involved. If you're living in the UK and want to be apart of an awesome cause please let me know! I also attached a link to Cool Covers to any of those who are curious about getting another sweet accessory for their bike. https://www.coolcovers.co.uk/
  16. My "normal" ride day is about 300 miles for my Tiger, serious off-road rides are about 40 miles (single track). I prefer to sneak off on weekdays so the traffic is much lower. I have frequently done over 500, but realistically, after 400, it is just to get where you're going, not enjoying the ride. I recently did about 4000 miles across Labrador, Newfoundland and Nova Scotia, where we averaged about 350 per day. Some days that was too much, some days too short, but we also busted out about 600 in transit one day. I like hitting diners and out of the way spots, following the road less traveled.

    Good evening everyone! Thought I would share with you all a cool video of a street performer in Medellin, Colombia. I know for myself at times it can be easy to miss little moments while riding through different cities. Being a Motorrad Angel can mean spending a lot of time in remote areas or quickly passing through major areas to arrive at a certain destination. But when we stop and enjoy all surroundings you get to catch and experience amazing pieces of another's culture. This person has some serious courage performing his stunt in the middle of street!

    I could go on and on about group rides but just two more things. One is pace. It's important for a ride leader or the larger pack of faster riders not to get too far ahead of the tail of the group. It's essentially a matter of how far do you want to have to ride back on the trail to find the rest of your group? I think we did a really good job of that this time but I've been guilty of that before by getting way too far ahead of the last rider. One guy was apologizing for his pace and it was totally unnecessary as he was barely 2-3 minutes behind us. Not a big deal at all. If you do happen to be a slower rider then you should absolutely go at your own pace and never feel shamed by anyone else for being the last guy. Another is having GPS, having the tracks and knowing how to use them. People get separated and sometimes we make wrong turns so it's very important when you're in the middle of nowhere to be able to see if you're on the right path or not. One guy I was with on another trip had some of the tracks but they were corrupted and usually halfway through the day he'd say "my tracks are gone." But too often we get riders who just want to follow and don't even bother and that's when you get problems. If you're a noob then that's understandable but if you've been riding more than a year then there's no reason you should still be GPS-phobic.

    Best Small Tents?

    Loving my Galaxi 2p also from NEMO but would love to try this Kunai (click for review) next. It's a bit smaller and packs super small!

    Really happy to have Rob Dabney and @Sharif Massoud with ADVPulse come out to High Sierra! Rob's a super great guy who's taught me quite a bit about riding and the industry and it's just good to have people like him and Sharif there, trust me. Head over to ADVPulse and tell a friend! About 20 spots left.

    The New BMW R1250 GS

    Not sure what to say here. It's essentially the same platform with 9% more power and about 2% more weight. My questions would be: Will this make the GS better off-road, worse or no different? Can we be certain the stanchions are truly fixed? What will this new weight and hp mean for the vulnerable drive shaft?

    Good morning from the East Coast! Just wanted to give more information about our chapter in India and the plan for our water projects. So as I mentioned before, our chapter captain Winston has assembled a team of fellow riders who are now all Motorrad Angels. It is truly amazing to see other adventure riders become apart of the team when all we ask is to do what you love but help someone along the way! They are actively locating areas throughout the country finding communities that have no access to clean drinking water. Once we know where individuals are located, we are able to plan the projects effectively. India is also facing a massive water scarcity issue at the moment and as a result a lot of the water available is contaminated. I've attached a short article that discusses the issue in more depth. Also here is a picture of our chapter in India! As always thank you all for the support! https://www.cnn.com/2018/06/15/health/india-water-shortage-crisis-intl/index.html

    The New BMW R1250 GS

    New details out today on this new bike: basically variable valve timing system, added 11lbs, raising the power to exactly 100kW (that’s 136PS or 134.1hp). That compares to 92kW (125PS or 123.3hp) for the existing R1200GS.

    Rally computer / dashboard

    Wish I had an answer for you but just am not familiar with this. I do think highly of the Trail Tech Voyager though. And I've used an ICO computer for rally raid racing but I think you're looking for something else.

    59 so far! Will have tracks up soon too.

    Ah so apparently even though the new tire is called Rallz they pronounce it “Rallys.”

    Hey Everyone! Hope everyone is out there riding safe and enjoying the season. Wanted to update everyone about the Motorrad Angels Team. We recently returned from Guatemala aiding the victims affected by Volcan de Fuego's eruption. We were able to provide the community within the area with clean water filters and air respirators. Along with our efforts, Motorrad Angels also teamed up with Third Wave Volunteers and Global Empowerment Mission to continue aid in remote regions that weren't accessible by car. Our GS 1200s were able to transport the like minded organizations to these communities. I attached some pictures below of our chapter Motorrad Angels Guatemala! Oh one other thing, we are gearing up and have begun fundraising for water projects throughout India and will be meeting our chapter captain Winston who rode for India in the GS Trophy. Please follow us on social media for even more updates and firsthand footage of our projects and if you're interested in joining please do!

    I got a set of the new Rallz tires and will put them on the 990 for the upcoming High Sierra ride and then the KTM Rally. Did a brief side by side on our Instagram feed a moment ago...

    • 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.
