    What is this now? 3rd annual? Sounds good to me!!! May 29-31 which is a bit later this year. Someone snaked the campground back in November and we were unlikely to get a permit anyways because the nature lady (Danette) said that that first week in May was a bit early for the tortoise hatchlings. So it will be a bit warmer but we'll manage. It's at a higher elevation (4300') so that will help. Great news is we have Stephen Gregory back on photography and Tracy King back on kitchen duty! Tickets here Sponsors: (TBD; more of the same and a few new ones) Attendees: Eric Hall

    So if this event were scheduled for this weekend I'd be cancelling it due to concerns of covid19. I'm seeing a bunch of other events being cancelled. Not a bad idea at this early stage as social distancing can mitigate the spread very well. I read about the Spanish flu of 1918 and how Milwaukee fared so much better because they closed schools and churches. But we are 11 weeks out now so I'm guessing we will know a whole lot more about the spread then. For now we are still ON!

    This looks cool! To me this looks like a much needed upgrade in visibility and function that you'd expect from Garmin. The display looks bigger and brighter and more interactive. It seems easier now to share tracks either wirelessly between devices like before but also with an app on your phone. Lots of cool new features too like satellite imagery, 4x4 trails, public lands boundaries, real time gas prices and traffic updates. $499.99. Who wants to test one?

    After 800 miles clutch springs had collapsed. Replaced clutch with rekluse and rode a 1000 miles through Baja. No issues with new clutch yet. The quality of their after market product is way superior to the factory junk.

    So the Sonora Rally started yesterday. Ricky Brabec is racing along with Skyler Howes, Wes VanNiewenhuise, Dan Bart, Taye Perry and more. Stage 1 results here but it's Skyler, Colton Udall and then Ricky Brabec. Dan Bart did really well along with Taye Perry. Wes did fine despite tower mount issues they've since fixed so today should be better for him He's racing a 790R put together by Rottweiler Performance.

    I saw this announcement the other day and it looks like a really solid GPS. I have the BMW Nav VI on my bike and have had the ghost touching issue that Garmin can't seem to figure out how to fix. I'm hoping the XT is a sign of what a possible replacement could be. As much as I enjoy having the wonder wheel on my bike to control GPS if the XT is better all around I'd consider ditching the BMW branded Garmin in favor of this one.

    Mojave is SO much more fun on a small bike. You're free to ride whatever you like as long as it is street legal.

    Being a near-dead of questionable ability, I was wondering if this event would be open to folks who would rather ride a dual sport over an adventure bike. Though I have a Yamaha S10, I am more comfortable on my KLR or my KLX 400. This applies even more so when encountering sandy stretches as the Mojave so graciously provides. Mikey

    So moral of the story is you can sit on the patio at PSR enjoying a frosty IPA while texting your buddy who lost the bet and has to set up your camp all without cell service. I need one!

    @Spencer Hill and @robmaxjohn just came out with a new ADV ride-sharing site (similar to ADVTracks?) called ADVWeekend you should check out. They've featured this Beyond Starbucks Gold route and there are quite a few others you can peruse. If you have a favorite route you'd like to share or would like to find one, give their website a look!

    MNP called me to say due to the Wuhan virus we cannot have the event. That could change if the situation improves but makes it difficult to plan. I still have the site and can have 10 riders so I’m likely to make it a small group now.

    Basically the screen thinks it's being touched so it acts all erratic and is rendered useless. It seems it's isolated to the BMW branded Garmin Navigator VI. Fortunately Garmin is aware of the issue and will replace it. It just stinks because I've heard of a few guys that have had 3 or 4 of them replaced.
