    CRF1100L Coming?

    I’ll take the rally concept for sure! I sat on the Adventure Sports model and kinda got a pregnant guppy vibe 😂

    Taste of Dakar 2019

    Also why couldn’t I find anything on their website about the cancellation? And the event link from a Jan 17 post goes nowhere.

    Taste of Dakar 2019

    Let’s be honest. There really wasn’t much Dakar to taste here. I’ve attended the last 3 years and although the newer location in Goldpoint is much better, the structure of the event provides zero “rally”components. Like I said the current venue is super cool, the terrain is great and it draws a group of really cool people. But it is pretty pricy for what really amounts to 1 day of riding on mostly maintained roads. The Cycle World Rally down in Julian was more of a taste with its team based structure, waypoints, and point scoring system. (Oh and don’t forget the bottomless sand) And it was dirt cheap for two VERY full days of riding, printed maps & navigation aid books. Alt Rider’s event has a TON of potential but misses the mark a bit for me. So all in all, I won’t be super disappointed to get my refund for this years event.

    So the wife and I went down to Riverside last night to watch the film. I’ve reviewed the tracks and aside from the section between Yuma & Blythe (that’s @Jason R‘s territory) I’ve ridden every section of this route at one time or another. Stringing all these areas together would be great fun. However considering this is billed as a “winter route” I have concerns about potential snow on Hunter Mtn in DV and Wyman/Silver canyons near Bishop. There are alternate go-arounds but those are must see stops IMHO.

    GPX 5.5 Enduro Jacket from Leatt

    No. That is a completely different armor set up than I have. I’ll try and get some pics up

    GPX 5.5 Enduro Jacket from Leatt

    It can’t sit on top of a jersey because it keys into the body armor

    GPX 5.5 Enduro Jacket from Leatt

    Thought about starting another thread for my question but even though this one is old, its got a lot of good related info already existing, so here we go... I have a Leatt GPX 5.5 neck brace and Leatt Adventure body armor (same as the 5.5 armor but w/o the extra flank protection). Taking out the removable sections of upper armor makes the neck brace lock into the suit perfectly, super secure and very comfortable. Here is the problem, you can't wear a jersey over top of the armor due to the way the brace locks into it. You also can't wear a jersey under the armor because of the compression suit, second skin fit. So what is everyone else doing? I can cut the neck out of my jerseys to make it fit, but why am I spending $50 on a nice one just to cut it up?

    New Yamaha Concept: T7

    You beat me to it Nerb. Same exact concerns that I had - The problem is, this thing has been so long in the making that the hype may have exceeded the final product. It's always riding a fine line when trying to implement a perfectly timed marketing plan. The T7 is way overdue... I may be biased since I ride the best off-road focused adv bike ever made; 2005.5 KTM 950 Adventure.

    I didn’t see near as many promos for this ride than the others you have put together. I can’t be the only one and If that’s the case, you just didn’t get the exposure. For me this time it was mostly work, and then I broke the bike... but also, there seems to be a lot going on right now, Baja rally and others recently. Sept, Oct & Nov always are my busiest months.
