A quick CL glance pulled up this one for comparison purposes only. ;)

 

Yeah, but it's silver. That automatically discounts the bike at least 30% ;):dopeslap::rofl:

Well, I came home yesterday with a 03 F 650 GS for my son to ride.

Didn't make it to see the R bike, out of time.

 

Maybe when we get back from Iceland week after next?

You can always use FART as a test bed for the 650;)

 

When do you leave for Iceland? My wife's uncle leaves today for a 10 visit there.

Bud:

That is the bike I want to get my eldest daughter in a few years. She has sat on a few of them and her 65" frame seems to fit that bike well...even better than a Wee Strom.

Have never ridden one...yet.

Take care

Mike

For Thursday night "swap/sale", I'm bringing multiple moto books like Proficient Motorcycling 1, 2, Twist of the Wrist, more .

Also some gloves, jacket, pants,

Mesh, textile, men's and women's.

Helmets, M XL, W M, for sale inexpensive, Never know when you need to have one for a new riding person.

Would like to avoid shipping, but who knows.

I'll also bring a bike cover, AirHawks, and more.

 

Anyone looking to add mirrors to Hexhead GS, I think my OEM GT round mirrors work (?) for additional visibility.

Hi everyone, here is a link for FART 2017 Blairsville Routes

 

There are 3 routes that start with rides of about 100 miles to restaurants, then options for the returns as usual. There's also a short but great loop in case you get a late start.

 

 

Receiving Routes From Others.

 

Your maps and preferences may be different than those of the person you received them from, so to be sure you ride the intended route you must do the following or cuss me out when you return...if you return :rofl:

 

Open the GDB or GPX file in your software, then make duplicates of each route (usually a right click will show the option).

Change the color of the Duplicate route (usually double click, then go to

The Blairsville Witch is toying with us before we even start to START.

I put the Route post together and preview it, then I "Submit" and I get a blank post. I Edit and I get the same thing, yet I am able to post giving the Witch credit for the annoyance.

Perhaps the crafty lass is modifying your routes . . .

 

 

 

At least she didn't turn you into a Newt!

as of right now, I am in Arizona 9/20 - 9/26 with my father.

 

So taking Friday off that week is not happening. But I plan on riding up Saturday and staying for dinner and riding back Sunday.

I recently had an issue with blank posts, even though I could preview it just fine. In my case, I had a special character single-quote that might've been the result of a copy/paste or something else. Once I replaced each single-quote in my post, it worked!

Glad to have you join us Randy! There are some who say you're hedging your bets to see if the rest of us survive before you arrive! :shake::ohboy:

Open the GDB or GPX file in your software, then make duplicates of each route (usually a right click will show the option).

Change the color of the Duplicate route (usually double click, then go to "Info" and look there)

Note the mileage, then Re-calculate the Original route. The mileage should stay the same.

If the route mileage is different, look for the color you changed the Duplicate route to. You will need to add a Waypoint or Via point to the Original route to make it match the Duplicate route. Once the two routes are the same, delete the Duplicate route, then load the Original route(s) onto your GPS.

Whipped up a potion to remove the cloak of invisiblity from Kinsley's post. Wicked Witch got away, for now, so beware, your posts could become invisible, too. (Avoid special formatting, or pasting from other applications.)

I found my culprit...it was my new iPad Pro inserting a special single quote character. Apple! Ugh!! :mad:

Thanks Shannon, Bud and John - your funds (and others) have been received!

 

Just a teaser on the AWARDS EXTRAVAGANZA! Your hosts will be continuing and expanding the fun this Fall to make this FART a real Blow Out, complete with a new traveling trophy.

 

Details in due time, my little Pretty (and that goes for your silly bike too!!)

Randy,

A decision was made last time, or so, to move it to Friday becasue many left early Sunday and didn't go, or some left Saturday for long ride home.

A change, yes, but it seems to have worked out well.

Saturday evenning people will still get together, and eat.

 

I know a short cut to a really good place...

Dave, I've been meaning to ask, will the rooms have turn-down service at night, and hair dryers? I'm asking for a friend (Bob). :rofl:

Good question! Bob, Craig and Joel will be overjoyed to know that rooms are equipped with Hair Dryers. :lurk:

 

I've also been assured that Ms. B. Witch will be on hand to add her own 'personal touch' to the turn down service on each and every bed.

 

Given that there is a marked propensity for unusual "accidents" when Ms Blair is in town, one might secure the previously mentioned hair dryer when using the shower or tub. Just sayin' . . :wave:

Hey, I still have hair! It's just below my neck which makes a blow dryer take on new meaning.
