    2019 Gap Trip.

    Anyone know if the Motor units are using hand held stationary measuring devices on the bikes or do they have some latest tech moving devices. Not that it matters to me. I will be on the back dirt country and two tracks.😊

    Great Doc, I hope I can show you some great ADV routes down near the gap. O-Shit, Waite, You did not buy a new V-Strom did you. Had to have that cruze control.

    Hyper pro shocks. Anyone used them?

    I have had, Progressive, Ohlins and some may remember S&W street stokers all twin shocks and I feel Hyper Pro & Wilbers are top shelf build quality and with the add on up grade features to allow easy fine tuning. I am happy with my money spent. Again this is just an opinion of a old fart and I am sure anything you upgrade to will be just fine. Good luck, I hope you are happy with what ever you decide. B.

    Hyper pro shocks. Anyone used them?

    I currently have a Hyper pro 461custom $1300 built to my needs rear shock and I also had a custom $1200 Wilbers 629 rear shock on my 04 Strom. Naturally with proper front spring/fluid and emulators. Klaus Huenecke at EPM is a master and will help you thru the process. I haven't upgraded my Z1000 other that spring at both ends and fluid change since I mostly ride it with my wife on her Spyder and that could be handled with a hard tail. Klaus also gives you one free rebuilt during the life of the shock. YMMV http://epmperf.com/

    Appalachian backroads - free route maps

    I have hit all but roadrunner and skull cracker. Most all of these have great ADV connector routes that are great and can be FUN. Max's, Do you have 4 to 6 day's to ride the KAT in 2016?

    Shoop Buys a Thumper

    I sold my 2004 back in 2011. Great purchase Chris. For ADV and Desert work it could use a 6th gear but Yamaha would loose sales of the extremely popular wr250. I changed gearing and was able to run with the Honda 650 on the fast Desert roads out west. It can be a beast in the Ohio single track woods for old farts. There is a gray wire mod you may want to do and also the standard carb stuff. For great information check out: https://thumpertalk.com/forums/forum/12-wr400f426f450f/ YES to the WR450's 04WR450 by

    Sunday 25th. Nov ADV Ride

    Hocking Hills: Low of 42 tonight High of 57 on Sunday. Start at 10am with some low speed two track and gravel with speed at or below 45 with a lot of body movement on the bike. Perfect conditions unless you fall in one of the flooded road sections and get wet. 😁 It's all good
