    Garmin Zumo XT install

    So I mounted it just left of center on the handlebar. I can adjust it so it is below the dash unit in my line of sight. I also bought one of those rubbery Ram mount tethers to go around the corners. The tab that keeps the zumo in place does not inspire confidence in me. It is amazingly...

    CE abrasion ratings explained

    The CE standards break the body into zones. The zones are rated by likelihood and severity of injury. For example, on the Kodiak 2 from Klim there is stretch in the area under the armpits, which cost them a level of rating. I personally don’t think there is any fluff in armor ads I see...

    CE abrasion ratings explained

    The toe and heel injuries are prevented mostly by stiff toe and heel counters. The foot twist is also prevented by a stiff sole. Lower leg / foot twist is hard to prevent without an extremely stiff upper shaft like you get on a motocross or track racer. CE certified boots must have stiff...

    CE abrasion ratings explained

    I have been studying boot certification to make a GWRRA presentation. I also read some injury studies. The most common (serious) foot injury on moto accidents is a metatarsal break. The metatarsal is the bone under the skin that connects the main foot to each toe. This commonly occurs either...

    2021: What did you do to/with your NC700/NC750 today?

    I installed the Garmin. I think I took way too many screws and pins off and it became dark and cold before I could get it back together. So I have a big bowl of screws and pins and don’t really remember which ones go where. I will have to study up. Also I had forgotten what a pain the...

    How about a game of NC tag? Its a lot of fun!

    “It’s about a 600 mile ride for me, one way, to get a picture of my NC by any sort of mountain!” Here we say, “Oklahoma, conveniently situated halfway between the mountains and the ocean.”

    How about a game of NC tag? Its a lot of fun!

    New tag: restaurant with a name describing something they serve. “The Cow,” Welch Oklahoma. I took a picture with some outdoor decorations but,they don’t show up well in daylight. Not sure if it’s open, between COVID and some road construction in the town.

    How about a game of NC tag? Its a lot of fun!

    New tag: A library. This one is the Johnston Public Library in Baxter Springs, Kansas. (named after the donor) My mother was born nearby and this library was her refuge from a tough family situation. A nice librarian befriended her and turned her into a life long reader.

    Beautiful day here, 60 (15), blue skies, almost no wind. I stopped at a nice spot and remembered I should check the current tag. Old railroad bridge: This is the old Frisco and trolley bridge across the Spring River in Baxter Springs, Kansas. It was abandoned by 1940 and has had no...

    would u pay $1000 to avoid a skinned knee??

    While riding off road one time on my drz 400 I hit a log in tall grass. The foot peg somehow smashed into my left ankle. I was wearing a very sturdy pair of dirt boots, fortunately. There was a deep gash in the hard TPU over my ankle. I look at that gash sometimes and think about my ankle.

    Whats the best accessory that you have added to your NC? What do you use the most?

    I guess the extra front lights. But I have added so many farkles it is hard to say. Sargent seat, heated grips, handlebar risers, skid plate, radiator guard, rear rack and box, engine guards.
