    I dropped her again.

    Those u-turns will surprise you every time! Something I do fairly often is take some time and practice them. This goes back to when I was teaching MSF. I used my FJR and my HD softtail to demo the exercises (taught on base, no MSF trainer bikes provided for that scenario). In an empty...

    FJR1300 Eastern Owners Meeting - 2022 - Flatwoods, WV - September 15-18th, 2022

    Raven17 - good catch; I am able to leave the registration open for the banquet until Monday - Monday is when I need to provide the headcount guarantee to the hotel for the meal. That said, most of the time, I can add guests to the meal count until the day before the banquet on a case by case...

    I know I'm going to spend more $$ this year on gas for this trip. I've prepared for that by trimming here and there, and know that it is going to be the best return on investment I see all year in the miles I ride and the smiles, laughs, and good times shared with the group at EOM. My LZ is...

    Great Question - I'll try to explain. The single zip file that can be downloaded from the EOM website (here) contains a single compressed GPX file. A GPX file is the commonly used map / route format by Garmin GPS products (Garmin Zumo, etc). That single GPX file contains the 6 routes that...

    FJR1300 Eastern Owners Meeting - 2022 - Flatwoods, WV - September 15-18th, 2022

    What: 2022 FJR1300 Eastern Owners Meet (EOM) The venue and staff in Flatwoods was just too good to pass up a round 2. It has been a while since I've had such a positive experience with interactions with a venue staff and management. It takes what can be a very stressful behind the scenes time...
