Dude. When’s the next ride?! I’m in!!! Plus I wanna check out your bike. Looks awesome. I’m way behind. Time and money goes to the Jeep and trailer.

Just went riding at lake arrowhead this morning. Rode down to silver wood lake.
Hit me up

Hey awesome pictures. And rides probably. Is that a Garmin GPSMAP66? How well does that work out for you on rides? What sleeve is that on it? Powered or just rely on battery?

garmin 66st.   loads of memory, and decent screen quality, small.   I have it powered on a switch panel I made.  I need the brightness at 100% to read it, and with a battery it will only last 4-5 hours.

it tracks you day by day, nice to have.

Love the set up. I might do something similar. What frame protection is that? I want to do something stick on to keep dirt out from between the guard and frame. Might just make a template and use a door kick plate protection vinyl I’ve used in the past. Thick black textured vinyl. Easy to use and super durable.

Has anyone used the traction control feature on their Vortex? I thought it was pretty neat...came in handy in the technical sections. Stock tires are no bueno

Haha yup. Salt water is the devils saliva. My stock chain is only still alive thanks to gasoline and quick actions lol. 

I sprayed some PB blaster, scrubbed, then a ton of WD40. Then water flush and Motul Wax lube. Came out great. Super clean. Looks, sounds, and feels great.

Push the start button while the engine is running in neutral...when the engine light on the dash blinks on and off every second it's ready to use.

Why what don't you like about it?

I liked it in the tech stuff but in regular riding where I needed wheel spin I didn't like it and turned it off.

I'm Old School and dont like TC on the 450 cc dirt bike, I use wheel spin to put the ass end where I want it to be.

On my 650 cc and 1200 cc , TC  is ok.

Trust me coming from a 2 stroke I know that style of riding, in fact I'm still getting used to riding a 4 stroke.:ride:

I still think it's a cool little feature on the Vortex.

And then how does one turn it off? Must you cycle the motor off in order to get out of the traction control mode? Pushing the start button with the engine running doesn't hurt the starter?

Sounds like a fun way to kill your starter no?
