    Nah, you're just doing it smarter. I was talking about those tightening wash and canyon trials that slow ya down and make ya use all your gas up: my 350 just doesn't seem to care.

    I left something out... On riders where we gas up at 60 miles, I've always got a gallon or more left. This is with the Acerbis 4 gal KTM/Husky tank; and, on rides where we're riding in challenging terrain. About FI bikes: keep an eye on fuel-pumps and price/availability. This is one of the parts on modern scoots that can be a hassle to change between tanks when you're doing it often. So, when you find a good deal on a pump, get it. I switch between the 4 gal (Baja) and the stock tank (trail rides/Sierras-Cleveland) and I figured this pump thing out after dealing with this change out too many times.

    Nice! That shop is run by some good people. too! I did the math: 4.094667 gallons. When I look at what must have gone into that design and the molds...etc. & it looks like they're imported from Oz... I understand how and why it can cost that much. Funny, I hadn't looked at JGT/The Enduro Shop. Thanks!

    From the onset, My point was that we don't know WHO did WHAT or WHY... And as others have said, due to the time-line stated "as of" when the e-mail was quoted, people were even confusing events... And the anti-Cameron language was right there, too. Then Larry chimes in with everything from "You work for Cameron" and finishes it off with his Trump innuendo. The thinly veiled angst towards Cam and the DA is old. I guess that, ultimately, is what's just..."Old". No worries. Ultimately, it's been said by a few of you: You seem to have one helluva problem with others and there's an underlying tone about people that have money. Heck, I'm -OVER- the TT's and the way they dig up the course; but, it is what it is. I'm not gonna start having a Social Economic argument about this stuff. And, I'm not one to stand by when someone openly attacks a friend (no matter how thinly veiled) with-out some rebuttal and QUESTIONING. So, y'all have a great time in The Baja and be safe. See you on the trail.

    See? You are DIGGING a hole for yourself. Another IGNORANT Reply like the one where ya told me I "work" for Cameron. Trump? Me? Uh, no. He's just like you: Statements of fact from hearsay and ambiguous bs. You 2 should have a great time building your wall to keep the rest of us out. Yes, I can tell by your messed up attitude that you're one of those guys...the rest of us are the problem & you're the ONLY one doing it right. Yup. It's plain as day: You are one of "those guys". But, just know that it won't work. Get it straight: I've listed the crap you've said THAT IS FALSE. You obviously are clueless to the things you say and type. Let's jus' roll with "Clueless". Since you're so good at throwing this crap around, I'll throw it back at you, Gringo: You are a LIAR. There it is. Manny

    Wow, dude, you need to go back and see WHY I told you to ask somebody about who I am or what I do; 'cause, you'd just got done telling me: 1. I work for Cameron. 2. I'm full of BS Hence, I suggested you consult someone you know and trust to get your info straight on me. 3. You'd also shown your ability to take sides on this and not -FOR ONE SECOND- consider the source or the situation... Did the Heli POSSIBLY try to keep a vehicle FROM HAVING A HEAD ON!? Is there a possibility that this is bad info in that e-mail? Are YOU SURE there wasn't any other groups or events up there? Can you slow down for a second and read what I'm telling you...AGAIN...? And, about you wanting Cameron to come in here...after the crap you've said? You guys and your piss-poor attitudes and your obvious dislike for Cameron and the DA is HOW YOU Chased Cam and others off. Guys like YOU are why HE ain't bothering to come in here. And I'll throw this down, too: He's not alone. I can get riders, industry folk and others to do Q & A's at Vital other & moto/off-road forums ALL DAYl; but, they won't come near here. Go look at your comments about Baja-Nomad and others & YOU will see why. So, again, I suggest you KNOW what really happened before you post the stuff you do AND before you stir up crap the way you did in here. There it is. Explained to you, AGAIN, after further lack of comprehension on your part and plenty of patience on my part. Also, clarify between the Beach Bash and The Trail of Missions; because, I see some confusion on the part of some of those responding in here. Allowing the rants & the accusations of the Butt-Hurt in here is OVER. See you on the trail. Manny "Hence, I suggested you consult someone you know and trust to get your info straight on me." I think I see a future sig-line!

    I've ALWAYS got gas left...like a gallon+. I'm seeing 15-12 mpg (est,) on mixed difficulty stuff and I know I've gotten 25 just putting around Cleveland National Forest. It's a 6 speed FE-S, btw. It'll do 90 when pushed.

    I've been riding some of the '16-'17YZ-Fs and I'm getting a '17 WR-F (I'm thinking it can be BOTH an Off-Roader & a Vet MXer) There's just one problem for me with making it a Baja scooter: the only tank I'm finding is a 3 Gallon IMS: STOKED that IMS is making a tank...But, I'm not looking forward to going back to Bleach Bottles for my longer rides! Anyone found a larger tank? I've gotten ABSOLUTELY SPOILED by my Husky FE350S. With a 4 gallon tank it's invincible! Also, after a simple re-valve...it's a rock-crawling trials wannabe that can still handle the good stuff like the Sta Rita Whoops! (Stock springs: I'm 185 pound wannabe MX-type).

    Wow. Where do you get that I 'work' for Cameron? Seriously, that's just funny. I -work- for a company that's very involved in this sport we all love..."Moto". All aspects of it form RR to Dakar. Maybe Tim can set you straight on this. Or ask Johnny, Scotty Breauxman or someone-else that actually knows me & what I do. FYI, this latest post of yours was brought to my attention by some folks that literally LOL'd as they read it to me... I ride with Cameron. And, yes, I'm a friend of Cameron's. That's why I find your accusations and "Facts" so entertaining. As for your info: Is it from the Rancho that you KNOW they passed thru or a nearby Rancho or "group"? Do you have the GPS "tracking" from the trucks on Cam's run...? You got some pics of these travesties you speak of? (Actually as they HAPPENED...or not) That's the thing: I can't go for this "Kim and Kanye" social-gossip that I'm seeing in here. We all know that there are plenty of people that get butt-hurt over these activities and that we need to be extremely careful NOT to play into it. Another-thing, when someone has any kind of organized ride "In the Baja"...what are his obligations, including -legal-, to the states (Baja and Sur) and are all of you fulfilling those obligations? How involved are all the various gov't entities to make sure that the communities and the ranchers know "what's up"? This is where I'm still laughing at your statement about my "BS"; because, I've BEEN THERE for some of these meetings to plan the route & get the "OK" from officials and land-owners. Classic. Ever notice that some of these officials are actually on camera...or the scenes where we're handing permits to the men in uniform..."as seen on TV"...? That's the thing, these events are on film and that, in it's-self, mandates that you have everything in-order to a level that virtually NO-ONE in this thread can really comprehend. Yet, as I said, we get this "Kim and Kanye" crap that we have here. That's jus' sad. The underlying problem for me, as I said: You're talking crap on A GROUP of people; yet, you single Cameron out. Then ya reach waaaaaay out there and make statements like, "Manny you work for Cameron good for you...Too bad half your words are B.S. you cant fool people that live here." Dude, where you live and what you think you know have no standing with soooooo many of us; but, how you speak of and to others does. That's the point. Manny

    Bruce get's it. Thanks for making a reasonable observation. As for some of the others in here, I think some of you are realllly placing ALL of this on the wrong guy...aka, BLAME, as in Blaming the wrong guy/group. Hell, after doing some homework: I -KNOW- you are. Cam's events get pre-cleared with the Ranch's and he EVEN GETS PERMITS! Then there's this, I can't tell you how many Ranchers I've talked to, gates I've opened and closed, cross-roads/trail-crossings I've marked and how many radio relays I've had to endure to MAKE SURE a Gate Get's CLOSED and all the riders are thru. And, yes, on a rare occasion I've dealt with the "Toll Takers"...classic (Usually up around the start/finish of the 500/1000 during pre-running). Tim knows this is true. Tim runs the same kind of show: Safe, Keep Track of -EVERYBODY-...and STAY OUT OF PLACES THAT WE DON'T NEED TO MESS WITH. Btw, Tim LOVES LOTS of Radio chat. Lots! Also, I've BEEN THERE during the discussions with Ranchers and Land Owners...and representatives from the Governor's Office. What's most Hilarious, is that some of you will "allude" or talk a bit of smack without acknowledging that you're talking crap about Johnny, too. Then there's the Big-Crazy Marine, Jimmy Sones...he does NOT like to Piss Off ANYONE on our rides. Both of whom are just a sampling of all the people involved in Cameron's rides. You're talking shit about ALL of us. Thanks. About the case being discussed, here: I did some fact-checking: The Trail of Missions DID open that gate...and they closed it. And they had permission. Nothing CUT, nothing Torn Down. While we're here: Can we all take just a little bit of care in "going off" on someone based on typical internet chat & gossip? Can we put the obvious angst we have for someone aside? Angst for someone that puts on epic rides and events. Someone that cares about this place more than some of you seem to bother acknowledging. And, you wonder why he doesn't post here? So, you don't like Cam or his rides or the way he does things? I do. Some other folks do things differently, and ya know what? Some of those other folks are posting in this thread...and talking crap. I've NEVER HEARD CAM TALK POORLY ABOUT THEM! E V E R. So, I am bummed about this current access issue. And, I'm bummed about how some of you neglect to see the obvious... We are ONE community. Manny
