  1. Hey, new here! I just moved from SoCal to the El Paso area. Me and my buds are looking for some single track, or some decent trail riding in general. Were having trouble finding good trails to ride. Dont mind driving a couple hours to get to a location. Bonus points for Map routes, and areas that I can actually camp in. I did a lot of long distance enduro type stuff in cali and thats pretty much what Im looking for here. Thanks in advance!
  2. What are you using? What would you like to have? Are you using an app? Is what your using street/dirt compatible? Please share!
  3. I'm interested in getting into some rally type races just for the fun of it. I would like to practice navigating with the Roll Charts (or however you call it). Does anyone know a website that I can create my own for free? Thanks!
  4. Hello TT I am trying to solve the problem of logging lap times at the track when im by myself. I just wanted to know if anyone has any information about GPS watches for this purpose, specifically, the Garmin forerunner 235 which is fairly cheap near me at the moment. Is this watch going to be able to do what i want it to do? or is it a glorified heart rate monitor. The idea of logging heart rate data is some what useful to me but its primary use would be for logging lap times. Im not a fan of mounting my phone to my bike but if people have done this feel free to let me know your experience. any advice on this topic is appreciated Thanks
  5. need a new gps thats easy to use for dad who is 76 years old, he has the garmen cs60 and its not user friendly and pisses him off big time..
  6. I ride dual sport with an old magellen GPS on a RAM mount works great. Need to update this thing is 20 years old. Looking at Montana there are some really good sales coming up. I also use GPS for arrowhead hunting, deer hunting and just plain exploring. The onXmaps app looks really good as I am always avoiding areas because of private property. Does anyone here run Magellen Montana or Oregon? Anyone use onXmaps?
  7. Anyone happen to have any trail gps data for Campbells Creek area riding in West Virginia? Would be willing to donate a little if someone could produce me legit track files. Thanks.
  8. Hey, Just picked up a 2021 KTM 150 XC-W. Looking for suggestions/feedback on a GPS system for trail riding that has a feature to track my route as well. Thoughts?
  9. OLATHE, KS – April 11, 2018 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Garmin International, Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ: GRMN), today announced the rugged zūmo 396 LMT-S, a GPS designed specifically for motorcyclists that want to turn their routes into thrilling experiences. The rugged navigator offers a glove-friendly, 4.3-inch display in a new embodiment and packs a diverse feature-set ranging from clear, turn-by-turn directions, free real-time services1, built-in Wi-Fi®, preloaded TripAdvisor®points of interest, and for the thrill seekers – twisty adventurous routing options to enhance every ride. “Over the years, our customers have come to rely on the zūmo’s ability to provide easy motorcycle-dedicated navigation,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin vice president of global consumer sales. “Now, with the zūmo 396, riders can confidently venture out on the road, staying informed of the things that matter most, including updates for live traffic and weather conditions that could significantly impact their journey.” Staying connected is simple with the zūmo 396. Using the Garmin Smartphone link app, owners can wirelessly pair their Bluetooth®-enabled smartphones to the zūmo for access to a suite of free live services1, including traffic conditions and weather updates. Riders can safely store away their smartphones for convenient hands-free calling, in addition to receiving key Smartphone Link1features such as smart notifications, and LiveTrack – a feature that gives riders the option to share their locations with friends who want to track their adventures. Built-in Wi-Fi® allows riders to easily keep maps, software, and points of interest up-to-date on the navigator without the need for a computer. The zūmo 396 also simplifies the planning, sharing, and tracking of routes by making it easy for riders to swiftly export GPX files1 – files containing preferred routes – from their mobile devices to the zūmo for solo or group rides. The zūmo 396 enhances the adventure with convenient on-screen controls for music2 and media sourced from a rider’s Bluetooth-enabled phone or media player. To make the most of their adventures, riders can choose their route preferences using the Garmin Adventurous Routing™ settings to limit major highways and discover those hidden, winding, hilly roads. What’s more, the zūmo includes detailed maps of North America3, millions of Foursquare® POIs and new TripAdvisor® ratings for restaurants, hotels, and attractions along a route or near a destination. The zūmo 396 is equipped with new Automatic Incident Notifications1 — if an incident occurs, the zūmo can automatically send a text notification with GPS location information to a predetermined contact. The navigator also encourages rider awareness and safer driving by providing helpful rider alerts4 for upcoming sharp curves, railroad crossings, state helmet laws, red light/speed cameras, and more. Built to withstand the elements, the zūmo 396 is resistant to fuel vapors, UV rays and harsh weather.5 The zūmo 396 LMT-S has a suggested retail price of $399.99, and is expected to be available in April.

  10. The first year I owned my 250L, I gooned around in supermoto trim 100% of the time. If I wanted to ride off-road I would trailer my dirt bike since there are no extensive public trails within 1 hour of my home. 6 months ago I wore out my street supermoto tires again. Got busy, never ordered replacements so I swapped over to the stock wheels and tires. I started venturing further out to do more off-road. This eventually led to rim locks, better tires, skid plate, full RaceTech suspension and some supplemental luggage. The luggage I've been carrying is basic. Wolfman enduro tank bag, Wolfman fender bag, Wolfman bottle holder with 1L of extra fuel. I also ride with an off brand CamelBak. I carry basic tools, 1 spare tube and 2 spoons, phone, charger, air pressure guage, bike pump, zip ties, GoPro stuff. I'm getting bored of the local riding area and I want to start taking full day trips. I ride alone most of the time, I probably prefer it even. My questions: What is your must have gear for day trips that might also fit in my current bare bones luggage? I don't want more bags. I don't have rain gear except for my tank bag. I figure if it's calling for rain I'm not going and if it rains late in the day, I'm headed home. Bad idea? Do any of you trailer your bike to get closer to the action? Most of the riding I want to do is in the mountains of NC. I'm about 1.5-2 hours east of the roads I'm trying to get to. That's an extra 3+ hours of riding to get to the good spots and get home! What do you use for GPS? I use google maps on my phone typically. However I don't expect to have service in some locations. Does anyone use a device like the Garmin InReach? My wife would prefer I get one of those since I ride alone and will be on remote forest roads. Thanks for the advice.
  11. Hi guys, so I'm moving to a new neighborhood in the next couple months and bringing my 2 bikes with me. The house has a two car garage with 2 electric overhead doors. The area has had bike theft problems before and I wanna make sure I don't lose anything. Aside from locking doors, what do you guys reccomend? I've looked into "ridescorpio.com" for a gps tracking device to stick on the bike. A little expensive I think. Kinda wondering about the following 1. Bolting/locking bikes to floor (concrete slab in Garage) 2. Home security systems 3. Insurance with theft coverage? Does anyone have this? What's it cost $?? Any other ideas would be great. Thanks
  12. Over the past few years there have been many threads on GPS use scattered among existing forums, enough so I think there should be a GPS Forum. Since GPS is used by dirt bike and adventure bike riders it probably should be a General Forum. I would suggest moving existing GPS Threads to the new forum.
  13. I just got my new '17 501FE. I gave some first impressions in a different post so I will not repeat. Short story is I need a good soyrce of KEYED 12V for my GPS hookup (by keyed I mean it turns off when the key is in the off position). I need someone smarter that I to interpret that wiring diagram... I have the service manual and printed the schematic. I can't make much of it -- I am very good at wiring diagrams and have added keyed 12V to many other bikes but this one has me stumped. The ignition switch on and off positions don;t seem like they take 12V and connect to anything - I think I have heard elsewhere that the ignition switch can be entirely removed and two wires connected or one connected to ground to make it a "regular, non-keyed dirt bike (an explanation of that would be great). It seems like this bike lets the ECU control everything and that there is no easy 12V for accessories available, per-se (I hope I am wrong). As part of a desperate experiment (I was running out of time before riding), I took my VOM and probed the wiring harness behind the headlight looking for a hot wire when the bike was running. The strange thing is that many were hot but only periodically!! I would plug my GPS into them and it would power up but then every 10 seconds or so say power was lost only to have it return a few seconds later!! Sure enough, if I measured any of these potential wires with my VOM they would show 13 of so volts for a while and then drop to zero for anywhere from .3 to 1 second before returning back to 13v. Very strange behavior and they were all sort of doing this. I did not haul out the oscilloscope to see detailed behavior but I am willing to do that... I presumably was tapped into something in the ECU. Ok, so that was some bad science and I am willing to move from the errors of my ways with your help. If you can provide insight (along with location on the wiring diagram and wire color) of where I might find reliable 12V when the bike is running, I would be grateful. Please don't say "just hook it to the battery with a switch - that is not my style or the solution I am looking for). Presumably others have interest in getting keyed power for their goodies too. Thanks for your constructive responses.
  14. Im looking at getting a GPS tracker for my DRZ400E. Something like this (Gator GTRACK4G). Disclaimer: Im in Australia and the product I linked to is designed for the Aust marketplace but Im pretty certain ppl in the US and EU will have experience with similar GPS trackers. So the way this device works is as follows: The tracker needs a sim card. Apparently this one uses 2-4GB of data per month so you need a sim with enough data allowance to cover that. The device gets hardwired to the bikes electrical system and draws all its power from the bikes battery. You communicate with and configure the device by sending commands via SMS to the installed sim. One positive aspect of this particular device is there are no ongoing subscription fees. The only additional, on-going cost is purchasing data for the sim card as needed. The problem is, the tracker is ALWAYS ON. It doesnt have an on/off switch??!! Once installed its constantly sending the position of the bike to a server where the history of the bikes location gets stored. You can monitor it's position and see its history via an app or via a website. So it seems like this is a great device if the bike is stolen. You can immediately locate it. But the other side of the equation is: I dont want my location and the history of all my journeys to be uploaded to some server that I have no control over. Its a huge breach of privacy. I dont believe for a moment that 'X' private company can keep my data safe. And I dont want them to have that information about me anyway. I asked the tech support how I could turn it on / off, or disable it for periods of time and their response was "its not designed to be used like that. Its designed to be always on, always transmitting data." I hate this. I want the security afforded but I dont want to have my location tracked and recorded when Im riding. I want the ability to turn the tracker on when needed (ie when I leave it parked somewhere, or when its stored in the shed and Im away from my house etc). The only way I can see to do it at this point is to pull the sim card out when I want to disable it buts thats a pain. Disconnecting the power isnt a good solution either because the device has an internal battery thats good for 3 hours, so it will keep transmitting for that period. Has anyone found a way around this problem either with this specific device or a similar designed one? Aside from this single horrible design flaw it actually seems like a well-priced device that mostly does what I want it to do.
  15. I know there are a crap-ton of GPS options out there and a billion people have recorded their tracks, but I'm looking for a little more specific information. I'm planning a trip with my 15yo for his 2018 Spring Break/birthday. Neither of us have GPS and the units that I used 20yrs ago no longer exist. I'm looking into unit or android options, but also need to know which tracks are compatible. With so many options these days, I'm a little overwhelmed. Please advise.
  16. I was wondering if anyone knows if there are any accurate GPS maps available for OHM/OHV trails in MN? I have found these so far. http://www.miscjunk.org/mj/mp_mnohv.html - Really dated, but maybe they are still accurate?? I kept coming across references to this page: https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/ohv/gps.html, but it is no longer available. I emailed the webmaster, they replied and said they are no longer making those files available. Is anyone using a GPS when they trail ride in MN or do you just rely on paper maps or something different all together? Thanks
  17. By chance would anyone have any GPS coord files they wouldn't mind sharing of the Tomahawk in Wolverine MI? I tried looking online for a downloadable but came up short. Thanks
