Let me out in a good word for Jaxon (Tabasco) here.
Jaxon is the only mechanic I will use on my Tenere, since I got it years ago.
I had my 50k service done in March this year with Jaxon. I didnt check valves @ 25k, & I had 4 out of spec @ 50k. I’ve put about 12k miles on the bike since...
You can wait til spring if you wanna.
I rode AR last week for 4 days, & it was sublime.
I’m not waiting around on something that might protect me, if it’s ever made.
I’m not shaking hands & getting close to other dudes no matter what kinda scamdemic is going on.
Yes, I had forgotten about that 1. I was there a coupla years ago. Nice place, but pretty small. I think it’s a state park instead on national park. But, we should probably go there also. Thanks for the reminder.
FYI, there is a local Air BNB about 1/4 mile away that’s still available.
I don’t know what everyone’s riding plans are, but Friday, I’m riding a “Historiographical Tour” to visit 2 local Civil War sites. Going to Wilson’s Creek MO & Pea Ridge AR
That’s all fine & dandy. I like their new designs. I had a set of the older 25L saddle bags & the 40L bag & hated them. Glad to be free of them. But I do like the newest generation & I’m glad they are offering an offset set now also (again).
I just wish they were made in America...
I don’t believe it.
Just so happens they can make their stuff there at a much lower cost than making them in America.
I know several older gentlemen who spent some time in Vietnam & they didn’t think much of the place.
well that sucks, I had thought about buying their soft bags, but will hold off now. They are expensive for what they are, I just assumed they were all made.
I had a Altrider rear plate crack & break like a spider web recently. Starting to wonder if their stuff is all crap
