Yeah, I had a shop rag under the hub. Worked well!I'm glad to see that someone took my advise to use their riding jacket to keep the wheel bearings out of the dirt.
Tom Schmitz made a few 'Trail-Side Work Mats' (4x4 ft, heavy Cordura) to eliminate grease on our riding jackets. (hopefully you had a grease rag under your hub?)
I even suggested that he approach 'Happy-Trails' with his design. Sorry that it is still Not in their available accessorizes.
I haven't ridden more than 25 miles from home without my 'TS Trail-Side Work Mat' since I've received it! I used it for the first time, 25 miles from Any civilalation just last Autumn. Thank you Tom!
Watched last night. Was curious is there were other opinions on it like what time of year is best.Supposedly the IDBDR is the easiest of the routes. You can check outa video of it on YouTube. They’ve put all the movies there for free.
I have ParaMoto’s pulled up but didn’t have time to watch at work today. I’ll look for that one too.I watched a YouTube video done by Grizzlee when he rode the IDBDR. Was rather informative and I believe he went right after Labor Day. He mentioned it was warm a couple of days and the area wasn’t too overrun since kids were back in school, etc. I would think the other consideration would be fires.
This is on my list to do but just picking up the new bike this weekend there are numerous farkles to be purchased and I need to get used probably won’t have a chance to go before next year.
If you go please do a report of it.
