I'll be on my 1090. I'm still getting used to the bike and breaking it in so I'll be taking it easy. Wish my 250X was street legal and had more range.

Looking forward to the ride and meeting this group.

Should be a fun ride!

Grim I'm using K60 scouts on my 07 1200 and really like them. They are good on the highway but do pretty well off road also. What year is your GS?

Bike came with a spare rear wheel with almost new tkc80, now have spare front, won't have to use them on all-pavement trips, should help with wear.

I did a little recon on the way home from Church. The Medina river crossing is dry, so no green slime drama like KoryJ captured last year on his great video.

Re: 3 Medina County 250 Adventure Motorcycle Ride - Saturday, 1/20/18-Castroville, Te

Sander...i have downloaded the .kml file you have supplied , and I can view it in my google maps app on my phone (thanks).. my question is, will this run as a real time navigation track, or is it only intended to be viewed as a map only.

I have a Garmin but it's an old cheapie and I can't upload .gpx files to it. (On the purchase list)

Thanks Brian

Sander, I'll see you Saturday. Got a RV spot in Hondo, no places open there in Castroville.
My wife and I are going take a 3-day weekend there.

Brian,

Hopefully someone with more knowledge that I can help. I went to google maps and uploaded the GPX to get the map. I don't know about functionality after that other interactivity on the computer screen.

I just use the GPX for my old Garmin 76CSx. I don't have any experience with KMLs, someone asked for it one time so I include the availability each time.

T.y. this is why I need to get a new Garmin so I can load up the gpx's. Need to slow down the spending. CC. has been quite impressive the last couple of months

Some Sidewinders will be there again. We have made both previous ones and finished both. Nice job Sander on the route and thanks for setting things up.

Re: 3 Medina County 250 Adventure Motorcycle Ride - Saturday, 1/20/18-Castroville, Te

The weather looks promising and my steed is up and running finely so I plan to be there Saturday. Hope I can find someone that has the route and that I can follow at a reasonable rate. Too much speed on rough roads seems to shake things apart. Looking forward to a great day. - Bill

Looks like I'm in on this. 20 min from the house I can't pass this up.

I would recommend getting a cheap gps app for your phone that will allow you to import .gpx files. That way you'll have offline nav capabilities, in case you lose your cell signal.

I recommend Pocket Earth. It is a free app to use, I have payed for the offline Topo maps. But for this ride shouldnít be needed unless you want it. I have used this app extensively including the NMBDR and highly recommend it. It has tracking along with following a track. If you decide to use it and have any questions about it private message me and I can help you out. You can search online and convert the google map to a gpx file. Or I can email you one if you need.
