. Anyway, I thought I’d throw in my 2 cents about personal contact info. I use Dynotags, I buy them on Amazon. They have QRcodes that when read take the viewer to a personal info page. If I remember correctly, you can have up to 5 pages of data. charm bracelet. View attachment 253747
Im about $15 to $ 25. One time cost, no monthly fees and no batteries. What I really like is that I can go on line to my page and edit my info as often as needed. New meds, change of meds, allergies, anything you want instantly available to responders in real time.
Ok I know, this is a dollar’s worth, lol.
It looks to be pretty self-explanatory. Now, if you're in the middle of nowhere, with no internet service it's not going to do you any good, but if you had nothing on your person about your history you'd be in the same position. But once they got you to a medical facility they are sure to have access at that point.
It's been awhile, but I think it still stands true. The first responder is concerned that you air way is open, your breathing, and you got a pulse. From there it's stop bleeding, imobilze, package, transport. More likely the hospital will be the one accessing this kind of data. Hopefully the first responder has done a proper head-to-toe, found the device, and reported it on arrival.
This phrase is the start and end of so many road stories.... lolAnd all because I "thought" I could make it.
Not being a dual-sporter I can't help you with this, but I think you've answered your own question.Seriously, this last year I spent more then 90% on the road. I've no reason to believe it will be any different this year. Good wet/dry tires road tires I think will be my best option.
Are you planning on to get on the road anytime soon again?600 mile days on Interstates is very doable. Including a quick meal stop that's only a 12 hour day.
Up at 6
Kickstands up at 7 (hydrate)
Light lunch at noon (hydrate)
Stop at 7 pm (hydrate)
Dinner (little to no alcohol as it will de-hydrate you)
In bed by 9
Good thing you got the breakdown conversation out of the way.
Memorial weekend. Unless I have no alternative (you may not) I never ride on national holidays. There are a huge number of drunks on the road every day of the year but that goes up exponentially on national holidays and even more so if it's a holiday weekend. But that aside, that's a good 600 mile test for yourself. The upside is the speed limits on the west side of Texas. The downside is that my Wing gets horrible fuel mileage above 80 mph and I have to stop more often. YMMV.
One tip on speeding. Don't. Go with the flow. If that's 4 over or 9 over or just the limit, stay with the pack. Don't be "in" the pack, but stay with them. The less time you spend looking for cops on the horizon or flashing lights in your mirrors, the more time you can spend watching the road and the vehicles around you and the less stressed you will be during the ride.
El Paso. The Border Patrol has their national museum in El Paso. Good little bit of history there. https://goo.gl/maps/jt95DgjPeMsG22Pi6
