  1. Past hour
  2. Just joined up to gleam information over the winter. I have a couple Triumph triples (Sprint 1050 and Tiger 1050) that are going on the block to help facilitate a Tracer GT or FJ purchase. Instead of growing the herd, I’m going to thin it to one. I just haven’t had the time to ride line I want so I (begrudgingly) told the wife I was going to go down to one bike for a few years. She was happy until I told her I was selling both to buy a different one! if anyone finds themselves in metro Atlanta and has a breakdown or needs a quick fix, I have a trailer, tools, and a cool garage to work in. I’ll toss in a picture of the Sprint for the hell of it.

    Hi From Indiana

    Welcome. Im over in Lafayette. Got a '16.
  6. Welcome @Novtec1 to the premium member program!
  7. Outstanding @wordsmith! Happy to hear you’re rejoining the riding community. The red ones are best... don’t tell the others, however, or they'll just be jealous.
  8. I actually ended up pulling the trigger on a leftover 2017 KTM Super Adventure T. I couldn't say no when I walked out the door 4k under MSRP with tags included for the first year.
  9. How to post pics and do stuff on the forum.  


  10. Ok, so we made the big change to the new forum. And now there is so much new stuff. 1. Login. If you were a member before the change, you have to click on 'Forgot Password" when logging in. The system will then send you an email (check junk folder) and you must click the link in the email and change your password. Then, login as normal! 2. Set up your Profile page. Click on your username at the top right of the forum. Now, click on "Profile". From here, you can upload your little "Profile pic" and this is the little pic that goes up nxt to all of your posts. Now, upload your Profile's "Cover Photo". Like Facebook this is the big cover pic that goes at the top of your profile. Not done yet! Now, click on "Edit Profile" and turn on "Status Updates". then scroll down and click "Save". 3. What the heck are "Status Updates"? Its the social media portion of our website. You can post status updates from your profile page and logged in members will see what you posted, displayed on the main forum page. Place an @ before someone's username and your post will appear on their status update. You can share pics, you can share posts from the forum, you can share stuff from outside of this website, too. 4. How to post pics. From a new post or Status update, you can upload pics from your device to this website and they will display where you post them. In a Post or Status Update, go to the bottom left and click on "Choose Files" . If your image is already hosted on a website somewhere, just copy the "Share link" and come back here to your new post or status update, and click on "insert other media" and follow the directions to paste in the URL. This is also where you load Gif's. More tips coming soon, check back for more!

    Hi From Indiana

    I live in the Fort Wayne area......been lurking around for a couple months but recently pulled the trigger... Just picked up a new 2015 FJ-09 from a dealer up the road. Moving from a 2012 Honda NC700X. Looking forward to the new adventure on what appears to be a fantastic ride!

      The expanded view in All Activity shows only two lines of a post rather than the full post. Is there a way to show more of the post without clicking on the thread topic?

    3. Cruizin


      @estell You will have to click on the post and open it to see the rest of the post.

      @BBB   Just like in Status updates, we can either upload pics from our devices right into a post or status update, or into an album in Gallery. 

      To upload pics from your device, click "choose files" in the bottom left of a post or status update. This stores the pics on our server.

      You can also do this by dragging and dropping your pic into your post/status update. 

      You can also share pics that are already hosted somewhere else by clicking on "insert other media"  on bottom right of your post/status update. 


      You can see who was last to post in a topic in "all activity".   It shows who posted last. 

      If you are looking at the static "recent posts" box on the main forum page, no, that will not show who posted last, it only shows who created the thread.  If I switched it to who posted last, then someone would ask me if I could switch it back.  

  13. I also have a KTM 1290 Super Duke R. There are so many great bikes in the market now!
  14. Looking for "recent threads"? Click "ALL ACTIVITY". It's better.

    Tyre Pressure poll

    36f/42r on nearly all my street bikes for many years now. Have run those same pressures riding quite a bit in the UK. Ambient temps, big range as I like to go places, high 20s - 115F. Oh, and usually mixed, sport touring rear with a sport front. A few psi cold doesn't impact most street tires to the extent some here suggest with regard to heating, wear, and contact patch. Tires are not balloons. If it's street rubber it's got constraints across all mfg with regard to heating time and designing to the lowest common denominator for the market it targets (rider skill level, road conditions, weather conditions, etc). If one really wants to find the "best" or "correct" pressure for a given tire and conditions it's about finding the optimal operating temp. Monitor your pressure change between hot/cold, learn to read hot and cold tear indications on the tire, etc. With regard to track opinions above please seek out the opinion of tire techs at the venue. Many novices (we have all been there) are surprised to find that a street front sport tire often needs more pressure than suggested on the internet because at high temps the sidewalls may become quite soft and need additional pressure to maintain shape.
  18. This is the bike that really gives me the itch to switch. Price is a little steep, but damn that big KTM makes me want to do something stupid.
  19. Have not been able to locate profile setting for status updates....

    1. Cruizin

  26. Well, the dealership in Mt Isa - Far North-west Queensland - has accepted my offer and things are proceeding! The bike should probably be here by Christmas, but if not there's no great loss as riding in the heat and humidity of a Queensland summer, just begun, is not much fun! A bit like Florida's 90/90 I imagine. I'm pretty sure that this will be the last of the Mohicans as far as brand-new Tracers are concerned here in Oz, so it will be a bit special - Lava Red too! Let the (mental) farkling begin, but having been there, done that before I know where to start. First, tweak the suspension: luckily I have kept a note of my original settings, which while not perfect by any means did give a satisfactory, if not brilliant ride. Then my usual first-off add-ons: Grip Puppies (the real ones from the UK): then a Stebel Magnum horn - not super-loud but twin-tone and more attention-grabbing than the OE squeaky toy: a home-made extension to the side-stand lowering leg, for easier location when on the bike, in the absence of a universally-jointed ankle: then a pair of front conspicuity LEDS: then my home-made SKENE lookalike red flashing/ pulsing rear brake-light LEDs. Later, probably, a Bagster seat as before, sourced from Italy at a much better price than locally. I'll probably paint the pannier lids too, as I have done before, achieving an excellent result using ordinary household paint rattle-cans (assuming I can get a very good match). Then - after summer's heat and humidity and tropical rain - hit the road in earnest! Happy days!
