5 Reasons Why Dual Sport Motorcycles are the Best #everide

This video is from the YouTube channel everide. I learned about his channel when looking for mods to perform on my klr650. His channel is great. I hope to bring mine to at least half of his.

Got hit in the head by a bat…

I was riding home today from a motorcycle meetup. We hit some dirt roads. I’m watching out for deer when !bang! A massive flying thing hits me in the face. My brother was riding behind me. He said, “bro you dropped something” or something near that. I told him, “I think it’s the bird or something I hit”. We went back and it was a dead bat. Of course I didn’t have my camera on to record the event.

Sorry for crapp photo. It was dark and I was really tired and wanted to go home and had bat guts on me.

Sena 10c firmware update corrupted.

Not sure if it is just me, but I could not find anything on google. I was having issues with installing Firmware updates on my Sena 10c. I was moving from v1.0.4 to v2.0. The error I kept getting was “Failed to update firmware. Firmware corrupted. Try again [2][2]”. I will attached a screenshot.  I even attempted to use other languages and still failed. I also tried other SD cards. Alway stuck at like 12%. I eventually tried installing the update on my macbook and it work… Solution: Different computer.

Some goodies on this update though!!

Sena Technologies, Inc. released the firmware version v2.0 for the 10C which mainly includes:

Group Intercom™

HD Intercom

Dual A2DP

Universal Intercom pairing moved into the configuration menu

Loop recording mode

Loop recording interval setting

Video tagging interval setting

Microphone gain setting during video recording

Changed FM radio band in Japan to 76 ~95 MHz

Improved compatibility with Triumph Bluetooth onboard audio systems

Minor bug fixes in the operation through the Smartphone App for Android
Not quite sure how to use the settings. But the video tagging intervals will be nice. The. The group intercom will make it better compatible with the sena 20s

Weekend in the forest

Road out to Manistee National Forest with 3 other klr650 riders; my dad, brother and buddy. My buddy Lūkas had been in the forest before and gave us a tour. I haven’t been on that side of the state often so it was mostly new for me. Good ride. I had terrible tires for all the sand. Some kenda 80/20 I picked up in Québec for the rear and a shinko 705 for the front. Just ordered some k60 scouts. I hope they will do better next weekend. As for this past weekend we did about 600 miles total and it was my brothers first mototrip he did well.  

Here is some of the forest we hit on day two.

This is Lūcas’s setup. Very minimal and light weight.

.

This is my setup pretty much had everything still packed from my 30 days in Canada. I had a tent but I wanted to try out the hammock life.  I’ll be keeping my tent. 

This is my dad’s setup.  He’s got the coolest tent. 

My brothers setup. He has my old tent. 

This is a close up on my brothers klr650 with “gear”. 

I’m home. 

Yeah. It seems that keeping up with this while traveling is not the easiest.  I’m working on a video or videos series from the footage and photos I took while on the trip. Might do something in a similar style to c90adventures. Not sure yet. Have to see what all I have. 

Here is a video to hold you over until I find time to learn how to video edit. 

(This video is something my Google photos app automatically made as a suggestion based off its stalking me.) 
Here is the actual route we ended up taking.

Second day on Newfoundland 

We woke up to cold and rain. But we got to see iceburgs! Rode up to a town called St. Anthony’s for breakfast. Then down to check out Gros Morne. Rain and fog.  We did not get to see much. Check the weather it was suppose to be pretty crappy on this side of the island so we got beer camped and planed to head east in the morning.

This is some trail in some park in rocky harbor.

Some rock at some park near rocky harbor.

We were gunna have chicken wraps from cans of chicken. Well they only had flakes of chicken and not chucks.. guess that means cat food… we had boil bag instead. Lol
