Re: February 21, 2015 Club Ride

This is a test to see if I can post here and give some info also. Mike & I plan to put on a 30 to 40 mile ride but details have not been worked out yet. We plan to be back at the parking lot around 4PM. Stay tuned and look forward to the ride.

Re: February 21, 2015 Club Ride

rode about 60 miles Saturday to check out possible trail selections. First of all my machine cooling fan did not work for the 3rd time. Fan works fine when connected to 12 volts & changed fan relay. It has me puzzled. After riding many trails Saturday I was surprised how this winter with all the wet weather has taken a toll. Many of the trails have DEEP ruts from erosion and use. I have decided to call this ride the Overlook Trail Ride. It will be easy to moderate. It will include gravel roads & trails but the mileage will be higher. If weather is good we could cover 50 to 60 miles. Lets hope I figure out my fan problem or I might have to bum a ride. lol.

Re: February 21, 2015 Club Ride

If the weather is good it will go from the south side to the north side or vise versa. Hope to check out trails tomorrow and get some mileage info. Found my fan problem so I am up and running. If anyone is interested in coming along I will be there between 9 & 10. I know Bama girl will be here also. Don't forget it is a work day for the obstacle course too. They are meeting at the old event area by the camp ground. I am getting excited about all the up coming rides & it looks like we have a busy spring ahead.

Re: February 21, 2015 Club Ride

I will be working tomorrow with the club other wise I would join u. We are looking forward to next weekends ride also. I had a question about your fan. Are 800 s just up and quit the other day so we replaced the relay and still didn't work but the sending unit is good and the fan runs when wired straight. We think it may be a pinched or cut wire from the sending unit to relay. Do u have any suggestions on this dilemma. Thank you.

Re: February 21, 2015 Club Ride

My fan problem was a circuit breaker under the drivers seat by the battery. It was rusted and the terminal had come apart and I found the main power connection to the starter relayed was bad also. While I was fixing the breaker this connection actually broke. I looked at a 800 Saturday and it has the same set up. All these connections are in the water & mud all the time. I replaced the breaker for $3.75 at auto zone and the wiring connection I had. I moved this breaker to the fire wall behind the drivers seat too. The breaker is a 20 amp. Hope this info was useful. The starter selinoid nuts were bad also.

Re: February 21, 2015 Club Ride

Re: February 21, 2015 Club Ride

Yes it is. That route is if the weather is good. Right now they are saying rain and low 40 temps. As I said before the route will be weather sensitive. I would really like to ride in the snow. I use to ride in NJ & up state NY in the snow. They have winter carnival on Lake George NY every weekend in February and ride on the frozen lake. They had drag racing, ice racing with dirt bikes, a moon light ride and poker runs. I am keeping an eye on the weather.

Re: CANCELED -February 21, 2015 Club Ride

After talking to Ron and Bob, we have decided to CANCEL the February Ride Club due to road conditions. Windrock Road is extremely slick and with the forecast temperatures we do not see any improvements before Saturday morning. The Member's safety on the road is the biggest concern. It would probably be a good day to ride if you could get there but I would hate to see someone to have an accident, trying to make it to the Club ride. We have been lucky with the weather in the past and maybe we will have more luck in the future. Hope to see everyone at the next meeting, Tuesday, February 24th at 7:00 pm, at the Comfort Inn. Hope to have a good turnout for the March 21st ride at Royal Blue...
