Just a little test run at the desert
« on: February 28, 2016, 09:46:32 PM »
Took a quick run to our west mesa to give a few thing a little test run. The verdict was:
1. Love the doors! Even in the dust they kept the cab much cleaner and the extra room is very welcome.
2. I also like the 1.5" wheel spacers. Noticeable stability improvement
3. I give up on the tablet for a GPS. The app works great and if I could see it most of the time, I would call it a success but even with the shroud its near impossible to see most of the time. So..scrap that idea! It may be of up the woods with shade but not on the open desert.

Made a quick video. Nothing earth-shaking..

Looks like a great place to ride I can see why more horses would be good there; nothing that open here..

Backcountry Navigator. You can find it on the google app store. There is a free trial version but the real one is 11 bucks. But you have tons of free map resources you can download for when you are away from any internet service. 

Now on the GPS tracks above I just imported the track from Backcounrty into google earth and did a screen vid capture while running the timeline.
