    My TDM build

    Since these motorcycle pages don't seem to be getting much traffic lately, I figured I would post my modifications to my 1993 Yamaha TDM 850. Although there are several people over on ADVRider that have taken their TDMs to some pretty crazy places, mine was destined for street duty as my sport...

    Locked 1995 Toyota Landcruiser, 181K miles, Wash DC area

    SOLD! It's time for me to move on to something a bit "softer" for my growing family and aging body. Don't worry, it will most likely be a 100 series, but might be a GX470 or even something less manly. It is in very good condition, but certainly not perfect. I will try to be as honest as I...

    Can someone explain to me the hoopla over disc brakes on low end bikes??

    My mtn bike is over 10 years old, but was pretty high end at the time (XTR drive train, hardtail with Manitou shock). It still serves my 40+ year old, slightly pudgy, *** fine. Probably the last thing I would change about it are the brakes. With a finger or two, I can modulate the V-brakes...

    Polar Bear soft sided coolers

    I searched, but saw very few postings about these coolers (http://polarbearcoolers.com/) here on Expo. Several people had mentioned them over on ADVRider, so I bought one, and then another (a 24 and 12 pack size). The short of it is, for a soft sided cooler, they claim they'll keep ice for 24...

    Camping Fridges - Pros and Cons

    I've had my camping fridge a little less than a year now. I'm still happy with the purchase, but I have learned some things through owning one that I didn't anticipate. I figured this might be a good thread for fridge owners to bring up things a prospective owner may want to consider. I'm not...

    Internal Auxiliary Battery

    Just looking for a little re-assurance here . . . What I'm planning is really just an extra battery, not really an auxiliary battery that is part of the vehicle charging system. I have an Edgestar fridge that I run off its own battery (when not using the car's 12V while moving). As much as...

    D*** you West Coast people!!

    I just got back from a week out west (Bay Area and Tahoe). I grew up in the Bay Area and still miss the wide open spaces and great weather. Living out East, I also long for rust-free cars (I saw countless Mustangs, Beetles, and other 40+ year old cars). But I also realized there's yet another...

    My Cargo solution

    I posted more details in the Storage Solutions thread: http://www.expeditionportal.com/forum/showpost.php?p=827301&postcount=356 It was really more of a "Lessons Learned" posting that may be of assistance to others planning a cargo platform since there are probably several things I would have...

    Expedition?

    Maybe not . . . Didn't lock the Center differential. Didn't lock the front and rear. Didn't even put it into 4 low. 30 minutes from Washington, D.C. Just one night less than an hour from home. But I know of several 5 year olds that had a great time. Slowing down and tapering back on the...

    Gore-tex Parka

    Looking for suggestions for a winter jacket. I already have a Summer shell I'm happy with. I'd like to stick with Gore Tex because I haven't had much luck with "proprietary" breathable, waterproof fabrics. (My Marmot Precip might be the exception). Anyway, I want something to use in the...
