No, I don't have any Android devices. Other than the APRS I sometimes run it's just paper maps, pencil and a compass for us. No interest in using GPS mapping, tablet or computer.

If you're saying the Garmin can only do real NMEA 0183, which is...

Never said it wasn't fun to ride in snow. Just that the number of places that a fat bike actual excels is small. I can fall in the snow like Wade Simmons on most any bike and until the snow got...

There are versions of both, but more I suspect are the W56C/D versions like Travis has since those were made longer.

I couldn't tell you what you have to do to convert from one to the other but I...

A first gen with 106K and what looks like a solid cab and frame. Truthfully the bed isn't that rusty for a first gen, either. So I'd probably put that in the fairly decent condition if the engine...

I think the concern would be limited to tire size. If you're going wider than stock then you may rub. There's also the chance that taller tires will rub on the fender or skid plate. I think using...
