@Steve-Lynch I can indeed confirm the accessibility features are ignored. During early testing of Mobile we discovered a lot of issues when allowing this so we now simply ignore it. By default the Mobile app uses a bigger font as that suits the app usage (slightly longer distance from your eyes as it’s mounted on a bike / car). If the accessibility feature would increase the font size even more, the screen became horrific.
When using the forum through the Mobile app, it uses the default web size font which might be a bit small.
The only point I was making is that the Pop Up that states "Note: The system now places waypoints on the route line." is simply not correct.
I just created another Scenic Route and maybe 45% of the Route Points are not on the Route Line in the OSM Map.
Some are not even on the road itself.
I am aware that I have to possibly amend every Route Point and I have no issue with that.
The Scenic A to B routes do create some fantastic routes.
I am doing that route on the 6th or 7th August.
Unfortunately the info from the link indicates that it has been closed from April and opens up in September.
I have amended the route to take the closure into account.
I will keep checking the route just in case it opens up earlier.
Yes I agree that the TT’s are far simpler but the XT is just so beautiful. 🙄
Despite a bit of a learning curve getting to know the XT I now have a way of working that suits me fine using the XT Trip Planner exclusively.
Purchased the Honda CRF 250 Rally new in January 2020.
Then lock down ARGHHHH!!!!
First Mods Barkbusters, Michelin Anarchy Wilds and a Rear Rack.
The IRC Stock Rubber was not too bad on the road but they were useless in the mud.
I’ve never actually dropped the 250 Rally Off Road to date, but that does not mean I’m an off road hero it just means I very rarely get above second gear. 😳
I’ve been meaning to get some Off Road Training since the lockdown, that’s definitely happening in 2122.
The 250 Rally has about 24 bhp, it will comfortably sit at 60mph on the motorway with some limited scope for overtakes up to about 75mph at most.
You have to ring it’s neck on the twisty country roads to get the most out of it but the 10.1 litre tank can often induce fuel anxiety, as the gauge stays full for a long time then seems to drop rapidly.
I doubt that I will do any more mods to this bike as I doubt I will ever be doing any seriously knarley off road riding.
The ABS on the rear can be turned off but not the front.
The rear shock has a huge amount of sag when you sit on it, even with my skinny frame on it. As a 6 footer I can flat foot it but I often have to swing an arse cheek on any sort of camber.
On the road at over about 35mph you can hear the Anarchy Wilds give a little whine, you can also imagine the impact of travelling on motorway to the Yorkshire Moors and back.
The rear in particular was shot to bits but generally the Anarchy Wilds are pretty good on the road if its dry, front and back, but the rear can get a bit out of shape if the roads are wet.
In the dry on the roads you can really throw the bike around once you get used to riding a 21” front tyre.
Whilst the 250 Rally is not particularly light in terms Off Road bikes it carries its weight very well which is probably due to the small 10.1 Litre tank.
Overall the bike is great fun to ride on the road and Off Road and always puts a smile on my face, apparently this little thumper is bullet proof so hopefully it will still be running when by latest ride is a Zimmer frame.
As the main focus of the route is a motorcycle route I doubt that many of the end users will have a device that can track off road walking paths.
This is just a short 10 to 15 minute walk so I am going to provide it as an image on YouTube.
I used OSM to plot the route in Offroad mode using footpaths and used the Google overlay.
@Jack-van-Tilburg It's nice, but.........
In Basecamp/Google Earhe you could pause the animation.
Also it is possible to go back and go faster or slower. That I miss in Animation.
Hope these possibilities comiing soon
Yeah, it kind of ricocheted off of my helmet, so it was not frontal, lucky me. The group I lead later said that they saw me make a strange sideways move, but they never noticed the pigeon. So they did not really believe me. But at the time I was kind of shaky, but not not stirred 😀
