Safety Is The First Rule When Riding ORV’s In Wyoming

from Off Road Recreational Vehicle’s are a great way to explore Wyoming, but being safe is something you need to take seriously. An ORV is described by as off-road motorcycles, ATVs and 4-wheel drive vehicles primarily used off-road. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (click here) started keeping track of the number of deaths involving ATV’s in 1982. A report was released a couple years ago that gave the total number of deaths in each state, Washington DC and Puerto Rico due to ATV’s with 3, 4 or more wheels. The report spanned from 1982 to 2017 and Wyoming came in near the bottom of the list at #47 with 71 lives were lost. Texas was at the top of the list with 831 lives lost. In Wyoming, thousands of ORV’s are purchased every year and on a daily basis you can see them on trailers, in trucks or riding around trails & roads. Safety measures are put in place to keep the deaths, injuries and accidents down. Wyo Parks has a great list of safety tips, available on their website (Click Here), that would be a great idea to become familiar with and teach your kids the proper ways of ORV riding. Wyoming has over 640 miles of trails available all over the state available for use by anyone. Of course you need to be familiar with the trail usage rules put in place to ensure safety for you and others using the trails. The Wyoming State ORV Program (Click Here) has worked along side other state and federal organizations to identify roads, trails and open areas that are suitable for riding your ORV. If you’re heading out on an ORV trip make sure you have a map, stay on the designated trails, be prepared […]

New BMW R 1250 RT Comes with Instrument Cluster Map Display

by Daniel Patrascu from Over the past few months BMW has been hard at work updating its motorcycle range. Last we heard from the Bavarians we were gifted with the new R 1250 GS family of two, but there’s another important two-wheeler boasting the same engine in need of a refresh: the R 1250 RT. The Touring bike was refreshed as well for the new model year, and the BMW announced this week the changes are meant to give it a new look, more standard equipment, and several technical upgrades. The most important part of the motorcycle, its engine, remains largely unchanged. We’re talking about a 1,254 cc 2-cylinder boxer that delivers 136 hp at 7,750 rpm and 143 Nm of torque at 6,250 rpm. Visually, the biggest change can be seen at the front, where we now get as standard a new full LED headlamp with optional adaptive turning light. Mechanical upgrades include the availability, as standard, of the BMW Motorrad Full Integral ABS Pro, and Dynamic Traction Control with three riding modes, including a new one called Eco for economical riding. Most important though is the fact that the R 1250 RT gets a 10.25-inch TFT color screen with integrated map navigation and connectivity. According to BMW, this is the first time a motorcycle has been fitted with a screen that allows maps to be displayed directly in the instrument cluster. “We have given the R 1250 RT a new look, a comprehensive increase in standard equipment and numerous technical upgrades to achieve a whole new riding experience,” said in a statement Harald Spagl, Project Manager at BMW Motorrad. “As a dynamic tourer with the incomparable BMW ShiftCam engine, it also has the perfect power unit with impressive power across the entire speed range.” For now the
