      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Fuel Paks

Recommended Posts

Only time I thought about having one was on long rides where someone may run out of fuel. My cousin ran out once, but he didn't have his tank toped all the way off when we left.

Depends on what you ride and where you ride. My machine is pretty thirsty so yes, I do use it. Be aware the new style flat packs have a terrible seal around the cap and will probably leak if you lay them flat. It took several calls to the manufacture to get a different style cap that seals better, but it's still not perfect. If I had to do it all over I would carry a couple 2 gal cans on the front rack and be done with it. Cheaper too.

I have the large (3 Gal) fuel pack. I really like it! Its mounted under my rear rack-pack. I use it fairly often since when I ride its usually long days. I have it setup so I can get it off in a couple minutes. I haven't had any trouble with the cap leaking (once I figured out how the seal was supposed to be installed)

We just got back from our annual "spring ride" where we rode 8 hrs the first day, 13 hours, 12 hrs, 10 hrs and 7 the last day. We put on about 370 miles total. The first couple days we used quite a bit more gas than usual because in many places in the woods there was 8,10 maybe 12 inches of sugar snow. I normally never get less than 20 or 22 mpg, but at one point we were on a trail, going down hill and all 5 of us were stuck. Not one of the machines was stock either. All of them have either oversize 589s, Bearclaws, MudSharks or Mud hogs.

I have given some thought to plumbing it it with a separate shut off so I dont have to remove it except to fill it. That might fool a couple of my buddies when I never have to go on reserve. wink
