Owzitgoin, I have same prob as newguy, I am in France but an Aussie, so no chance soon to ride together but wish you the best. Some of the best off-road riding in OZ (though I rate South America higher cos it has insane mountains)!!

Running in service cost me £200 at Roy Pidcock long Eaton uk fell like I was robbed  they even wanted charge me extra £15 for tensioning the chain till I told them it was running too slack when I picked it up

Wow - that's expensive! It was £100 for my running in service, including tensioning the chain. Don't dealers realise that being stung means you don't go back! Ever!

Hi and welcome to the forum.

The 850 is a great bike - Lighter than teh 1200-1250 and does evrything well.

If you use the sat images you could identify a nearby feature or two and orient your phone to match the features. On Google maps there is a North indicator, from that you could determine the compass point you needed. Old school compass orienteering adapted to modern tech.

You do have to remove the plastic cover to access the cable.
