Yeah,...:freaky

I rode it a few years ago with a team of friends from Cullman, Al. Plus I've raced Hare-Scrambles down in Maplesville several times.

Are you gonna ride it?:ear

Some Dude 04-26-2009 05:54 AM

nope, spent a shitload of money and time to do that event last year and had more fun the couple years before just hanging around and offering support.

You couldn't pay me to ride a KLR after the first hour of that event, it gets so whooped out it's not even funny. :deal

Enjoy!

Yeah....but if you just roll over the whoops kind of nice and easy it ain't that bad.:D

I know winning ain't in the story, but it'll be fun, and it will be a good story anyhow. I'm just looking at it as a nice long trail ride.:huh

I can't wait till the Le-mans style start when everybody lines up, runs across a field to their bike and tears out...

I'll stretch a bit, walk over to the ol 30k+ mile KLR, turn the key, push the button, and ride off nice and easy:rofl ....every bit of energy waisted the first hour is energy lost for the 24th.:D

18 laps Iron man on a 2 stroke is an accomplishment, 18 laps on a KLR would be a miracle. We've supported an IronMan 40+ in open class on a BMW G650X 2 years ago, he got 17laps and is a very accomplished endurance rider on a bike better suited for that type of event.

Good luck with it.

Sell 20 Husky's for me and I'll give you a Husky to ride all the time and call it your own :deal :freaky

Bad Monkey Racing will be there :clap ..........I guess we are pussies because we are riding a 06 KTM 450XC instead of a KLR :eek1 . This will be our first time racing this event.

Should be easy right, Get someone to buy a husky for every lap you do, kind of like the charity walks/marathons where folks donate money for each mile. But in this case they buy a Husky for their own use (they already make out there cause they don't know what they're missing anyhow) and I'll go with your 18 lap offer. Get 18 folks to buy Husky's in support and You'll have a free one to abuse(and it might be a bit easier to get to 18 laps on a Husky maybe?) Easy enough right? Just let me know where to deliver them :lol3

That sounds like a great idea,...wish I'd thought about it a year ago.:huh

I'm looking forward to the raceday, are you going this year? riding? Bringing a ride for someione else?

Look me up there.:freaky
