Rambo! He's adorable.
Thanks again for the photos - that great upsidedown pup cheered me up.
Nothing like a good dog to make you smile.

I was feeling a bit sad yesterday, it was my dear departed LD's birthday.
It has been a while, but I still miss him like crazy.

LD was an adventurer, he loved Baja. We spent a lot of time in the Sea of Cortez.

here he is on the hiking path above San Juanico. (scroll halfway down the page)

and he loved Death Valley, too.

For the dog lovers - have you seen this book? It was Matt's favorite book as a kid,
my mom found him this copy...

It's a really fun book. You might be able to find it at your local public library.

thank you, Caymen8!
I'm pleased you rode along with us!

We felt like Oso's on 450 KTM's only we were dubbed as the AARP Tour ,,, while at Newspaper Rock we were accused of stealing our grandkids dirt bikes ,, what a hoot... Hey I didn't have to get back home to go back to work though !

I love your reports , I know it takes a ton of time to write and post , but it is enjoyed by so many..

Ride safe ,,, well that never lasts very long ,just have fun !
If you ever come to E.Tn. you have a place to stay , Matt can even use my shop , maybe teach me something about my 990 ADV , great bikes..


You guys are the best , love to meet all the Oso's someday!
Hi Ronnie!
I'm really glad you enjoyed the report, and how fun that you were just there...
Thank you so much for the generous offer, that's really kind of you!

I know you're Orange through and through...
Not just for KTM, but...

No worries, it was a fun read!
also, that Three Forks Ranch doesn't raise anything...
It's a fancy-pants luxury resort and spa.
Matt and I rode past there on the CDT and i did some research for the ride report.

winter rates are something like $700-995 a night, per person

heh, I was just teasing those guys.
Even though they are Osos, Radek and Lica are still well-mannered Canadians!
I'm sure they were awesome!
It's fun to watch them ride.

Thanks for the epic ride report Kelly!
Aw, thanks Jonathan.
I know, I think the Osos miss it, too.

Here, I have a photo for you...

Matt didn't want to overuse pics of himself in the Rubicon posts, so he left this one out.
I like it, though.

I didn't respond to a bunch of comments during the Rubicon posts and the ending,
I'm sorry you guys!
We were slammed with work, and it was hard to get everything posted (and still eat and sleep).
But, hopefully the general thank you curtsey was adequate!
we did appreciate them just as much as all the others.

Just a couple...

love how resourceful you guys are
Great report!
Great riding guys!!!!!

I will never let anyone tell me again I can't ride single track again on my 990

thank you OSOs
Thank you AJ990R!
Yes! Don't let anyone else set your limits

Of course people can say, "I can't ride _____ on a big bike"
that's totally valid. and completely acceptable.

We just don't want people saying, "You can't ride _____ on a big bike."

There's a difference.

Well, wait - how do you know we can't?
Maybe we're a lot stupider than you are.

Anyway, thanks for signing in!
Glad you enjoyed the report.

What a great RR. Just like when Sharpie and I finished our TAT ride I am feeling a little sad this RR is over. To bad we didn't cross paths out on the TAT, but I do feel like the others that have followed this RR in that we were there because of your awesome ride reporting.

PS. Tell Big Wan that the next time he is cruising up over Donner Summit to take a little detour off 80 and check out the Fordyce Jeep trail I hear it can't be ridden on a big bike

Thanks again
You're welcome fletch123!
thank you so much for your comments - your photos and observations really added to the report!
You never told us about the workaround you and Sharpie took, but it must have been something.

Haha, I'll tell Matt about the Fordyce Jeep trail.
I'm sure if Radek sees that, he'll put in on our list for next time.

Thanks again - and if Sharpie is still looking for a 990, tell him to check out the bay area CL.

Thank you very much for the amazing report! If you happen to ride in central Mexico one of these days tell me and I'll invite you some cold ones ...

Thank you, Teli Rides!
Thanks for reading.
Hey, some day we might take you up on that offer!
Maybe you can pick out some nice trails for us to ride...

Would we get to meet your cute avatar?

Glad to see it.

Thanks for thinking of us,
But, Matt and I aren't looking for riding partners - we have our Osos.
and we still like to ride by ourselves, too.

What we need is a 2 up offroad race, though.
Deep sand, rock gardens, and no walking...
Now that would be fun.

OSO LOCO!! osoooo!

Oso bored? you can find the rest of our ride reports HERE
make stupid your favorite!
