not again!!!

Oh man I just walked in the door from the Cabot trail and now I have to think about leaving again. cjracer and questor I'll start working on some new early morning serenades maybe even some voice lessons. Should not take us more than a few thousand miles to get there.

If those crazy bastards from Canada show up I'll sing for you too/

I'm not too sure about a "Next Time"......

You guys are a pretty fearsome duo to be traveling with....

Glad you made it home safe Jeff.

Nothing that I've seen yet.

One thing I wish was that the Main Venue was setup closer to or at a camp ground/ Fair Ground. (Like the BMWMOA rallies) Find something with Cabins for those putting it on can stay in, or those Hoteling it can drive into town. Keep everyone as close together as possible.

At the end of the day, after a great ride, a large meal. Some beers at dinner are great, but getting on a bike to drive 10 miles out of town is a pain IMO.

I wish I could end the day, park the bike by the tent, and enjoy an evening of hanging out with fellow riders/campers. Walking around with a beer and good conversation around the fire.

The Camp night with Jimmy Lewis and crew was a perfect example and a great way to get fellow camping riders to travel in together.


Jimmy was a great addition to the Rally this year.

I prefer more Adventure-Outdoors and less Hotel-City, but that's me. It's 2 nights of camping, it does the body good to get out and smell the fresh air, see the stars, and have a drink around a fire with friends.

I have no say in it one way or another, but the more input KTM gets from riders that attend, I would hope the better the Rally would be and grow in the future.

It's great to see the Rally growing the KTM name is getting out.

What kind of thougths do others have about the event? (Just in case KTM does read this.)

I fully agree with you Craig. Rallies are for camping, not moteling. Unfortunately, Steamboat isn't very camper friendly. There is only one commercial campground in the area and it's about 5 miles from downtown and the nearest motels/restaurants. It's an old KOA with camping cabins and the tent area is on an island surrounded by the Yampa river. I don't know if KTM could reserve the entire island. The free bus to town uses the campground as a turn around but I don't think it runs late at night. That means everyone would have to drive to town to eat, drink, and be merry.

Oregon to Colorado is about 1200 miles (1930km). Personally I'd suggest spending a whole week in Colorado and Utah.

Okay, I have a full year to get my bike back together again. There's no way my 990 won't make it this year. Unless it becomes a 1090 but I think I still have time for that. I promise that whatever I ride to Steamboat next year will be interesting.

I agree with CJ, it would have been perfect to combine more options at the rally in one location. I would have camped out more in Bend if it was at the venue. But I liked having a warm bed and hot shower on my arrival. I put Spencer and I through two long, full days getting to Bend and we arrived at 1:30am to high 30's passing Elk Lake with frost on the ground and a smoke haze. That ski condo rocked.

But the resort closed up too early at times. I missed out on meeting and hanging out with a lot of cool riders.

Jimmy Lewis was the FUCKIN BOMB!!! Thanks KTM for that virtuoso move.

I had way too much fun riding back... 3.5 weeks. Not sure how to pull off an encore. But already working on it. It was fantastic!!! Everyone I met was top notch. CJ is the real deal too!!!

Steamboat Springs doesn't really have an off-season these days, but there's no shortage of accommodations.
