Hi ian408,
We met Kari, on the white late-model Tiger 800 and her friend, John (?), on the '08 KTM 950 ... they were staying at the Parkfield Inn, and they passed us on the Parkfield Grade and again on Rt 25, and we chatted with them at the store in Pacines ... super nice people ... forgot to ask him if he was on ADV, but he admitted to owning a bunch of KLRs over the years, so ...

Thanks!

The Parkfield Inn is a nice spot. Rooms are comfy and the food is good. Picked up LTS after his breakdown and saw the 950/Tiger sitting there. LTS was there for a while, me? Just long enough to say hello to the Varian's and then loaded up and gone. Just curios if it was anyone here.

Looks like you had a great adventure!
