Coming are 3-4 990's and a Ducati Multi. Well.....we wont talk about the Ducati. He can get our take out pasta while we get muddy.

Your opinons please.
Trailering a 990? You need to ride those things

I'm thinking of stopping off at the event during my Continual Trail ride. Seems like a great place to start/end/visit during any ride

Laugh I would love to participate bu need to rent a bike!

I am from Brazil and would love to participate at the 2013 KTM National Rally, but it is to far way to bring my bike.. Do you guys think it would be possible to rent a bike, even a smaller one to participate?

I will be in the USA around this date and I would love to participate.

Because wasting fuel and tires on the fly over states sounds like so much fun...

How about a nice Harley Davidson Last time I check into renting those were about all I could find.

CMurgel, bike rentals

Hello CMurgel, I think the bike rental options may have improved and the ride will be super. Harry Hill , Basin Motor Works, Mancos, CO is/will be renting KLR bikes by that time.

If this is of interest to you, let me know , I will put you in contact with Harry, or contact you , or what ever works best for you.

Yes, I know KLR, but still a bike, still 2 wheels and the awesome roads will not know the difference.

Keep in touch, gale

Well I guess I got something in common with them then after all.

Considering I could tow a trailer with my friends in it to steamboat springs for 900 dollars spending 225 dollars a person on gas (assuming 4 people) and tow straight through because we could alternate drivers, and have completely fresh knobbies already mounted on the bike ready to go instead of having to spend half a day changing tires when you got there.

Or we could all ride out there and spend an extra day or 2 on the road spend 340 dollars a person in gas and have to change tires.

Not to mention the logistical hassle of breaking a bike and the fact you'd spend more time getting to and from where you want to ride instead of riding where you want to ride...

Yep sounds like a great idea to ride there.

I'm in Olympia and think I could get a couple guys from this area to trailer and split costs. We should try to plan way ahead so i can approve it with the boss

Yep, that would be worth doing. You will get plenty of info on the multitude of roads that will take you north towards Glacier. A lot of inmates from CO have ridden that way lots of times!
Of course you may get too caught up in the excellent ridin' in the CO rockies to make it north to Montana.

You could rent an 990 Adventure from these guys and have an epic ride from San Fran to Colorado and back after the Rally depending on how much time you have.
