Speaking of the orange, I was at Westfield Yamaha on Saturday and they had about 10 of the orange bikes lined up in the showroom... apparently they are now a KTM dealer. Nice looking bikes... they had one street legal 350EXC-F... tasty.

Anybody?




Woodsrat and I have been chewin the fat about different types of Moto events and came to the conclusion that it would be fun to try one.
This post is to gauge interest among our band of merry eatery meeter's and flash mob riders.

The event would be a Time, Speed, Distance course. Where riders try to follow a course with hints, turns and speeds, ultimately to arrive at checkpoints at predetermined times. The rider that hits all the points closest to the prescribed times will take home the gold.

It would take place on the many small back roads that we all like to piddle on. Best of all, anyone could do this. I think it would be a great way to put a twist on a ride.

And besides, who could resist a big bacon breakfast in the morning and a awards dinner at the return...

So.... What say you?

Only clocks and route sheet computations would be allowed for an event like this. The emphasis is to follow a predetermined route using a few clues and maintain the given speed average(s). By not allowing the various navigational doohickies and timekeeping devices the event would be challenging instead of a cakewalk with massive ties. (We could still end up with ties if sharp timekeepers showed up but at least among the guys I ride with there aren't any old enduro riders who have mastered this dying art.)
Sounds like a ton of fun...BUT if I can't use the GPS that I've become so dependent on over the last few years, are you gonna give me a time handicap of some sort? I gotta have extra time to stop every so often, park the bike on the side of the road, shut the engine off, jump across the ditch and run into the woods to start feeling the trees to find the growing moss which tells me which way due north is. Then it's back out of the woods, jump the ditch again, put the kickstand up, start the engine and take off again. All this effort takes extra time...especially if I accidentally fall into that ditch and come out soaking wet!

All kidding aside, I'd like to give it a shot. Have never, ever run any sorta roll chart/route sheet/etc... Who's volunteering to gimme a crash course in that sorta venue?

(Side Note: My Dad always had some sorta built in magic gene or something. I swear, that man could put you within ten feet of any given target 50 miles away, in a blinding snowstorm & all done at night if he had to. He never carried so much as a compass to guide him either. Always amazed me!...unfortunately, that particular gene was never passed down to me for some silly reason.)
