How bad do you think this would be on a DRZ with a moderately competent rider? I don't want to slow you guys down too much, but I want to have some fun!

I'm the wrong guy to ask as I was riding this type of stuff on a XR650R. Totally wrong bike but it did handle it.

What I can say is as a group I'm not worried about going slow, fast or whatever. I'm happy to lead a group and we go as fast as the slowest rider. These events/rides are not about racing.

There might be at times spots where we spot each other, drag each others bikes up a ledge or ride it up for a rider. Expect to pickup your bike a few times but we will jump in and help. Oh and we won't leave people behind.

So come out you will be okay in any ride I lead.

I'm so excited almost time for this ride.....

You got the trailer ready? Toss some wood in if you got it so we can have a fire as we are there a night before the Koko riders ;-)

Mostly. Still working on it, among other things, like getting the jeep checked out after the sideswipe, and building a rear rack for the ktm.

Trial run!

My daughter and I are headed to Fruita tonight for a shake down cruise in Rabbit Valley! Weather looks good ( 70+ this weekend) for some loops in the area. We will check out the conditions on part of the Koko and report back with a teaser photo or twenty!

Can't wait to blow of the cob webs on me and the bikes!

If you take your bike out for a little test ride in the neighborhood, don't try and pop a wheelie in the driveway, because you'll probably be coming in too hot onto the slick floor of the garage to be able to stop in the proper upright position.

DAMHIK.
