We have several rides and events this year and I am also attending the C600, but I will do my best to attend.


Congrats on the orange toy! You will love it!

It's called The Bakery.


And I ride different bikes, but don't have any orange ones.


Sometimes my GS gets lost and goes places it shouldn't probably go.
Hopefully I will see you there...

Hey, were you riding your 950? We had just left The Bakery after having a late breakfast at Teledoug's place and saw a single rider go though town.

Yep, the valley in the spring is beautiful and green with the aspens finally in leaf. However, we still had frost this morning, and snow only a week ago. Hopefully we will have rain this summer to keep things green for the September rally!

Looks like typical 950 oil change to me!
Crap mines due too!

Nice to see some activity in this thread again. Since I can't make it happen this year all I can do is follow along online and think back to how much fun the Rally was in Bend last summer.

Post lots of photo's everyone!

It's official... I can't make it... F'ughhh. Have to attend a wedding in Rome. Tickets purchased... no getting out of it unless groom-to-be bails. And I can't bribe him 'cause he's rich.

Last year's KTM Rally was great, but I was really looking forward to this year's CJ Pre-Rally at the SS campground.

Pics, Pics, Pics.... Please!

I can beat that!


Mine developed head gasket issues after a fast trip to Prairie de Chien. And, then I threw out my back trying to lift the motor into my Xterra. I landed on the driveway with the motor on top of me because, in that second or two of excruciating pain I was experiencing after the back gave way, I was calculating in my head the cost of new engine cases if I dropped the motor. I couldn't get out of bed the next day, so EMS had to come take me to the ER for the good drugs. In addition to some bizarre head gasket issues, the original cams are pitted, as is common on the original engines. So those are getting replaced with 990 R cams.

So,
  1. The bike's not ridable,
  2. My back hurts,
  3. I'm out of Valium,
  4. I've got bizarre bruising on my chest in the shape of a V-twin, and
  5. My ass hurts from my wife chewing it out because of the engine rebuild cost.
So, while I do admire your efforts to definitively establish your bike's center of gravity, I just want you to know that any problems you think you have . . . really aren't that bad.
