Pretty tasty, they sell it at a few places around Columbus. I've managed to cage a few growlers off of them if I catch one of them there working.

Rain delayed today, but I'm heading out tomorrow bright and early.

Ride Details:

Leave Columbus Thursday Morning; head south east on 33 and 50. Take Middle Mountain Rd and Back Mountain Rd South, eventually turning a bit west and ending at a free national park campground near the New River Gorge Bridge at the bottom of West Virginia.

Friday morning ziggy-zaggy south on state routes and small roads, ending at the families place in Greenville, SC, hopefully early afternoon.

Saturday and Sunday stay with the family in Greenville, SC

Monday morning head west into the Smokey Mountains. Do one loop of good roads there, and continue west on the Cherahola Skyway to Chattanooga. Stay with a motorcycle friend Monday night in Chattanooga.

Tuesday, head west on small roads to the Mississippi River, Stay at a free primitive campground on the River, south of Memphis; Lone Pine Campground in the St Francis National Forest.

Wednesday, keep heading west on small roads to a Zach and Carries place in Texas, north of Dallas.

Thursday, turn north on small roads into the Ozark Mountains to the very corner of Arkansas, Kansas, and Oklahoma; where I’ll pickup historic Route 66.

Follow Route 66 to St. Louis, where I’ll stare at the arch a bit, and pickup Route 40, which I’ll take all the way home.

(Thursday and Friday nights are not planned, I’ll either throw the tent up somewhere when it’s time, or more preferably, find some cool old Route 66 motel to stay for cheap.) I anticipate being home Saturday… but who knows!

SPOT will go live tomorrow morning: http://mikef5000.whereamiriding.com/

I'll post if I can. Talk to you all later!

Take it down to the Baltic Bar and Grill and drink it with a Blazing Bitch Burger.

Got the Trick Dual Sport kit for the 450EXC and installed it tonight. I've read of people installing them in "an hour or two". I must be slow, it took me 5, but I'm kind of picky about that stuff.
I upgraded the stator to a custom wound Trick unit, upgraded to a larger Ah battery, and converted to bike to all DC. IIRC it's like a 200W stator. Installed a KTM fan kit, too. Also swapped out the diamond shaped headlight for a rectangle unit, but its not the stock KTM one. Makes it look like an 04, but it has pretty good light output.
Now I just need to transfer the title & sign the affidavit to get some tags. It has signals, a horn, & all the good stuff (except DOT tires).
Any of you guys add keys or a hidden kill switch? That's the only thing I feel I'm missing.

Ohio doesn't have a DOT tire requirement, FYI, only a tread depth requirement.

I had a fuse blow out on the WR last night. The one for the turn signals. The dash went out too but it stayed running until I turned it off. It wouldn't start after I turned it off though. I replaced the fuse and everything seems fine. Not sure why it blew out though. I checked the wires and none looked frayed or anything...

Sounds like you are set. Didn't add the key switch or anything to mine either. I figure if someone wants it there is probably more chance that they are just going to throw it into a pickup and take off and usually when riding the KTM, I never stray too far from it.
