In fact, I been meanin to call that boy and see what he is up to! Take care.
Tim Oleary 'ol boy, one of these days we ARE gonna hook up!
But the rest of this year is about booked for me. You know I work every other month, and I plan about a year ahead......
June is a one day DS ride before an Arkansas Hare Scrambles Race. Then Sindy and I are off on our ST and trailer loaded with camping gear towards the Smokys.
July/Aug is a truck trip (4X4 trucks being my 2nd hobby) through the canyon lands of Utard.

But not much planned for November......so maybe we should come up with a plan!!?? Lets look at that. I LOVE riding during deer season! That's not a joke, I do. I like stopping and talking to all those guys dressed like KTMs.

ride straight,
devro

Thanks for the background! That is interesting. Like I said, you get the iron butt award this year.

I agree that you will have a lot more fun on a WR250F in these parts than the Tiger. Great looking bike tho! You might want to think about trailering the WR up here though! LOL.

Sounds like a plan. I will start working on it from this end. You think about it as well, and see if we come up with the same idea. Fat chance but sounds like fun nonetheless.

Hey BIG dude, I didn't "let" you hang with the RED Team, it just worked out that way. And it was good. Sometimes good Karma makes things happen and happen for the best.

I enjoyed meeting you and ridinging with you and swilling a few buckskins and tanglefoot around the campfire with you.

And it was kool to see you ride the hell out of that GSA!!!

And it would be good if we get to meet up again.

ride straight,
devro

Yeah, I have read that report. It's insane and a great read. Gotta say that's pretty impressive.

It takes me so long to upload videos I have to do them one at a time. I'll keep them coming. Here is a photo of day one riders getting ready.

This photo is out of order, Day two near Hawe Creek Falls.

A photo from the bridge looking north. I lead the Orange group, or the "Im not in a hurry group". Here is the thing though. We had to ride 180 miles in 9 hours. That means we needed to average 20 miles each hour....right?

We made good time to Kingston for gas and ran in to the Blue group getting a snack.

Then I started shooting video on my new contour. I'm uploading video as I speak and will post soon...

This video is south of the MCWMA. Our group started to ride better together after I stopped and had a little chat about four digit roads that say private drive at the bottom. Most of these type roads are not on the route and do not require our riders to stop, unless the leader knows better. By agreeing to this I was able to ride to the next turn at any pace I chose, then just wait for the next rider to show up, then take off...simple.
