They're civilians. They don't know shit. I would be surprised if it turned out to be a Buell.

A group of people with children called the ranger station to complain. I texted Rob at about 11:30 AM on Sat morn (so this happened Friday night)to give him a heads up in case it was anyone there at the C&R. It could have been a different group. In a seperate incident DEEP were looking for two KTM riders on 2 strokes that were caught going very fast on one of the dirt roads but ran from the cops.
No one was accusing you just trying to keep our group in the good category.
weird.. Most of us were camped pretty close to the soccer field there and yeah there were a few loud bikes (such as my f650) and a few people that rode OUT of the campground a little too aggressively but I don't think any of us heard/saw anyone ripping around in the field or anywhere in the campground for that matter. We would have told them to cut the shit before the group of people with children had the chance to call the police.. I got there around 4pm Friday and was at camp all evening and I never heard or saw anything like that...

There were a good number of bikes in the campground, at least 25 riders minimum spread out over at least 5 or 6 campsites... I suspect someone called the police and exaggerated what was going on to make it sound illegal.. And as Ken pointed out.. How would they know it was a 450 while it was supposedly blasting wheelies through the field? I can barely tell the difference between a 2 stroke and a 4 stroke ktm when it's parked. All the four strokes that are under 950cc look the same to me!

Thumb Have no idea how this "link" to smugmug might, or MIGHT NOT work...

My 1st Dual Sport/Camp-n-Ride weekend and I LOVED it!!! Thanks to akarob and any and all others that helped put it all together.

Here is my 1st attempt at posting some pics --- a little pre-ride/bike drama, and then a few typical campin' an ridin' pics...

Hope it works!!!

Hope to see many of you at future "Rides"/DS weekends/Camp-n-Rides, etc...

Al , I was at need for speed and there was a guy there that is a NETRA rider and acquaintance of the shop owner. He is a die hard Orange Koop aide drinker and has a couple KTM's himself. He rides the loop every Sunday morning and knows it very well, he is also a DR of some sort. He saw the guy driving around (not through) the field. Also a DEEP officer was at the store. When I walked in the Dr who knows me and my Beta asked me if it was one of our guys that owns the bike he saw. That is all. No harm no foul. I just wanted to give a heads up so none got busted and he just wants our good standing in that area to exist. I know nothing else except the guy is a real good dude. Deep said they were looking for the guy but that coulda been bs.
