KTM build is done, so personally i like to have around 5000 miles on a bike before i go to far afield, this way i can make any necessary adjustments/ modifications in my fully tooled up garage and not on the side of the road with a leatherman ...so this last weekend i headed off to Overland Expo (OX) with a few riders from Vegas riding a mix of pavement and dirt



for those of you that didn't get to go to OX, here's a little taste of the ride and the event

i headed down with adventurebound and teamvegas, and rode back with kevinsinvegas

total trip was just short of 900 miles



in thru Sedona



a little offroad to finish along schnebly hill road for the last 37 miles



avoiding the tour jeeps on probably the smoothest part of the trail



so OX has a little for everything and you don't have to go to Sturgis to see hogs



walking around the event...




rene cormier's RTW bike







Simon and Lisa Thomas are now in the States after riding 500,000 km's around the world so far...makes my 101,000 kms so far seem like a ride to the store!!!




and at the rich end of the spectrum




then the anything will do section...




and don't forget pedal power



Saturday night was capped of by Austin Vince and his 'world premier' of Mondo Sahara...



rode back to vegas with kevin...didn't have the big camera with me for this trip so a few shots with the point and shoot to finish riding thru Vermillion Cliffs and Zion

The KTM looks good... so how was the first time out?

Nice pics btw, but none with your matching orange pants?

Nice update Paul. It was great getting to meet you after reading of your adventures for so long.

I ran down Schnebly Hill non-stop after seeing you and found it rougher than I remembered, but a blast.

The bike looked great in person.




That is one sweet lc4!

not really back on the road completely, doing some break in rides on the new bike, i don't like to leave the country on a bike with less than 5000 miles on the clock, so still in a holding pattern while i sell more of my crap before i can take off again...but soon, can't wait
