I've done the Flint Hills Stampede twice. 2008 and 09. First year we rode our KLR's all the way from OKC.
Had a good time both years.
Kansas has a reputation of being flat but it has some good riding.

You just need to know where to go.
They just had the 2013 Stampede last weekend.

Yep, I've done that ride a few times as well. I didn't know if I would be available this year or not, so I didn't sign up. The weekend opened up, so I just decided to take off and ride from home and do a similar route backwards. Turned out to be a nice day. Cool country down that way.

Sometimes it's hard to tell, when you have your eyes closed. . Speaking just for myself of course.

It was a blast! I was nervous about breaking that frame. Even with aftermarket suspension, the EM subframe bolt upgrade, and the fork brace, the pucker factor was at about a level 10.

My eyes were closed and my tongue was sticking out for that precision landing.

I think it belongs on the front page slide show.... but that's my biased opinion.

New-to-me side racks. I'm very happy with them so far.
