When I pulled in for gas, I put 6.5 gallons in (.5 gallon left) at 262 miles :( I thought for sure the range with 7 gallons would be around 350. It seems the 14t sprocket and 70MPH don't mix.

Spinning your rear wheel in sand doesn't help either. Neither does spillage from dropping your bike.

I too have been playing around with the range of the X and have been surprised at times how little I can go.

i have no idea who elses are with you. meantime, ktmami was worried that alon was still in rowher. sito, ktami, and i went back to rowher and look for alon and whoever was with him. in the process we wasted a good hour and eventually lost sito.

we all know having a big group is like herding cats. situation like this, we need to stay on course and maintain good communication. breaking away from the group is ok with me, as long you guys personally tell me or let us know in advance before the start of the ride. having different agendas does not work well in a big group.

to all, whenever possible, when we plan the ride, we ride the plan..
Yep. We met at Spunky, as per the plan...

i think you snapped this pic about 30 seconds after john got the call that his wife wrecked her ankle, and he ain't gonna get no wifey fun for awhile. can you tell by the look on his face?

I swear I'm going to get some nerf mini footballs and tape them to my pressure suit to force my elbows out.

Nowadays, I think the only reason Joel falls is so he can buy some more new gear.


Nice report you world famous n00b. I wanted to join you guys but found a sheared off subframe bolt on Saturday night.

I call on this one Biggie. You haven't ridden your bike enough to shear a bolt off it.
