WMRS July 31 - Aug 3 Socal Riders

Just thought of starting a thread here for us socal riders who plan on attending. We can coordinate our plans and dates hoping to find a riding buddy on our way up there. Either riding, trucking, or trailering, it's always fun and good idea if we can share company.

http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=343294

I plan to leave on Friday noon Aug 1st. Thinking of riding the GS and prefer to ride along with other big bikes.

Great

Great idea. Dyvking and I are heading up dragging the bikes, but not sure about departure time yet. You know, now that I think about it, if we put the bikes on a trailer that might be easier on them.

Question

The mole is seriously considering this ride....however, will the trustworthy KLX 250s be ok on a ride like this?

I guess I should have said i would trailer the bike up there and then ride !

If you're trailering, there are guys who will be interested to share the ride and gas. Speak up quick guys while there's still a chance!
