So far it looks like there is only 3 or 4 of us going.... Would be fun if we had a few more... It's a great way to meet us goons and join in on the fun we have!

Can we modify that statement a bit, e.g. "us goons (and Randy)" or similar? I mean somebody has to be responsible or we'd never make it back . . .

I will re-evaluate that statement after the ride (with pictures) to see who gets the Gold Star. Hahhahaha

Also, you kinda invented goon riding... Remember that wheelie you did in Costa Rica???

Thanks Paul, it looks like I will need some help keeping the goon bros. under control lol. Wait - you have to have aftermarket exhausts or you won't be able to keep up

Great ride yesterday!

Bruno, Randy, and I ended up riding some of the thumb instead of our more northern plan. I think we ended with about 240 miles. Also checked out Grace Powersports as they started carrying KTM's. Nice people, and nice inventory!

We started the day with the nasty stuff to get it out of our system..







Dont let the pictures fool you... Behind those trees were rocks, mud, logs, dead bodies?, and all kinds of stuff.

Then we had some casual riding....



Had a lot of fun drifting the many corners, and poppin wheelies on the many straight-aways. Even got to jump some unexpected train tracks.

And we're pretty sure we saw this guy at a diner in Caro....


Actually, guy we saw made him look like a midget. He was very friendly as he was clenching his fists while talking to us about our $3-$4k KayTeeEms that probably came from Chicago or sumpthin.

Hahahaha! Great times yesterday! Cant wait for the next one.

Sorry Randy, you were def. a goon yesterday.

Jon

Was somebody looking for a new KTM 990?

FunMart in Moline IL has a 2012 990, a white one, brand new. I bet it's on sell.
