Those guys are hard core for sure. I know when we rode the TAT I had my reservations. Bu they rode those bikes into the ground. Did Chuck replace the 640 or just spruce it up? It was pretty knackered at the end of the TAT.

I'll think about Peoria.

Thanks

Yes, he has the 640, but both he and Dan bought DR650's. They like them, but all three want 690's. Gene meet us in Shelbyville Friday morning. I rode back home and the four of them rode on into the sunrise. Later, I was pulled over by state cops. They thought, since I was on a moto, I must be a bad guy. It was very strange. The day ended for me with running out of gas and meeting another cop.

I got pulled over on my 690 once as well. The guy looked at my tag and told me to go on.

I bet you can buy three DRs for the price of a new 690. They were cheap when we bought ours. They ain't no more.

Met a guy in MI that has a 690 Rally Factory Replica. Also Mark, one of Radeks buddies, he had a Yamaha 450 Rally bike he got from Jonah Street. That bike was a head turner for sure.

Let's see the real bike, the Katoom.

Have fun. Watch out for bears.

I think the proper perspective of this KTM would be with the front wheel extended high in the air.. Gary has arranged 12 rear tire exchanges along the route. They'll be waiting for us like a Indy Car Pit Stop... The kid can ride!
