New to dual-sport/off-roading

Just swapped my MV Agusta Brutale with 24k miles for a new X-Country--I know, I know, but anyway, looking for good rides close to Tempe where I won't get in too far over my head.

Thanks!

We are working on some plans for rides in the east valley starting on or about the second week in Jan 2009, should not anything over your head. We are a mixed bunch as far as exp goes, but the experienced riders are working with us, if you have nothing to do on Sundays, why not ride up and meet us? We meet at Starbuck SWC of Tatum and Bell Rd @8:00am every Sunday unless a ride is scheduled. BTW, not being familiar with who makes the X-Country I found that it is a Bemmer. You would be the first Bemmer in the group!

Post meeting......donuts

Most KLR riders that are stable usually consume at least 3-12 dunkin donuts per month. This is a global figure, really

For those of you who use Microsoft IE as a web browser. Microsoft just release that IE has a sever security flaw that they have no fix for yet and are advising all users to stop using IE until a fix is available. I myself have switched to Firefox until this flaw is fixed. Issue is that hackers can trap your security codes and passwords!

Just a heads up for those SDSR's

KTMSER and Blue Streak - have you guys had a chance to upload any pictures from the CK ride yet?

I should have brought a camera on that one. It just didn't even occur to me when I was headed out that morning. Of course, judging by how long it is taking me to put together a ride report for the ride Joy and I did down to Southeastern AZ I probably still wouldn't have anything posted!

I understand that attachments are not available right now, but others are posting pictures. How do they do it????


Ahh.....nevermind.....I just figured it out..... I've gotta put my pics on a server somewhere else first.

Working on it.

Impossible to get photos of Spencer in action cause he's too fast.
I've gotta get one of those high speed cameras to capture him on film.
usually all I can get is the dust he leaves behind.
