Where is a good meet up point for everyone and what time? I'm thinking something like 11am at the Tims in Cochrane?

There are actually quite a few people out there at this time of year. I've been in the area the last three Sundays. Going out tomorrow too. Brap!

Only one Tim's I think... West side of 22 by the 1A exit. How many to expect plus myself and Tyler?

Anybody know where in town I can get Mitas tires or are they only/best through MX1?
I'm looking to give the E09 or E07 a whirl when I take the k60s off.
Thanks
Paul

I'm running a E09 front/E07 rear on my 990 right now and like the combo very much.

Ordered through MX1 as I think they are the only game in town in Canada for Mitas tires.

You guys do the Dakar model? Any point in having the extra ply?

I got the dakar ones for the vstrom. Not sure if they are better, but they are the dakar so must be better.

Shipping from mx1 was quick and free.

Mitas

GW Cycle is a dealer for Mitas, but they just order them from MX1, so with delivery to your door from MX1 it is easier to just order from them. The Dakar is better if you are doing something like the Dempster, but otherwise the non-Dakar is sufficient. Cheers, David

I have the E07 non dakar on my 650 and they say right on the tire that they are 4 ply...so I'm not sure what the difference could be between the Dakar and non Dakar?

In case anyone was waiting as I was, A Vicious Cycle/Twisted Throttle has the Mefo SE in stock again. I got my 150/70 R18 for the KTM 950 a few days ago. I can't believe I haven't even had a chance to try it out yet. Took one week to come in from the US to Ontario, then 3 days to here.

*** Day 3 of Nordegg and Area ***

I won't be able to down load pictures of the Nordegg area since the folks at the Nordegg hotel are per-snickity with the wifi !!!

All of the main roads are bare and dry, as the smaller side roads are still wet, the FTR North of Nordegg is like a high speed hwy, I'll check the South part today too see where the gal from Edmonton went missing at North Ram river km 22 marker, they found the car but not her !!! Strange it is.

I got to the top of one MT with bump, grind, and chew, and the husky oil dude told me that I would not of made it had I not spent my fund on the KTM 990 !!!


(Too funny) that was since I didn't have the hart to tell him it is a fake home made KTM 690. Ha Ha (Not).

Just an old KLR 705 big bore with K-60 tires (Hot knife cut grove tires for the nasty stuff...

I can't wait too put 1 or the other Hot Cam packages in the beast to bring this monster alive.

But I have all season for this to happen.

Anyways, they put in 4 new roads up here too go alnog the the other 20 that went in over the last 2 years, so this works out to a little over 1500 kms of gravel with multy thousands of cut blocks and cut lines.


She all inter-links with end-less possibilities. Sun Child West to Park boundries, Hwy 11 to Nordegg River raod and further North then that into endless awesome-ness.
