Allen's ride report should be posted tomorrow. Don't think there will be many pics, but should be a good story.



Hey, y'all ever seen a KLR clear a tabletop jump?

One bent radiator cost me about 20 min. on the loop , plus a lot of energy

Next morning...........broken footpeg bolts ended my day.


99.5 miles of sand,whoops, ruts, and rocks.

I'll get back with ya'll later...I'm tired.

Bad Monkey Racing's 06 KTM 450XC survived and we finished 2nd in +30 Sportsman........Yes the track conditions were nice not a lot of dust at all....I think we only did two air filter changes.

Yep, that hill is where the left radiator got smashed back into the fan....lost a lot of energy wrestling that thing back upright from laying down gthe hill on my left leg

Lost about 20 min. right there, and I guess the energy drain cost me much more in the long run.

Congratulations Al. 9 laps on a broken and wheezing KLR. Simply making a go of the +40 Iron man . . . big ol' brass huevos . . . well done.

BTW - what was Paul Broome riding? Surely it was not his XR650R. Paul finished 2007 Dakar on a BRP . . . kick start only . . . Dunes in Mauritania and he was kicking that bastard after he'd pick it up . . . you had some tough competition . . . .

Heck...I can't remember what everyone was riding...but I know there were no XR650Rs around.

There was a good looking Gas-Gas there, and a new Husaberg, not the 450, whqt ever the 500cc+ size is. Great looking bike.

Paul was riding a new 'Berg (not sure about displacement).

I pitted next to Allen and was impressed with the KLR. Then I got to see him ride. Brass ones indeed!

Well done, Allen.

Thanks for the good words Chuck...

I hope your feeling a bit better than the last time I saw you...

Heel up quickly...There's lots of races this summer.
