Nice logo, makes me think of a Mexican lost in a snowstorm wrapped up under his sombrero

If that goes through I reckon Woody'll be spending the night in the yard with a loaded shotgun in case anyone gets any ideas about midnight strolls with their tool kits.....

Edit...hoping to have new wheels for this one. 990 is 95% sold....just waiting on shipping confo and a final exchange and she's off to her new home.

LOL!...some of them are jumping ship....Orange Kool-aid is irresistible! I'll most likely be on a KTM 450 or 525/530. Looking to do a tidy little rally build in the spring.

Looking forward to the rally season kicking off. For this one, and because of deadly's love of water crossings, I'll have to be a bit more mindful. Where the 690 was good for middle of the seat depths I don't think the 500 will be as accomodating.

Less water crossings on the route than in previous years. Distance is a bit longer. Doable

Oh I didn't say no water...still a couple of dozen. One douzy of a section nicknamed "the mud slide"...unquestionably there will be a slew of photos from it

The bulk of the route consists of some fun double track trails connected by paved and gravel roads. 400-700 Cc bike kind of terrain, doable by skilled big bike riders (maybe )
