This thread is about all the planning this group can muster.

Looks like we're meeting at the Country Kitchen in Athol at 8:00am Saturday morning for a dual sport ride that will last as long as we want. I might bail early. This would be a good group to go with. We're out to have a good ride, nothing too fast.

Looks like I will be showing up Sat. morning. Dillon change the spockets and chain on the Superbug for me so I don't have a wimpy excuse not to come. Oh yeah and Dillon says he will even ride to Athol with me to make sure I get there.

See you guys Saturday.

Continental Divide Trail This August - Anyone Interested???

Hello All,

I am planning to do the Continental Divide Trail this August. Anyone interested in going? leave date is open. I have been working to get my KLR650 ready. Still haven't purchased a GPS. Everyone seems to like the Montana. Pretty rich for my budget. Looking at etrex Vista HCx. Mainly I just want to be able to follow Big Dogs track. Always looking for input on what it takes to accomplish this ride. Thanks...dave

I've got that planned for next year but this year I'm doing the WABDR in August if you're interested.

If you'd like to bail a bit quicker, it's easy go hop over to Clark Fork or down the CDA river road and slab it back in a hurry. Of course, I might just be tired and decide to shorten my day too!
I gonna try and make this one, its been a couple of years since I did an ADV ride. Will have to verify my schedule tomorrow.

Eagle Creek near Murray is doable, but somewhat technical and time consuming, kind of a wild ride on a big bike, numerous water crossings and you will get wet. I would advise caution depending on a riders ability.

Thanks for the heads up, good to know. We may want to do the more major FS roads down that way, I'll load a track.

Hello Jeff,

I didn't really mention my ride back from Enterprise a few weeks back. Basically it was blowing the bells of Hell. I was pushing it a little in the twisties going down to the Grande Ronde River. I went around one of the corners that was exposed to the full force of the wind and damn near kissed a guard rail. So....I slowed down and a few turns later I was behind a white pick up with 2 dogs in the back. It was going slow and the dogs were happy to see me, at least their barks seemed happy. I was thinking that I probably need to go slow any way. So the dogs and I barked at each for a mile or so and then the truck slowed down to let me pass. Just as I moved over to go by, there was a white flash, a roar and a big KTM (white...not orange) smoked past me. Damn! The down shift was lightning fast! The big KTM was picking up a 1,000 rpms per second! 3 seconds later...it was gone. So...I was thinking I had just been Moto-treked!

I enjoyed our visit at camp. You gave me stuff to think about. Is a 1150GS in my future?? I will pass on the WABDR. I did read your road report on S America. I'm thinking Mexico down to La Paz this winter. Your report will help on that trip. Alaska again next summer. so many roads...so little time/money! Take care....dave

Possible list of caches to try for.

Pend-O-cache
Lonely Lilac
Whisky on the rocks
2706 trail top
Montana/Idaho divide
Little Guard

I'm hoping to plant one at Spion Kop. If you have any suitable trinkets, especially ADV related, might want to bring them.

I do remember some of that Moto-treked? Dang I'll have to give you a sticker It was windy that day wasn't it. But, the rain had cleaned the road so there wasn't a lot of junk all over it.

Take notes on the Continental Divide I hear there is a lot of re-routing due to the fires in Colorado.

Thanks, I haven't even looks at maps yet. I'll get these loaded in my GPS. I don't have any ADV trinkeets but I do have Ladybug trinkets.

Moto-Treked I guess I was Moto-Treked coming out of Troy but it was a nice slow sane pass. Thank you.
