XR4EVER, that ride was a little more "adventure" than I prefer for sure. I remember tipping my Connie over on a rural road about 400 miles from home one day. It started sliding down the bank but I was able to stop it from going too far. There was no way I could lift it back up onto the road. That was a very lonely feeling. Eventually someone drove up and helped me with it.

Watch out Spokane! This girl is mere months away from riding the streets like a hooligan on a vintage Honda. I've got to build the sucker first but I'm super excited so I think she'll come together quickly. If anyone is interested in seeing how it's coming (and gauging how long until you need to avoid me on the streets) you can see pics of her on the new thread I started- The Ballad of Jane Honda: A vintage rebuild. http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=837276

Yes, I did...a lot! This would have been a great trip on a dual sport. All, that is, except for the four days hiking down in the Grand Canyon. Just got back this evening. After the Grand Canyon we hit Wupatki National Park where I addicted my hiking partner on Anazasi ruins. Then off to Bluff, UT, where we hiked Comb Ridge looking for more ruins, drove through Valley of the Gods, Drove up and back down Moki Dugway (WOW!), and took in the scenery from Muley Point. The next day we went down to Mexican Hat and visited Monument Valley. That night I found the bike of my dreams...an early 80's (?) Beemer GS. Didn't locate the rider, but it had Vermont plates on it. Also ran into a clean looking Ural Gear Up. Just may have to trade my '82 hack for one of those some day. On the final play day we hit Arches NP. Lots of dirt bikes in Moab. Would be a great place to get back to again and do some dirt, er...slick rock.

Does anybody have any recommendations for a good KTM Adventure certified shop up in the Spokane Area?

I am done with my last one and I don't plan on going back. I don't really want to drag the bike all the way to Seattle or Boise if I don't have too. There has to be somebody within 3 to 4 hours of Moscow/Pullman that knows what they are doing and are a trustworthy shop that does good work.

Try Dave Russell's European Motorcycles. My 990 is there now. Or, If you have a bit more time to wait then I know a independent mechanic that does excellent work.

Rooster Ride

Thinking I'm going to ride to breakfast at the Red Rooster in Reardon Saturday. Then backroad it somewhere to some other place. Maybe end up in frednecks for a late lunch. Going to try for 10 at the rooster if anyone wants to join, gonna be on the st1100 so no hardcore off roading. Just gonna explore and enjoy late season riding. Got the electric heaters, gloves and vest, all hooked up.

ST1100? New to you bike? When did you get that? It's going to get you in trouble. At least between you and Rick you guys will keep the nice police officers busy.

I'd go with for breakfast/lunch ride but I'm working today.

If you have any idea what time you'll be getting to Fredneck's post it and maybe someone will join you for lunch.

Have a good ride.

I will keep an eye out for your bike at Frednecks, if I see it, I'll stop in. Hell, I might even be there when you get there.
