2010 KTM Moab Rally: Post your pics!

Since there are so many of us headed to the KTM Rally in Moab this weekend... perhaps this would be a good place to compile/share photos with eachother?

CJRacer and I are on the road.. we avoided snow for the most part getting over the first range of mountains. We are in Steamboat Springs tonight.

Here are a couple of photos from this afternoon:

I noticed your bikes here in Steamboat on the way to work this morning. They looked a little cold and frosty (29 degrees out). KTM Adventures always jump out at me as I think I am the only local here with one. I thought about turning around and getting my bike and going with you. Unfortunately, work commitments will not allow it. Anyway, have a great ride and time in Moab. The weather looks like it will be great. I look forward to seeing everyone's photos.

John: Do you know Graywolf? He has a 950/990 in Steamboat too

We're sitting in the hotel room trying to will the frost off the seats
I think it is up to a balmy 30 degrees now! We'll ride dirt from here including that fun "african-esque bridge" I found.. and the Yampa Bench - camping in Dinosaur (Echo Park) tonight. We'll be in Moab late tomorrow.

No I don't. I should try and meet up with him sometime. I am somewhat new to riding, and don't have anyone to ride with currently.

Too bad I didn't know you were passing through...we could have grabbed a beer. Anyway, if in the future you need a riding buddy or need assistance in or near Steamboat, let me know.

It looks like a great day to be out riding some dirt.

Alright, back to work

Damn, I wish I had been able to go. Had reservations and everything, but life changes. I'd be hitting the road in about 5 hours.
Have fun out there!!

Have fun in the Dinosaur area; one of my favorite places. You can get to isolation out there even on pavement. Pretty cool.

I slabbed a 400+ mile day today.
Took a few pics but the Internet service here in Chama, NM is too slooooow to upload them.
Just another 230 miles tomorrow and I'll be in Moab!
Hopefully the Mormons have internet service figured out better than Norteno Nuevo Mexicanos.

Got one pic uploaded.
