I notice one of you was wearing the spot messenger SOS device if you would of pressed the relocate button I would of sent the troops to save you from that burger and put you 1/4 mile southeast to the Mill for real food I'm guessing it was closed?

Allright my turn. Keep in mind that all of these are screen shots lifted from video footage and I had a lot of dust on the lens at times so the color correction leaves a bit to be desired.

Following that 990 down the easy stuff


Blu Bird flying past... well the top half of him anyways...


Following Bill down the hill




Climbing up that gnarly hill on the other side...


More fun stuff... we'll re visit this spot in just a bit...


Catching up with some of the group...


Allright, roll call, who's still missing? Where's Bill? He was right behind me.


Let me try my psychic locating powers...


Bill, where are you? I don't see him... I can't hear him... Better go look...


There he is, taking a dirt nap. Crap, Bill are you all right? It kind of looks like you're stuck under the bike?


Surprise! Psyched you out!


Turns out every time he tried to pick the bike up, it rolled backwards down the hill so he was laying on the ground trying to grab for the shifter so he could get it in gear so it would stop rolling away on him.

Now if it would just start back up, we'd be in business.


That's all I've got. The lens was too dirty to salvage anything else.

Mr Klod those were great pictures. By the way, in the photo, I was just adjusting my two glass eyes. My psychic locating powers were not working well that day. Glad we found Bill.

By the way concerning my flat front tire, I patched a very small pin hole flat when I got home. Had I had slime in the tire or had some with me I am pretty sure it would have sealed it up and let me continue my ride, lesson learned. I have used it in my mountain bike with a lot of success. There is 8oz in it now and just got back from a 40 min test ride, all is well.

Nwemerys, thank you, and enjoyed your company let me know whenever you are planning to ride, will join if I can.

Thanks, Rob

Would love to New but I will have a tough time keeping up with you...you wonder how that tiny pinhole got there? It was planted to try and slow you down to my speed. Great riding with you too.

Looks like you all had a great ride. I am glad to see Bill make it up to CK the back way, I knew you could do it.

You wouldn't know what real food was even if it bit you on the ass..............

The Mill is pretty good by the way, so the next ride up you will have to check it out.

What are you going to do with the 250? Any interest in selling it......

I bet the new bike is a KTM690..........what do I win if it is?
Yes, you are the big winner!
So, since we spoke last... The 2008 690 I bought is for sale.
http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=954930

Why? Well, I ended up buying another one after meeting up with a guy to buy some parts



These bikes are amazing compared to my klr. 100 pounds lighter, crazy suspension, fuel injected, 300 mile range with that safari tank. Came with a tubeless system and new tires.

Damn thing wants to be a unicycle with as much as it lofts the front wheel. The power is a little scary, but in a good way . Took a little shake down ride today to get back in the action. Can't ride by myself offroad yet since my ribs aren't strong enough to lift this beast when I drop it . Maybe in a few weeks.

It was great seeing some old faces and meeting so many new ones.

Until next time

DK is a good guy to have along. He sure can ride the KLR like a small dirt bike.

Is this a paid position?
Can I use "ADV Ambassador Nominee" in my custom user title instead of "Beastly Adventurer"?
Nah, really guys, I'm just an old grouch who gets to help out every once in a while!
