Well, not yet. But soon... which is why my wussy behind was home with the wife and doggies chillin. By 7am I had me a nice fire going. Well, raging, not going.

I did swap my new chain on my KX125 (parting out) onto the WR250. Fits' perfectly. 1 link less than the WR chain. Saved $80-90 !

I'll be ready to do a lot more DS rides with you guys on my KTM. The pics looked awesome.

And Omar, you aren't right... I'm sure of that now.

Jeff and Leo, real nice to meet you guys.
Nice meeting everyone! We'll have to do it again soon. When it's not quite so

No sh!t man. It was totally worth it, but the weather was pretty harsh.

pictures

Here's the scoop on my pictures. I got about twenty usable pics out of 22 shots. Because I was using my inexpensive camera, I am not as familiar with its operation and as a result, if I reduce the size, a lot of detail is lost. I am photoshop and photo linking challenged. I can send pics that are large files individually and it will take some time but I will get them out today.

I am glad everyone enjoyed themselves and I look forward to more rides soon.

Thanks to everyone for jumping in the river with me to retrieve my bike.

Nice to meet the two of you. I found my power cord so I'm ready for next weekend.

Keith, no sweat at all man. Plus, it gave me a chance to test out all my waterproof stuff - brand new boots - waterproof until the water goes over the top - then it's still waterproof - wouldn't let the water out

Snowy Mountain Pass pics

Posting a couple more pics, courtesy of SkylineKeith:

As we go up this one mountain, we see snow still on the ground.

We then spot this yeti brandishing a very large stick:


Then the yeti starts flogging Omar!

Eek

What I thought was cool about that snowy mountain was that we pulled over just where the snow cover started. As we went up the mountain, the snow cover increased and the gravel disappeared into snot slick mud. I'm glad we made it down the mountain without mishap.
