For those still not on the distro, Donk will be riding at 0900 on Thursday for a work day. If you don't happen to have day job, he's looking for help. He intends to re-route the trail around the downed tree.

The DR had an ADV sticker on the back and a ton of stickers on the front fender, a torn seat, and white plastics (blue handguards though). The Honda was pretty much stock except for an aluminum skidplate, handguards and bar risers. The Beta was an old red trials bike...something tells me it won't turn up unless someone finds it in a ditch.

I don't expect these to be found, but figured it couldn't hurt to put up notice.
Keep your eyes peeled!

BMW Motorrad GS Trophy 2014: The Qualifying Heats.

The GS Trophy, the legendary enduro adventure from BMW Motorrad, goes into its fourth round in 2014.

Adventure, fun, challenges, foreign cultures, camaraderie and plenty of riding fun: the GS Trophy is a unique motorcycling experience that you just can’t buy. It isn’t simply about speed and breaking records, but is concerned with ability, orientational skills and team spirit. The GS Trophy is not a race and yet it represents a great physical and psychological challenge to participants, who commonly refer to the event as the adventure of their lives.

As well as the spectacular stages, riders can expect several special tests in which they can prove their riding skills. But what counts more than anything is the riders’ sense of spirit, shared adventure, and exchanges with fellow enduro enthusiasts from around the world.

As with last year’s event, the fourth round will be taking participants into uncharted territory. We will be presenting more information on the venue and the individual qualifiers right here nearer the time.
Anyone going?

Alaska....

For you that may have been going....it's starting to look like Dorito and I won't be going to Alaska next year. As an alternative we are going to look at the TAT, or possibly just going out to Colorado/Wyoming and doing some riding.

This 90+ pages lists all OHV roads, seasonal closures, limited vehicle width roads. Thought others might find it useful too:

More stories and pictures from Gail

Looks like Gail finally met the man....sounds like he is getting better though. He has some nice pictures!

Met up with Montazuma today, and he was one pissed off Aztec. Spent a good part of the day apologizing. What makes me so angry is the fact, I didn't do anything to the bastard. No photo's.
