Well Lakota, you've been back for 70 mins. How the Void Rally treat you?

Was out if F-burg this afternoon...long distance bikes all over the place...particularly liked the one with a small keg as a back bumper...hoping it was an aux fuel tank for the bike and not the rider

Actually it was the Void rally that Lakota and his daughter were participating in, EOD3 was going to this as welll to get his feet wet but his run with a log and his ribs made a bit less possible...maybe next year dude!

Looking to see if the budget will support it...

I tend to believe that all bikes could use one and so far the Husky needs one the most since it's got no real mass to push through the external inputs. I haven't ever heard anyone say "God I wished I hadn't put a steering stab on". The Husky and the DRZ will be getting one next year, it's one of those things you say yourself I could have rode that....or that...or that but at the end of the day you are going I still got some left and could keep riding that what I really like about them oh and the shoulders don't hurt either.

I thought this tidbit was interesting:

Quote:
We rode a little over 2000 miles with about 40% on gravel or hard-pack dirt.The paved 60% was via Route 1, commonly referred to as the Ring Road as it takes an 850-mile circuit around the island and is generally close to the coast.
Quote:
There is but one motorcycle dealer in the country, Reykjavik Motor Center. It has a 50-bike rental fleet of BMW and Triumph dual-sport bikes under the aegis of its partner company, Biking Viking.
Quote:
Of special interest to adventure riders is a system of utility service roads into the desolate Interior Highlands, which is an arid, unpopulated plateau, consisting of rocks, bigger rocks, the occasional glacier, and ice-cold streams fed by glacier melt. These so-called F-Roads (rough trails in truth) are restricted to 4WD utility trucks and adventure-crazed motorcyclists. Caution is advised when riding F-Roads, as they may provide much more technical riding than what you are used to. Loose gravel and sand, rocks big as bowling balls, and deep ruts are the norm. Water crossings are numerous as there are zero bridges in the Interior Highlands. Our tour made only occasional (and optional) use of F-roads.
Sounds like might be a somewhat easier trip to give a go unescorted, if you could figure out the F-road thingy.

Since I continue to be the guy who doesn't know what he is doing but hasn't died yet (God does have a sense of humor) I should take your advice... or buy another cat but the stabilizer seems cheaper. I'll get it and one day Garrett or you can show me how easy it is to install
