Took the wifey for our first 2-up. She is so much happier with the 950, rather than the VStrom. The KTM actually has 2" more leg room and with the custom seat, she was comfy for the full, 2 hour ride. I just need to add a top box, so that she isn't freaked I will throw her off the back, which is always a possibility when 100 ponies kick in!!!!

This will be our ride for the SJ500!!!!!

Was this ever sent? Maybe I missed it.

Looking forward to this ride especially with riding season around the corner.

Cool picture. I'd have to walk away if I were there. Seeing that kind of stuff freaks me out. I'm looking forward to going to Moab next week to do some riding and mtn biking. It will be the shake down ride on my wr250r that I bought last fall.

Maybe the boys and I are crazy....but it isn't that bad to sit on that edge. It is kinda like sitting on a cement wall......just that there is over 1,000 ft vertical below. It is cool to look down.

So that everyone knows....there is nothing like this on the SJ500. The ride will have more stuff like this.....

Glenn Martin and I are stoked to ride with you guys in July.

We got out to Moab in 2009, and had no clue when we sat down for this pic that the ledge actually jutted out like it did. The guy taking the pic was getting a little queasy. . .





Will see you all for the SJ500 and RMAR!

I'm good as long as you send it before June 15th. I'd hate to miss out on a cool T-shirt.

Colorado Fires......

Mighty Rendezvous Crew!

I have received a handful of PM's and emails, expressing concerns about the fires that are burning in Colorado and if they will affect the 2013 RMAR Events and Rides.

While I cannot say, without a shadow of a doubt, we will not be affected, I can say that we are agile.

Remember back in 2011, when the 2nd Annual RMAR Rendezvous was scheduled for Sipapu, New Mexico and the fire restrictions forced us to move the event, only 24 days prior. Yes, it was a HUGE effort, but we pulled it off and ended up with a phenomenal Rendezvous, with about 150 riders attending, based out of Saguache, Colorado.

But, if there were an area that I would express little concern over, it is Silverton, Colorado in the San Juan Mountains. It is more likely that we will have to deal with afternoon showers and some wetness.....rather than fires, by the 3rd week in July. The monsoon will have kicked into full force.

You should also know that we have great flexibility in the Point to Point Routes, such as the San Juan 500. In the spirit of true adventure riding, we will go where we can and detour when we must. PtP routes are usually finalized within 2 weeks of the ride, adjusting for current conditions.

So what am I saying.....??? I am saying, don't worry, as we have it covered and we will keep you updated.

Yeah that's about how my wife feels about my new to me 950. "Are you going to put a box on the back like you had on the Vstrom?" I'll have to see what you come up with as I wasn't planning on it.

Really looking forward to meeting you all and desperately need an outing like this. Taking the 640 for this and probably the 950 for the Quien Sabe. Hoping my wrist heals for the San Juan as I had a blow out of the rear tire on a corner last weekend and it took me for a heck of a ride. All is good though as it could have been a lot worse than a swollen sprained wrist.

Look forward to meeting you all!!!!
