Answer = Yes



Plus either bike will fit in with the crowd. There was a couple of both last year I believe. Personally, I'd take the 400, unless you wanna wander far and away.

If you bring the 950, I can show you where you can get it's low fender RIPPED off if it starts to snow...

Yes Ive seen your bike. I think Ill bring the 400.
I need to put some knobbies on the 950 and beat the crap out of it one of these days. Its still so damn pretty. Yours is a completely different kind of pretty.

Where does a BBP fit in?

Well, I hope there will be a few "adventure bikes" showing up in addition to mine! My BBP (big black pig) doesn't quite fit the definition of "dual sport."

That said, I'm really considering taking Friday off and zipping over for a day of riding. Not sure if I'd ride the Wee or truck the DR350 over. The Wee is set up to run my heated liner so I'm thinking that may be the way to go, then ride with the big boys.

So right now, I'm sitting on the fence and will have to see how the week plays out.

I vote 950 just so there will be more big bikes for me to ride with. Either bike will be fun though. Riding my aprilia to Boise today.

We'll bring an extra icechest for any riders that like cold stuff, and a classic two burner cookstove that riders can use.

So should I bring the Moto-Mule Music Maker this year?
Or are the river and campfire sounds enough?

When I picked the dates, I was just thinking Spring Break, as has been our tradition. I forgot about Easter.
I hope to see you Friday, at least.
