Maybe I will have to call in and pre-ride with you instead.

..You may want to consider bringing the WR.

I only say that because you say that you have not done a lot of offroading with the big bike, and I preride the routes because I am not exactly sure what I will find from year to year on seasonal use only roads.. Most times they are fine and passable with little issue, occasionally they are significantly washed out, and have not yet received maintanence/ grading.

Well, being that its going to end up about a 380 mile day for me, I am going to hammer it on the Tenere. Since its seasonal/ service roads, even if they are washed out some, I'm pretty confident I'll be okay. See you tomorrow! I'll try to show up around 0930 - 0945.

Big huge gigantic thanks to BK.RD.RNR for taking me along on his trial run for the upcoming event!!! Great guy and rider. Didn't even seem to mind waiting up for my beast of a bike, on Anakee tires!!! First time in 13,000 miles my Tenere finally decided to take a little nap. I was so proud!
Very much looking forward to the August event. Hope I can make it!

In Scudrunner's defense, it was a lot greasier than it looks in the picture.

Route 1 for 2013 is in the books!

I shortened one of my previous routes, and ended up finding a couple of cool new roads/ trails in the process. Some great views as well!

Looks like we'll have just over 200 miles of Catskill Mountain goodness, and before anyone asks, yes it will go by the ice cream place! (albeit near the end of the day).

Thanks for coming along Scudrunner, always nice to have a little company!

Unfortunately, I only took one picture, at the end of the day.



As always, I'm looking forward to August, I hope you are too!

By the way.

I would like to invite anyone else who intends to lead a ride at this event, to post up about it. This is an open format this year, and more routes mean more opportunities to meet like minded riders.

I know NYWolcott has posted up a sport bike ride, I don't know if his roster is full yet.

Is any one else planning to put together a route that would welcome other riders? Please let the masses know!

To me it seemed either lean, or ignition slightly off. Maybe even TPS out of synch... I don't know KTMs though so its pure speculation. Popped the cherry on the WR today with NateDog. Check out the pic on his thread

Group size - no more than 6 bikes.
Bike types - Sport bikes, sport tourers, GS types, Supemotos, sporty standards, etc. Sorry, but cruisers and big tourers would not be comfortable.
Gear- Full protective gear (full face helmets, leather or fabric protective riding suits, boots, gloves) No Levis, sneakers.
Tires - Good condition. Plan on 300-400 miles of fast riding, possibly more depending on the group.

I ride in a spirited, but not over-the-top manner. I cruise at anywhere up to 70 MPH (75 on your speedo 'cause its off by 10%). The NYSP gives you 15 over the limit before ticketing. Can't vouch for sheriffs or locals. I DO pass on the double yellow if conditions are comfortable. If this makes you nervous, don't join us.

General rules: Basically as stated in the old Motorcyclist article titled "The Pace" by NIck Ianatsh. NO racing. Smooth but quick.Stay in you lane (or consider it a crash). If you don't like to ride behind whoever's in front of you, reposition at a stop. You're responsible for the rider behind you. If you lose him, wait for him, etc. The next rider up should do the same for you. Regroup at all road changes.

If you're comfortable with all this, I'll lead you on some great twisty paved roads through several counties.

Ride is cancelled if it rains.

Of course, all this has to meet with Fran's approval.

EDIT---
Got Fran's approval.

Will do a sign-up post a couple weeks before the ride.
I'm planning this ride for SATURDAY, so be ready to ride at 9-9:30 am.
If anyone's heading north on Sunday, I can lead a ride up NY10 to Speculator to get you on your way.

OK - Respond and I'll put you on a list here.
