I do like that idea...especially because the few hotels that will need reservations will be earlier and less time for it to go sideways.

Hello

Hello Bruce and Dana,

I was the guy on the X Country at Morton's off road ride a couple of weeks ago.

Any room for another rider on your trip? I did the trans lab a couple of years ago on my 1200gs and La Paz to Ushuaia a year ago on a 650gs so I'm really good at fixing flats. I won't be offended if you say bugger off but thought I'd express interest. Just returned from the RA rally and thinking about the MOA rally as this is a slow summer at work.

I live in Rockville during the week and in Hollywood on the weekends (mostly).

Keith

You know I hate you now? Never, ever throw a leg over something you can't/shouldn't buy

Look what I picked up last weekend!

All kidding aside, I did enjoy riding with you at Morton's. From watching you build the ramp jump, to walking to mud crossing, it was good fun.

I'll let Blaster and Lakota chime in on their thoughts for the trip..

Keith....since you were willing to roost me right after we met I figure the least I could do is have you along on the trip, welcome aboard!!!

Marty....we should probably get together soon to work details and route stuff, time is ticking away.

Wow. Sounds excellent

Thanks for the invite Bruce!

Are your colleagues all on board? Don't want to crash anyone's party.

650 or 1200? 650 or 1200?
the 650 has new tkc80s......
would need new tkc80s on the 1200......

Sunday works for me. Unless my SO encourages me to ride to the MOA in Salem.....
