I will feed you hooligans Thursday night (burgers and a side)and I may even burn some eggs bacon and tortilla Friday morning. We are also going to line up a porta john so you all do not fill my septic tank up!

I rounded up some wheels...

Had to make sure the gas tank was big enough to avoid that whole foot massage thing.

The noob killer isn't arse deep, it's like maybe 3" deep in most spots...

Probably a couple weeks away from being able to do that.


This year's is a different route (and direction) from the one I remember.

The sand section that year was on the bench shortly before the turnoff to Echo Park, and while attention getting... brief.
Plus, I headed back after Echo Park and never saw the north side of things.

I dumped it twice in the sand and the K60 was like a knife in it, completely worthless. If I was to bring the 990 it would be wearing a new TKC 80 or D606 on the front.

Agreed - I rode the K60s last year on a LOT of sand and the front tire was worse than worthless. It would find every rut deeper in the sand and follow it making me have to work harder than necessary to get through. I'm going with a TKC80 on the front this year.

I rode a ton of sand in Arizona last winter on D606's and they worked great, even after a couple thousand miles of shredding them. For knobbies, they also do great on the road, even in the twisties. That's what I'll be running this year.

TKC front and 908 rear is my preferred setup on the 950 fwiw.
