A comment from another member who had an informal ADV event in KS.

I did a weekend down there in '10, trying to emphasize (my mistake) bring your tent, and a dude shows up in a 2 million dollar coach and 20 ft trailer with several brand new farkeled out KTM's, new KTM suits and KTM running shoes and gawd knows what else. I'd never met him, he didn't do forums, I don't know how the fuck he learned of it. He rode with us, but split for his bus for a shower and ate dinner and blew off anything else to do with me. I was kinda surprised he wanted to get any dirt on his new KTM running shoes.*snip*There's no rulz or anything, come as you are, but I thought the gist of the weekend was completely lost on the guy.
"That guy" is everywhere, with every brand of bike, but I will concede more likely with the expensive ones.
Besides, the OP seems like a great guy and he rides a GS. He could have parked in my space anytime.
It is better to have less thunder in the mouth and more lightning in the hand.
