Whatever you scout, make sure someone can come and get you when you break down






Good seeing you again

Looking forward to the rally!

Sounds like a plan. Thurs after 3 departure?

Hmmm, looking like a ride I wanna make. Been a long time since I rode in VT. I've got 4 weeks of PTO, why the hell not!!

In, 1 bike, 1 tent, meat for sure!

Was thinking about a SS up or back, but the riding is too pretty to just go blasting through on the Interstate system. So I'll take the long way

I'm fairly new to the small bike riding and was wondering if that stuff was going to be serious hardcore single track or moderate trail riding that would be ok for someone with only a couple of years experience but who is willing to try whatever is put in front of him, aka me...

recommendations?
Since I know you carry appropriate tools for trailside fixes, you're more than welcome to come along. If you did any of the technical sections at the Roaming Rally, you can likely handle whatever I put together. Some of the route will be two-track and jeep trails. Very little, if any true single-track. Some sections will certainly be challenging (ie loose rocky uphills) but nothing that requires A-level enduro racing skills (not that those would hurt though).

Naw, I won't be on the KTM, so breakdowns shouldn't be a concern. Had a good ride with you until I hit the no-go-no-more part.

I"m still in, but haven't gotten a yea or nay from the missus yet. She may visit some friends in Maine while I continue on to the Rock.

And BTW, mud is not necessarily single track. . .

Sounds very much like a "don't tell" invitation. If I can trust my little KLR to make it over there and back, I'll join. (permission from GMB needed, of course)

Have you figured out the reason for the short yet?

Any idea yet what the cost will be? Do we pay when we arrive? I am trying to get some friends to come and need to let them know.

Say ... aren't you the guy that rode the "easy" dual sport route with your "sportbike" the last time that Cromag was still in Maine?

I wasn't there for it, but I think the quote went something like "it's still a road ... it just has dirt on it".

But I may be mistaken ...

It has to go up some, but not significantly. $50, $40, $30. If we want T-shirts that will have to be added. I have tried to keep it so you can come on your ahem....errrr.....KLR....for a weekend on a C-note or less if you really wanted.

While on the topic...do we want to add t-shirts to the price? The arteest is thinking some composite drinking device too.

Talk amongst yourselves.
