RR: redacted nipples

We killed 800 miles starting Friday early evening returning this afternoon. Pics to come.

2 KTM's didn't make it to the starting line, 2 more didn't finish, but 2 did. All of the Honda's finished just fine. Thrills spills and a bit of road rash, and I must say that we've hammered out a new adventure route that was mostly new to me.

Andre can post the pic of the RR title.

Ha, nice! I'm not a Starbucks fan so...

I hope my trusty ole GS can get the job done without issues. Just rolled 75k and I am guessing that most will be on the newer 800 GS.

I've got some new tread, ready to roll.

I'm headed down to compete and would be interested in meeting up with others from Utah.

I'm departing SLC Thursday morning at 6AM. Slabbing it to Moab...trail riding after lunch. When are you planning to leave for Moab?

I'm leaving Thursday around noon. I hope to get there in time for dinner and to set a tent up. Then they are doing a walk though/intro to the event at 7. I think I may have communicated with you via email...

After Fridays Skyline Drive ride I found this nice flat spot on the rear wheel.
I give up, this would be the fourth time I've sent the wheels to Woody's to
have them straightened out. I called them and am going to try some special
rim and spoke job set up they have for the Tenere. $650 for the rear.
I've spent more than that in shipping and repair costs so what have I got
to lose?

Yeah mine is fairly farkle free. I hope she'll make it to Alaska next year. I had a fuel pump go out this summer on a trip and that sucked bad: Trip Report Here double moo had his final drive go on same trip...

We like to get out and ride. Canada/West Coast, Etc ride last year in 9 days... Awesome trip!
