Thanks guys! Lots of fun riding with many of you again!


.....I'm still working my way home

Did 510 mile of "The Loneliest Highway in America" (US50) yesterday. Spent many many hours by myself on that road. KTM seemed to tolerate several loooooooooooong 7,000RPM stretches ( I'll let you figure out how fast that was)


Already did 270 miles this morning and have another 260 to go to get home! Think I will end up right around 4k miles for this trip

Cole, nice to meet you man. Good luck finding shit to eat the whole way back. Lemme know when you come to pick up the KLRs in LA, and we can hit some trails in So Cal.

Hey Big Wan,

it was great to see you and Bartek and Radek again.
Thanks for the cool video - you guys rock the mighty 990/950!
Maybe you and Radek should consider entering into the Olympics in the synchronized KTM Adventure jumping event!

Thanks to KTM and Giant Loop guys for making it a super weekend.

Mike Z

Here are some shots from our trip to the 2012 KTM Adventure Rider's Rally.

Day one quest to find some dirt...


Camping near Medicine Lake



Found Oregon, now looking for fuel and more dirt...



After reaching Bend (and acquiring some more supplies for the first-time bike campers) we decide to take in some training. Er, at least Richard did. Here Jimmy is teaching Richard where's a good spot to stop and send a text message (while Richard is busy setting his rear wheel parking brake)...



Day 2, we hunt for some trails (after having some GPS route issues). Richard's now feeling a little better about his parking brake skills.



And when ADV Riders stop to check out the scenery, you have to get your bike in the photo somehow or the picture's worthless...



Then we made it to the top of some hill to catch some more photos (and play in the dust).



Chip (Overdebars) checks out the view to the southwest...



Day 3 and we (most of us) survived the free drink ordeal at the KTM dinner. Ribs and tri-tip, and beer... Then off to Crater Lake












Then stopped for another night in the woods on our way to the coast.



Steve (StevefrmGV) checks out some fishing spots...



And we figure out where we were...



Chip enjoying the dust.



And we finally found the coast.



After some great seafood, we take some more photos before finding a place to camp...




Well... we thought about camping, but instead decided to find a shower and a warm bed.



Last photo before leaving the coast and b-lining it for home (and work).

That is, until Scott, I think, rolled up next to me while I was pinned in 6th gear, laughed, and casually dug a 2" deep trench away from me on hardpack gravel. Then Bartek (sp?) flew by, exhaust popping because he'd rolled OFF the throttle and was still going 25 mph faster than I was...

This and other episodes (hill-climbing narrow cinder pit climbs I can't even make it up) should have led me to question their judgement, but all thoughts of judgement were smashed when they decided to get "beer" for the evening. In Bend. .


Darryl winces in pain...

Unlike some of my compatriots here in Beervanna (you know who you are Jim) I will *never* turn down a cold beer, and we had a darned good evening. (Although there were more displays of questionable judgement, somebody beat me to the 4up hula hoop toss picture... )

I have a few more pics I could post but this darned "work" thing is getting in the way of life after playing hookie last week.

Radek - you live in BC right? And the China Hat powerline goes south.... ? :)
I would like to thank you for the kick ass ride on the Friday with all the riders involve i had a blast !!!! and will be there next year !!! Beer is the best reward after a great day riding !!!
