I don't know where the scouting thread is.















Windy
























I hope that builds your Rick's Rendezvous stoke level. Hopefully it will be a tad warmer when the time comes.

Big Bikes offroad!

OK, so I learned a few things yesterday: A route doesn't have to be long to be fun. Big bikes will go through my trail! When you bounce a GS onto a big rock the skid plate might not hold. The oil dumps fast out of the filter. I learned the best method to tow a big bike up and out of a trail. A GS will coast downhill through trails quite well.
All in all it was a great day yesterday! Thanks to Todd for getting me home to get my truck and trailer.
The best thing is having good friends to ride with!

Sounds like you had a great time

Adventure is where you find it, looking at these pictures I am getting more and more tempted to leave the FJR at home and bring the KTM

Exactly, you can ride the pavement anywhere. This is what your KTM was born for.

Hmmmm.

Looking at these pictures, I'm thinking I need to get off my ass and put a fan behind my radiator to help with slow speeds while waiting for the busted big bikes.

I resemble that remark.

Here is a pic of the fearless ride leader. That face says hes up to no good.
