I'm gonna try to make this one with you guys.

I got the KTM back together today , rode 80 miles, and tore it back down to check it out.

Looking forward to riding some gravel roads this weekend.

By the looks of things it seems there is a pretty good size group going but I guess we'll know in the morning. Since there are a few people that are going to meet us along the way .... we all better be ready to throttle up at
8:00 on the button. I'm pumped and looking ready for a good day.. ..the forecast said there might be a few AM showers....that could be a good thing to settle the dust along the way...if all the people show up who have sent PM's and also acknowledged on this thread....we'll be making a dust storm....

I'm sure there will be a few that will want to run this at a flat tracking harescramble pace.....we'll need someone with a GPS with the route for these guys...unfortunately (or fortunately) that isn't me. Just don't eat all the sammiches when you get to Bixby.....Remember-if you want the actual Garmin file - send me a PM with your email and I'll send it right away.

See you in the morning!

Put a little detour down by the area near Potosi that I originally removed. I spoke with someone who is going tomorrow and told me the way through. This will be a little more fun. It will not matter if you use original file but we will go right on 185 west of Potosi instead of left....It will run right into the original route ....

Well, I got to Bixby at noon and no ADVriders in sight. I had my little sammich (no pic, sorrry) and went exploring. I went down the "Orange trail" but I didn't take any pics as it is pretty technical. I then went down an abandoned road that looked like this



Until it stopped at this:



While down this path, I blew the sole of my boot out:



And I was WAY down in the pawpaw patch:

I thought my baby thumper looked pretty cool in the thicket:



Heck of a trail down there:



Well, I thought I would go and find some glue for my boot. I was almost to Viburnum when I noticed that my tank bag was missing. So, back down the trail to try to find it. Down to the end and no fuggin' bag. Start back out and I see this:




Closer look:



Put the bag back on:



And back up the trail







About time I earned that sticker. It's not like I'm riding a sport bike in the fuggin' snow and ice.
