Sure, waited till I had to leave to test out my on-the-fly carb vent upgrade to take a picture. I know us NJ guys are ugly but how often am I gonna get to do some good dual sport riding with some good people 1000 miles from home.

Seriously, it was a great time (after walmart saved my cold bones) and I really hope we can get a good weekend of riding in two weeks.

-Keith

PS, Anyone of you guys ever come east, look me up for a ride!

Flashstromer, let me know when you're going, I can help with the heavy lifting around the fire!

I'm drooling reading about these rides within 4 hours of home, gotta make it down there soon...

I'm about the same distance, but what is four hours of back road riding...oh wait...that's right you don't have a couch...I mean comfortable seat. Have you done much ADVtype riding on that new 400? I did not get to test it out. You do know that we had our eye on the 400 before someone offered up the 200

And here is Keith returning from his test run. Enjoy your time with your family next weekend. Hopefully we will have something fun to do in two weeks. Ken

If he's got a 400 that's great.....mine's been in all kinds of conditions....here's a shot of my bike when we went down to the Arkansas TAT last month..1000 miles in 3 days..the guys were thinkin' I brought too much stuff....

I absolutely have to go with you guys the next time there's a ride but being a total newb, I'm a little intimidated. Any recommendations to get acclimated to your type of ride?

Follow Buzzez around on his next gravel run.... You will be assimilated.

Actually there are riders at all levels...fast guys, well ....go fast....the more cautious types play sweeper.....depending on who goes on that particular ride...sometimes that's me....

Feel free to come on the next ride....

I would like to try and join you guys for one of these rides as well, but I notice most are on lighter thumpers, not pig GS's like mine. Not sure you would have the patience for me, as my experience off road is limited to recent rides on gravel close to home, and some experience 30 yrs ago (that probably doesn't count) on a little Yamaha 125 enduro.

I'm considering at least mounting knobs on the GS instead of the skittish Tourances, but I sure like a spirited ride on pavement as well! Anyway, I'll keep monitoring this thread and hope to someday catch up with few of you.

Sure enjoy the ride reports ... keep 'em coming!

We rode in Potosi 2 weeks ago and there were 3 GS's.....honz was leading that ride on his. I have also been on other rides following Buzzez on his, where once he was riding 2 up with his GF. ....I never see them, not even tail lights until they stop....

They ride these on gravel roads like flat tracking dirt bikes.

Yes, I saw that thread and was thinking about trying to make that one too. Honz sold me the RT I had. I've had the GS by his shop last year and he'd asked me to go along then, just couldn't make it fit the schedule.

Sooner or later I'll make one and I'm sure you guys will get some good laughs at my expense, unless of course, I can keep it upright the entire time!
