We'll strap my 6 gal reserve/aux tank to the back of it, and run a secondary line to it. He'll be able to got 150 miles, and ride a wheelie for the entirety (sp?) of it.

I'm still up in the air on this one. We canceled our trip out of town due to daughter and wife being under the weather. But, being that my wife is sick I'm a little hesitent to tell her I'm going to be gone all day.

Secondly I have been back and forth as to which bike to bring then I thought about it last night.. my wifes bike !!!! It's a Suzukie DR125SE the mini bike of dual sports. It has more than enough range and is light enough I can pick it up without any problems. Only downside I can think of is that at it's lack of power and current gearing top speed is 50 MPH not sure if I would be holding anybody up. Also, the tires on it are the original stock deathwings which are not my first choice for a lot of sand wash
riding.

I'll be checking in later to let you know if I'm going or not.

You won't be holding anyone up. I think I'm taking the KLR, so I'll be running heavy anyway.

From the Back

The ride went very well. RWC and AllGoNoShow took photo's. This ride had a little bit of everything. I was hoping RWC would do a ride report and AllGo chime in with his photo's. Guess they had to milk goats or something.
Would have been a great trip with your new girl.

Ya, ya...

I'll get the pics downloaded, and I'll post them here tonight... after the Bronco game, of course.

11/01/07 Ride

Heading North and I are going to head out to Pickle Butte for a couple of hours after work.

We'll meet up around 4:30 or so, and ride for a couple hours until the sun sets.

This is less of a 'group ride', and more of a "I'll keep an eye on everyone, so make sure nobody went over thier handle bars and needs to be life-flighted out". So, it's just an opportunity to increase your skill level in the whoops, sand, etc... while knowing there are other riders near in case you're in trouble.

Pickle Butte is about 10 miles out of Nampa. Take the Highway going out 12th Ave, and turn Right (west) on Missouri Rd. Take is all the way to the butte - you can't miss it.

I'm in! I wanted to hit Hemingway the last two weekends with you guys, but had scheduling issues. I'm off work at 4:00 so this will work great for me.

Cool.

If you haven't been to Pickle Butte before, it's more of a place to hone your skills, rather than adventure touring. There's deep sand, whoops, hill climbs... etc. So, if' you're on the KLR, ride as light as you can, and if you have the ability, ride with a couple gallons or less in the tank and you'll feel lighter (because you'll be missing 25 lbs of fuel up high).

PM me if you need directions.
