Spent the weekend looking over the 950. Valve check and prep for this weekends Hare Scramble race at Azzy April 24th. 62,000 miles and needed to shim out front cyl. intake valves. I needed to do the rear intake valves at 50,000. These are the only two shim changes I've even needed to do, everything back in spec.

Bike now has a slimmer "Rat Bike" look for bashing through the trees. I'll have to see if Bill can post some pics from his fancy camera of the weekend.

SUN, we had a track day and got a chance to get the nobbies back on and make sure everything is tight, getting ready for the RGN race season.

We had bikes ranging from XR50 on the mini flat track up to the 950 ADV's on the MX track/trails. Great weather and great times.

Great pics Bill. Thanks for adding.

Yep, those are your plastics. I needed a set to for some test fitting so I grabbed them. These looked better than my shiny set. One needed some soldering iron welding done, but it worked. I'll have the bike setup this weekend for the race so they will live for one more weekend before they head off to the prototype shop.

I've been running these for as long as the Teraflex. Not a DOT, but I've put 2200 miles on one and it held up well....
I just found this post & this link is no good.
What front tire is this ? I like it.

GBC Dirt Shark.

Maybe this link will last longer?

http://www.gbcmotorsports.com/products/dirt_shark.aspx

The side wall says "Sakura"

Seems like stores keep dropping or renaming this tire.

I continue to use this front tire for aggressive riding. When I first tried it they were about $35. Now I see they are around $50. Still a good deal. Just keep it aired up. I run it around 30psi +, no worries.

Friday morning, 9am, myself and 8 other riders headed out on a 1200+ mile loop of Wisconsin in 4 days. NO TRUCKs, TRAILERS or SUPPORT CREW. A true Dual sport ride. Freeway to ATV trails, Pavement to sugar sand and some water crossing thrown in for good fun.

Mostly KTM's but we allowed a few BMW's and a Husky along too, just to show them how well the "other" brand really works.

We had great weather. Sunny, blue skies and temps from 55-80. Couldn't be any better for riding in WI this time of year. Much better than last years fall ride when we had 4 days of 45 and rain. Wonderful group of riders from new to DS riding to seasoned vets. We had a great time enjoying some of Wisconsin's finest dirt.

Thanks to the riders that put up with me for the long weekend. You're all great riders and real troopers.

This wasn't an easy ride and almost every day we were on the bikes for 10-12hrs.

I arrived back home tonight around 7pm, and ready to call it a day.
Once I unload the bike, I'll get some pics up. We'll be working on getting all the groups pics and a report to follow. Should be a good one.

I will be on the road May 29th- June 14th. Road trip to San Diego. Starting w/ the trip to Tulsa for the Highland Motorcycle Open House, ending up at Road America for some 950 supermoto racing. I have a spot tracker link on my home page. Follow along as I travel across the county on the KTM 950 ADV. 6,000 mile loop expected.

http://share.findmespot.com/shared/f...FMzjpyder5AUHq

Maybe spot some LC8 riders along the way.
If you see me, send an email, I won't be on here to check PM's very often.

Headed to the Local Hill climb on sun. First time for me on the 950, only my second time trying it ever.

150 ft the first run.

Over the Top my second. My Time up was 20.5 sec. Fastest bike was about 8.5 sec. I have to work on that.

Lots of great pic posted by other ADVriders that showed up too.

wtg CJ for putting that ride over the top!!!! Full tanks kept that front end down for sure. j/k

Also thanks for keeping us on the bike so long every day on the T.W.A.T. ride. I like to ride.

The beginning. Southern most border of WI




How did this happen?



Excellent food pops up in the most remote places.



"Of course I knew this was a dead-end. Just look at the beautiful waterfall"



The northern most border with the big lake they call Gitche Gumee in the background.
