I was watching a video of someone putting a big bike (GS or maybe a Duke) through the paces - anyway this guy was tearing it up doing wheelies, stoppies, and awesome dirt riding...

Then he messed up and ripped off side bags windshield and about 4k worth of damage... and he looked at camera and said "And I dont have to pay for repairs"....

Different story when I drop my V in the gravel.... so I dont...Im a wuss

A BIG YES!

I would like to see this too.
Todd is telling us that new riders are buying these new machines and want to get their feet wet (gently,,,without tearing up high dollar body and motorcycle parts) exploring the possibilities of their new bikes.

This can be done and we can do it.

I'd pay admission to witness those fantasic riders that can make a GS scream and moan.

Kidding aside. Can do 2 separate rides for skill groups. If you get some of those rawhyde seniors they can do some crazy stuff on 1200s that would even make Billy think twice. At the overland expo this year they had a "rodeo" demo track setup that the rawhyde instructors rode with big whoops and some small jumps and they threw those things around like toys.

This a rawhyde event again or just BMW ralleye?

Fold Down Hiway Pegs

I am looking for a set of hiway pegs for my Vstrom... any one have any suggestions.

I assume they will mount to my engine guards...

Anyone?

Billy, go ahead and figure out the ride you want to do.
Vic is gonna help with a 4 lake/buncha bridges/twisty pavement ride for us.
Both rides will be advertised as such.

Event will be a win-win for what ever those riders want to do.

I got my little Hoosieberger back from R&R. Crazy-- it had two different length fork springs in the front-- one was a #46 and the other looked similar but no number. Got 42's in there now, and lowered the oil level. So we will start there and see how I like her.
(I have to get over the fact that some heathens took advantage my little cutie pie while she was indisposed. Scalawags!! )

I will be riding somewhere this weekend, probably wherever is the LEAST dusty, as no rain in the forecast for a while...

I might be able to squeeze a few hours in the morning for a ride as well.
Adjusted my valves, reset my susp to factory settings.
Plan on playing with the clickers from there. Yes... the sags are set, both rider and static.
