2015 COBDR + UTBDR who wants to go?

Sorry if this isn't the correct forum for this post but it sees like a good place to start.

I'm planning to ride both the COBDR and UTBDR in September and I'm looking for 1-3 additional people. Here are a few comments on the type of person that I'm looking for:

1 - Must have a big bike. I'm on a KTM 1190R. I would prefer someone with a KTM 1190R but will also partner up with a 1200GS. Nothing against smaller bikes but let's face it I wouldn't be able to keep up with you. It is a totally different ride.

2 - Must be able to ride for 6 hours (not counting breaks).

3 -

4 - Mature person. I'm 51.

5 - Must like camping. Yes we will stay in hotels too.

6 - I'm the type that likes to wake up and get moving.

7 - Must be reasonably fit. This will be a difficult ride.

8 - Must be skilled at riding dirt / sand. COBDR seems pretty easy but the UTBDR looks like some skills will be needed.

9 - This will require 2 weeks. 10 days riding 4 days driving.



I'm in Tampa Florida but if your elsewhere that is fine. I'm planning to drive to CO trailering the bikes. I can stop and pick you up along the way.

I have the trip pretty much laid out already and will share the details later. I happy to follow or lead.

Two weeks with anyone is a long time so I'm just trying to find people that will get along. If you have ever been on multi-day group trips you know what I'm talking about.




PM me your real email address I you are interested.

Thanks.

DeWayne Hasty

Edit - OK, I removed the "no drinking to much" from the list as this seems to be a deal breaker for everyone :)

Cool! but that is kind of a tough list dude.
Your taker list might be very small.

#3 is 1 beer or so only for most, so you are basically are saying no drinking.
Man, i'm part of the BDRs and I even would not want to go on that trip.
The BDR group likes to drink.

Ever think about removing rule #1? The restrictions you put regarding bikes seems a little too much. So many great people and riders in this adv community and you put on restrictions.

This sounds like the ride I have been thinking about for September.
Anybody got a spare 1190 sitting around I can borrow?
