New arrival in SLC here and haven't had the chance for any dual sport rides yet. A few pages back one of you regulars mentioned the KTM rally in Bend. Anyone riding to this? Any interest?

Free beer!

Any SLC based utards have a rotor wrench and rotor puller to change out the dreaded doohickey on a KLR? Need to do two bikes, free beer (or root variety) in exchange for borrowing the tools...

^^^^^

vitster: the XR650R is a pig i can sort of throw, and i don't really like the B cuz i hit the hard stuff that's perfect for a 250, but there is the option of riding the road and then the pig digs trenches at 70 mph (wheel going 90)...


RM: Ktm rally aint down for us red riders, but if you orange-ists ever open up to others, I do have a video of a harley in Lockhart basin! feel the love! any bike is welcome!

Group hug?


I'd be riding a red one if they would just put fuel injection, hydraulic clutch, good brakes, plush suspension and lighten it up a few pounds...

I'd ride orange if you chumps would pass the hat around and sponsor me! "I have mediocre riding to offer along with duct tape, and excellent fire camp story telling ability" Come on, do i have to put this on Kickstarter?!

I'll chip in a bit just to pay for the leeker and camp tales, but I'm so cheap you'd still need a sugar daddy like Pluric to fill in the rest. I'd love to see your Kickstart story...

Monday or Tuesday would be great - thanks! What about some good root beer?

I can vouch for eight nights of that. You also forget, excellent skills at procuring a steady supply of whiskey.

Awww... I accept the label as long as it doesn't exclude me from finally getting another Honda when they finally make something worthwhile.

Planning to go walkabout through a variety of places en route to Bend. Just ordered me maps.

Actually....It's open to any flavor!

At the So Lake Tahoe Orange Adventure Fest that Trailtwister n I attended last year we rode with ...

- an F800 Beemer
- a highly modified XR650 Honda
- many orange things, most with Scorpion ATs mounted
- many "I just bought this & wanna see what it will do" riders

They really don't care what you ride, you just need to pay your entrance fee. & eat their steaks.

Most of the KTM sanctioned rides are more mild to appeal to the general population. We found a more hard core local to show us around. There will probably be one at Bend.

There was about 150 riders at Moab, 7 were from Utah. About 100 at So Lk Tahoe - "This ain't no Moab" was the reasoning.

KTM always brings their big rig & 3 Pro riders so you can "Ride with a pro" even if he doesn't know the trail.

They also provide FREE repairs & maintenance on your bike if you ask. Like a free FI map upgrade & filter wash that I obtained.

Plus lots of great stories of "You should have seen what we ran into on the way here..."
