Tough go today.

All right, I do here and now concede to Aquanout’s KTM950A. Had the fortune of testing riding it today and it is dialed in to perfection. Unfortunately he knows how to ride it also. I on the other hand had a tough go of it.

Great riding with you guys today (Aquanout and Adam with his nice new WR250R). Next time I bring the 400.

It was fun riding with wonderful challenges

Stayed on the dirt road system up to the right off of Exit 38 on Homstead Valley Rd. Great challenges with parts of it very rocky and loose. Up in the higher elevations they convert to thin, steep, loose, rocky 4x4 roads.

I had a few failures and events compared to the KTM & WR on this ride Yes I even needed the KTM dude to help push me out of a mess. Will share more at CB Thursday with a big beer in front of me. Here is a few pics from Adam

This sounds like a good story. The pics looked great until the jeep entered the scene...

But I will have to wait to hear the story, I will be up north of Leavenworth Thursday, helping Mr. Hyde and crew.

Looking forward to my next CB visit, because I will have some new gear to show off. Also, really excited to try out my new shocks. Hopefully I will have some time to install them Sunday.

Yeah I agonized for the better part of a week, researching shocks. I talked to Ted Porter, and he had me sold on Wilbers, but couldn't stomach the $$. So I went in search of used.

I found a lightly used, recently rebuilt, set of top of the line HyperPro 3D units. From ztrab, a great guy in AZ.

Install comensing now.

Sweeeet hyperpro product

Can't wait to hear your reaction on the performance. Was hoping to meet and talk to some one with the hyperpro products. Hopefully you will make the CB meetup

Well, the Germania turnout was groovy. Good times lads. And Im not going to bring up the mech issues, flats, Jeeps, Sleepers, projectile directional issues, and any other proclivities that said big bores may have had, promised I would go easy. Cant wait to race a DR400. I think scoolin a Dr. will be fun. Yammis, hmmm, Ill have to look closer at my 200 twin. ;-)

Just got back from a short test ride on the GS w/ the new suspension. Of course it is much better! I do feel some jolts being transmitted. But will hold off, until after this wknd in the dirt, before I start spinin clickers.

Like I said I will be a no show this week. As I will be helping out at the BMW rally near Leavenworth.

It looks like you guys had a fun ride. I had a great 4 days of riding in Canada. While going through the Cascades I had a mixture of rain and SNOW (WTF) . On Saturday temps were in the high 80's. It was also raining deers along the way. Lots of dirt riding. I can't wait for next year.

SNOW



The line up


The unorganized side - There was a total of 50 riders


Dirt



Which way to go - It is all good.



The group I rode with most of the time.

Handles so much better on and off road then my stock shocks ever did. I am happy with my purchase.

------------------HUMP DAY---------------------------

Seems like a lot has happen over the last week. So tomorrow there should be lots to talk about.

As some of you know I always have fun crossing the border into Canada. This time as soon as I pulled up to the booth he gets out of booth and waves me forward. He starts asking question before I can get me helmet off. So I get my helmet off and then hand him my ID. The first question out of his mouth is do you have finger prints on file? Second question is have we done a background check on you before? So now I know the problem with with my bike (lic. plate) because he did not scan my ID. So I think it is time to get a new bike.

Looks like the weather is going to be nice tomorrow. I might try to get to CBs early tomorrow to grab a table outside in the back.

See you all tomorrow for BEER and story time.

CHEERS

Drew
