Hehe - yes, exactly the same rock, same spot. You can spot this road driving east on Hwy 22 thru Gates, specially if there's snow on it. Looks waaaay high up there :)

Just made my KTM 200 99% street legal, it already had a headlight, rear & brake light and a rear mirror, just needed turners and a horn (to toot at neighbors *grins*) The Tusk system was half the price of anything else I could find and is powered by it's own nicad battery - no need to splice in to the bike's wiring. I figure I might use the turners/horn once a month, so the little battery should be fine :) Oh and the clear plastic on the tail is an anti-scuff thing that Giant Loop sells along with it's excellent saddlebags. (ADV sticker pr0n too *grins*)
Now, all that being said, this bike really, REALLY sucks on the pavement, with the gearing and the rim locks, 45 mph is as fast as a rational person might wanna go, it's basically a dirtbike. Luckily for me, the small amount of pavement I ride just connects the fun....

Anyone near Salem doing a ride this weekend? I've got a new bike I'm looking to put some miles on if the carb re-build works out tonight.

Sorry, I'm a home boy this weekend.

Wish I had seen this thread sooner. I'm in Salem and was looking for an excuse to go ride. Instead I worked on two of my bikes and pretty much veg'd out. This coming weekend is looking like rain (grrr). The one after is 4th of July weekend... I'm going to ride OBDR Route 4.

I found some awesome gravel above Detroit and ended up coming out in Estacada.

It was a good first time out for the NIB 640. It was about 250 miles by the end of the day.

Anyone claim this KTM plastic, we found it way off the grid between Evans & Ogle Mtn north of Elkhorn. The mounting tabs are all busted off.........
