These will be my last current pictures for a while, we pack up tomorrow and head back to 8200' and snow .

Today started out on the 450, but 10 miles in blew the front tire then made the wife cry. No I didnt bitch at her- I had her follow me through some stuff that was a little over her head (too steep-too rough). So the day ended early with the thought of no spare tube with us now for 2 front tires. Back home by noon and she says to go ride the 990
Here are a couple of her (I know its not showing off my 990- YET)
doing good here

Not so good here - why dont women like their picture taken when they nap ?

Heres the 990 and a couple bonus pics-



Sink hole - actually a mine


These guys giving me the stink eye - just cuz I roosted em a little bit,




This was freaking steep and that 908 was not performing any magic here.

Thats Mexico in the back ground, Im about 4 miles from the border

The end : for a little while at least.

yikes, we will be in Pagosa by Wed afternoon , hope it melts. We have 40mph winds here today, made the decision to leave tomorrow afternoon after the winds subside- rather haul 42 feet of trailer in the cool of the night with less wind.

I know, huh?

But, you've gotta give him credit... he's done way more than just ride his GSs to Starbucks; and he's put way more miles on his bikes than Ewan ever did... all without a gigantic support team following him around.

Hmmm... I'm suddenly in the mood to read Roadshow again

Drive safe. The roads are crap right now. Warm snow.
Let's hook up for a ride once this melts!

you need to upload your pics to a photo hosting website like photobucket (free) or smugmug (helps support advrider) and then copy+paste the link for your pictures here in this thread. There is also an easy how-to here

New graphics for my 2011.

KTM 990 Adventure, New graphics!!
This was the last 2011 in stock. I sent my graphic designer sister some pics of ideas and placement and this is what my bike will be once they have been produced to fit.
