There's your problem. Actually 3 out of 4 look fine. Should knock that 525 down to about a 394.

I have a room with 2 beds booked for Sat and Sunday night at the Country Lodge. If someone is interested in sharing the cost they are welcome to the other bed. Please, no snoring. I'm married and not on the DL. (Just in case you think you're gonna get some broke back mountain action)

Yeah, I was planning on it before this happened. Now I will have a new top end fresh and pretty for the next owner. I'll probably finish the season on it, but the next generation is calling my name.

The spare room will be taken at our place, but you are more than welcome to the couch or any floor space you can find.
I thought you had a spare head sitting on the bench? Wait, is that on missing a valve too? Those orange bikes are bullet-proof aren't they.

I'll have to post a pic of the current state of my bike soon. I might be borrowing a bike for the ride. Anyone else have a 950 I could use?

Too much HP - a problem DRs will never have.

Funny thing is, that was a Kibblewhite valve that failed, not a KTM valve.

No family this year. They are in New Zealand until July 1. I've been a bachelor since April 18. Close to 2,000 miles on the bike already this season. I was gonna sleep in my truck dirt bag style. Then I decided that a shower and a real bed after that long a ride is gonna feel good.

On another note, I really hope the fire by Wilkerson Pass gets under control.

Thanks for the offer for some floor space, guys. Has there been a GPS track sent out for this ride yet?
Just want to be prepared.

I've promised Bobby alternative set of tracks so he can parallel us, but there won't be an official published route this year. I know the route I'm going to take, but things have been so hectic that I won't be able to document it before the ride.

Honestly, publishing the route beforehand has gotten us in trouble in the past. Unlike the MonkeyButt, there are hundreds of different option along the way and I know most of them pretty well so sometimes I turn in a different direction than my tracks say because I've forgotten what I recorded and both options go to the same place. Then someone comes along who has the GPS tracks and they go in the other direction and others follow. We have enough challenges along the way; we don't need lost riders.

If you could put tracks up after the fact, that'd be great. I'm not going to be able to participate in this year's BreckTrek due to work and injuries, but I'd love to take a weekend and ride the route at a slower pace sometime.
