2013 Dinosaur Run.



2013 Dinosaur Run.


What is the Dinosaur Run?


It is a multi-day, big-bike-friendly, ego-free, self-sufficient-camping, run across northwest Colorado (including some Utah and maybe a little Wyoming)

We touch as little pavement as possible (i.e. not streetbike friendly) and we really end up in the middle of nowhere (so you need a reliable bike that is well prepared and maintained). You could ride a dirtbike but your arse will hurt. A KLR or a GS or a 950 Adventure is perfectly suited (which is what I designed The Run for )

What does self-sufficient mean?

If you get a flat.. you should be able to fix it...


If you blow a radiator hose... you should be able to fix it...


..and if you drop your bike, you should () be able to pick it up on your own...







...oh that reminds me... I need to order a spare fuel pump for my yearly Yamapa Bench swap out

Hey, I'm bringing all the petro/ people friendly high octane too. Do I have to carry tools and an air compressor also?
If the answer is "yes" then I suppose I will throw in some bacon and a skillet. As you know the KLR is do anything "SLOWLY"
overloaded two wheeled tractor. KYSHO.

Warning: overloaded KLRs have a bit of a history on this ride
...the good news was it only took a half mile hike through a sandwash and a few hours with two sheriff 4x4s too get him out to somewhere the ambulance could reach.
