    Since there are so many of us headed to the KTM Rally in Moab this weekend... perhaps this would be a good place to compile/share photos with eachother?

    CJRacer and I are on the road.. we avoided snow for the most part getting over the first range of mountains. We are in Steamboat Springs tonight.

    Here are a couple of photos from this afternoon:

    I noticed your bikes here in Steamboat on the way to work this morning. They looked a little cold and frosty (29 degrees out). KTM Adventures always jump out at me as I think I am the only local here with one. I thought about turning around and getting my bike and going with you. Unfortunately, work commitments will not allow it. Anyway, have a great ride and time in Moab. The weather looks like it will be great. I look forward to seeing everyone's photos.

    John: Do you know Graywolf? He has a 950/990 in Steamboat too :freaky

    We're sitting in the hotel room trying to will the frost off the seats :patch
    I think it is up to a balmy 30 degrees now! We'll ride dirt from here including that fun "african-esque bridge" I found.. and the Yampa Bench - camping in Dinosaur (Echo Park) tonight. We'll be in Moab late tomorrow.

    No I don't. I should try and meet up with him sometime. I am somewhat new to riding, and don't have anyone to ride with currently.

    Too bad I didn't know you were passing through...we could have grabbed a beer. Anyway, if in the future you need a riding buddy or need assistance in or near Steamboat, let me know.

    It looks like a great day to be out riding some dirt.

    Alright, back to work :cry

    Damn, I wish I had been able to go. Had reservations and everything, but life changes. I'd be hitting the road in about 5 hours. :cry
    Have fun out there!!

    Have fun in the Dinosaur area; one of my favorite places. You can get to isolation out there even on pavement. Pretty cool.

    I slabbed a 400+ mile day today.
    Took a few pics but the Internet service here in Chama, NM is too slooooow to upload them.
    Just another 230 miles tomorrow and I'll be in Moab!
    Hopefully the Mormons have internet service figured out better than Norteno Nuevo Mexicanos.

    Got one pic uploaded.

    Just got in... Room 106 if any of you guys see this :freaky

    Awesome day - 125 miles of absolute offroad desolation from Dinosaur south over the book cliffs to I70. At one point it was 25 miles of sand wash. :ricky
    Huge fun. 177 miles between gas availability :eek1

    Yesterday was incredible too.. 152 miles between gas - camped in Echo Park.

    pics to come.. I gotta go register.

    Ha!
    I was first in line for the demo rides.
    Already took the amazing wedgie machine (690 Duke) for a spin with the first group. 45 minutes of monkey butt fun.

    We're trying to find a parasitic drag that killed Craig's battery in Steamboat Tuesday night

    If you look closely at the photos you should notice something interesting about Craig's bike that has nothing to do with electricity :evil
