    John if Amy can get off on that Sat we should be good for the scouting trip. We would probably come down 285 and meet you in Poncha Springs or Salida. Tom

    working on trying to make this event. I'm considering a plated 390 husaberg, would that be a good choice and would it need additional fuel capacity? Could also do a KTM 690. Is a day enough to get used to the altitude? I remember feeling like crap on top of pikes peak at least initially.

    Berg would be a fun bike to have there, a MSR bottle or two in a back pack would be extra insurance for a long ride. I find 90-100 mile range is more than enough if you plan well. I'll be on a ktm 350exc with stock tank and don't plan on running out anywhere.
    Trick to altitude is lots of water and take it easy on the booze....for the first day or two :)

    thanks for the reply. I think I'll bring the 390. I'm going to start looking for lodging and expect I'll see you there.

    In. I can't request time off at work for another week and a half, but shouldn't be a problem. I'm going to be scouting the area all summer, just to make sure it is worth riding, you know. :lol3

    Even have my wife excited about it. Gonna call and make RV reservation today for the toy hauler. Both new off road riders, but we have all summer to practice. This will be our first ADV rally (but don't get any funny ideas. I was in a fraternity, so I know all about initiations, secret handshakes, rituals with farm animals and "lets just keep this between us brothers".. :huh

    I rode the Million dollar hwy last summer on my Tiger during a 3000 mile tour of Colorado. We threw in a few dirt road passes and that made me realize I would have much more fun on a 250lb bike. So I traded the Tiger in on a new 500EXC and have high hopes for this bike. Wife is on a CRF230M with 17" 244's. But who knows, maybe by then I will have her on a DRZ. We also may bring her WeeHawk for some road riding.

    So on that note. Can any of you locals recommend a D/S tire for the KTM? I was thinking about bringing two sets of tires for it, to do some paved twisties (don't have SUMO set up yet, but if I do, I will just bring that), but if a good d/s tire could handle the off road, I may just mount them and not worry about a full on knobby.

    Looking forward to it. :clap:clap:clap
