    That might have been there before WF. I seem to remember seeing it when I pulled in on Thursday.

    I'm pretty sure she found it along the trail somewhere.
    Nice seeing many of you again, and meeting the rest for the first time.

    Keep 'em rolling Andy, wherever you end up next.

    We did find that canteen, I almost stopped to pick it but because I thought dirtydoug dropped it in front of me. Adventure Girl snagged it off the trail after I went by. We didn't try the refreshment inside.:1drink

    I made it home without issue on the undersized rear tube. Thanks for all the help changing that.

    In a liquor fueled inspiration I stole some pictures of bikes. I was impressed, I think i had the only F800 at the party, while the quantity of KTM's made me think it was a Harly event.

    There were some shiny new models

    I used to own one like this. Mine was rarely this clean

    Why are Transalps either perfect showroom clean or RTW dirty?

    This is what a Tiger looks like after it's been flipped through the mud. If we ask nice maybe the video of that splash will appear.

    [​IMG]
    I wonder what this will look like in 20 years?

    A really big GS, for a big guy. Gotta love the painted wheels.

    [​IMG]
    there were so many KTM's they had their own corral

    Who says you can't take it with you. The Ratman will never be without a can opener.

    And speaking of can openers, just when I thought I'd seen it all.

    CACK appears.......

    I remember this happening, but didn't expect the aftermath to be so bad.


    This, on the other hand, I have no recollection of, but was expecting the aftermath to be a lot worse.

    Just got home last week. Was gone for 4 weeks so there was a lot to do when I got home.
    SO I know its a bit late perhaps but I did still wanted to share some of my pics from Westfest. Don't have a lot of time for commentary unfortunately but certainly welcome any other comments on the pics:freaky
    Also most especially want to thank Pablo for putting this on. Much appreciated. Hey we did your route to Brek & had a nice slide down the west side summit of Georgia Pass. It had just rained. WHEWWW!!!:eek1 Very Exciting. Oh & all loved those berms on the double track heading out from the ranch. Thanks for those routes Pablo:clap
