    Calling CJ!!!!

    Do you have a "Schedule of Events" for the pre-party as yet? Nothing too specific required, but when do you arrive, and what day is the first "Clinic".

    Thanks I'm just planning my routes for the week, a little. :rofl

    Hi All!

    We'll be there Tues night, no idea when. We'll be finishing up our own ride in.

    Plan to start around 9am Wed and Thurs. Door prizes around 4:30pm on Thurs. This event will not take anyone away for the KTM National Rally events. Sat- Beer Keg Party at Powercell camp site.

    Each day we are planning to post days events and times at the CJD TENT area for those at the campground the check out in case anything changes last minute.

    Working on details tonight as I fit this in between building bikes. The CJD Compound has been a busy place of change these last few weeks, so I'm sorry this info has been lacking. Only so much one body can handle before I expire.

    There will be Dual Sport related companies there to talk to any riders interested to give feedback or find out about new stuff that might help them in there travels. This list will be posted asap. Products talks/ Q&A Session, Demos. We are working to fill in any dead spots or time with Camp Tech and Bike stuff as need be.

    Be there at 9am Wed to start, break for lunch around noon. Start back up around 1pm. End around 5pm each day, with plenty of Misc stuff spilling into the evening for those wanting to hang out. We've never had an event that people have not picked up some info.

    This is an informal, grass roots work shop/get together that we are doing to help riders leave the trailer and hotels behind and get out and explore on motorcycles. This is not a school, what I offer is my personal info and what works for me, it may not be the best way or the only way but sharing ideas can help everyone gain skills faster with less of a learning curve. Most of this will be a short demo, then a Q/A session. Focusing on helping riders at the event to gain info/tips. This is not an event for me to work on your bike, but to help with travel/ gear/ bike prep tips as we go over our bikes after a several 1000 mile ride to the event.

    Hope to see you all there. :freaky

    That sounds interesting, zeegman. Doesn't that run through or near Canyon Lands? I've got a week on the return to get back to Norcal.

    hey CJ,
    Let me know if you need anything from a local standpoint. I can give you a hand with logistics. And/or provide a shipping point if needed.

    Yes,

    White Rim Trail runs through Canyonlands National park - very scenic and a nice day ride.

    If that doesnt tickle your fancy there are tons of cool trails near Moab.

    thanks Joe. :clap Please email me your contact info if that's ok, so I can add it to my phone and if anytime today or Wed would be good to call you.

    My wife will be heading out in the car and plan to be there around the 9-10th to help with setup and bring any SMALL extra supplies and prizes that might otherwise get damaged from rattling around on the bike on my trip out.

    Wed night 4-6pm (General Tech: On the trail bike look over and service check) we plan to have an Oil change Demo session for any of those that need this done. I will be doing this to my bike and we'll have an area set aside with tarps down on the ground to handle this. If anyone needs OIL or filters. We can bring this along. Please Email me by Aug 29th, so I can get this boxed for Katie.

    I want to get this done Wed, Sept 11 from 4-6pm before anyone heads out for dinner. This will also allow us to get this finished in time for everyone to ride on FRI at the KTM event.

    I'm working to get a semi final list of people coming to the event today so we can post a schedule. On Wed, Aug 28th I will post the time line we have at this moment. Please see us Sept 11th at the CJD tent setup area for current Day info.

    I will not be able to post any more info after thurs Aug 29th. I'm outa here!
