Nope, I'm MrTwisty on GOR, but I don't post there much.
Oh ok. At least 3 Georgia boys then! Saw that Rush posted on GOR about taking a super T out there and just assumed. I am RTF on there. I will be the the freakishly tall guy on a Husaberg. Hope to be able to meet y'all there.
To the rest, sorry for the hijack!
See ya there!
Uh, oh ! I'm so busted I'm watching this thread too, but the saying "There's never enough time or $$ " fits here....
I have time,,, but no $$
I love Silverton, RMAR, and riding Colorado, but it's just not in the cards this year..
And it's too bad the fires are so bad. My first night out last year was near South Fork. Tried to sleep under the stars and it rained so hard had to do an emergency tent erection... :eek1
Oh wait, that didn't come out right !
Yep, you too Todd!
Hoping the fires stay away, sparing the homes and the forests.
Anybody coming up from El Paso,TX Las Cruces/NM area...????
Yes, but I'm headed out a week early, taking the long way around - and truckin' it.
Are you coming? We will be there with ALL of the bikes!
Looking forward to coming out there to this Rally and riding ---I know that there is 2 of us coming from Mississippi and we can't wait
Frau Brueller is getting impatient and snorting a lot
I am thinking the same...perhaps not a whole week,but close.
Ok that settles it...... Pencil whipping time...... Hope I can get the Rekluse back in......
In as well. Registered, and will be in the RMRV park from 23-30, bringing these two humble mosquito's.....
Just to verify this..... I have asked several people this, and are not getting a consistent answer. Regarding the OHV sticker. If you have a plated ( street legal) bike, and are traveling say the alpine loop on designated roads. Do you still need the permit. An email to the CO dmv seems to indicate that it is not, as long as you are on a state designated road. On say the Hermosa trail, yes it is needed.....???? I have found that through out the years, even the authority cannot sometimes agree...... :)
Just a THUMBS UP to
For donating two complete sets of bags and racks
I plan to bring a DR 200 for this rally. I have fair amount of off road experience; I do alot of single track with lots of sand and roots, but I don't have much mountain climbing and rocky experience. The DR is slow, like 12 horse power. That's fine with me; this trip is for relax and take it easy and see Colorado. I've never been there.
If this rally is anything like what we got here in Texas, I'll be riding solo because the 200 won't be able to keep up with anybody on the highway. Are the trails/roads well marked and easy to find for someone never been there before?
I have a GPS, and will bring lots of paper maps. I plan to get a SPOT also if I can't find any slow people to ride with. I also plan to get saddle bags, so I can carry a tent and lots of survival gears, just in case, I get stranded out there.
A DR200 can be made very happy around Silverton!!
The only thing holding back the DR 200 will be air, if it feels really underpowered remove air box cover/door. My wife rides her XT 225 over all the passes and it does just fine...after we added 2 one inch holes to air box panel.
First off it's not a race. If we head out to the same area I'm not leaving anyone I'm with behind. Riding in groups is smart even if you have a SPOT, PLB or the ability to hike out. Because if you don't come back and someone says hey Bob is not back...you will be looked for.
Although we are not leading rides, I'm sure people will tag along and any of the people I have ridden with at RMAR's not one of them would leave you, or just keep going.
However with that said its smart to have a GPS and maps, its smart to have a SPOT type device or a PLB. It's also smart to leave an idea of where you are going with someone at camp, whether that be me or someone this is especially true if you do plan to ride alone. I would hate to find out packing up Sunday to leave that hey anyone seen Bob his tent looks untouched and no bike has been around and get a bunch of shrugs from people...THEN WHAT DO WE DO? I know its hard for Adventure riders to stay to a route...but at least with an idea, maybe even if you also said "man I love mines" and we know you were out in a certain area we could check out structures in that area.
So short answer YES your bike is capable.
I just don't want to ruin anybody's day because they waste their time waiting on me or because my bike can't make it over the mountain. I know people make alot of effort to get there to ride. Don't want to sit around waiting for the slow guy.
Without turning this into a jetting thread, pm me if you want more info on the 2se. We have one that is rejetted, piped, and open intake.....
As others have said, you will not be left behind. Ever.
Plus, there will be many bikes around, if you'd like to try something of mine, you are more than welcome to.
It is an awesome event. Heck, we can maybe even squeeze another 2 or 3 ponies out of that 200 for a 25% increase!
