    In. Followed DP's thread last winter with great interest. We have a group planning to do the southeast lobe of the route September of this year.

    Perfect choice of bikes. The definition of why to own an Adventure and how to use it. I'm all eyes on this RR.
    Keep it going... Yeah!!!

    Hi All,

    thanks for tagging along on on the report.
    Thanks to Jeremy for the added pics.

    The trip occured 2011 Aug 21 to Sept 2. Did not get to it until now since winter is a good time for work on these.
    The weather during the trip was pretty good for the most part - it was a bit hot at times.
    DockingPilot made the trip later in September and caught some awesome views of the fall colors, but also saw a bit of frost at higher elevations.

    This was a perfect ride for the big Adventure bikes as you had wide open spaces where you could really let her rip.

    I plan to release more ride report once a week for each day of the trip so stay tuned.

    Also for those who are hare impaired here is a hint:

    Not gonna lie I can't see the hare even in your blow-up :D. Must explain my sucking at hunting.

    When do the Kabooms get some dust on them? Makes me nervous when DS bikes are too clean.
