    Each week on Monday @7PM, riders from the SK dual sport club meet at the Tim's at 8th and Cumberland for a ride. If you guys want to come for a ride, all are welcome!

    I did a ride up to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska last year at this time. Beautiful country up there. Once the North gets in your blood, it is tough to shake.

    There had been some chatter about some Saskatoon guys maybe doing a ride out around Diefenbaker at some point. If that comes together, I'd likely make the ride up from Regina to join up.

    Diefenbaker lake,.... sounds like it would be a nice ride. Pudhoe Bay is on my bucket list of places I want to go. Because of that, I have been following dmh65 for some time. He stopped at my place a few days ago, checkout page 14...

    I haven't read that RR yet, but I will be now.

    I know there are plenty of incredible rides to do in the world, but for me, doing the Prudhoe Bay ride was like climb Mt. Everest. I doubt I will ever top that ride in my life. Maybe when I retire I will do the Tierra del Fuego ride, but that is a long way off yet. My favorite parts of that trip was the Top of the World Highway (on the Canadian side) and going over the Atigun Pass at midnight, in the blazing sun and being in total awe of just how gigantic everything was and how small I felt. I read lots of RRs before I left and thought I knew what to expect, but it was more than I could have imagined.

    Do you guys have any recommendations on where the most likely place would be to get a battery for a KTM Adventure local? Im stuck at 39th and idylwyld and I am thinking/hoping its my week old shorai battery. Bike was fine all day but stopped to eat and came out to a nearly dead bike that wont crank, dash lights are weak and a little bit of an electrical burning smell for a second.

    Interstate Battery on Miners Ave. should have something suitable in stock. They are about two blocks north of 51st. Street on the right hand side.
    Good-luck!

    Welcome to Saskatchewan. Saskatchewan has lots of great off-road locations. You may want to join this group of Saskatchewan Advriders.

    Hey guys and gals,


    Anyone get out riding at all yet? I had my XT out at the end of January, and February just down the gravel roads a few times and thats about it this year. Actually the first time ever I got to ride my sled and bike on the same day! My xt is all taken apart now so I wont be able to ride for a week or two.


    Any of you guys get out and about for any decent rides yet this year?

    I changed my oil, installed a new k&n air filter and new tires need to be installed (next month) and got the assurance on the bike yesterday but I still didn't ride because of the snow storm last night and right now it's snowing! The Saskatchewan dual sport forum has been busy everyone wants to ride and some did already in the snow! I don&#8217;t think I will be able ride until Tuesday:becca.

    I'm out until at least the end of April. Went out after we got the big blizzard on my sled. Found a freshly installed unmarked culvert and broke my left wrist. Totally bummed out. Coming up on 2 weeks in the cast now with roughly 4 to 6 weeks to go hopefully.

    I broke my right wrist once and that suck (yes on the bike). But think about it could be worse... it could be both and that would really suck! All the best on you recovery; when you get better we can go for a ride to Baljennie :1drink.
