    HEAR YE, HEAR YE, tis that time once again. Mother Nature is again showing her beautiful preamble of spring and bestowing upon us the desire to cast off the slumbers of hibernation and rejoice.

    It is once again time for the community gathering of gregarious camaraderie. Let's charge up those batteries kick the tires and fire up the engines and kick it off with a fun ride to Prairie and back via our beautiful backyard of gravel roads.

    You can bring your own meal/snack or support the local business by purchasing a hotdog or burger and then start our ride back.

    This will be a easy ride filled with inspiring scenery along the, meet new new folks, or see old friends. As you know this will all be weather dependent.


    Thinking of doing this route again, from a couple years ago.

    Nice, look forward to this one Sam, a great opportunity to get the Tiger acquainted with the dirt. We'll see how the schedule works out, this may be the day I have to leave for my next job in ND, and if it is, I may bug you to go out and do a pre-ride.

    I was just thinking to myself that I wanted to head up that way and see how those roads are thawing out. :clap

    I generally use Stabil in non-ethanol fuel and have been using Startron in the E10. I make it common practice to treat every tank of fuel, even in the summer.....you never know when a bike might site for a month or so. IDK how effective Seafoam is as a treatment... I will run it, but more as a cleaner to scrub out the system.

    I do believe the treatments work and do help/prevent the fuels from breaking down..... never had any issues in any bike, but I do find that I need to replace/refresh the fuel in the lawn equipment after sitting the winter.

    Why ride the DRZ that far? Throw it in your pickup and unload it at my place in New Plymouth. Then it's only 18 miles of slab.

    The meeting place is the Shell station right after the only stop light in town.

    There shouldn't be any tough roads. Everything from high speed gravel to easy two track.

    Well Hell! if that's the case, I can ride Moya then. I've not ridden it since last August... well a short ride out to the Military range and back just to see how it's running after the valve job.

    So if that's the case I might just be there.

    I don't hate the DRZ, it's served me well. I beat the crap out of it for a week in DV three weeks ago and it in turn reciprocated in-kind to me. What it is, is I don't enjoy riding it down long stretches of pavement. it's made for dirt gravel and rocks and likes it... it's light enough and pretty dang maneuverable.. it'll do pavement too,

    DV, lot's of this stuff

    and a bunch of the time I was too busy rock stepping to take any pictures through this place

    So no I don't hate the DRZ

    So, what you getting at? BTW I assume you got the carb cleaned up on the DR.

    OK, on the DRZ I have a total range of just at 200 miles with my spare gas can; is that enough? Not much better on the 990 either.
