    What tires are you running on the big bikes? I'm starting to get the hang of my 990 on dirt roads, but need to move to decent tires before I ride the fun stuff.

    Looks like fun. I debated going, but my bike was half way through maintenance and I was not willing to put on and take off the safari tank again. Huge mistake! Missed all the fun.

    Sweet videos, Randy ! Thanks for taking and posting them.

    Make no mistake about it, Jon might have come in a little hot on that corner but he has the talent, as does Matt, to be an outstanding rider.

    Indeed. With emphasis on the "if possible". Randy is capable of riding that 990 Adventure very fast on challenging terrain.

    We saw Villopoto in his whiskey tango tuned up Cummins on the way home.

    He was all flamed that Matt was wearing his colors riding a lesser man's Zuzuki so he blew black smoke all over him :lol3

    Dunlop 606 front and 908 rear. Bruno's recommendation. Totally changes the bike in the dirt - from a slippery, scary beast to a monster:clap The 908 pulls through sand like a tractor. They are very expensive though - some of the guys are trying other alts - please comment.

    Turning off the ABS is the other key tactic.

    I'll be there for my first GLDS trip. Paul I rode with you and the gang earlier this summer on a Devil's Lake ride. Was on the WR450.

    I'll look for you and Bruno again. Can't miss that crowd!
