    Just a general shout-out and invite. I hope to do a 2-week trip off road around Utah, Colorado and Nevada (mostly Utah). I want to leave around Labor Day and plan on camping the entire way.

    I will be on an 950 SER so I will avoid anything too technical.

    I haven't planned anything other than making sure the bike and my gear are in good working order. Outside of that, I have no plans other than going as minimalist as possible and as far as possible.

    Any victims, er I mean compadres wanna join me? I promise not to drink your beer!

    Edit: the first couple of pages are just smack talk - if you wan to get straight to the RR, go to page 2

    I promised the CFO I would at least try and find a riding partner before heading on this expedition alone.

    Hick: "Honey, I promise. I posted a thread 2 months in advance looking for a riding partner. No one was interested...I don't know why."

    CFO: "Nobody replied? Oh poor baby, you must feel so lonely. Is there anything I can do to make you feel better?"

    Hick: "A dozen hot wings would make me feel better."

    The Dizzer found a new happy owner. I put about 300 miles on her after the rebuild and she was running like a Swiss timepiece.

    Right now, this is in my garage (the bike, not the mountain range):

    This is one of the roads I plan on riding. It's really private...nobody will know!:eek1

    Hick, with a lead in line like that I am surprised you got any responses :lol3

    We used to have a saying down in the Keys.

    If you drop your wallet in Key West kick it back to Islamorada before you bend over to pick it up......

    Have a good ride but dont use that line on any strangers you meet....

    I may be able to tag along for a few days... no way two weeks. My ass couldn't take being keyed for that long. KTM keys are small?? Right??:D:1drink

    Roostre,

    It will be good to have you join up. I will try and leave during Labor Day weekend so I don't have to use as much time off. Hopefully the rides will be in the less inhabited areas so we won't encounter much traffic.

    I do hope to do the Kokopelli (on a 950:eek1), WRT, Kane Creek, Baxter Pass, Comb Wash, Burr Trail and a few others.

    Anyone is welcome to join me for any or all of the ride.

    With this crowd I'm surprised he didn't get more.
