Vegas to Reno. V2R. The longest off road race in the US. KTMs. Big ones. During our recent trip to Baja, a plan was hatched. Scott and his fiancee had raced the 2012 V2R in their jeep - they had the tracks and the maps. Scott thought it would be awesome on a bike. And, even better, they live close to Reno and would serve as home base. The only problem was gas. These are thirsty machines. The 535 mile course is remote and none of the bikes could carry enough fuel. We needed a chase vehicle. Now, who could we get to drive it? photo: rburkat Long story short, Scott ended up being our guy. Thank you, Goggles! This ride couldn't have happened without you and your gracious support. We owe you, buddy! As the weekend approached, I started getting nervous. These were big heavy bikes. That looked like a pretty rough course. Sand, rocks, silt. Nothing around for miles and miles... Heres some of the V2R porn that Scott sent us: HiRev photo V2R. Gulp. I've made a huge tiny mistake... They don't call Reno the biggest little city in the world for nothing! The riders: Bartek. Formerly Bartek990, he should probably upgrade to Smartek1000. photo: rburkat Ceasar. KTMADV. If you need anything - he knows a guy. photo: rburkat Radek. rburkat. The Canadian Animal, or Canimal Training! Rick. BigWan's brother. I christen thee, MediumWan. He rides an XR650L, but for this ride, he was an honorary KTM. Us Wans. Matt and Kelly (BigWan and LittleWan). I was only riding parts of the course, so Matt could have some playtime with the boys. The rest of the time I could hang out with Goggles in the truck. photo: KTMADV and, last but not least, our fearless driver. Scott. Goggles Pizano. Actively replenishing his karma bank. Let's do this.
