    I'd probably say the Strom would be good this year. Looks like I'm getting more on road/dirt road riders this year.

    Thought the warm weather was breakin on through but alas it hasn't. Any way looking around for a bike and I found a few here and there. Seems like people are asking pretty high prices for bikes. At least I think they're high. 04 950's selling for $8g! That's nuts. Lesser priced bikes are out there ya just have to keep an open eye. Let me know if you find one. On another note the Rally is moving along nicely. i will be getting shirts for this year. I'll keep you posted on that topic. Heading to Utah tomorrow. Talk to you all soon. May is right around the corner.:robin

    Hey guys--had a great time last year and should be in again this year. I'm trying to talk some of my western PA KTM 9x0 riding buddies into joining me.

    Now that my kickstand sensor is fixed, I'm looking forward to actually standing on the pegs during the ride (rather than "squatting" the whole time)!

    Hey Dave, looking forward to the JT Rally. It is going to be the only one I do this year due to funds. I have it posted over at SSYSO forum and told them to let you know who is coming. I don't know if they posted here but it looks like 6 or 7 stroms atleast from there.
