    Hi Killstar,

    Factoring out mud .... no problem for the Triumph. The roads are mostly gravel and chert. An aggressive tire tread pattern is always smart. I'd also recommend a bash plate to protect the cases from thrown-up rocks. Fuel stops are factored for 2-gallon tanks. When the Stampede registration form goes up in early 2011, just opt for a 'Scenic Ride' and you'll have a grand time!

    Fantastic productions there Roger. I enjoyed them as much as I enjoyed my first Stampede this year. I already have vacation time reserved for this years Stampede.

    Here's some more "eye candy" ...

    When I took a job transfer from Kansas to Tennessee years ago, people there would ask what Kansas was like .... as they'd likely seen the massive flatlands of western Kansas from I-70 or photographs. When asked what was the "state tree" ... I'd tell them tongue-in-cheek that it was the 'Telephone Pole'!

    Actually, we have many riparian forests throughout the state ... this one is a mere a quarter-mile from my suburban home.

    Hope you enjoy the view!

    Have put up a preliminary info page on the Stampede ... and there's reference in the "Upcoming Events" forum, too. Click the link under the photo.

    We're anticipating anywhere from 125 to 150 riders, or more. Last year, we had attendees come in from thirteen states.

    It's a beautiful area to ride in, all sorts of riding conditions depending on your tastes. Any questions about the Stampede, just throw it out on this thread or on the thread in the 'upcoming events' forum.
