    .

    Most people who can call themselves adventure riders
    with a straight face are going to ride from where they
    live to the rally. See, we aren't a bunch of Harley
    poseurs who trailer bikes to Sturgis and then
    ride around the town, we actually PREFER to RIDE.


    Thanks for the spam though. I like it best fried with
    some cabbage and Carlsberg.

    I think it's a great idea.

    Riding the COBDR sounds like a lot more fun than 1200 miles of interstate. At least it does to this adventure rider. :ksteve

    Great opportunity for the people that don't have enough time or the desire to ride to and from Colorado.

    Thanks for making this available for the Adventure riders and thanks for posting it up so people know it's available.

    Maybe I will finally get a chance to meet you at the D100 this year. :clap

    I am not sure this qualifies as SPAM. You must not be familiar with how I operate my business.! I am a proud financial supporter of Blue Ribbon Coalition, American Motorcycle Association, the rider down foundation, as well as have donated many of my services at my cost to support our wounded veterans returning from service as a thank you. Along with the countless hours contributing to our local lands (attending DNR meetings, working trail maintenance etc.)
    This would most likely be done as a courtesy to my customers, and the ADV community here in the PNW at a cost basis.
    A lot of my clientele range from mayor's to janitors, not everyone has the available time to ride for a week to get to a starting area such as the COBDR, complete the route and return home. This would make it feasible for EVERYONE who would like to ride something like this, myself included.
    This might not sound as ADVENTURE riding to you, but it will help the everyday rider make something possible that might have been out of the question before.

    While I will not attend the KTM rally due to the lack of orange in my stable (wait, does Husqvarna now qualify as orange? :dunno), I appreciate being told this in the regional forum, which I frequent on a daily basis, rather than the Vendors forum, which I frequent, uh... pretty much never. Especially since what he's offering is really only applicable to Seattle-area riders.

    Not to mention the fact that, as has been said, not all of us have the time to devote two or three days each way to riding the superslab. I mean, jeez, that would be three oil changes and a set of tires on the Husky :lol3

    Great offer and the right place to post. I have two KTM's - the 200 not street legal and the RC8R not adventure worthy.

    I think it is a great idea , regardless that in my case I plan to ride to and from Anacortes .
    Not everyone can take a week or more off (and not everyone is willing to have a sore ass to get to a rally)
    Thanks for organizing this.

    Thats a great Idea Alex.:clap I know for myself the rally was off the table this year due to time restraints, Now if I could ride down and fly back That would make a big difference in my plans.
    Last year I had an absolute blast at the Rally. Met some great people and now am looking forward to this year, Thank You

    I concur with Cyclops and others, the KTM rally and COBDR were not an option for me this year due to distance and lack of time off work.

    This offer from Konflict is a game changer. And like Huzar said, I rarely visit threads other than the PNW thread.

    Thanks Alex.
