    No worries, I have lots of tracks out to Husky. Will be interested in the schedule of the big group and when they are planning to arrive at Husky.

    I know I'm speaking for a friend (that's rarely on ADV) but I was just over at his house and he now has a KTM 950 but used to own a BMW GS 1200 and said hands down the KTM wins.
    dirt. power. flickability. smile factor. and his wife has a better time on the KTM over the BMW. he also mentioned a problem with the BMW central wiring that even the dealer couldn't figure out.

    I've ridden Scorpion's 990 and was in love. so was my GF when we rode the twisties out to Malibu/Rock Store.

    post up pics of your new ride when you get it. :thumb

    bill, todd and others coming from oc. most likely you guys will take the 395 and hook up at Johannesburg or Husky. some of us are riding from home, plan to leave a 6am, good chance we will be at mike's roadhouse before 8am. We will take Cal City then get gas before heading out to the monument.

    anyone wants to join the slower group, let me know by posting up.

    getting a front too today.

    Hahahaha...you said, "schedule"...bwahahaahhaa...

    You know how it is T...sometime between 10am and 4pm....:lol3

    Breakfast at the Roadhouse...leave at 8:30...Everyone will have already gassed up and set tire pressure etc etc....:deal:rofl

    We will probably Skirt the West side of the 14 up to Jawbone Station..From there take Redrock/Randsburg Rd for a couple miles...then follow the tracks near the RR Line south of that Rd to Randsburg...over the Hill to The Lakebed etc etc...

    We will have 1.7 Flats...2.3 loose bags....6.4 stops for jacket removal...At this point we will send 3 riders out to find DannyG...after that we will roll into the Husky...

    Hopefully you will enjoy the morning air and just want to blast up to Mojave for Breakfast....If you guys take the 405 up..several of us will meet you in the valley and ride up wich ya....
