    Good to see that in addition to Duy's 14 gallon tank, he also brought a reserve tank on his luggage rack, just in case. That boy loves to handicap himself.

    "we waited for about 1 hour and unknown to us the rogue riders are already heading to rock inn for beer and lunch........"

    Rogue riders?

    Is that what you call a group of guys who tells a group of guys where they are going and how they are going to get there?

    Awesome pix as usual, Joel. One day I'll get a PnS so I can "catch" the infamous noob in action :)

    You never know when you're gonna need to make a non-stop run to Chicago.

    john, i was told by jim to that you guys will meet at spunky. didn't know until dennis told me that you guys decided to deviate from the original plan and took the high road. i myself will be happy to join you and want to that high road if i knew.


    i have no idea who elses are with you. meantime, ktmami was worried that alon was still in rowher. sito, ktami, and i went back to rowher and look for alon and whoever was with him. in the process we wasted a good hour and eventually lost sito.

    we all know having a big group is like herding cats. situation like this, we need to stay on course and maintain good communication. breaking away from the group is ok with me, as long you guys personally tell me or let us know in advance before the start of the ride. having different agendas does not work well in a big group.

    to all, whenever possible, when we plan the ride, we ride the plan..:wave

    That's smart to put the drunks up against the wall. The one in the middle looks like he's about to go rogue.

    I've been working on fuel mileage and range with the big tank and was surprised when I hit the reserve around the 5/10/60 interchange. When I pulled in for gas, I put 6.5 gallons in (.5 gallon left) at 262 miles :( I thought for sure the range with 7 gallons would be around 350. It seems the 14t sprocket and 70MPH don't mix.

    Spinning your rear wheel in sand doesn't help either. Neither does spillage from dropping your bike.

    I too have been playing around with the range of the X and have been surprised at times how little I can go.

    Nowadays, I think the only reason Joel falls is so he can buy some more new gear.


    Nice report you world famous n00b. I wanted to join you guys but found a sheared off subframe bolt on Saturday night.

    I call :topes on this one Biggie. You haven't ridden your bike enough to shear a bolt off it.
