    Just a heads up, guys: keep an eye on the weather. We have folks stuck in Gillette, WY, more hunkered down in NM. Mac 'n Carole will arrive today in their RV but have spent 3 days getting blown around. New from Kansas looks nasty for tonight. More folks coming from the N.E. are looking at scary weather too.

    I'm leaving tomorrow, hope to arrive Thursday late, 2000 miles going the southern route to avoid low temps and most of the potential rain.

    The weekend weather for Casey/Moonshine looks cool but otherwise okay.

    Hope to see a 1000 of my best friends on Saturday. :D :freaky :dg

    Hello again Indy! I recall talking to you re: your WR250 during the break at the dive-bar we stopped at. Would be a good place to land for a whole series of beer/drinks...I digress.

    Anyhow, I was on the red Wee and at the time I had a WR400, unfortunately I sold it late last summer...BIG MISTAKE! Anyhow, maybe we'll cross paths in Casey.

    The event is on, hard to say how many will show up. I'll be there unless I get stuck by by weather: Kingman, Flagstaff, AlbuQQ, Amarillo, OK City, St. Louis, Casey. Hope to arrive later on Friday in time to be at Richard's Farm.

    There is just NO WAY a KTM will make this ride.
    The water crossings require a superior machine such as a KLR.
    In the KTM owners manual it says do not cross water deeper than 10mm.

    Oh I think it will cross some water, lets not be wishing anything bad on us now Doug!!

    Actually Ive yet to ride it without rain coming down or high water!!

    My KLR still has last August Colorado mud on it. So if its real wet its coming to get washed.

    And Bone's, Rough road leaves at 830 IL time Be there or be Square!!
    Im looking forward to seeing how your KLR has morphed yet again

    The plan is to leave tomorrow and camp at Terry's farm. Mama, my wife, is fighting cancer again and I am either pulling the trigger and leaving tomorrow for the Run if she is feeling pretty decent, or staying with Mama! She has been feeling pretty good and I have been looking forward to making the Run again this year. My wife and I will decide tomorrow am.

    I hope to see everyone there...which means Mama is feeling pretty good!

    Also, the "dirty" ride will be interesting for me this year, as I will be getting new tires when I get back....slip, slide and ride....I don't really mind too much if I drop it....that's why I bought a Suzuki that I can afford to mess up at times! I remember that first hill by the dirt track....OMG...that was slick as snot...no matter what bike you had!

    I had my WR250R last year but had 80% street tires and was sliding all over the place too. :huh

    Looks like it will be dry this year so I'm bring the KLR that used to be Terry Hammond's. ;)

    I wouldn't count on it being very dry with that storm that moved thru last night. It may not be falling from the sky saturday, but some of those "road" are going to be muddy and slick.

    I've got D606's on the KLR so it will be ok. Actually it was pretty fun last year so I'm hoping for more of the same with less getting wet. ;)

    We only got a 1/4 inch last nite and a steady drizzle today, as dry as it is I dont anticipate and issues with water height or too muddy, should be a good ride!!

    If I think there will be carnage, I'll be on the KLR, If you see the KTM Im expecting good things/ easier conditions!!
