    A must do.

    Things change and evolve.
    Got 3 sections that I want to scout/incoorporate.
    This time, we're doing several miles of the Kentuck ORV park. Check map to get a idea of taking a right off the ORV Park road onto the White trail and ride the western side of Kentuck going south.

    Take a right on the Blue trail and then the Orange trail and hop back on the kentuck road going south.

    Next section is the area north of Old Mill Covered Bridge. We're had several fubars there. Nobody complained and some perhaps didn't know it was fubar cause we were having so much fun while we were lost.

    Next section is secret.

    Said all that to say this:
    I need/could use a rider or two to go along with me. Ain't gonna be easy and I understand if your not a morning person cause this will be a one day trip for me.
    Up/leaving at 4am NEXT SATURDAY MORNING and back home in the same day.
    Done this many times back when Bayron K. was laying the Cheaha Dualsport Route out and I was assisting.

    SO....my "Colorado Ride the Range 2012" video is finally complete and up on Youtube. The video is set to private to protect the names of certain areas/ST that we rode, at the discretion to not clog up certain riding areas that individuals from the SW CO area helped me with. Of course, Youtube degraded the quality of the video to 480p and my IMovie '07 doesn't have an HD/1080p function (only 960p), so the online quality is that much worse from flat screen HD quality, but you get the point. If you would like to view it, PM me your email address and I'll add you to the list of viewers. If you don't have a Youtube account, you'll need to create one to view the movie...but that's simple and easy.

    Vic, you are already on the list since I had your email address already.

    Cheesy riders and video by Icon.... . Not like your going to see these guys or the bike at the Paris-Dakar rally anytime soon. Unless they can meet the 450cc standard. Although it is a cool setup, love the GPS screen on the bikes if its real.

    Just my 2cents...

    Well, I like all the Icon vids. This one is cool to me because I lived about 2 blocks from the Rosegarden in Portland for about 3 months last year, rode my mountain bike by the river, and my DR in Tillamook Nat. Forest. Visited the dunes south of Portland too. I recognized quite a few landmarks. Pretty badass shots and riding too. Who knew? Cheezy is the new cool... :lol3

    Ok here's my new baby. The little Hussie 300 was looking for sumpin' special to snuggle up next to in the garage, so I searched high and low for just the right motorvation...I think might do me for a while:



    [​IMG]


    2010 Ducati Hypermotard; came with Mivv pipe, Power Commander V with AutoTune and O2 Optimizer, 44-tooth rear sprocket, and some spares and a special Ducati tools. I am just getting started on a few upgrades...decluttered the undertail, installed drag bars, probably will remove stock mirrors, and possible handguards/blinkers...

    The fella selling the bike was very cool. Older road-racing guy lives just south of Atlanta that used to hang with guys like Mamola and Vesco. Restores old 70's era Kawasaki gauges with original parts for a living. Just turned 65 and didn't need this much power (he still has his Honda 599 in the garage). Had previously owned 63 STREET motorcycles over the past 50 years (not counting dirt bikes). :puke1 Very interesting dude--will probably be at Barber's at the Vintage Races-hope to see him there. Glad I got to meet him! :clap

    Now thats a beauty. Not a day goes by that i miss my Ducati. Just wish we had the roads it needed to be on. That being roads with lots of tight curves...
    Very nice bike Skid. There is just something unique about that Ducati sound, especially with some nice Terminoni pipes...
    So is that the 800 or 1000DS motor?
