Nice work. Perfect picture for a perfect ending.
That was great Jeff. Enjoyed the facebook log.
nice job, Joe and Jeff
Talk about an Iron Butt award. They need to make a new category for that one. Job well done guys!
Joe is one of the luckiest kids in the world to have an Uncle like Jeff and to experience an adventure like that. At 18 he is probably a better rider now than most of us who have been riding all our lives. Epic adventure for sure!
Congrats Jeff! Let's us know when the party is to celebrate your return.
You know Jimmy, I'd like to do that. Just give me a week to decompress and try to get some of the videos together.
Awesome! Lucky kid and lucky uncle. You are right, only a youthful heart, and butt, would want to do a transcontinental highway trip on a XR saddle! Well done guys, you define the title of "ADV Riders"! I expect a full report with plenty of kick ass pictures and stories. I already told Lynn that I thought that this would be cool for me and Gabriel to do in the summer of 2022.
Semi local off road training: Could be fun. Bob White at CCDR gives classes as well:
Wow, what an awesome adventure! Jeff, you're the man, Joe- you rock, safe journey home!
That's just plain awesome.
Wow .... has anyone been outside today? What a perfect day for anything outdoors. I even took a ride over to my brothers house and it was kind-0f cool on the bike. The weekend is even looking better. Hmmmmmmm
Just saying. Could be a great weekend for camping.
The TAT at that age is truly wonderful and a great baptism into riding. I can't wait to take my son on transamerica trip.
I am going to take him and his buddy on matching KLX 250s out this weekend for a riding/camping trip. Leaving Friday. Seems like last weekend repeat.
Had time to kill in Portland, so went downtown to Voodoo Doughnut. Right next to the Kitkat Burlesque Club. First time I'be ever been panhandled and asked if I could spare a doughnut.
The bacon maple was worth it.
I'm coming home tomorrow!

Captain Crunch with Crunchberries doughnut! My blood sugar spiked just looking at that thing.
most of the time there is a block long line just to get in. AB
Dude you have been eating that a long time if you could tell at a glance what it was.
In his defense he does have children.
Installed DirtBagz Racks/bags on the WR last night. I think I'm going to wait for me exhaust shield to arrive before I actually use them though as I don't want to melt a hole in the bags. Strategic choices were required in determining what order to install all the bolts and be able to get the holes to line up. It took two tries on the right side because I chose poorly.
uh, yeah the kids.. that's why I recognize it.
So the dirt-bagz, big or small? I like 'em. Rain seeps in through the zippers. Pack your closes in trashbags unless you like sleeping in soggy drawers.
I am riding the small bike in the Amherst area next weekend 8/2-3 if anyone is interested. I am planning on trucking the KTM up to Alhambra Rd and setting up base camp Friday night, ride all day Saturday than back the flat lands Saturday evening. Shoot me a pm and we can set up a place to meetup.
I bought the Rangers(big) figuring the cost wasn't much more and I'd rather have things fit versus regret buying too small. I didn't expect them to be waterproof based on the reviews I'd read. It seems like everyone was really going with the Wolfman racks and bags instead but those are a bit rich for my taste. After riding without a tail bag on the WR the other week I realized just how much easier it is to get on and off. That and the luck I've had with losing items off the rear rack or out of bags attached to the rear rack also influenced the decision. Overall it looks like the bags when full will be about the width of the bars and stick out slightly more on the right in order to clear the exhaust.
Next projects for the WR will be getting into the service mode and try and tune it a little bit. Not that it runs bad but just to see if it can be the slightest bit better. Otherwise I think it is on to just replacing consumables as needed. Pretty sure it is the nut between the seat and handle bars that is the limiting factor in performance for all of my bikes.
Also, how are the ribs healing Dan?
Well there's your problem right there :eek1
Looks kind of strange as a unicycle, sent the FD off to Anton for a rebuild.
