    So you and Bundy got in some miles up there last week on the D37 ride, where did you ride? We have a nice loop laid out with lots of single track and dirt roads, not much slab. We are all on plated bikes. Thanks for the offer on the tracks but I don't have a GPS.

    I don't know bundy, but i do know he was there. Im sure he can attest to the tracks, sunday was a bit jacked for those short on gas, but overall i thought damon laid out a good weekend. I do also have the roll chart (if i didnt throw it away) need to check. Maybe for your next trip up there. ENJOY & have a GREAT time!

    RIDE ON!

    Dang Scott, we were up there on the green hill for a pre Fathers day ride yesterday, Slowerthanu and I had a great ride from 8to8. Have fun! There were no other motorcycles in sight, but we did pass a father and his two daughters on the trail riding horses towing a packmule on an overnight Fathers Day pack trip.

    Here's the pics from Saturday's ride, slowerthanu (Adam) and myself started early (8:00 AM) and got back to the truck at dark. We covered 95 miles of mostly dirt with alot of single track in the mix. I rode Adam's Husaberg (2011 570) on some trails and decided that I need one. What a sweet bike, now I just need to sell both KTMs...:wink:. I think the Berg, properly set up could be the do all machine for single track and dual sport duty.

    Ok Perry,
    That looks epic...but it is a little far for me for a day ride. I would love to make that a weekend ride when you have the time.:evil

    Peter, once you ride the blue and yellow KTM, you won't wan't to go back to the orange. I almost forgot about the "Riders" weekend at the end of June. BUMP! for that ride!:deal

    OK if you get two I'l be able to ride one. That bike is out of my price range, maybe when I get old I'l be able to own one...

    because I haven't seen too many out there for sale everyone who has one loves it just like a KTM, and will likely ride them into oblivion.

    Like I will with my LC4 "till death do us part".:raabia

    You on the other hand will find one for dirt cheap and all farrkled up. Maybe two let me know. :evil
