Chris your smugmug is pure porn right now:eek1
"Noobs might benefit from a bit of hand holding to get through the administrative checks". I thought it was just a figure of speech
sorry, the bike looks fantastic!
Help...You kiddin! That's what we pay those 2 to do.
Nah you got it all wrong, they've both been working very hard on the bikes while I stand around and try not to get in the way
Are all 3 thru inspection now?

ASO installing motor tags (so you can't replace motor without then knowing). Still in scrutineering but almost done! pic.twitter.com/IoavGL75
I can go to bed now.
Oh I'm sure they've both busted their arses on the bikes once they showed up. It just reminded me of driving by a NCDOT crew working on the roads. 2 doods watching the others work.
Hijack... Ted, My wife is hooked on your "Tales" thread. Think you've sold a couple of copies at A53.
Thanks for the great pics and inside scoop.
btw....are you getting any new ideas for the next version of the 'stalker van'?
I've been trying to select the most appropriate emoticon to express Eleanor's excitement. She's turning 2 next week, so it is a toss up between and oser. Of course there is also . All this is to say: HOORAY!
And those pictures of the dunes were incredible.
Thanks for making this come alive for all of us. It is special to share in Ned's big adventure via and along with all 180,000+ you.
Ned - we are cheering for you. Hope you get some sleep before the big ride.
I'm no expert, but I'll throw something together later tonight or tomorrow with some basics
Most of you already know of the photo locations. I do not have time to post all here for a while. Here you go. If you post on another thread, please give me credit.
A whole gaggle of them. Be good if they were pointing and acting like they knew something
One of the reasons to go with the setup that Ned picked was to keep the bike feeling like a dirtbike, vs a rallybike. With the weight frame mounted, the effect is not so bad as you might think. I rode some early versions of the rally setup and it is very balanced. On tight single track riding my 530 back to back with the beta for Ned's setup I found that it planted the front end nicely and calmed things down a bit over rocky and sandy terrain.
Chris, Scot and Ned have done an incredible job with the rally setup. They should be proud of what they've accomplished!
Wow, thank you.
Happy to see you at least get a little time to clear your head and get ready for one hell of an adventure, good luck Ned!!!!!
No idea who the Hillsame squid is...in any case, the "r" was omitted to save weight, I'm sure of it.
Jonah: "Just caught Deadly sitting on my bike, twisting the throttle open and closed with his elbow flapping up and down like a pump-jack, going ring-ding, ding, ding, ring, ring, ring-ding, ding, ding...Took me a half hour to clean the spit off my road-book holder..."
Ned: "Maybe they don't have four strokes in Canada? Vestal thinks he saw him humping my exhaust yesterday...Recon it's gonna be a long couple-weeks"
Jonah: "I recon."
