The lady at the camp ground said, "You DO know that this is BIKE week, right?"
Just stay at colemanfu's. Dude's got a 4Runner that'll sleep 4 easy
Thanks for the feedback. I'm leaning toward mounting the TKC80's even though I'll be doing 2200 miles of Interstate highway round trip, plus what ever miles I do while I'm in Florida. I go to Daytona Bike Week for a combination of warm weather riding, Daytona 200 & Superbike, and half a day at Main Street. If I have time I normally head south for a few days rather than stay in the "biker" areas.
I have not ridden TKC-80's yet, only Tourance and Heidenau K60's. I have a set of TKC-80's in my garage. From what I've read, they wear pretty quickly compared to what I've been using.
I'm thinking that taking this ride on TKC80's is worth wearing out a pair of tires. Now if I can rearrange my vacation to add a couple of travel days on the front end...
After 2 days of bending at work sorting scrap my ribs are giving me fits and today the ankle is hurting as bad as the the day of the biff.
Unproven new to me bike and questionable state of my injuries I've decided I'm out. Going to hang out close to the Scrub.
Enjoy the ride, maybe next time.
No possible improvement in 19 days!
Here kitty, kiitty!
The first page has been updated with the "IN" list. If I counted you and you are not sure, no worries. If you think you are going to join us please post up or send me a PM so we can have enough supplies and such.. I will try and add as we go so all will have an idea of folks they can join in with for camping or rooms or whatever . Thanks
You could run a Tourance on the back and TKC on the front, I do it, works fine. They'll wear out about the same time, 7-9k, maybe further. Some guys are running a Hiedenau on the rear and TKC on front, having good results. Last summer a buddy rode with that setup from Eastern Pa. to central Colorado and back and did a fair amount of offfroad while there with a 12GS, could put you in contact with him if you want.
The other thing is there's just a few places on this ride you'll want the extra traction and there'll be bypass's for the worst of it, most of the offroad are dirt roads. If it were me I'd run the longer lasting ones and maybe air down a little for the days of the ride.
I'll reconsider if you will do it on the ernge 450
I can use the 450 but why if the XRR or Vee is available.
"yes ma'am and from your pricing structure, so do you."
Show us u r a MAN. You'er calling me a pussy for bowing out riding injured on a KTM 400.
400 miles in 2 days... lets see you do it on a paint shaker with a 2x4 for a seat..
Easy kitty kat!
I don't have anything to prove. I get sand in my mangina every once in a while too!
I'm sure a sheep skin can do wonders for that KTM 400 seat.
I have one that might fit.
Meh, You're all weak
Musta been taken a few miles from home. With the 50 mile fuel range give or take
Will there be nails on the road?
OK, so I am expanding my BIKE WEEK TENT CITY MOTEL program to open on the 8th of March.
Rather than drive 90 miles to a 200 mile cruise I booked my KOA campsite from Friday thru bike week and back again...
This is the KOA on NOVA Rd, I need a bunch of partners to help cover the cost. Just think... you can wake Saturday with a short drive to the starting point and then stager back to the campsite Sunday and leave in time for work on Monday! See how easy that is?
If you want to be there for all of bike week that's great. I have two guys partnering on the last Thursday and Friday nights already. If you keep your hands to yourself you can share my tent.
Visa/MC/DISC accepted. we do PayPal also.
The campsite has water and elect. I will have wifi there.
I was waiting for that.
The 400's rear sprocket should make it.
Guess that's it. After having to kiss Brewman's Butt for my fail last time I'm sensitive to being called Kitty. JA also called a pussy on the phone yesterday when I called him about a job over here. YFF's are out to see me crippled.
Thankfully I have TRUE friends that are telling me to stay close to the scrub
The front page has been updated with some more details regarding places to stay. We also have the targeted starting and finishing areas. We have been working the route sheets and everything looks to be coming along nicely.
The plan is to meet at the starting area along A1A at 8:00 ish to hand out the route sheets and get the folks registered in the different classes for the "Big Game".
If you are coming with trailers, the best place to park and leave them is likely the Publix shopping center at I-95 and S. Old Dixie Hwy exit (eastside of 95). Then ride your bike to the starting area at the beach, which is just a few miles from there.
The riders meeting will be at 8:30am with everyone to start shortly there after.
This weekend we will be trying to line up Party central in Cedar Key I will try and take some new pictures.
