    Thanks for making out for a chilly Dawn Patrol. It was an awesome loop. Just what I was looking for. And thanks for posting the video.

    I will when it stops feeling good.




    Off to Jackson Hole this weekend. I know that doesn't sound like
    much of an adventure, but it was last year. Wives ride. Gotta take
    em where there is shopping and food to get on the back.

    It ended up a nice trip and well worth the soaking.

    Two of my friends passed through there last weekend on their way to bear tooth pass. It turns out that the entire bear tooth pass road is now a gravel road. They've stripped the pavement completely.

    You could always suggest a longer ride and once there have a "oops, I guess we'll have to do DS riding now honey!" moment.

    Maybe the Strom would be a better choice this year. We didn't do
    Bear Tooth last year. Too many stores that had to be explored.

    I just called your office for some moving stuff. I asked for you to see
    what they would say, and I qoute:

    "Matt is out for a week or so for penal enlargement surgery."

    I thought "is that like buying a Harley or a really big truck???"

    He didn't say KTM so I know it isn't reduction.:lol3

    Have a fun safe race!!!

    Your bike looks well prepped.:thumb

    They were suppose to keep that a secret. It was going to be a suprise for you and infidel, a big suprise but now the dicks out of the bag. Thanks to all for the good words. Through tech and found out there's no other 950's.

    Yeah. It tells me I'm racing a bunch of little girl bikes. I mean my two year old is able to ride a 450.

    Warp9man, Vanguard and I are going dirt-roading Sunday, most likely Hardware Ranch area. Plan on packing a lunch and being gone most of the day. Anyone else want to join in?

    Don't forget to damn the proxy servers as well, if you have 'em.

    Firewalls can be dealt with. Proxies often can not.

    I see him! Looks like the 950 is likely doing OK in that open desert terrain. :clap

    Speaking of 950s (where'd ya get that picture??) -- Just brought home a 2006 Adv-S and I'm jazzed to get it in the dirt. Anyone want to ride Saturday? Been wondering if that West Fork road goes all the way down to Hennifer. Oh, and whether there's any roads or trails from Trial Lake to Bald Mountain, or alternate routes from Murdock Basin out to Hwy 150.

    BTW, gonna sell the 2005 red, knobby-equipped Wee-Strom in case anyone's interested. I'll post it when I get some photos without mud.

    Starskey, I can e-mail you the Hardware Ranch loop track we did last week.

    I'm game for another round. Plenty of places to ride in that area.
