    I was on this ride Saturday as well! I live in the Black Hills, and that was one of the best rides yet! It was a blast trying to keep up with Cody! First KTM rally for me and I was impressed. Making plans for next year!

    Had a good time, was a little bummed about the rain. Was a windy ride up there through Wyoming! The rain worked in my favor tho, I was able to have some great conversations with other riders and the vendors.

    The routes weren't all that well described this year at all. In previous years they'd have a difficulty rating, percentage of dirt vs pavement and descriptions like singletrack, big bike friendly etc.

    Saturday we ended up linking two of the loops, the Rushmore loop and the Shorty Loop. Rushmore was very scenic, but lots of tourists, got stuck behind a guy literally doing 10 mph. Easily had a line of 12-18 cars behind him and he refused to pull over in a pull out. We eventually got by but I felt badly for the cars as they weren't able to squirt through like we did.

    I'm excited to have it back at Crested Butte and I've already signed up

    I had a great time this year. I was the fella that Ronnie Renner was talking about during dinner Friday night. I roosted him pretty bad. Was heading up hill in some slop so I wasn't laying off the gas. He's a great dude to ride with though, real humble. This was my first event and will not be my last. What a great event. I enjoyed the free beer Saturday night a little too much though.

    My thoughts also!

    I used to be a Honda guy -- it was either color red or nothing for me. That was a long time ago though. Still, I was not a fan of orange. KTM first lured me in with a beautiful white/blue/yellow TC250 Husky. I just couldn't resist it. Then with the 1190 Adv R. I decided to let the orange crash bars slide because they were attached to such an awesome bike with truly groundbreaking technology and specs. But after this rally, I am finally an orange fan. KTM works really hard to win love and approval of their customers on many levels, even after selling their product. Just caught myself shopping for clothing today and paying extra attention to everything that is pure orange, or black/gray with orange accents!

    How does one who did not attend this years rally receive that email from KTM or where can I go to find out about 2017 Rally?I attended Crested Butte 2015 and did not receive any emails or brochure info on the 2016 rally , guess I must have done something to piss off KTM.

    just want to give broken arrow horse campground a shout out for making us feel at home and it's great location.

    i posted many pics on the thread (linky) so people can see that it is truly and adventure friendly campground.

    couple of locals gave us the tour of their secret riding area

    I think that these orange bikes have tracking devices in them. I sold my 990r this past march and KTM must know what I did. :-) Would a Husqvarna purchase make them happy ?
    Maybe by next years rally I will have something orange. Rumors sound encouraging but timing is not yet firm.

    I'd love to see more pics and vids (especially that) of the rides -Cement Ridge, Mike's, etc. and the pro riders. Probably should post in Ride Reports and start a thread for this event because I think this one will get restricted now the event is over.
