    That looks like a 640 E. I think there were only 2 LC4's at the event and one was mine (640 ADV) the other was some guy from Kalifornia who I thought was involved in the Kings of the West High Speed Campout. :clap

    Ha Ha that's kinda funny
    The Kalifornia Guy that might be who your talking about and to, that has a habit of being in the horizontal riding position and just might have ben a huge KotW helper from a remote location standpoint might just be in that picture but I cant confirm that because I know nothing

    i had an absolute blast! that was the hardest, fastest riding i've done yet. some may think less of me for this, but i was pushed beyond by previous limits by trying to keep up with a couple of girls. johnny 5 on saturday and yzfcathy on sunday. holy shit, can these people ride fast! thanks for letting me tag along with you.
    to the ATR guys, thanks for putting this on, and everyone who pre-rode the trails and cleared trees, etc., thanks to brad and todd for inviting me to ride with them when my riding partner backed out for totaly understandable reasons.
    this was my first dual sport event, but definately not my last.

    OK, this is Joel from Kalifornia. I rode with him and his friend Jim the first half of Saturday and Sunday. He told me that he almost missed the tree. My friend Tom was riding sweep for our small group and helped Joel pick up the bike several times. Each time Joel had to take a picture so he should have a lot of pictures :) .
    Thanks for posting all the pictures Becktastic.
    What a fun weekend!

    Just what is this KotW thing that everyone's talking about?

    By the way, Joel rocked the KotW from his office being the eye in the sky.:lol3
