    Woah, so sorry to hear about your accident @1TRAK I hope you are healing up well!!!

    I spent a week in British Columbia, 4 days of which I spent drinking the orange koolaid on a 1090 Adventure R while my REV'IT! teammates and I did a tour with MVM Adventures.

    If you ever want to experience an amazing fly and ride in BC, I HIGHLY recommend Www.mvmadventures.com Matt and Aaron showed us some amazing riding and scenery, and they are some of the best guys you'll ever meet. SO MUCH FUN!!! They are adding enduro tours out of Aaron's cabin for next year, so I am hoping to work with them to plan an ADV/Enduro hybrid trip next year.

    PS, I really liked that orange koolaid... maybe a little too much...

    I ended up taking Wednesday off from work and getting some seat time. The water crossing at Brownhill Rd was not a water crossing. The weather was hot (90degrees) but it was beautiful. Leaves are starting to fall.

    The new/remodeled Premier Co-op at the hwy 50 SR 135 junction in Brownstown has a pump with ethanol free fuel. It's the pump closest to the intersection.
    The Marathon station on West Tipton (across from Pizza King) in Seymour had an ethanol free pump, and I think that the Walmart fuel center in Seymour also has ethanol free.

    Good to hear. I'll definitely be glad to not have to drive out of state if I need any work done on the Tiger.

    Traded the Tiger for a new 1090. Drove all the way to Pittsburgh for it, got a smokin' good deal, and I can't wait to spend next week breaking it in!

    Unfortunately showing up with helmet hair would be a bad look apparently *eyeroll* Buuuut, I may get to take it for a spin in the morning before I have to get ready to go anyways. I don't think I can wait all weekend.

    Nothing wrong with a little orange kool-aid! I got sucked in awhile back and then sampled some Swedish blue kool-aid (that's the stuff), but then KTM decided to quit serving the blue stuff. I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts compared to the the Tiger.

    Haha, and he wont be as mad about it :lol2 I actually stopped to see him a couple of days ago to ask him his opinion and the first thing he said before I told him why I was there was, "Go buy a KTM!" So he got his way, lol! I'm going to let him do the first service and check everything over for me, then I'll do my own after that.

    My Multistrada is up for sale and I need to get the fuel level sensor replaced, I'm actually scared to go talk to him about it. He's intimidating but love him to death! I am on his good side since I sold my Husky 630 and replaced it with a 690R, but he will not be happy if I sell my Duc...
