    Yes.
    We have made sure to stay out of the counties where it's not legal.

    BTW, Sunday we hit some roads in the Hoosier near Kurtz and stay just south of the county line....

    Knobbies are not required, unless you like your but to be shacken

    Al,

    Considering coming (KTM 640 A) and bringing my brother (TE610) and a buddy (DRZ400E). Any idea what time we will wrap up on Sunday?

    Missed you at the MotoGP this year!

    I should know more on Sunday...
    MapSource says about 3hrs ride time, yet you know how that is....
    Sunday is only like 70miles with a lunch stop in Kurtz

    Jeff, btw, I'm loving the new to me 690...
    My feet no longer shack after I get off the bike!!!!! Unlike the 640Adv use to....

    Doug,

    He's doing pretty well. He's a tough old fart! I think he'll be ready for the ride by then.

    I'm going to try to get out to Austin's place in the next week or two... Work has been kicking my butt lately... Lots of evening meetings!

    Glad to hear that you are liking the 690! If they had an adventure version of that bike, it's what I would have bought. I just wasn't convinced an affordable log distance fuel setup was going to be ready by the time I wanted to go to Alaska...

    I think I've decided that I'm going to sell my track bike and get a Husaberg FE 450 to compliment the 640 Adv...

    I've only done one track day this year and I've started enjoying this dual sport stuff with more emphasis on the trails, and the 640, while capable, can wear me out on the tighter stuff...

    OHV stickers showed up for Amy's bike today. Too bad monroe county is off the map. She's all excited about country cruises. I'm still a little unclear about the laws though. What I found says to contact local authorities to see what's legal to ride and says nothing about needing motorcycle endorsement.

    Since DIRT is now an arm of ABATE, I've working with the DNR to run a series of articles in the ABATE monthly mag of some of these FAQ's......
    Freed me what you're wanting to know.

    Keep your eyes out

    Curious to know if there is power available at LCRP. In looking for info online I find several indications of RV camping, which usually means power is available.

    Considering staying at the park on Saturday night... Not that power will be the determining factor in whether or not I stay, but it would help with the planning to know which way it would be...

    I'm going to try and bring both bikes, the 690 and the 450...
    90miles of back roads shouldn't take that much time and there should be time to go play in the woods too, on both days....

    Roy and I are heading down Friday if anyone want's to come down early you are more then welcome.
