    You all wrung out your socks yet? Looks like a nice couple days coming up! Waiting for the picture thread to take off.

    Hi, I'm going to be in the area and could might be able to help out. What year is your DR? Is stock gearing ok?

    It's a 97 . I'm running a 520 setup. I'd be interested in whatever. It will be better than the current mess.

    Ok. I know it sucks to lose a weekend to a set of sprockets or innertube! (used to race offroad a little) I can pick up a set from the local dealer here and meet you somewhere so you don't miss out on the fun.
    Do you have the tools to change it out?

    Ok I just dropped in on my dealer, and he has a 520 set that he said was "close to stock" gearing- 16/45 with a 120 link EK brand O-ring chain for about $150
    I'm actually here looking at a pair of riding pants and jacket, but I can stop back in and grab it on my way out of town.
    Planning on leaving in about 2-3 hours so I'd be near Sweetwater probably around 2:00-3:00 local time, hopefully around Murphy NC by 5:00-6:00
    If I can help you out give me a PM and I'll send you my cell phone # so we can get in touch.
    No scam, I'll pay for the parts with my debit card and you can pay me cash when we meet up.

    Best laid plans and all. I was en route to join the fun but when I stopped for lunch, noticed a lot of oil on the wrong side of the engine (the outside). Stuck in Tallulah, LA trying to work out solutions. No KTM dealers in the area and it's Fri afternoon anyway. If anyone is still heading to MMM and passing through with a trailer, pick a brother up.

    Ya . . . . This is usually when this thread goes silent for 2-3 days :)

    Time to sit back and wait for the carnage to start rolling in :ear

    This was the answer. Dual Sport Touring hooked me up with chain, sprockets,front brake pads and a Moose shifter . THEN I rolled down the hill to Powersports Pro and had it all installed. Both are excellent. Fair pricing and they take care of travelers with extreme hospitality.

    Agreed. I was glad to hang my hat in Tennessee.

    Had a blast, seeing old friends and making new.
    Kudos to the GS Gaints and voluneers, the event and food were awesome.
    Hope everyone has a safe travel day.
    Sorry, no pics.
