    Thanks for the ride report, I enjoyed it. I am planning on the TAT this summer, maybe I will see you out there. And I am right on the WABDR, so holler if you need anything, a beer, place to crash, etc.

    Smart to wrap this one up and get a fresh one going...

    How's the KTM running now that you have it home?

    Always good to see you, Paul! Enjoy this summer! I hope to see you out there somewhere.

    Great job on this report! Thank you. I'm listed on the tent space thread. You are most welcome here should your travels bring you to SE Georgia.

    I really enjoyed your report and the excellent pictures. I'll be following along on your future ventures. I'll be in Co, Ut, and Wy toward the end of August. Perhaps we'll meet, but you'll probably East by then. Good luck and safe travels.:clap

    Paul,
    thanks for the report, pics and inspiration!

    If you are doing UTBDR then the COBDR is only a hop away, and has to be part of the "toughest ride in the US" tour. If you decide to come this way (CO) send a pm.

    Ride on :clap

    I am counting on being there Paul. Getting everything sorted on my end. How cool will it be for two 625's to do some dirt together this year? Plus, I told you that I owed you a drink...

    Right on. I am thinking somewhere in CO during the CDR portion of your trip. My 625 is in pieces right now as I repair my clutch slave and an oil leak on my CS shaft (among other things) :lol3

    Paul, great to see things are going well. As always if you are up in Ontatio again on your travels get it touch and we will make sure you are looked after.

    Cheers! Jody
