    Hey Tim,

    I tried to find you before I left 3 Step, but no one would admit to knowing where you were at. Just wanted to let you know that the statute of limitations should run out in early spring so that you can legallly return to Utah. Had a good time at the Alpine Rendezvous and really liked your photos that RTWpaul posted on on his thread.
    It's cold and snowy here in NoColorado. Was 2 degees in the AM on wednesday. The red thing in the picture is a snowblower...in case you've never seen one.:-) Glad to read that you are still travelling and doing well. Hope to see you in the springtime.

    Ride safe brother,

    I’m not Tim, but, snowblower? That’s a Coca-Cola sign! Don’t know what that other thing is. Never saw one in the Texas hill country!

    Haha was good to hang to with you too! In the spring I'll swing by your area so we can do a bit of riding...maybe you can come down to Silverton and we can to the Alpine Loop in the buggy...never done the high passes and looking forward to trying to roll the buggy off a cliff :lol3

    Weather is really bad this morning at the casa in Florida...temps about 60 and clear skies...sucks.

    Maybe that 'red thing' is used somehow with the yellow grain shovel.

    I've haven't been over to Silverton in a few years. Doing the passes in the mighty Talon would be fun. Supposed to be a blazing 52 degrees and sunny this weekend. 20191026_145739.jpg Will probably get the WRR out for a ride before the really cold weather arrives!

    Ride safe pal,

    Sounds good...I'm planning on heading back up to western NC in a couple of weeks...taking the 250 Rally again...lots of fun!

    Let's plan on doing some of the passes on the bikes and the buggy next year...my buddy Ben (Folly1) and I are planning on doing the Idaho, Utah, and Arizona BDRs next summer in the buggy (it's street legal in those states) because we're pussies and the cup holders work really well.

    I wonder how a lightly packed KTM 1190 would handle those BDR routes your planning, especially Idaho?

    What month are you anticipating for Idaho?

    Ben and I were thinking the middle of August ending up at 3 Step....if you'd like me to carry your stuff in the buggy the cost would be around $20,000

    Clean underwear might drop it to $15,000.

    Let me know if you get close to Montana. We might be able to meet up. Good to meet you at 3 step this fall.

    Tewster2, my son and I will be venturing up your way from our home in the New Bern NC this spring. Plan to camp along the Davison River near Brevard and ride the Pisgah NF and BRP. If your in the area late April would like to buy you a cup of coffee and talk about Alaska. If you’re ever in coastal NC give me a shout.

    Hiya Tim. Just wanted to let you know you're (mostly) responsible for the recent addition to my garage.

    Just got it plated and heading off to Sand Hollow tomorrow. That was an expensive joy ride you took me on last month at the DR650 Rally. :D

    Hey Steve!!!! That's so cool....you're gonna one the Talon. I'm in FL at the moment and looking forward to getting back out west in January. I'll be in the Death Valley/Arizona area for January and February. Let's get together :thumb:thumb:thumb:thumb:thumb

    Howdy! I'm not living in NC anymore but get back there often to ride. Please keep in touch and hopefully we can all get together in the spring before I head to Europe.
