    This ride vs drive debate is some funny poo :topes

    One of the things I like most about ADV is that this is where I have found the most true motorcycle enthusiasts who appreciate ALL aspects of the riding experience. Not just 'bikers' who are exclusively road-racers or cruisers or off-roaders or tourers. Almost everyone I know here has, or has had, a wide variety of bikes over their riding career.
    They 'get it' :nod

    This also seems to be a community where everyone can find their place (with the exception of a few wannabees or posers who may be looking for awhile) :rolleyes

    I've ridden to 4 previous WARPs, always on my 950A. This year I hauled up a different bike to better experience some of the other riding opportunities the area has to offer. Its all good :thumb

    I fully plan to be at WARPED XVII, probly on my 2020 Zongshen 50kW eV2 :ricky
    Hope to see you FFs there :gerg

    Yeah, i'll get a RR goin' in a bit... :augie

    I think this is, pretty much, the key here. Some people like to ride small dirt bikes on single track while others prefer to ride their bigger bikes to the event and ride whatever dirt they can.

    The point, as I see it, to WARPED is that we all like riding motorcycles and drinking beer and lying about how well we ride our motorcycles.

    So why is it that people seem to feel a need to insult or question the type of motorcycles that others ride or how they get to the event. Some of the bigger trailers created some logistical headaches, but that was MY problem to deal with. (Others could take a lesson from how gracious Conestogaman was when he was asked to move his stuff to make way for a trailer. Thank you Jeff.)

    Let's please get this back on track to pictures and stories from the weekend. Ok?

    well, at least someone got a picture of my bike (r1100rs on the right). I musta been keeping a _real_ low profile, as I haven't seen my ugly mug in anyone's snaps yet.

    It's the camera on their helmets that made me think of it. :lol3

    Great pics so far folks. It's appreciated by those of us who weren't able to make it. Looks like the weather was pretty comfortable.

    Any details on the plaque for Mike's family? That was a really nice thing to do.

    many parts of the road were washed out and made it not difficult, but challenging for the big bikes
