Re: Somewhere Else Tomorrow

I watched the entire 2nd one. It was awesome! I wish I had their adventure spirit! In my opinion, these guys straddled the borderline between "adventure" and "stupidity". If a man runs into a burning building to save a puppy with full understanding of the risk he is taking, that is bravery. If he d...

Re: Somewhere Else Tomorrow

Another moto documentary on Amazon Prime Video is Ride Report: 10,000 Miles to Rio which was interesting enough , but not what I'd call high quality content. These guys were missing a brain cell or 2. https://www.amazon.com/gp/video/detail/B00LO351VA/ref=atv_dp_share_cu_r https://images-na.ssl-image...

I just watched Daniel Rintz's road trip documentary on Amazon Prime Video and found it excellent. Pop some corn and enjoy!

Re: 2020 Kansas Dual Sport Safari

What an impressive effort and coordination with various groups and local government! Truly appreciate how hard y'all work to make this a great event. I've sure enjoyed it in the past!

Re: KTM EXC 500 opinions

xrnut now owns my 2013 500 EXC. I stole his 2014 300 EXC in trade. I had no overheating issues. I used my Mojave bag on the rear without issue. I had issues with the bike smoking a little even though it ran perfect and had great compression. Therefore, assumed valve guides and had a professional reb...

Re: 2020 Kansas Dual Sport Safari

I've always been on vacation when this has been going on. Troy have you been? I think Birdman has. I rode 1 day of one of the events, so I did not get to experience the whole thing. It's a very well organized, fun, and friendly event. It is relatively unique in that it has had access to private off...

Is this it? Ark 500: https://advrider.com/f/threads/arkansas ... 0.1424470/
Yes, and thank you! Turns out it was just an extra space at the end of the URL. Fixed.

Re: Spring rides in MO, ARK, OK

Super helpful, Creekside! Some notes: FIXED : The AdvRider link for Arkansas 500 is broken. If you can find the correct URL, update your post. It's the MTRA Show Me 200 -- not 500. :) This has typically been a dirtbike-oriented "dualsport" with tons of single-track. Love it! Your link and dates are ...

Wonder Escape Series

A show I stumbled onto that I really enjoy is called " Escape ". It's on YouTube. Each episode simulates a wreck in a remote part of the world. The team of 6 has only enough food and water for about 6 days. In that time they have to figure out how to engineer an escape vehicle out of the wreckage. A...

Re: Sun Feb 2: Randolph

"no dust". Indeed, dust was not an issue. Mud, however....took an impressive amount of time and effort to clean the bike after that. Good times indeed!

Thanks for leading Torin & I on the "hidden" single-track and for your terrible shortcuts. You make everything look pretty easy on that trials bike!

Sun Feb 2: Randolph

YES, I know it's Superb Owl Sunday. Don't care. Want some sunshine and 2-stroke time. 65 & sunny at Randolph tomorrow. I'm 80% sure I'm going as of right now. That can change.

Re: Kansas Rally Team to the Sonora Rally 2020

Jared made a great video! It looks like his nav tower is all hung off the handlebars which means all that weight is part of the steering?! When I look at the pro rally bikes, the nav tower does not turn with the bars. Correct?

Some of you have been following Lyndon Poskitt's "Races 2 Places" adventures for the last couple years. He is currently racing in the Africa Eco race and built a team of 5 riders including himself.
