Re: NEK NO MASK DUAL SPORT RIDE !!

Why has it been so long since somebody posted a group dualsport ride?!!
THANKS, xr-nut!

Unfortunately, I will not be able to make that weekend or the following weekend work.

Re: Wind farms around Goff and Wetmore

I appreciate the signs, too, but the cattle-guard is enough of a tip-off to me. The cow pies in the road are a pretty sure sign, too! :-D One thing I've learned is when you see a cow on one side of the road and a calf on the other, there is a 74.19% chance the calf will bolt across the road to be wi...

Re: Wind farms around Goff and Wetmore

Seems folks are very divided over wind turbines. I wonder if the folks who don't want them in their backyard would prefer a coal mine in their backyard and the noise, dust, and traffic that goes with it? :-D On my adventure last week, we rode by the "World's largest surface coal mine"--the Black Thu...

Re: Riding gravel and two track from Emporia to Alma then to Scraton

A 400 mile day on gravel is a BIG day! :-o Box Turtle gated off now? It's called "progress". :-(

UPCOMING: 2011 BMW F800GS CHEAP

I have decided I will sell my 2011 BMW F800GS. I bought the bike new in 2011 and have beaten the crap out of it ever since. It's the best motorcycle I've ever owned. Over the next few weeks I will be replacing the fuel pump and fuel filter. It started having an issue 2 years ago that only rears up w...

Re: 12th Manhattan fun ride August 29th (social distancing rules ;-) )

Unfortunately my calendar says that Saturday is time for me to change my furnace filter, so looks like I'm out. :-D I actually do have a real conflict that Saturday, but am trying to figure out if I can weasel out of it so I can come ride! As always, Luc, thanks for opening up your home and land and...

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: 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...

Yes, and thank you! Turns out it was just an extra space at the end of the URL. Fixed.
