Re: Watch Long Way Up

I've watched them all so far and it definitely make me want to ride that western South America area. Kind of like the harley's. That being said that is the last place I would want to take them. You couldn't enjoy the ride always stressing your range. My work phone is an iPhone and so I got a year fr...

Re: 9 day ride on a KLR

I know it's been awhile but I had a buddy working out in Colorado so I ended up towing both our dirt bikes and the KLR out to Colorado. Spent four days at Taylor Park riding dirt bikes with my buddy and three days riding around Central Colorado alone on the KLR. Hit up most every single track at Tay...

Best KTM service in KC area

So I have had a 2007 ktm 990 adventure ABS since 08. Put about 40,000 miles on it. Love the bike. Have had 5 or 6 other ktm dirt bikes since 2005 and have always done all of the wrenching myself. I got a weird rear brake problem on my 990 and I am about ready to swallow my pride and throw in the tow...

Re: 9 day ride on a KLR

I did the complete TWAT alone years ago on my 990. The route was cool but I remember the mosquitoes were terrible at night. Stayed in my tent most nights. Was thinking the black hills might be the ticket. Been there several times but never on a bike. Will check out the Advrider link and maybe that w...

Not from today but a week or so ago my son and I did three days at Ramparts in Colorado. We did all of the 770 single-track and most of the 2 track.

9 day ride on a KLR

So my son recently passed his motorcycle safety course and so i went and grabbed my dads 2000 KLR 650. It only has 5000 miles on it of which my dad put 3500 on before he passed. It has been sitting for 4 years in his garage so I have some catch up on maintenance on it first. The plan is to get it ru...

Riding area about a mile from the Eagle Co airport. Cool place. Tons of single track.

Isle of Man TT

Anyone ever been? Thinking of going for a few days this year. Just wondering if anyone has ever done it and what they thought. It's worth it I assume? I know nothing about it other than watching years of YouTube of videos. Did you stay on the island? Ferry over each day from the mainland? Best place...

Re: Post pics or video from your ride today

I rented a 2012 Honda CBR250r the last three days in Kona on the big island of Hawaii. Not the ideal bike for a 6' 200 pound person but I still had a blast and burnt up 500 miles while still doing all the beach stuff with the family.

Hockeydad and I did some timbersledding this weekend at Vail. Pretty fun until the blizzard white out on Sunday. We spent as much time digging vs riding.

Always liked this one. Tallgrass Prairie Reserve northern Oklahoma on the way home from a OSU vs Mizzou football game where I ran into Barry Sanders in the parking lot.

TARKC Fall Ride

I saw on Troy's calendar there is a TARKC fall ride the first week of October but I can't find any details on it. Figure someone in here would know more details.

Re: Chadwick = amazing

I think Chadwick is better than most people think (primarily Arkansas crowd). Lots of tough trails and tons of single track if you know where to look. Fairly close for us KC folks as well. Makes for a long day trip but it's possible.

Re: Post pics or video from your ride today

Took my 14 year old son to Chadwick this weekend. First time where a motorcycle trip was his idea. He moved up from riding his crf 100 to my 300xcw this summer and I got downgraded to my 300 exc. His whole riding style changed. Instead of waiting up for him he's now riding at a perfect pace for me. ...
