NEK NO MASK DUAL SPORT RIDE !!

Post by xr-nut »

Does any one on here ride anymore? I know a few do, I see some social media posts proving it! The rest of you are radio silence! ( this was mostly aimed at myself, I have been out of the loop for awhile with this business en-devour)

So, I'm tossing this ride out there, lets see if there is any interest. As of now, the date is negotiable. Let's look at the first Saturday in October, the 3rd. Planned route as of right now starts at Lentz Express in Horton KS. Plenty of street parking for those who would haul in and gas/food/drink for all of us. I have attached the tentative route morning portion, with a lunch stop planned for the Frosty Queen in Falls City NE. From there we will zig back south through brown county to Horton. I think around 165 miles, the majority is un-improved dirt roads with a few gravel roads to connect. There is a nice section of smooth twisty pavement right before lunch that I have on the route map that can be switched up easily should the crew be all knobbies and want to stay off the road. Big bike friendly.

If there is time and those on the ride wish, there is a 4-state lookout in Whitecloud KS that is worth a look. It would add 10-15 miles and could be done on pavement to speed it up. That portion is not on the route map below, but would be added at the intersection of 330th and Plumtree.

Let's hear who's in! @safiri @troy @gagnaou @hankmoody @birdman @stu @harveymushman @daryl

edit- route is complete. I would estimate that 75%+ of the route is dirt roads. If it rains the day before I will cancel the ride. two days before would be perfect unless it is a biblical rain. there are a few roads that I added last weekend that may be a challenge on a big bike depending on skill and your willingness to push your boundaries.

I like your title ,and yes some of us are still riding.
That is an area I would like to see not been off the highway much in that area, There is a possibility I could do it, will see as time gets closer.

I would love to join, but right now I am trying to potentially reschedule a rally navigation school weekend and I cannot get my fellow teammates to tell me a date that would work for them! Let me go and hunt them down and I'll be back... ;-)

Won't be able to make it. I'll be on a dual sport ride then heading from Telluride to Moab that day. The next weekend it is up the Kokopelli trail.

I think I should be able to make it. Will you be riding your 950 or your 500 Joe?
