So what's on the agenda next year, Skinny-J?

Canoodia?
Every other year we go west; 2018 will be the Tour of Idaho (the T1):

Tour of Idaho

We aint getting no younger and I am not sure we are even getting any better so its time to try this bad boy while we still can. Best bring your big-boy pajammies.

The 650 will NOT be making an appearance on this one....

TBD, but last week of July or first week of Aug, 2018; training starts tomorrow... :knary:
This looks awesome. I just watched jimmy lewis' video and it looks like there will be some special equipment required for this ride.

Thanks for the heads up!
1. Hopefully I can find a trail around the slide.
2. If they are gating that road, it's illegal.
3. I can't imagine what's happened there.

I'll be doing the T1 next year as well :loveit:

T1 looks extreme.

Please try to nail down the dates before October if possible so I can put in for leave for then.

Great vid Janis!

You captured it pretty well. Making me jealous of last two days I missed out on.

Awesome video!!!!

Do you know exactly where that landslide is? Looks like I'm going to have to find a go around, another big rain and it will probably go on down the mountain!
Jeff,

First off- THANKS! Best dual-sport trip ever (and I have been on more than a few of them). Kentucky is a beautiful place. The mix of pavement and dirt was fantastic and the hard options were great. We managed to do all the options except the HM extreme and carburetor hill which we intentionally skipped; and the first half of Hard 5 north of London as we ran out of daylight.


These were the only issues in a 1000 mile route; pretty amazing actually!

Thanks
SJ

Yes, thanks so much Jeff. Like SJ said it was an AWESOME route. I'd like to do it again in a few years.

Thanks for letting ride with you guys! The DAMN Riders know how to do it right!

Very well laid out trip. The video is fantastic. Fun times had by all.

Like Phoo said, It'll make you a better rider. Man, he was so right!

THANK YOU!!!

My starter dying on the KAT was caused by worn-out brushes. I have 11,700 miles on it. If you have a DRZ or any other bike without a kick starter, you might want to check your starter brushes at home. That'll make life easier!
