I know my brother from Houston is going, with his DR650. Another brother of mine from Dallas is going with his DR650, I'll be there with a DR650 or a KTM640, not sure yet. Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Any sidecars going? Looking for riders who are not in a hurry, just want a nice slow ride...

There's a guy with a mad max side car. But he flys on it.

alphadog, I don't have a off-pavement sidecar rig ..... yet ..... but please post a few pics to encourage me.... I also prefer a nice slow ride. And I'll vouch for TwoSmoke -- good fellow with whom to tag along back out of the dust cloud .

Re: 2013 Texas Adventure Ride & Challenge: April 11-14

Not sure for sure. I have a motel reservation, but haven't pre-registered for the ride. Filled out the paperwork months ago- just don't want to send it in in case I can't make it again.
Ki, remember when I was following you and Rusty and you had to come back for me? I found a souvenir dent in the sidecar nose when I got home... I was too relaxed and my brain went into two-wheel mode in a corner- baaad news! Sidehacks do not turn anything like a normal bike. Do you still have the XR?
SwampFox, you were very helpful when I was investigating the whole sidecar thing. Would love to meet and ride- dust does wash off!
Dave, we rode together in '08 (?) when I had the KTM SuperMoto. You had one of the many KLR's in our group. I think you are a good, sensible rider- Mr. Conservative, like my hubby. How do you like Vlad?
I had just about talked myself out of going this year because I just can't keep up a normal pace anymore. And the flat tire in the middle of nowhere- I would still be there if it weren't for Rusty and Jack. Thank you both sooo much!
KLR Tug has a flat- again! Have to get that issue straightened out first- haven't found the cause yet, new tube went flat in a week...

Re: 2013 Texas Adventure Ride & Challenge: April 11-14

Yeah. I went back to look for you and saw you were way off the road. I just assumed the road was not challenging enough and you wanted to ride some rough stuff.

I sold the XR not too long ago. I wanted more suspension and got my KDX 220 street legalized. But it's just awful as a dualsport. So I'm in the market for a real dualsport. You selling anything?

Nothing for sale, unless you want a nice BSA chopper! Down to my last two bikes for life. Saw a bad-a** CRF450 Rally in this month's Cycle World. Maybe you can build a CRF250 Rally... be the first on your block!

Re: 2013 Texas Adventure Ride & Challenge: April 11-14

I'm in. Rich asked me to do a brief presentation and Q&A on riding the Continental Divide. So bring your remarks and questions. I will be focusing on logistics rather than precise routing questions, though I'll do the best I can on that topic. I plan on covering:

*what bike to ride
*how tough is it, really
*what to bring
*what not to bring
*general motorcycle camping issues
*what to do when you see the dreaded "ROAD CLOSED" sign
*Is there really Pie in Pietown?

I am by no means an authority on this stuff, but I did do the ride.

If there is no interest in the talk, I will drink a cold Bud Light.
