Re: Grand staircase

I'll post my full load out in a bit, obviously I'm taking everything and damn near the kitchen sink but necessities are few. You don't have to get stupid with gear, they make all knids of shit to take your money like titanium fork/knife/spoon setups etc. You don't need that crap. Load out will help...

Re: Grand staircase

You don't want to ride the 250 the 19 hours of highway to Escalante? Haha, not really, but I aint' skeered, I've done that ride on the KLR. I'd like to see how the WRR handles those roads/sand compared to the KLR, but if I'm loaded up with water and gear, it'll probably weight almost about the same...

Re: Grand staircase

Where does the offroad portion start? I'll trailer the bike up to that point and find either a parking storage or ask the hotel if I can leave my car/trailer there.

I think you skipped a day after Friday 18th, Saturday is the 19th and so on...

Re: Grand staircase

That sounds amazing! Third week of Sept sounds doable. Gives me time to finish up some school work and prep the WRR. I need to get a bigger gas tank, still deciding on 3.1 vs 4.7 gallon, aux lights, and luggage system. Are you trailering the Jeep there or driving all the way? I'm wondering how much ...

How many are joining this Saturday? Will any new or newish riders be there?
Should be a good turn out. There's always one or two newer riders. We'll tailor the ride to the skill of the group. It's a no drop ride anyway, we wait for everyone at each turning point. Hope to see you there!

Good ride today, thanks for joining Jeff! It's was chilly, but not too bad. Really warmed up in the afternoon.

I have to adjust route, but it would have been perfect for Jeff's BMW ;)

Re: CR Chapter PreRide and Official Ride for February 22, 2020

So, I got the Daytona back, gotta head home in a bit and put the fairings back on. Hopefully everything goes smoothly, and I'll have it ready in the morning. Otherwise it'll be the KLR... Which developed an oil drop after the last ride... Maybe going 90 for long time is not good for it? Either way, ...
