Re: Around the Bend rally - March 23 - 26, 2017

I've about persuaded a friend to join us. He was a dirt rider on his youth, has a street bike right now but wants to get back into this. I see GS Motorents is no longer down in Terlingua, anyone have any suggestions or a spare bike they'd like to rent for the weekend?

If nothing else pops up I have a 1988 NX250 that is in great shape and perfect for a reentry rider. It just doesn't have suspension damping to satisfy a hardcore or 200+ pound rider. Current tags and tx inspection. Has a fresh set of unridden knobbies after this photo was taken.

I have a friend with a KTM200 2 stroke wondering about this trip. Would not be the ideal bike but is it workable for this ride? Plated.

I took my KDX220 in 2015 and had a blast. Vinny and I trailered to the east side of the NP and rode RR, Glenn Springs, Black Gap and back to RR. You can leave a truck/trailer in just about any parking lot in the park to avoid the long pavement sections.

I may have the 300 tagged in time.

Tagging a 300 is easy, if you have any questions holler.

Well the good thing is I got my bike fixed. The bad is I won't know my work schedule until mid march. I'm gonna pray to the motorcycle gods.

I'm afraid to ask how much it cost. As for the work, it will be there when you get back.

One very nice guy who I met on advrider from Houston, gave me a used engine for free. It was missing a flywheel, and had some parts scratched because that bike was crashed. So the guys at the dealship swapped good parts from mine, up a couple new gaskets and swapped the engines.
Total for opening it up, diagnose, and all this work in the end was 1200$.

And if I didn't work for myself, and had wife and baby to provide for, work would easily be escaped for that period. But unfortunately since November it has been very slow, so I can not afford to pass on any job that comes by.

Re: Around the Bend rally - March 23 - 26, 2017

Getting very stoked for this trip. Hopefully I can figure out why my DRZ isn't making spark tonight..

Peter I'll be there late Wednesday night, and ready for adventure Thursday morning!

Re: Around the Bend rally - March 23 - 26, 2017

I can't believe 6 years have passed since I've been on this ride. Had a car wreck a few months after the 11 Around the Bend and 3 spinal surgeries and a shoulder surgery later I wanna ride. Sold my XR after the wreck need to replace it fast so I can come play.

If anyone has a reservation at Hotel Milagro that they can't use, I will take it.

On another note - Triumph Tiger 800 XCX or Suzuki DRZ400?

If anyone is planning a ride on Pinto Canyon Road, I am in.

Looking forward to this, it will be my first time out there on the dirt!

DRZ400 - no question.

I'm planning on leading a no stress ride.

Also thinking of doing Pinto Canyon (maybe on Sunday).
