Since this is my first TAR, and I don't know enough of you yet, I'm not sure who to hook up with for the type of riding I'd rather do. I"m much more the dirt rider than street, so want to catch all the "rougher" stuff. If any of you plan to lead one of these groups, please drop me a note to let me know who to look for on Thursday.
thanks, rusty. No, i don't think we've met yet, but i'm looking forward to it. So far, i've done the east texas ride back in february, and the tunica hills ride last week. I'll be on an xr650r with oversized, clear tank and a fmf exhaust. Luckily, there aren't too many translaps, so i should be able to find you.
I had a lot of folks wanting black t-shirts at the Big Bend event back in Feb. As a result, I have had a new batch done and will be bringing them with me in addition to the tan shirts. I am staying across the street from the ride HQ, at the Sun Valley. If possible, I hope to have my truck parked near the morning meet spot like I did at Big Bend so I will be easy to find. Of course, if you see me any other time/place, feel free to ask and I will make sure to get you a shirt.
Lastly, I will also have a few spare D606 front/rear tires in KLR sizes. They are used, but they will get you through the weekend if you have a tire problem. If you need one, they will be free. I don't have any extra tubes though. I do have all the equipment for changing tires. I will also have front/rear tires for the Vstrom 650. I can't remember the number but they are the Dunlop DS tire. They are new so they will cost you if you want one I will help install it for free though.
I will be pulling a trailer with two bikes. If someone has bike issues and needs a ride back towards Austin, Brenham, Huntsville, we can get another bike on the trailer. I have all the straps needed.
