This was my first ADV rider event and I had a blast and felt very welcomed! Good people, good food, and good times. Thanks to those that put it together. My pictures can't compete with recliners on transalps and Teneres burried to the handle bars but here is me, my girlfriend (she was a trooper on the off road) and Dave around the fire and my first water crossing.

Oh and some Giraffes we saw from the Fossil rim look out.

Speaking of DRZBri. Here we are waiting on Urals on the iphone eating 1145 loop.

Oh look, they're here and staging pictures overlooking the lake with a WR250 that just finished playing around inside BORP.

Larry,
Thanks for leading me to the Steiner Ranch road. That was a beautiful stretch of road and as you can tell my navagation skills leave something to be desired. I imagine by RTB V I will have this area memorized though.

Shoot me a pm if you want to do a street ride like you mentioned on Saturday. I know Matt would be up for one also and lives pretty close to you.:rider:

It'll be a couple of weeks befire I can do much but I'd certainly be up for it. The big bikes both need maintenance.

This was my second RTB and I had a fantastic time, thanks to Dody, Tom and volunteers that put so much work to make this happen.
Had two full days of paved riding with old and new friends; glad I could make it and hope to participate next year.

Hello CDC!
Thanks again for taking on the role of sweeper on Saturday and staying at the back watching over me. I appreciate your great attitude and it was nice to have you back there. I look forward to seeing you again sometime; hopefully before the 2014 RTB. Take Care. -- Doyle

A great RTB Rally. The new venue and roads were great. Thanks Dody and crew for all the hard work staging this event.

Be careful what you wish for...I was an enduro rider for many years back in the day:trust:
Well let's see it then! I met a number of guys with enduro and cross country racing experience. If the scale is 1-4, put up a 5 and let's make sure those that want to run it go together. I'll take the good camera again and get some great shots and video.

Oh, yeah. Forgot this little tidbit at the Stupid Early Riders Meeting. Watch out for deep sand on the abandoned road. Hey. Better late than never, right, Cykel?
By the time we went down I was well aware and had plenty of opportunity to wuss out lol. Plus I think I absolved you of any liability at the meeting anyway.

We definitely didn't get enough pics but here are a few more:

I'll be editing together some video but it's all crappy first-gen SD GoPro stuff. I need to get a nice 3+ or something.

I've never heard dual sport and trials skills used together. I can barely lift the front tire of the DR as it is. To answer your question, I've never tried trials so let's keep it doable with some enduro skills, dumb luck, and whiskey throttling!
I am good with that:lol2: Adam Raga I am not!

Many thanks to Dody, Tom, and the others that were working so hard at the rally this past weekend. The core group of volunteers did so much for the rest of us!
The location, the food, and the atmosphere were all just fantastic.
Best of all is the fact that you do all of this for Wounded Warrior; what a great cause.

Thanks to Ed Baker for encouraging me to attend the rally.

I made a point to meet as many of you as I could and enjoyed each and every conversation.
Thanks to Lynyrd, CDC, WoodButcher, Jason T, and Rod, for your time and hospitality.

I am a new rider - so no hard core dirt / gravel for me and I was bringing up the rear on the group ride I did. (you guys drive fast!)
Maybe next year we can do a novice gravel / dirt ride for folks that are wanting to try that or are new to it.

Here are some pictures from the rally from me. Sorry no action shots.

That's probably the first time anybody has said I'm fast. :lol2:

Enjoyed having you along. i wish our group was smaller then I could have spent some more time with you on tips and tricks. But that's the way it works out sometimes. I will usually break up a group that big, but i was the only one that had the route on the gps so I ended up leading.

D-Man, as long as I go there will always be a dirt/gravel ride for lame ducks:rider: The great SOG made it for me and it was a hoot!!!!!! You're more than welcome to try it out next time!!!

I think I'm getting a bit better.......I left my neighbour in the dust.....:trust:

Ghost really hit his stride with RTB4. I dare say it was the best one yet. And that's despite the trials of establishing a new venue. The guy can cook too! Who woulda guessed? The food AND complimentary refreshments were a real treat. Thanks for all the hard work Ghost, family, and friends! It showed.

Likewise, the routes were as good as ever. SOG and Veriest found some incredible roads with our new turf and only the best made the cut. There just wasn't a dull moment. Thanks to you two for putting all the attendees on the good stuff.

And now for the few pics I snapped...

Not a bad final resting spot. Just a bad final ending. Thanks Tim (Bill)... :moon:

Mrs. Ghost's grocery-getter. Notice Mr. Ghost is the one getting the groceries. :popcorn:

"RTB cares." Wait! It appears they actually do. :brainsnap

My group and at least one other stop for a Burger Shack breakfast. My cholesterol count will never be the same.

This guy thought the grass was greener on the other side of the fence. I coulda told him it's not. :tears:

We stop to inspect the Super 10's rear wheel oiling system. Yup, it's working well.

There's supposed to be a river here

That didn't stop us from making poor choices!

Campfire attendance wasn't bad given all the rain that evening

But who could miss the Burning of the Barcalounger? Bill didn't get to this one first!
IMAG0467_zpsbb79dfb4.jpg



Here's half the reason we do the WWP raffle: ShadySmurf. He rode in from Alabama and unbelievably made it home in one day. Even after late night campfire shenanigans. Thanks for showing up Joe!

I sent my Dad some pics and my water crossing video from the RTB4. He told me it was neat stuff but then I open my email and had this message. You got to love moms!
