So if you have gotten this far, you can probably imagine how much work I have been putting into getting this site up and running. What a challenge, but I am so happy with where we are today. A couple of months ago this was just a concept rattling around in my head that just refused to go away.
My adventure in learning to become my own web geek has gone pretty well so far. With a little help from some professionals and a ton of time on my part, I am well on my way to making this site a reality. It is up and running, but that is really just the beginning.
Now it is time for us to get back out on the road, do some racing and see what everyone in the dirt bike world is up to. The road trip to Idaho starts next week, 5/31. The first stop will be in Minden Nevada to visit Dirt Tricks and check out their new “hybrid” KTM, this is a RFS motor stuffed into a new generation chassis. Looking at the info on their site, the process is not as difficult as one might imagine. In fact I can’t help but wonder if KTM didn’t have this in mind as an option when they planned the new chassis. I can’t wait to see how it rides.
Then it is on Boise to hang out with Davey Kamo and visit all our friends in the area, Rekluse, Pro Moto Billet, and Motosports. Thursday June 2nd we will head up to Idaho City for the qualifier. I think we are shooting photos on Thurs of some things we are currently testing, including the Husaberg FE450, KTM 690 and some Ohlins suspension parts from Trail Tricks.
June 5/6 is the race, the two day qualifier to see who will go to the ISDE in Mexico and it will feature a bunch of new routes, so that is exciting. Right now it is raining and snowing in that area, so the racing could be interesting. I have to make sure and get my mud gear together.
After the race we keep heading north to Sandpoint for our Selkirks rally the following weekend. We are going to get some great riding in for that too. The plan right now is to also squeeze in some adventure bike riding with JC Hilderbrand from MotorcycleUSA with the 690 and Beemer 800gs.
As we start back south there might be a few other stops that we make along the way also, just depending on who we run into. Regardless, I should have lots of new photos and web site material to share with everyone once we get back from this road trip.
Now I have to get cracking on loading the van, there always seems to be way too much stuff for these kinds of trips. I want to sneak up and watch the USGP of motocross at Glen Helen tomorrow also, so I need to get most of my work done today.
So stay tuned for updates from the road.
btw, I have a new story up on MotorcycleUSA about the Mexican 1000 race : Story Link
