  1. Group of buddies were thinking of doing this, this year. Unfortunately, it looks like bikes are not included in the adventure raid this year.
  2. These guys have been doing this for over two years but have been getting a lot of publicity the last few weeks after doing touratech rally west. They hit the WABDR and some of the OHV parks on these beasts and have all the video to go with. http://
  3. Checked out all their gear at the recent Seattle meetup at the Wick/Motoshed. The new apparel is nice. Fit and quality is good. I typically wear XL Klim jackets. The Basilisk XL jacket was a good fit but wouldn’t accommodate under armor. The pants are a little unusual with the zippered extensions on the legs. Gives another 2” of length but really seemed like a cost cutting measure to avoid making tall versions but adding costs/complexity to normal. Seems like most people would never use; either leave extended or normal. Overall, nice stuff but not something I need or would want to pay the asking price. All the Mosko crew (and Double take) were great. Super knowledgable and helpful. Going to be ordering a Reckless 10 for my 350.
  4. FYI- snow level is still 3500-4500 right now throughout the cascades/WABDR. It’s melting quick but seeing lots of people having to double back due to blow down, snow, and deep mud.
  5. A couple other small discussion points to mention. This wasn’t a local event for them so they have to cover getting people/resources there. They did a good job of getting a quality speaker every year which I would suspect isn’t free and often not at similar events. I have always liked the event but always thought more riding days were needed. Cost has always been higher than similar events but more quality meals included... not $100 worth though. In the last 5 years I feel the # of group riding events had quadrupled. Event hosts are going to need to up their game to keep the draw/distinction for their events. As more of us meet each other and expand our riding buddies circles we also don’t need the safety net of group rides.
  6. A little sad on the cancellation. Was never a rally style event. The taste was the sand/desert riding that was new to most. And the first years having Jimmy Lewis as part of the event. A few of us are going to meetup and ride the area anyways for 3-5 days weekend
  7. Had an issue while in Sidi Adventures last year. Moved to Sidi Crossfire2's for most of my riding and love the protection. Unfortunately, comfort/walking vs protection is a balance in boots. My adventure boots have become my pure road boot.
  8. Just an FYI if you arrive early or stay late you either need to fend for yourself food wise, eat the tastie microwave bar food, or let them know ahead of time so they can plan accordingly. They also take $10 (I think) for camping extra nights. Meals were like $15. Bring plenty of cash as that is all that is accepted in town.
  9. Stage coach inn and casino in Beatty for wed and Thursday night. You’re ‘in’
  10. As long as you don’t bring your little toy you should have fun. Oli will be on 450 and David will be on a 500. Our group should be orange and blue. Extended weekend again. I think riding Thursday through Monday. You guys will like trying to keep up with our buddy Jake on his 950.
  11. Anyone planning to head to Taste of Dakar this year? I think I saw Eric Hall mention he was going to keep his 100% good attendance award. A few of us PNW regulars are making the trip down again for our spring fling in the NV desert (6th year for us.) Probably spend a few days riding out of Pahrump or Beatty before the event starts Friday, then ride the event Saturday, and finish up Sunday (and hopefully part of Monday) out of Gold point. Love the endless riding out there. And got to love the Gold Point experience. Hopefully with the event being later in spring we will not be limited on routes by the snow this year. Taste of Dakar 2018 on Facebook Altrider's Event Page Couple Photo's from last year.
  12. Nice work Peter and Mark. Good to see the progression from the tiger days when we first rode together. Well I guess Mark was towed mostly.
  13. Sold locally. Can't see a way to mark sold/edit/delete original post.
  14. Garmin 590LM $425 + shipping UPS/USPS. Good condition but is used (mid 2014 purchase) and shows some signs of use. Battery has never given me any issues but it is original. Battery was low when I powered on from 3+ months ago. Took a full charge.
