I rode my BMW R100 GS on the "thumper dual sport route" of the Spring "Ride 4 Research".
The Wabeno event also has an Adventure Ride which runs you on 230 miles
of hard packed gravel and sugar sand forest roads, some fine two track and paved roads.
R4R is on the AMA - KTM National Dual Sport Trail Riding Series and the AMA - BMW National Adventure Riding Series.
The roster of bikes were a split of KTM and Japanese bikes mostly under 500 cc.
When Dale and I arrived at R4R, first job was to set up the tent and do the sound check.
The next item on the agenda was to go to the Farm and sign-up for the test ride on the KTM.
A track was set up for open field ride and another track for hero section ride.
Dale rode the EXC 250 and I rode the 450 on the hero. I left my camera on my BMW, a totally missed photo op.
L to R, Bryan, Ben, Jim and Dale.
Also known as Cannonshot, Benp1981, WI Thumper, and Dalejoe
KTM also had a 990 Adventure to ride
The ride from the Wabeno Camp to the KTM Farm was on a 3 mile Rail to Trail.
The trail went over a bridge or two and past some nice ponds,
Pictured above is my R100GS clean and before I changed the wheel set to the full knobbies.
