    Kris was rounding to the nearest decade for us. He has over a year and I have over 2.5. But being retired allows us time to travel and ride.

    Compared to some of the riders on this forum, we’re young. I know Fred is older than us, but he still rides like a wild teenager.
    Bloody nose, broken fender, numerous bent foot pegs, and he is till going strong.

    Oh, you'll make an excuse to join us! If you don't take vacation you'll be kicking yourself in the ass for missing it.

    Admiral gathering ride in Garden Valley, Idaho. This will be an annual event and in July 2020.

    Moab. You'll kick yourself in the ass big time for missing this ride! So many great trails easy to hard. You'll wonder why you never heard of this place before. I give credit to Ron-in Boise (RIP) for inspiring us TW'ers to this place.

    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?

    Everything you say is true, Kris. Closest I've been to Moab was Blanding, UT. I was on the way back to Florida aboard a new KLX250 I bought in Montana as a fly in and ride out. It was a solo trip, 25 days, 19 states and 6,335 miles by the time I got home. That was in 2007 and your state of Idaho was one of which I traveled through. I will be kicking me own arse for sure but aging parents keeps my brother, sister and myself close by these days. Life doesn't always go as we plan, just make the best of it we can.

    And thanks for sharing the pictures. All worth more than a thousand words. You need to start a photo caption contest thread with the third to last one by the fire titled "What Fred Said"
    I'll start it out. "No I'm serious, this aint no shit!"

    Yea Admiral Idaho certainly is on my bucket list after watching yours and Larry's YouTubes. July is not really doable. I always have a lot going on at the cabin that month. We Michiganders have to squeeze in our cabin time into a very small window, and July is the prime time. Lol. That being said, I will be keeping my eye on the rides out there with you guys and make an excuse to get my Michigan ass out there!
    Cheers - Maury 👍

    Maybe some of us with spare bikes could "rent" them out to those who want to fly out but can't figure out how to fit their TWs into their luggage.
    Plumbstraight supplied a bike to LUVNOT who flew out from east coast to the San Rafael Swell gathering. I took both of my TWs to Moab last year to have a spare for me or as a loaner for someone's else's malfunctioning TW.
    There is a certain amount of trust and liability involved, but for those of us who are trusted friends & have previous riding experience together this has not been a big issue.
    Otherwise at Moab other trail motorcycles can be commercially rented, just bring money.
