I'm game. :mrgreen: 06 was a good year for me, both for meeting new friends and learning how to be a better rider. I look forward to 07 as a chance to meet more riders and to enjoy adventuring around on the bikes.



Greenville Peace pipe enduro, next year I hope to be in front of the camera like HC

The dream team :smile:

Exploring new places.

And lots of good laughs :lol:


Rides in other states

Events like the COCR Heavy Weight Dual Sport Ride

New Skillz :roll:

Old friends

Sometimes by looking back you can see the future!

Given time I hope to get a chance to meet more of you next year.

Mike this is a great ideal, thanks for comming up with it, and sharing your terrific pictures.

My first pic I would like to introduce Eagle Mike and Geneva. As most everyone knows Eagle Mike is the guy that designed the new and improved DOO. He and Geneva are a terrific couple that I got to meet and spend the night with on my left coast ride this past summer.





The first time I saw "Then Came Bronson" I had the desire to ride the Pacific Coast Hwy. as he did at the start of every show. I did it.


Here I am at one of the pull-offs in one of the Arizona Canyons. I love those mountains.



I was also blessed enough this year to be able to attend a few KLR gatherings. Here is a pic took at Tour de Pisgah.


And on one of my few off road adventures I found a nice place to escape the rain, even though it wasn't raining that day.

I just had to find some more pictures of 2006.

04-03-2006 I was able to attend a tech day in Oak Ridge TN. It was a cool ride over, but the gathering was warm and friendly.


There was KLRs scattered all over the shop, and most of them were in peices, but there was plenty of supervision there.


And then in May of 2006 we had the first annual TDT (Tour de Tellico) in Tellico Plains TN. There was 40+ KLRs present and a few off brands like KTM,Honda, and Suzuki's. Klr riders rode from FL,GA,TN, AL,NC, SC,WV,VA,KY,IL,MO, and maybe some states I'm forgetting, to meet for this fun and friendly weekend. There was a lot of wrenching and riding that weekend. even though the weather tried to dampen our spirits. I think everyone got wet, Marcia and myself just missed riding through a tornado by a few miles, others rode the Skyway and got over the storms.



We had the "doo drop inn" for the wrenching.


Mr Green Gene was there on Elenora,(maybe I miss spelled her name)


We even had an ellected official there, ( he got elected after TDT but he is elected now, Our own Danny 31.


Marcia and I saw this entertainer in Hellen Ga the day we just missed the tornado.

Also in 06, I had the privilege of being lost in the Coeur d"Alene national forrest for about 3 hours. What a weird feeling. I now have a GPS, and a forrest service map!!!



The whole time I am out there, I never seen a single person. The really weird thing was, I never saw any animals, no bird, no nothing..



And, the farther I rode, the smaller the road was getting. I had made several turns by now and was seriously lost


Shortley after that last pic was taken, I got a little bit of cell phone reception and called my brother. By given him a couple of forrest service road #'s. he pinpointed where I was at on his forrest service map and was able to give me directions out. After about an hour more of riding, I pop back out onto asphalt.........

Oh yeah, I'd forgotten about that story. That was a pretty good wake-up call for me. I'd often go riding out in the sticks with nothing but the gear I was wearing. Your story and others like it made me think about having to spend a night or two in the woods. I explore a bit more prepared these days. It's also made me consider buying a GPS! Thanks for reposting that one!
