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.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

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.

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
