September 2nd-3rd, 2010 pt.2

We’ve decided to head over to the Skibum Soiree and went to get directions at the library.  After 145 km and a quick bite at a grocery store along the way, we were there.  

Dual sport riders from all over congregate here on “The Rock” to ride the trails and enjoy an evening or two with like minded people.  First class accommodations were provided; a lush flat patch of grass in the apple orchard.  This is the 2nd Annual Soiree skibum69 has hosted.

When it came down to the machines, all the major players were in attendance.  We met ADV inmate MZcountryboy from Vermont who came with his friend on a BMW GS with a sidecar attached to it.  MZcountryboy had broken his wrist recently in a motorcycle accident and had to ride in the sidecar while his friend navigates the GS.  What a trooper.  MZcountryboy invited us over to his place if we ever pass through Vermont on our way back home.

Skibum69’s ride takes the prize for best in show in my humble opinion; a heavily modified KTM.  I believe he was planning on using it for either the Baja 1000 or the Dakar Rally. 

Skibum69 has ridden in a few enduro races including one in Mongolia

Good times were had by all in the man cave

145 km

A weekend of fun.

Not a rally, a soiree. 

Dual sport bike heaven.
