    WetFest 9-2011

    I attended WetFest, an annual dualsport riders event, near Bend, OR, last week. Because of a bad shoulder, I wasn't able to ride my Dakar down. But I did get to beg onto several hacks while there! I was a monkey! This was my first time in a chair off-roading and I had a ball. I am now firmly addicted and will be looking for a new (to me) hack in the near future.

    There were three BWM hacks in attendance, along with a heavily modified Ural. I drove the Ural and didn't want to get off. I add a couple more pics to following threads.

    Another hack

    At 63, I am beginning to find that holding the 650 Dakar up while off-roading is getting to be a handful. That third wheel is certainly starting to look good for the type of riding I love to do.

    Doesn't get any better!

    Being monkey is fun! I am the old fart on the left. Mr. Cob, the guy in the center, owns the 1150 GS with a DMC sidecar. Ace Ralph owns the 1200GS with a Ural sidecar. He is standing on the far right.

    I have begun buying Lotto tickets. Anyone wishing to help me in my pursuit of a suitable hack, feel free to PM me.

    i like dual sport hacks.... i bet they're perfect for around where you are.

    there was a brand new Ural 2wd rig over at Blue Moon Cycles in Norcross last week... gave me ideas.

    AceRPH and Mr. Cob... now there are two scary prospects.

    Thanks for posting!

    Go soothingly through the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.
