It looks like all of Alan’s hard work trying to coerce Larry into joining the DMC group has finally paid off! Here is Larry, new newest member of DasMotoClub with his new Suzuki 2012 DL 650A V-Strom! Wait, it’s not German? Oh well… we can always add some Japanese flair to our logo and name. Oh never mind… I just remembered, Suzuki is actually owned by Volkswagen so there… Larry’s ride is still German. =) Phew, that was a close one. Ha.
Looks like he’s joining the group just in time as we have about 4 months left til our Texas to Colorado two week trip. I know the other guys have been prepping for about a year so Larry with have plenty of guidance and help in helping him decide what items he’ll need for the trip. Tent, sleeping bag, stove, chair, dry bags, tool kit, panniers, pillow, radiator guard, lighting, center stand, Bark Busters, headset, tires, tank bag etc. Larry, you already bought the bike… Now comes the expensive part!
Alan and Larry out for his maiden Hill Country cruise!
Alan, Colter and Ryan just recently completed an offroad riding course near Austin and I know they plan to do it again with Larry so he can get some training and practice on some offroad trails. It’ll be nice to get out there and get some more seat time riding as a group before the big trip.
So now we have Alski, Ryan, Colter, Floyd and Larry riding motorcycles and me bringing up the rear in my VW Vanagon Westfalia. This is going to make for some awesome camping, I don’t think I’ve ever been as excited for a trip as I am for this one. It’s been about 15 months in the making so far.
I think this is a happy man dontcha think? Welcome to the club Larry! It’s a pleasure to have ya aboard and I can’t wait til July… Let’s do this!
