My first gravel / dirt experience

I ventured out this morning leaving Ketteirng and headed towards Graits / Farmersville. My goal was to find Anthony Rd. / Lower Gratis Rd. in search of my first contact with dirt / gravel / "off-road" riding. I found Anthony Rd. and its one lane bridge. Due to the fact that it rained all day Saturday this gravel / dirt road was more of a mud road! I went through this @ 10 mph, this was the first time I have experienced less than ideal traction. The street tires on my F650 are not ideal for this terrain but I went slow and it was fun. It was a great experience and I now want to throw dual sport rubber on my ST, or invest in a KLR or TW......for Montgomery County this road is "adventurous"
