Bennett Pass

Here are some shots from my day ride yesterday over Bennett pass. Anyone that hasn't done this really needs to get out and go over this pass. It's a great DS ride, lots to look at, with some fantastic views of the Northwest.

A V-Strom is as much of a dual sport bike as its rider thinks it is.
If he just ran Bennett Pass, then his V-Strom is definitely a proper Dual Sport

Nice ride, JJ. I love that road !!

Quiet now, it doesn't know it's a street bike.

I have been wanting to do that road for a long time. I've been hearing about it for a long time and now after going across it, words don't really do much justice. This is one that you just have to go experience for yourself. It was a blast.

a bike is what you make it. ( or how crazy you want to get on it )

Never improved, never a spec of gravel added,...
...just another 80yr old road on the edge of Wilderness
