2012 was one of my best seasons yet... time well spent on 2 wheels with friends and family:

Chucker's annual Kootenay dual sport ride:


Did a couple of 2nd Gear Club harescramble races with my new-to-me KDX 220:


Chasing my wife on her Duc through northern California:

2012 was one of my worst! Utah in the spring, one ride in the Crowsnest, and the odd Cypress hills run. Got a new-to-me bike, and promptly hurt myself within 8 km of riding it. Booo. I should get a couple more ice blasts in before the New year.

Seasons Greetings, BackRoader.

Those two pics were taken near "Herbster, Wisconsin" near Bayfield - See map. Take the Bark Point Road out of Herbster to the east, it follows Lake Superior and takes you to a small public access actually for pretty large boats. Myself and some other pie eaters stop there on our way to or from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Years back, me and the GF were vacationing and found the area to be great.

I do spend lots of time in Northern, Minnesota though,
typically staring across the water in your general direction...

I am about 6.5 hours south of the MN-Canada border but hunt and motorcycle up that way.

I believe we stopped at Herbster Park on the return trip from the NOFAR ADV Rally held near Sault Ste Marie this past May.

Jimtoe, 2Whlrder and myself... we stopped for a self portrate and nature break.





This may be the same dock, as in your photo.






Jimtoe with the ADV salute !!!

Dang brother,

Now there is a coincidence. I recognize the stuff in your images. Yup, Herbster.

That is great ADV country, east and south of there!

Since it's still snowing and we can't ride here...

I thought I'd revive this thread from near death...surprising there hasn't been more photos posted from last year!

Me playing on the foot of the Gooney Bird in Moab, Utah


On the lookout at Dome Plateau in Moab, Utah overlooking the Colorado River and Castle Mountain
