Yea you can hope into the forest off of Hwy 9 in Paron, AR just south of Willliam's Junction on Hwy 10/9. That'll take you about 28miles to Hwy 7. Just accross the Hwy you will see it keep going......another 30 miles or so of great riding to hwy 27 I think. You go south here to CR 12 if I remember right..........wind around a bit and you'll end up in Oklahoma.

Of course in between any of these areas you can loop around and explore a bunch. You can go from Hwy 9 at Paron, AR. into Oklahoma via gravel and only touch pavement about 10 miles or so.

No road.. just a "path" through the trees.

Funny how, even a picture leaves doubting Thomas's

Here's the Strom on a gravel ride in the Western Cape.


Then, in preparation for the BMW Off-Road Skills course, thought I'd take it for a bit of technical riding....


Hot Dog, a Jumpin Strom....


Stromin, gotta love it!





Great pics from the others, hope to se more in the future.

Cheers

V-Stroms in Mexico

I usually don't have many pictures of my bike, but we took quite a few on
this trip, so here are mine and Remarksman's bikes in the dirt:

On the road to Cueva de la Olla (pic - Remarksman):



Same road (pic - CrazyBrit):



Remarksman on Chihuahua 23:




Do bridges count as road or off-road?

Remarksman crossing the Batopilas river on the way to Batopilas:



This is me crossing the second of the Batopilas bridges (pic - CrazyBrit):




There are more (OK, a lot more ) pictures in our trip report - Trailer Queens.

Hart Mountain Antelope Refuge



The good: I picked up the bike last weekend in Tucson and rode it back home to Oregon. But I didn't get the chance to try it out on the dirt until today. I had too much fun getting here, flogging it over some of my favorite roads. And though I didn't spend a lot of time in the antelope refuge, I'm certainly going to come back here once the weather gets better.

The bad: On the way home, about 15 miles from my house, I managed to lock up the rear brake and did a low side in some gravel into a ditch. I was unscathed, but the plastic on the left side of the bike is toast. Here's hoping that Suzuki plastic is a lot cheaper than the plastic on my old BMW R1100GS.

Here is a shot from last weekends fun in the Blue Ridge Mountains...



Of course my buddy is pointing to the spot where I dropped the strom after his GS "just died" in front of me - no damage except a couple of scrapes on the Givi.

Take care,
Bob S.
