Glad you didn't screw up your ankle when you tore those things up.

No studs, no chains... just stock worn knobbies.... Let's just say that after this experience, I "upgraded" to studded tires (sheet metal screw method) for snow and ice travel

At 10pm we left Aspen Colorado to try and go over the 12,000 foot mountains to Crested Butte (there are no roads.. you can't get there from here)...



We rode a black diamond single track until 2:30am and were finally so exhausted we slept on that single track in single file at around 11,000 feet.





We woke up to a bunch of goats on the next ridge over in fresh snow laughing at us

Just for this reason, the first mod on my klr was a center stand.

Hm I got one of those too...



Got stuck with worn tires in some abandoned and soon to be exploited mining area. I was glad to have 2 friends come over to get the bike unstuck!

Childs play

Wow, great pictures. Guess my little get off is child's play compared...

Front tire went out from under the bike in a heart beat. Guess I'd better finish the tire chains project.

If you wanna re-paint your bike, ask my friend Lute how to:



Morocco 2005. He told me; That puddle over there is just 2 inches deep, look me going through!

The mud splash arrived to the top of his head (1.98 m above sea level) and dried instantly!!!

Bump!

This thread seems toīve been dorment for way too long, so hereīs one of my mishaps to kickstart this again
To use an overused term: "It seemed like a good idea at the time!" The quality of the photos are appauling, but theyīre still funny.



Well, thatīs my kidbrother in the back. He obviously didnīt have the same surface-pressure-problem that I did.. I came out of the woods on to a marsh, or bog, whatever itīs called, at almost full throttle in 3rd on my 525sx. And man, that thing just started sinking instantly!
Just pinned it, hoping for the best. Didnīt work. At all.This was -09, my ribs still hurt at times..



Hope this cuts it! Now, letīs see some more - I just know you peopleīve been doing equally fun/weird/stupid things these past years!

Cheers / Mix
