I just found out that I recorded everything today in WVGA mode... Well I guess I won't have to worry about filling up my hard drive.

WVGA? West Virginia Grade aperture?

Maybe the switch flipped while your bike was chasing you down that uphill. . .

Had a great time town at the ranch. Like to have stayed longer, but it really started to turn to slop after 1pm. That was a peculiar compound of mud - hard to wash off. Is that place next to a hog farm?

Nice little place to ride - a great place for a rookie, especially for bikes under 500 lb. A good variety of ups and downs, turns, trees and a little water (or ice). A little pig sh*t.

It was nice to meet Nunzio, Zach, Buildit, et al. Too bad more guys didn't make it. I would be great to put a bigger group together later this Spring. Maybe some beverages afterwords for us trailer trash.

Anyone else get some weird GPS directions heading out? I did.

Maybe I'll get a chance to ride with you guys again - Bob

Good to meet some new faces also. Since I'm local I hope to make it a hot spot when the weather gets better. I even talked to Kim about letting us use it as part of the Tour De Flatsville with the RR bed.

Great to meet everyone today...I regret my morning statement ..."I wish it was warmer." Like Bob Ramsay said..it was way to slick and greasy once everything melted. It cost $10 in quarters to get all the muck off the Husky.

Thanks to the OH ADVR crew for inviting me for a ride. I DID have some fun, altho with the snotty conditions and a fairly limited trail choice (pretty small area) it's easy to run out of new riding challenges quickly. Some of the short hills were kind'a tricky with the limited traction, tho. I'll keep an eye on this space for other ride opportunities and new riding areas.

I chuckled at the "how do I wash this mud off?" comments. It took me as long to get the DRZ clean as it did to drive back to Cincinnati !! The goop was packed in to the nooks and crannies so tightly, I had to take the cover off the primary drive sprocket to clean the mud and sticks out. Pretty sure I could do a trip a week to the ranch and start a top soil delivery route to Cinti....

Couldn't go to Springfield, but I did get out today, but first of all, here is my very tough girl;


I first went out for a 20 mile road ride, took my acoustic motorbike;


Then out on the DR, the end of Cattail Road.




Out by Salt Fork, Rocky Fork Road.


Ralston Road, NW Guernsey County, maybe we should tag all these signs with ADV Ohio stickers.


Yellow Water Road, if there is a worse "real" township road in Guernsey County, I don't know where it is, guernesy and I went through here last summer, I was on the V-Strom, I would not have made it today, but a breeze on the DR;








Had my first time experience of going down a steep hill, 1st gear, no throttle, standing on a fully locked back brake, and still gaining speed. It's very nice to know that if things get real weird, you can just drop the bike and step off.

First and foremost, it was great meeting everyone today. As for the riding, well I was glad to see that everyone else though it was as slick as I did. It's been a while since I started venturing out off road again and I was beginning to think I had lost all of my off road skills from my youth. I only managed to ride about 6 1/2 miles today, but anytime I can get the KLR dirty is a fun time. It probably took me a half hour with my pressure washer to get most of the mud off which is par for the course from what I have been reading from others. I should have some video footage from the ride, but t will probably be a few days before I have time to edit and post it. In the mean time I have a feeling that you might get to see me going down in the creek from Buildit's video part deux.

Cool video!

Isn't it hard on the bike to lug the engine that low? If it was a 2t it would have fouled a plug.

Lets see some powwa!

If you fuckers keep posting videos like that, a woods bike is going to find its way to the top of my bikes to be bought this spring list.
Looks fun, and since I'm starting my midlife crisis mode, I think it's time I finally get a bike dirty.

If you have to have one bike, it has to be a Dual Sport, if not, you miss out on all the great riding you can't do on the average pavement pounder
