Talking Old Flowers Road Trip

Took Old Flowers Road from Stove Prairie to Pingree Park yesterday. Here are a few pics in a flat spot where I could pull off (got tired).



My rig:



Only a few deep muddy areas, but I should've wore mud boots. My shoes got drenched.

Fairly easy ride, but still gotta go equipped. A VStrom passed me at one of the mud holes and a GS12 went by going the other way.

Perfect day!

So where did these muddy places come from? I've been thru twice last week and the only mud was going up one of the hills. That spot was easily avoided on the side of the trail.

Is there an echo in here? ...here...here

(Dave, I think our idea of what is mud is different than others )

Hey you freaking ashhole. I was the guy in the flat black truck you illegally passed when we got onto rist canyon. I, on the other hand, was headed out to Pingree Park to do some backpacking. I wish I would have know OFR was open though!

Not sure who that is aimed at but it doesn't matter. You should be well aware that when on a motorcycle, you don't have to follow the rules written for cars. The white speed limit signs should be considered recommended speeds and the double yellow lines mean ok to pass when safe.
