Look like you guys had a lot of fun!!!

Too bad I was not able to get on my computer, you apprarently missed the fun two track road I took the picture of. It was south of Lodi, N780 W as far as I can tell you were right by it!!!!Good job on the ride though, it looks like you guys must have been busy, did you ride all of it?

I am crossing my fingers for the D.I.R.T ride, hopefully I can make it.

We were right there. I guess we missed that road. We'll have to hit it next time when you join us.

Thanks XYZ, I had a great time as well, now that I can feel my fingers anyway. I went over 200 miles total for the day. Indiana has some great riding.

William43, I know your are going too try and blame that mud hole incident on me, but XYZ was the trail boss on this one. Anyway, I thought your were an old school dirt rider, you could have just gone around the mudhole.

I won't be able to ride with Illini Lois (Staples) once he gets a real bike and quits riding his girlfriends, I don't think I will be able to keep up with him. Seven hours in the saddle on that tiny little Yamaha, now that is hard core for sure.

For Once It Is Not Your Fault

William43, I know your are going top try and blame that mud hole incident on me, but XYZ was the trail boss on this one. Anyway, I thought your were an old school dirt rider, you could have just gone around the mudhole.

Bigborefan you are way behind the curve. I already blamed z987k for leading me into that mud hole.

I am an old school dirt rider, but I forget a lot. Next time I will try to remember to go around the damn things.

I didn't get you to leave any parts in indiana though, so BIgborefan must have done a better job.

Yes you did an excellent job. Instead of leaving parts I brought back a large chunk of good old Indiana mud. I left most of it at the car wash.

This ride was way less expensive than the last one Bigborefan led.

Lois On The Loose.....read the book


Bored by her desk job at the BBC, Lois Pryce decided to convert her travel daydreams into real-life adventure. At her local travel bookshop, she discovered a book called Jupiter's Travels by Ted Simon as well as a few handbooks on motorcycle adventuring, and she was hooked. She bought a small dirt bike, a versatile and affordable Yamaha XT225 Serow, and decided she'd bike from Anchorage, Alaska, to the southernmost city of South America, Ushuaia, Argentina—almost 20,000 miles.

Ah. Thanks for the explaination.

The XT is just my backup bike. You better be afraid, I plan to bring the DRZ back to life tonight.

that's a pretty good haul from here. It'd be nice if we could take some interesting roads though, rather than highways.
