no grab.
Your bike is in the wrong spot.






I think I have found my next bike. It won't be a long distance traveler that's for sure, but it will be a dirt bike.

I missed the rainbow, but the eastern skyline was gorgeous for pretty much the next hour. Made it to Raleigh without hitting any more rain, hope the ride home goes as well.

Take care,

Matt

Just because you're putting knobbies on this thing doesn't make it a dirt bike.

Old truck on old bridge crossing the Eno. Extra points if you get the same guy and the STOP sign.

Update Guam

Still riding 4 wheels but planning the next project that includes an exploding volcano, endangered flightless birds called Megapodes, feral cattle, wild boar, helicopters, and cargo ships.

I really need to get my hands on a dirt bike out here. This is prime ADV riding country (and I've got the keys to the gates and permission to go riding).

This is what our work area on Guam looks like:

Facing East ->


Facing West (we have yet to actually get to the mountains, just been working on the east side so far...but the mountains are on our *todo* list)->


This is where I get to drive my 4 wheeled mule:




This is what I'm doing every day:


And this is the sort of thing we're finding - thousand year old home sites and other cool ancient schtuff:


That grass is 8 to 10 feet tall and sharp as a saw...It's called sword grass, saw grass, or razor grass. It'll cut you up!

Looking like I'll be here till late February or March right now.

Hint?

BNE might recognize it, but I have no idea and it's a lengthy river. Hint perhaps?
