Nice. I had a silver FJR too. Too bad that blue bike is in the way. What is that thing anyway?

That's what S10's look like when they have round clean wheels pluric. You probably don't remember.

Just finished a little over 1,000 miles this weekend much off road. No dings, dents or flats!

Thanks, but honestly it was a challenge and I'm looking forward to playing on the water for a while.
And for sure riding the lighter bikes on some mountain single track.

Call it training pluric. People will start to wonder why you are getting so skilled on the light bikes all of a sudden. The extra new found strength won't hurt at all.

After the last couple of pages of photos with guys riding these things in more dirt bike type of terrain, I feel like a bit of a wuss posting these next pics, but this is how I use the Tenere, a great sport-touring streetbike that just loves to explore dirt also. As fun as this bike is to slide, it's first priority is about getting away from it all.

A bit of Eastern Sierra riding led me to a dirt road I hadn't been on before. Not sure what lay ahead I stumble upon this old gold mine mill stamp. What a neat surprise. I spent a good hour here getting a closer look. Things like this make me feel really connected to history, and even though our friends at ECV have a landmark plaque there, I still felt like I "discovered" it myself



Lots of relaxing two track to help me get lost




These things ALWAYS lead to a killer view. In this case across the valley I just rode through into the Nevada desert.



It's places like this that somehow make me stretch a 400 mile ride into a 14 hour affair .

I've never felt the need to hurry home.

Those brown cases. You just can't get that finish with paint (can you ~TOBASCO~?)

Top pics again.

As far as the wuss stuff goes, Bugger it. All you need to know is that if you were led astray by some KTM dudes you will probably get back.

If they don't kill you they most definitely will make you stronger and fitter .

My thoughts exactly, except I don't need any KTM dudes to lead me astray, I've already managed that by myself a few times and got back to tell about it. Amazing what it will do when you're willing to commit...or have no choice

That's sort of my definition of adventure - it's like growing up all over again.

I envy you. Amazing places…
I would like to come in USA with my bike once. I was in Idaho (Sun Valley and surrounds) and they let me a enduro bike, it was great, no restrictions like in Europe and incredible places.
I didn’t see anybody in the entire day!!
