Ahh, leadville. Worked there a while back for a few days and was lucky enough to buy my Indian from a wonderful gent before I left for home.

Hey Geek--would of loved to have a riding partner--that area is sketchy by yourself.

Webster is still snowed in, and it looks like it will be for the whole summer. The switchbacks on the front side of Radical Hill are still snowed in too. I came up from Deer Creek. After my detour to Radical Hill, I looped around and followed St. Johns north up the ridge. That is a pretty serious climb. The trail is rain-eroded badly in spots, and the jeeps have turned over some huge rocks. Being alone, there was no option except to make it so I did.

I also rode Peru Creek (side trip to the very top of Pennsylvania Mine was VERY cool), Cinnamon Gulch, Chihuahua Gulch (first creek crossing was too deep to try alone), Boreas Pass (very easy but scenic), and tried Georgia Pass the back way towards Breck, but the trail was washed out and closed just after the Continental Divide on the Breckenridge side. Oh yeah, also did Keystone Gulch ALL the way to the top--the last mile of trail is pretty interesting. I sat at the top and watched a couple four wheel drive pick ups chicken out and turn around as the switchbacks got steeper, rockier, and narrower. Great ride!

Whatever.

After the Yellowpig ride I just had to wash it. The abuse!



Geek- I'd say you could do it but I don't know your clearance. It's rough and it seemed to take a good while even on the KTM. I saw a nice looking road on the Ruedi Resv side that said Eagle that way. Maybe over Vail Pass and head in back route ?? Nice area. Tons of sailboats on Ruedi.

The regatta was going on.. hence all the sailboats.
I've 12-13" of clearance on the sprinter (until I put bigger tires on).
Any idea the name of that Ruedi Resv road?

This is from a trip I took last weekend. I have some off road images to share too.

990 on the track

Hello.

I'm new on here, but just wonder how many of you have taken your Adventure on track day?
Here's me at Franciacorta, Italy, standard tires.
I always wondered if knee down riding was possible on this beast....and the answers: YES!Name:  _NIM3479.jpg

All you had to do was ask and I'd have told you, I've got my knee down on the 990 loads of times.

Followed by my hip, elbow, shoulder...

Awesome shot! I loved doing track days on my 950. Just bought a 990 Dakar last night, pick it up tomorrow. I'd love to hit the track with the new bike, but I'm afraid I'll scratch that beautiful paint job!! (Just kidding...)

The hardest time I had on the track with my KTM was my outer leg wasn't long enough to stay on the pegs when I'd slide out of the saddle in corners. I'd end up with my knee hovering just above the ground on the inside and my outer boot flailing in the air, completely off the peg! More a function of my short inseam than a problem with the bike, I guess.
