Oh well....


Still had to turn around. Buried it even worse. Thanks to some old cow patties for traction:





Leaving out the next day. Should have used the center stand. The FIRST time:

Thumb Introduced my KTM to its new future....

When I bought this bike a few weeks ago, it was pretty apparent the previous owner didn't have a hankering for things other then pavement...which is pretty much why I bought it!

Yesterday, after a week or so of pulling all the bolts, adding loctite or grease where needed, torquing things to the proper spec, changing fluids, unbolting things I didn't want and bolting down things I did (I think a drill may have been involved, but you'd have to ask BoulderGuy) I finally took her on a 135 mile loop with a solid mix of dirt and introduced her to a new future of adventure!!

Took the wife "camping" for her birthday, stayed in a cool little Yurt, oh and after four weeks of ownership (bought the bike with 0.5miles on her), finally crossed the 4,000 mile mark!

Close, but this is a little farther north, in the Santa Cruz mountains. A camp called Double Bear.

Cool. If you have never been, Treebones is a very cool spot! The yurts have views of the ocean (when it isn't clouded in fog).

I used to live in the SF Bay area for 11 years and it was one of my favorite places around Big Sur.
