One of my favorite GS pics. Posted this once in Ride Reports, but the mods were quick to delete it. I guess its too controversial. Is showing a GS on a curvy dirt road wrong?

I had fun.

Aside from one mishap where I failed in rule number 1 (always look where you want to go) and invoked the counterpart (you will go where you look), I was able to ride plenty of stuff that I would not have tried without company, including one rut/log combo that I'm still not sure how I rode out of it. In the thread on the ride, I recognized that taking the two-day off-road course offered by Max BMW (based on the same curriculum as taught at the BMW Performance Center and taught by Bill Conger, who instructs there) really helped—without the two days of instruction and time working on the skills, I never would've managed to pull off what I did in the DARC ride (shown in the photos).

Now I just need to figure out how to get a little more riding in before the snow (and salt) flies....

The Col de Tende (Colle di Tenda)? Wow, it's a small world. My family owns a house a few kilometers from there, down in the Val Casterino. It's been built by my great-grand mother at the beginning of last century, and my brother and sisters and cousins and little cousins still go there every summer, all the way from Bordeaux and Milano and Paris. I used to spend much of my summer vacations at that secluded place (at the time) when I was young. And I dream of one day ride the road we drove from Nice to Val Casterino when we were kids. And, yes, ride the Colle di Tenda and its tunnel. Did you enjoy Piemonte?
