Skyclad's Wanderings

I really enjoy the Day-in-the-life-of threads. Figured that I would do my part to entertain the inmates and share my little corner of the world.





I think I will start by going back a few years to the day I brought the Ulysses home.



Great bike that carried me to lots of wonderful places around the state...

Along comes Katie

Folks that know me know that I would often take the Ulysses in places Erik never intended it to go. I really needed something to get a dirty with. So along came Katie.

The death of Ulysses

Little did I know that this was to be one of the last pictures I would take of Ulysses.



Went down on the Saturday ride at the BWDR Fall Gathering last year.

Doesn't look too bad in this picture


But the more serious damage starts to become evident on close inspection




Bent front wheel, forks, rear subframe etc etc etc. Yeah, she was totalled, but at least I walked away with no injuries. The helmet certainly did its job.

Introducing Mattie

If one looked at my profile, it mentioned that I wouldn't mind having a KTM Adventure in my garage. So it only made sense that when I killed Ulysses, she would be replaced by a bit of orange.















And I even got to keep the plate. Prophetic perhaps?



So, now I am pretty much up to date, and will continue this thread as I continue to explore. Lots of interesting stuff out there.

Have you hit the tons of dirt roads crisscrossing the area around and to the north of me yet?

I have been up there a few times on the Uly, but really have not explored the area . . . yet.

Anything that on a map makes you wonder why they didn't route the nearest major road that way as it's a shorter distance is a good candidate.
Also, I highly recommend River Road from the PA side of the Delaware next to Narrowsburg up to Equinunk. It starts off pavement but it's narrow and very much like a roller coaster. It turns dirt after awhile and the last bit is kinda hairy for something that is supposed to be a road.
