So what's an "Adventure" bike???

I was really fired up to see Sherrell and his Gold Wing do the ride. He backs up my opinion that what makes a motorcycle an "adventure" bike is the rider's attitude, not the bike or how well farkled it is. From my own experience on a bike exactly like his a stripper Gold Wing's low CG makes it a pretty fine handling bike on any surface and you don't have the problem of not being able to touch the ground like you do on most of the big-displacement "adventure tourers." You can pick up an older stripper Gold Wing for pocket change, too and while they're obviously not a woods bike they'll work great for the majority of the rides we do around Indiana--and a skilled rider like him can take them pretty much anywhere the big adventure tourers will go.

Thanks for joining in on the fun, Sherrell!!!

Great pics, Mark!

A couple of 'em made me laugh out loud....I don't recall them two Mexican fellas joining us at breakfast at the 'Pig, but do recall having difficulty riding a straight line after we left.

We took a bunch of half slab back to make it home by dark and when I got home my XR250 was sooooo pissed at me for making it do over 55 for more than ten minute intervals. A nice oil change and I'm sure it will forgive me though. Still had a great time with some great people though and hope to do it again really soon. Oh and I give everyone permission to smack me next time I talk about not having a GPS and relying on everyone else
how did you all get turn around and heading to tenn

After all, if we wouldn't have gotten lost we would have never met the meth head lady that gave us directions.

The Lap of Kentucky ride went along Kentucky's southern border and the roads down there were just great. If the Beemer riders down in Louisville do another one be sure to ride it. A great four day ride!!!
