After my custom ramp out was made nice and smooth. I used the tires to keep it from flipping over to the other side when I got it up from the right side.


Good help, without him it would have been a lot longer digging out


I damn near made it but could get the back wheel up the other side and then when I rolled back down in the cut there was no place to get a foot hold and down I went, I just knew the bike was coming down on top of me and got lucky when it wedged just right

You got to ride a little crazier to make through this thing, I wasn't 100% in on my attempt, I don't think I would try it again unless I cut on the exit ramp first Big GS a little too low without doing so.
So like everyone says : Beemers are good bikes
I wonder what repairings you've made..

Ohio has a few unmaintained roads.




Yes, those are ALL real roads in Vinton County Ohio. And while those are unmaintained roads there are still real roads in Ohio that are less than friendly too.

Hey, that's a fun stretch of road. I've ridden that section many times.

I've got a couple more... NOT crossing some flooded washes after some recent flooding. That's about a 3' vertical wall of mud on the other side of the first pic.

What happened to the collapsed paved road in Ohio?
Flood, or just completely neglected?

All those pics confirm my decission to replace my heavy 990 Adventure with a 90kg lighter 690 Enduro R - the lighter bike is simply the better bike, once the going gets tough!

Ack. I've got a TW200, and sometimes it's too heavy.
