For some reason I can't see anything you're posting. I'll have to look later in my computer.

Yep, I can see them on the laptop.

You're in good hands with Albie. I bet he already knows every good Eating spot in the area too!

That's good stuff. I've passed through that area a few times on trips up to the BRP.

After recovering from bronchitis and sinus infection I signed up for the Broxton Bridge Dual Sport ride. I didn't know what to expect but a couple things were sure:

Sue needed different tires for the event so after extensive reading the general consensus took me to the Dunlop D606





Sue needed to be driven -not ridden, to the potential carnage site. Found a couple ramps cheap and got them set up in a way that works for me:



The motorcycle scene is something I always look forward to on these rallies









You get to see some toys







Although sometimes the toy carriers are toys themselves





The girl riding this bike was super fast



We got there on Friday and got to work right away setting up the tents



The all important garage brought in by GI_JO_NATHAN



We geared up and sampled one of the single track sections :OMG: Man, it was tight. I had never been to an event like this and even though I saw a couple videos, it completely caught me by surprise. To add insult to injury, my buddies were faster riders on way lighter bikes. The advantage of riding slower is that I wasn't close to crashing with the family of wild hogs that passed by.

On Friday night I met ob1quixote who was still sore from his accident. He was projecting motorcycle movies



We got a fire started, got the beer and whiskey out and enjoyed some camaraderie under an incredibly starry sky that later got some pillow-like clouds

GI_JO_Nathan, Grizzlyman, 400psi, 35xj, SCBob





On Saturday morning we got breakfast and got to see offshorebob (Sue's previous owner)



Rider's meeting getting started



I got ready to get riding with my friends but as soon as we got to the woods a couple of them were gone. Kind of feel bad for GI_JO_Nathan as he could have kept up (in the woods at least) with 35xj and Grizzlyman but he chose to baby sit VStromNC, SCBob and me. No time for pics except on breaks as I was riding at my limit and fairly stressed trying to keep up and not crash. After the first break I started to relax and enjoy the ride, so here are a few random pics











GI_JO_Nathan and VStromNC on the left





Action shot



Grizzlyman telling us he'd wait for us .



VStromNC, SCBob and GI_JO_Nathan



At some point later we met RamMan4x4



It was good to see another DR in there. RamMan4x4 pretty much rode with us the rest of the afternoon.





I hadn't seen armadillos in this part of the country



Something to be said about fuel economy: At about 85 miles into the ride I had to switch to reserve. After that the riding was mostly on sand roads. Talk about some sketchy riding when you're not used to that though towards the end we were going fairly fast on it. By the time we got to the gas trailer most riders had gone by there so we cut the ride short, went to town to fill up and headed back to camp. Sadly I didn't do the 600 acre section though I heard it was the tightest one so if that's true that was a good thing to miss.

Next day the two mighty DRs went out on a faster pace than the day before. We even got to play in "the dunes" and I got the classic "no-kickstand" picture of the DR standing up on her own







We went back to camp a little earlier and started packing up. After that I did some more riding on my own though no more pics.

No bruises for me and no body parts missing for Sue so in retrospect I think I was too careful. Not a bad thing when you start building your off road background right after you turn 40.

Awesome experience. Can't wait to do it again

Hey Pete, sorry you had to leave early, hope all is well with your kid.
The boots sort of worked out...Jonathan's boots soles came apart and he used your boots and they fit him good so he may keep them. I may have a wide foot cause they were a bit uncomfortable after a while... or maybe I'm a wimpy dual-sporter and not a tough moto-crosser

Hope to see you next time

I was able to squeeze a little afternoon ride to the NC Gorges State Park. Pics from the truck of a lake on the way:





Met LethalDose AKA Barba Roja



Also met LocoMoto (LocalMoto)



LethalDose did some upgrades to his bike: tank, seat, suspension, tires..



I like riding at the Jocassee Gorges. Nothing really technical, no motocross skills needed though if you don't pay attention you may end up swallowed by a rut



I think the logs help the jeep drivers? They sure don't help riders



A nice thing of winter is how much you can see into the forest



Lethal's DR350 had a muffler redesign.



Nothing a few zip ties can't temporarily fix



At the gate to Musterground



Small water crossing but one of the bigger ones on the route



Looks like someone was sliding while I was taking pics



Easy riding



The Horse Pasture River





This time I went slow through this



The iron bridge







Loco's Dia de Los Muertos (Day of the dead) themed KLR motard. His Icon helmet has the same theme.



Riding behind Locomoto is always fun. He seems uncrashable. Vines grab his feet, ruts swallow his bike and he just keeps riding.

Good short ride before "the deep freeze" comes back
