    Uhh, I can say that's the correct call. It ain't an Adventure Ride until someone's bike takes a dirt nap. Today it was mine. Twice ...

    If you like your speedo accurate don't get a V-strom. :rolleyes I don't even look at my speedo anymore, I know what speed I'm at by the tach and gear I'm in, just in case I don't have the GPS with me.

    Welp, another awesome day in the woods! Point the map to Danville and get going.

    swingset had said he was in. I stopped by his place on my way north to see if he was still home. Check.

    These rides are so much fun I can't believe we don't have hundreds of riders show up. Today we had seven, including first-timer Don on his V-Strom.

    [​IMG]

    It was good to see somecallmetim again - been a couple years

    [​IMG]

    alansZ400, z@ch and MeefZah round out the gang


    [​IMG]

    It took Meef about 30 seconds to get us on gravel roads

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Nice scenery and lots of backroads to play on

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Since I'm slow, the guys did plenty of waitin' today.

    [​IMG]

    Dirt and gravel roads in every direction. Awesome!

    [​IMG]

    It was nice weather. The sun came out and warmed things up a little

    [​IMG]

    Don's Strom must have some special anti-dirt coating or something

    [​IMG]

    A quick break

    [​IMG]

    Tim stops to adjust his shifter

    [​IMG]

    And if you're gonna go ride this area you have to stop in Peggy Sue's for lunch

    [​IMG]

    Among other things, they have pie!

    [​IMG]

    After lunch, some more backroad riding

    [​IMG]

    My bike needed a rest, so it threw me off and layed itself down

    [​IMG]

    Meef took my camera to get a shot of me with the wheel-side down

    [​IMG]

    Tim shows good form

    [​IMG]

    Alan too

    [​IMG]

    zach? well, there's a smartass in every crowd. He gets Meef and camera a little damp

    [​IMG]

    A great day. Thanks, guys, for waiting on me in the rougher bits

    [​IMG]

    On my way home, I got one more scenery picture before the camera battery died

    Next week is Halloween weekend. Time for another jaunt in the woods.

    Always enjoy your reports with pictures. Thanks for sharing... everything except for taunting us with pie.

    Thanks, Gail.

    My editorial review:

    1) Quoting from Le Mans: very nice.

    2) Quoting from Days of Thunder: very fail.

    Geez, I don't know how long it's been since I've seen Tim. Last time we were drinking home brew at a garage day, no wait I've seen the Guzzi, anyway it's been too long. Without the beard and it looks like he's dropped 100 lbs I probably wouldn't know him anyway. :wave
