    Thanks guys! :wave


    I've been wanting to haul the old beat up DR up to the mountains and ride some seasonal stuff but the weather hasn't really been cooperating with my days off. Actually today turned out to be a really nice day in spite of a forecast for rain, we could use some but only got a trace.

    Skies cleared out around noon so I dug the old DR out of the shed and rode it to lunch, just make sure it still ran and all. :lol3

    'Bout time you got out and rode/posted some pics. :D

    Of course all I've done lately is ride mine to the grocery store & back a few times. Somehow, that just doesn't seem pic-worthy. :lol3

    Nice maples!

    Does that aux windshield on the DR do a pretty good job of keeping the wind blast off your chest at highway speeds?

    Shoot Mark, I only rode to lunch! :shog :rofl

    Thanks...I wish there were more like that around the area. Yes, that shield does a great job! :thumb I don't do many hiway miles on that bike anymore but I have in the past...like a couple of rides to Daytona for Bike Week etc.

    Oofda! That was great!....and I'm whooped! 149 miles on the DR650 and 260 in the Toyota pickup. :wink:

    I forgot to put new batteries in the camera but managed to get a few shots anyway, including some of advtenn's bike lying on the ground. :augie But who doesn't have some of those? :lol3

    You might have to wait for 'em though as I may fall asleep before they get uploaded....

    Me too...I mean, I knew the pics weren't very good but, so bad that they broke the host on a Tue night? :huh :lol3

    Things seem to be up and running again though so I'll start off with a few pics from 3 years ago. :loco

    This was only the second time that I'd ridden these trails...Nov '09 was the previous trip. The signs at the trailheads were all the same as they were then and since the camera's batteries were showing to be low I figured there was no sense in taking sign pics again. :norton

    The signs explain themselves....

    ...gotta love a pic of a moto with no slash through it. :ricky
