    p.s. no more pepper...added some water a couple of rides ago and I can still smell the leak but it's not losing much so I've been lazy about doing anything more about it. :lol3

    It was too chilly here this week to feel like going out for too long of a ride...but a neighborhood spin on the CT70 yesterday had me thinking about exploring some local trails on the old DR650 now that hunting season is over....


    I steer clear of gates and postings but still it seems that anytime ya venture down a little nondescript quad track you end up at somebody's deer stand. :patch

    ...a food plot had been planted in this little clearing and it was full of big turkeys when I pulled up, look to the edge of the woods and you may still see a few.

    I wasn't really in the mood to clear a bunch of fresh deadfalls...uturn practice.

    [​IMG]















    This abandoned RR heads towards somewhere I didn't want to go...just stopping for a look. :D

    [​IMG]















    Same line...different area. :norton

    [​IMG]















    The edge was getting too overgrown with briars in places so knowing that it's a dead track, the center seemed like the better place to be.....

    [​IMG]

    ...had to stop and clear some branches anyway.....

    ....and found an old shack. :norton

    the bunks make it look like it was last used as a hunting camp :dunno

    [​IMG]

    It came out at some sheds and a locked gate so I figured it'd be best to get out of there.....

    [​IMG]















    I suppose it was cleared farmland at one time? :dunno

    [​IMG]















    ...back across the other side of the tracks it looked a little less traveled....

    None of those trees are too big around so maybe this was all farmland not too very long ago, or maybe it's just an old logging track?

    [​IMG]















    It just dumped out on a powerline.....

    [​IMG]















    ...but this creek crossing looked like more work than I was up for! :lol3

    [​IMG]


    That's all....doubled back to the tracks and where it crossed the next road I just brought it back to the house. :wave
