Looks like a Fun ride,Bill
Thanks for sharing
i bought the DRZ400SM but probable i would have bought that bike because on the higher roads it has no 6 gear so it tacts pretty high for touring what year di that bike com out i bought my DRZ in 2009 i was scared the cc wasn't big enough but it probably is. KTM has a 530 but i was thinking the BMWF800GS is slightly more and its a lot more bike then the KTMEXCs
flightestman.. the WR250R came out here in the use on 2008.. its hands down an amazing adventure bike, I have no complaints at all with it.... for the riding I like to do, there isn't a better bike out there! Especially these kinda rides in my report.. a few times I got in some pretty tight stuff, but no problems on the WR.. and if I drop it.. I can easily pick it up all loaded down too.. There are a ton of nice bikes to be had... but the WR, once you take one on a long trip.. and discover the possibilities it offers, it should never be over looked..
I like my Versys but boy.. I'd hate to pick that up somewhere in the middle of nowhere all alone.. :eek1
Really liked your ride report, I ride down in that area quite a bit and it's always really nice and the roads are lightly traveled. What software are you using on the Garmin? I've just been using paper maps and it would be nice to highlight some of the nice finds.
I use Mapsource with my GPS.. but I use other tools too .. like maps.google.com and my favorite gpsvisualizer.com! The different topo overlays are very nice!
Not sure how I missed this before, but a great day ride just like I often take. Thanks for sharing.
If you click the link in my sig to "KLR Chronicles" it will link you to my ADV ride reports (the whole 3 of 'em). 2/3 are railroad/bridge/tunnel related.
I checked out your ride reports.. and there are some real neat photos you got here.. I really like these!
Very cool stuff.. I love me some trains & bridges!
Thanks for sharing too!
I'm pretty sure the trees are "American Sycamore". Pretty common tree. Very striking when the bark in the tops is bright white...
Awesome Rocker..thanks for clearing that up..
Very nice ride report! All the elements -- good writing, great photos, the moto and scenery, etc -- great overall style.
The BNSF link was interesting. I like your ridin' style -- explore and appreciate. Way to go!
Thank you for your kind words! I agree.. the efforts BNSF goes through is unbelievable.. while I'm shoveling the driveway, these guys have to clear hundres of miles of railways... and then flooding, washing away the ground underneath the tracks.. just really interesting to me..
I hope to do some more riding that involves trains ..
The tunnel.. it's creepy eh ?
is it dark there ? or it have any light or something ?
