    Wow. How many times have you done that loop now? When you and I did that loop back in September, I was ready to call it a day at Gray Mountain. Good to see you're still riding hard. I got worried when you were thinking of selling the little bike.

    Went counter clockwise this time, hate to get in a rut:D Was going to try & get down to one bike but can't imagine life without either one:D Fire started in Dosie Pit almost 2,000 & growing up here to the north west. Not good. Lots of animals in harms way:eek1

    damn....this is one marathon ride. you're an animal.

    i love to ride and enjoy the outdoors; never take anything for granted. my goal is ride at least 2 weekends in a month and at least 100 miles/ride. then, do 3 one-week riding in a year and go somewhere far.

    thanks tom for the inspiration.

    Very nice report and pics. Thanks for posting.

    A 400+ day on an XRL with lots of dirt roads is a pretty dang good ride. Well done!

    Thanks, I am on the opposite side of town from it, but have a friend coming back from a vacation that is in the closed off area. He has many restored vintage Harley's & Indians & doubts they will let him into the area where he lives. Not good & so far no real containment. Wind is really making it tough.

    Looks like great territory; thanks for the report. Also, long live solo rides - no waiting, no whining, no worrying.:clap

    Tom I built a bike for that kind of trips. I did a test ride yesterday & it did awesome. I'm tearing it back down for paint it so people will stop lauging when I roll up on it :lol3

    I saw this bike in action (briefly at each pit stop) and heard it and all I can say is...

    I WANT ONE!

    Great report! I'm hoping to get some riding in up north now that the heat is on here in the valley.
