    Trailblazer posted that he wanted to lead a ride and I hate to miss his routes, so i made the Saturday morning MS ADV Breakfast and then headed out to meet Trailblazer and friends...

    At breakfast, couple of our BMW riders were headed out to camp and ride... If you look closely, there is a bike under the Gypsy Packing :D

    Our first rest stop on the Trailblazer ride.

    We crossed this bridge a few weeks ago... But we also had about 2 weeks of rain earlier this month! :eek1

    I don't think Trailblazer wanted to try to cross on the Uly! :D
    [​IMG]

    We checked the creek bed, thought about it, but Trailblazer said it wasn't far to go around...

    Glad I wasn't in the lead on this one! This wash / piled up gravel hump was a surprise!!!

    Overheard "It isn't an ADV ride until the tool kit or tire kit comes out!"

    300+ miles on Saturday and had to go for more on Sunday! Had a friend help me install Pilot3's Tiger LED brake light mod and had to test it out... so that means a night ride!! Decided to go move our local Tag around.

    Needed to get out and enjoy the sunshine today and figured everyone was busy getting ready for the Superb Owl, so I headed over to Shuckers to eat lunch and saw a post from BABaraccus, I mean babarnette. So he joined me at Harleywood, :D

    One of these is not like the others:

    So after Thunderhart bailed on us, the two of us headed out to run my Rez DualSport Loop.

    Okay, so here goes... So 4 of us met up at my office, some arriving an hour before KSU time. But that is how we overachievers roll! :norton (Supahflid, Knightwork, BradH, and myself)

    My camera was in my tank bag when exited the office, strapped my large Wolfman duffle on the Tiger, and the other 3 were ready to roll, so I never got camera out. We headed up I-55 and after a few run-ins with certain F150, F250, F350 drivers who don't like to share the road, we finally broke free of metro gridlock and hit open Interstate. Stopped at Vaiden or some exit for gas (I had not topped of) and stretched then flew on.

    It is getting dark by the time we turn off I-55 and onto Hwy 35 heading for Supah's camp. It IS dark by the time we arrive. To protect the reputations of all involved, and becasue my camera was still in my tank bag, no mention of any frivolities or happenings will be reported... :freaky

    This one spy photo was smuggled past security... :lol3

    -----
    So early the next morning, after what felt like 3 hours of sleep, I hear Knightwork up and rustling around. So I get up and start getting ready to ride. Soon everyone is at least vertical and moving somewhat...
