    My roomate's 2013 Honda CRF250L was stolen last night from our driveway in Bloomington. Most of the rear plate holder stuff is gone, the rear fender is bent up a bit and has a noticeable crease in it. The right front right turn signal is bent upwards a bit, headlight fairing has zipties in it, all the reflectors are gone, last had one folding mirror on it. Sillver MSR Handguards also. Keep an eye out if you could please, I'll be searching Craigslist as time goes on.

    Thanks

    I'm just outside of Oldenburg,
    What I find interesting is how much I have been missing by avoiding the roads less traveled. I head out pretty much each week end and go out of my way to find roads that I have avoided, overlooked or simply never cared what was at the other end. All because I stumbled upon this website about a year ago and was immediately addicted. To answer your question regarding "unpaved adventure", my answer would be...it depends. If your looking for something challenging for a DS bike, most of what I have found is either posted, gated or blocked by strategically placed logs. If adventure touring is more your thing then here are a few photos of some of the more interesting areas I have stumbled across.

    Well we just found it down the street in the public pool parking lot. Apparently the would be thieves rolled in down the hill and tried to punch the ignition and failed. Probably the work of tweakers or kids without a truck...

    Is it a public riding area or a double top secret area that requires sneaking in under the cover of darkness?

    Dr has pissed me off. I'm headed down to ride some gravel and do some water crossings if anyone wants to join. Just shoot me a text or call 9376841556.

    YES! Adventure touring it is then! All those places in the photos are exactly what I'm looking for. Please tell me more because I have not ventured across those locales yet.

    Hi Crowbot, do you live on Grimes just off Woodlawn? My boy takes music lessons from a guy on Wilson Street and I always see two bikes over there on Grimes. I always wonder if those bikes belong to inmates...
