    Why I own a KTM Adventure:
    Ride 500 miles of dirt.
    Sit a few minutes.
    Listen to the silence.
    Take the picture.
    Ride 500 more miles of dirt.

    Can anyone guess how I got this photo angle? :D

    He can land a 747 in Tokyo but I'll be damned if he can keep this thing on two wheels :rofl

    Sandwash Basin in Northwest Colorado is 157,000 acres OPEN to OHV :ricky

    [​IMG]

    That's 245 square miles of nothing but fun!
    I highly recommend it if you have the chance.
    This area is so sparsely populated you can ride single track and dual track for days and not see another human.

    In fact you are more likely to run into packs of wild horses than other people (and we did :thumb ).

    Everything you see in this photo is part of Sandwash Basin (and 100x more):

    Everything behind me is Sandwash Basin and fully ORV friendly. Bring lots of fuel as the nearest gas station is hours away.

    LOL - no doubt! :freaky

    The real reason I put one picture per post is because I find it hugely annoying when someone quotes a single post of 26 photos and includes all of the photos in the quote.. and then adds a comment :patch

    It could wear your mouse wheel out :lol3
