This is my favorite V-Strom pic of all time!
Here's mine. Somewhere in WA.
If anyone knows of "The Spot", here's my '04DL1K at the summit of what I'm calling Mount St. Spot (the first hill).
I went over Engineer and Imogene. You should be happy the passes were still closed.... The hard parts are at the top, the stuff around the bottom to middle tricks you into thinking it'll be a piece of cake the whole way
Some ATV trail in northern Maine on my way back from the TLH this weekend... unfortunately every pic I took is blurry

Here's my meager contribution...
Taken about 5 miles back, mostly gravel and hard pack to get there. A few sections of blow sand that were pretty scary when I was down here last year. This time I aired down the nearly worn out BattleWings down to 20 and 25 psi f-r and it made a huge difference. No drops and only a few foot dabs to get here.
The way home was another story, I took the direct route out and went through 10 mostly dry mud holes. When full they are nearly 2.5 feet deep of water with a clay like bottom. This time of year they are more like pudding and maybe 3 bike lengths long with 1 foot deep ruts where the quads go through. I ended up walking along side slipping the clutch letting the bike pull itself along the high and somewhat dry edges. One of them the tire just balled up and was spinning. Was a bit nerve wracking since I had no one to call to bail me out and ATV riding is technically illegal so I saw no one all day. I ended up taking a go around through the trees on one hole that didn't have a dry spot, it was all torn up snot from the last guys through.
None of the above looked like much so no pictures but I've been through before on my KLX and Sportsman 500 so I'm familiar with the sloppy traits of that trail. I ended up doing 15 miles or so of dirt and gravel, good times, I miss my thumper though for riding back there.
I knew it wouldn't be long before you would be one uping me.:huh
You've taken that Wee places that most people wouldn't even take a dirt bike.:eek1 When I grow up I want to be just like you.
No kidding, maybe next year I could talk you into going back out and letting me tag along.
I wasn't trying to "one up you"
..just thinking that you wouldn't have had any trouble with those passes had they been open!
In fact, one of the guys at RMAR crossed Engineer on a ninja! Yes, a stock sportbike with all it's fairings!!
Searching the RMAR pics thread for other folks pics here's what I found
...there's the Ninja on the far right atop Cinnamon...
...and again on Engineer...
...all the way around the Alpine Loop. How hard can it be?
Nice shot Burren Rider!
Here's mine in the Washington Cascades:
Punta Gorda, CA My long travel DL650 on a 900 mile 4 day trip with my nephew, his first ride and camp trip. He now wants to never have a car and just ride. I guess the trip was a success.
Haha! That must have just took the wind out of those GS riders' sails.
