    One word:
    scooter. :lol2

    When I broke my shoulder a couple years ago I was seriously considering buying a scooter and mounting the throttle on the left side so I could get out and ride. I was desperate to get back on the bike! In the end I just waited it out. My gosh that was a long 8 weeks! I don't want to think about what you must be going through!

    If you have to ask...........I did a bunch of laps on a motocross track on a fully dressed silver wing once. There's something gratifying about thrashing a road machine in the dirt.

    If you were all on scooters, it would be a hoot.

    Hi all.
    Looking at Google maps, it looks like I could go from 224, up 4610/Abbott rd, and go all the way to hwy 35. Is that correct?
    Thanks
    Mike

    If you're going on the Ural I'd say unfortunately no. There's a large washout on 4610 with only a sketchy bike width bridge across it, and riding around is tough even on a small bike. It sucks because 4610 is a great way to get to the mountain and make large loops.

    Pics of bridge on page 209

    And you're right.
    That's a tiny little bridge.

    I can't tell you the exact mileage but it is a good ride up and back. It takes a couple hours on a fast bike. There is a spot to turn around at the washout.
