    These guys are our roots. They boldly went wherever it was fun to go. They pushed their machines to the limits and beyond. That is Adventure Riding.

    After seeing what these guys did on hardtails, I'll laugh my ass off the next time I see a KLR, GS, DL, etc, rider going on about their new, high-dollar suspension they had to have so they could pull off to the side of the road and take pics of their bikes...lol.:lol3

    Have you seen it?

    The July issue has a great shot of a flying Harley hill climber.
    Hard tail, springer forks, floor boards, and tire chains too. :clap

    The rider's position is "perfect timing" for the picture!

    If you don't get the magazine, take a look at the last page next time you are in a store.

    Love the picture of Dot, she was about a 100 lbs soaking wet and even rode enduros.

    A good friend of mines dad rode a flathead Harley from Minnesota to Seattle back in the early 30's. I would give a million bucks to experience the country and the trip that it was in those days.
