    I enjoyed the dirt roads on the Tiger this weekend:

    Although there was one on Thursday that was a bit too much for the Tiger - and for me as well:
    This was where I gave up:

    After coming this far:

    Had a flat later on that same day:

    Of course the paved roads were also fun

    There was wildlife to observe

    As well as modern technology:

    Plenty of great food:

    And who doesn't like meat on a stick?

    ...and on the grille:

    Of course you can't cook your meat without wood for the fire:

    Lots of fun around the campfire before and after meat on a stick:

    T's favorite camp chair finally gave up the ghost:

    I almost lost my blackberry riding through Dolly Sods - I felt it as it fell out of my tank bag but I thought it was a rock - fortunately I found it on the side of the road after a long search on the wrong section of the road. I felt so lucky at that point that I started to scan for my took kit, which I lost in the spring in Dolly Sods - but I was not lucky enough to find that. Still I feel that my Dolly Sods lost shit curse has been lifted.

    Due to work and technology limitations... I rolled into Alpha Oscar (Area of Operation) at 2130. But not before dodging Cattle and dogs in the road. Long day but greeted with pumpkin roll and a fire. Started hitting the Rockstar and Absolute... then hit the rack at midnight. Next morning I got up early and needed to make a run to Elkin for the internet and coffee. Then back by 0800 to hang out with campers. Most left at 0900 for breakfast but I used the time to add oil, gas, and a little TLC to Paris before leaving for the Lima Delta (Line of Departure).

    Took these photos after we got back from a long day of riding. Check my SPOT for all the fun places we visited. I'll post the base map later this week.

    Never underestimate the culinary skills of a hungry camper. Some of the best chow I've had in some time.

    My off road Tiger1050 exploits this past weekend made me poke around a bit on ADV looking to see what others have done to make their Tiger Roadie more dirt-worthy, I came across this thread:

    http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=771729&highlight=1050

    I must admit that the Tiger roadie looks good in the dirt on those TKC-80s, but I'm not ready to pull the trigger on a set of those. (maybe JaxO will let me borrow his for a trial...) Shinko 705s are not available for the Tiger 1050. Pirelli Scorpion Trails are available in the necessary sizes (120/70 17 and 180/55 17), and they are probably only marginally better offroad than the Pilot Road 3 tires I'm riding on.

    I should probably just take the KLR when the rides are mostly offroad, but damn I love that Tiger Roadie on the road, and it's a long ride on the road down to our favorite riding spots in WV.......
