I’m thinking the same thing

Just returned from a trip from Cherokee, NC to Point Royal, VA riding the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Skyway in Shenandoah National Park. 2,422 miles roundtrip from my home base in southwest Florida.
My brother-in-law and I just completed a 2,000 mile trip on the s10's that included the south half of the COBDR, some other passes in CO, and southern Utah. The bikes were amazing!
Black Bear Pass
I'm looking at these same handguards. I've read good and bad reports. Some of the Africa Twin owners have had problems. How are they working out for you?
Did you ride all of Black Bear pass on Super Teneres?
They're solid and fit perfectly, can't see anything to complain about.
Yes, this is just when he is starting down the steps, that part was a lot of work on the big bikes.
Wow, amazing but you do what you have to do
BTW, is that your red Dodge in the back with the popup camper?
I would like to see a better photo, are you happy with the truck? is that a 3500?
I'm thinking of getting a 2500 RAM or Silverado 2500, can't decide
I did it on a 250 and it was hard. You deserve a trophy. Of course, when we got to the steps it was raining.
Here's my 2011 with 45K miles
You guys are some bad dudes... Been down it twice on my Husky, the second time I cleaned the steps (proud moment). I'm not nearly strong enough physically to do it on the Tenere.
Yes, '06 Ram 3500 with FourWheelCampers Hawk. It's a great setup that lets you camp comfortably anywhere you can safety take the truck. Didn't have to do anything to the suspension and I like the mechanical/packaging simplicity of the Cummins over the V8 diesels. I'll flip 100k miles on the trip to Moab in a couple weeks and will camp one night on the White Rim Trail. I'll PM some pics.
Nice video of the scary part, really shows how close and sever the drop off is all along the steps! We had rode BB and Imogene a few years ago on the DRZ's and didn't remember them being too difficult so we thought they would be fun to try on this trip with the s10's, but they were both SO much harder and more work on the big bikes. My brother-in-law dropped his in one spot coming down Imogene, but was able to pick it up himself. We were bushed when we got back to camp!
Why did you stop there? (I would have had to stop to change my shorts.)
IMO, Imogene is almost as hard overall as BB. Again, big props for taking a 600lb bike there.
I take a lot of pics and went back to get my friends coming down. Pics here: http://advrider.com/index.php?threa...s-september-2015.1119808/page-2#post-28572373
Impressive! Did a rider tackle that trail with a ST? Is it at the bottom of the gully? Lol!
Holy cow, apparently I have downhill-phobia.
How do I like x100?
Lookin' great - especially considering I have a pic of that bike somewhere in a slightly modified condition.
Wow. Was handling adversely affected by having basketball-sized cajones pushed against the tank?
Maybe it offset the pea-sized brains that thought just dropping the luggage to ride unloaded would make it a pretty easy loop...
Just got home from running from blizzards out in Wyoming.
