    Lake Isabella, California. 2004 My first dirt riding on my Adventure. Some real good friends lead me off the beaten path and here I am 8 and a bit years later, 175,000 miles and hours of smiles. Good times. I rode on quite worn out Tourances at full pressure on hours of sand fully loaded not knowing I needed to do anything but enjoy where I was.
    Thanks Nick, BIll and Paul. THat was an amazing trip. It was Paul's first steps into the BMW stupidity. :lol3
    His KLR was not long for this would. He was able to ward off the GS for a few more years, but soon the KLR flew off the pages of the Fleamarket into a new owners garage, and Paul parked a shiny new 1200 GS in his.

    It is not what you ride, or where you ride or how fast or far, but those you meet and remember along the way that really makes motorcycling more than just getting to work on the cheap.
    I've ridden my bike less than a hundred miles in the last six months. And that accounts for one weekends worth of riding to coffee and back. The bike runs wonderfully and makes me grin ear to ear and laugh in my helmet every time I ride it. I'm on travel and when I'm home I order my life around family and the bike takes the back seat in the garage.
    someday though we'll be back out there off the tarmac, and rolling along gravel and dirt roads. Setting up camp on a small patch of near level grass with a good view of the sunset, while the bike tinks and cools.
    Man, I cant wait for that next ride.:clap

    He kept begging me to let him take it out, so I finally let him take it to school to show his friends. When I asked him what they thought, he flashed the thumbs up!

    Hey, that's my old stomping grounds! I lived in Lander, WY for many years and my daughter lives in Laramie and folks live in Cheyenne, so I used to travel down routinely via the Snowy Range Road. That's an awesome ride with great scenery, fantastic asphalt and curves, and almost NO traffic (like most Wyoming mountain roads :nod). My son rode with me once on my RT so we stopped for a photo op:

    I live in west-central Virginia now; my house is down there about where my helmet is. The mountain is ~ one mile west of the house and almost 2000 feet higher:

    The mountains here aren't as big as the Rockies, but they are real mountains and offer lots of great riding!

    My hands get cold in the upper 20's (F). I would definitely need heated gloves if I had to ride in temps as cold as yours.
