    JENKEM...it's a lonely path:D

    Those are some good pics of Relaxation Canyon. One of the very first places I followed Hooli McGee and Mug to. Now closed.:cry

    Sorry to hear ya won't be out there Saturday! Like Lone Watie, I'll endeavor to persevere. Yeah the DRZ does OK at 75 indicated now, and is getting better mileage than ever before--67 MPG with the last tank. Way better than my gas hog KLR!:lol3

    Here's a pic from 3/16/08, only 3 yrs ago but seems like much longer than that. Exploring BW with emckissack, who along with XT Thumper has completely disappeared off the ADV radar screen. I bet Mug is the only one who knows exactly where this shot was taken. This place used to be a "hooligan rest stop" of sorts. Now closed.:cry

    I'm def. going to commit to exploring with you guys, since BW is so close for me and would like to see more!!! Everything looks like fire roads and trails, but just out of curiosity how much is paved? My knobbies wouldn't last long, except for short jaunts and connections to other trails.....Awesome pics by the way!!!:clap

    How much pavement ya do is yer choice, as you can usually string a pretty good route together and just use pavement to connect the dirt sections. Madhouse has a super nice route thru BW and Conecuh NF (part of it is the Robbie Robinson Hotshoe Route) that's ~100 miles and about 90% dirt. I followed him on it 5 yrs ago on my KLR650. Maybe not the best choice of bike; both Madhouse and JP spent a lotta time waiting on me, as I recall. But much to my surprise, there was absolutely no ball-busting or criticism!

    Those guys can flat-out haul the mail thru the woods!

    It was Madhouse who introduced me to the dirt roads of BW (thanks, mang!), and that was a real game-changer. Summer '06
