Not really an official ride report, yet my first time posting pics here, as well as the first time out with the new adventure bike or whatever you call it. After years of hiking, camping, and also riding cruisers long distance I decided to embark on this side of riding and combine my favorite types of exploring. In and around Pisgah National forest on dirt roads, jeep trails, and combining forest service roads. Not bad. Oh, and a pic of me losing some gear and having to hike back about 1/2 mile to retrieve. Rookie mistake.
