No power vehicles allowed on the floodway. Might have to go north the Mars Hills Area.
Good looking bike you have there.
The gravel pits near Birds hill I've been in, but just pick a gravel ride and riiiddeee. See a ditch you like, hit it! Hill you like, climb it! Just be careful if you're on your own, take the roads less travel and you'll be posting good places to ride in no time.
My riding most likely done for season...maybe in spring I'll join ya.
Have key and front tire sprocket ready anytime, manual I've gotta locate yet.
What @MFS said. Pick a ditch.
I'm Still a n00b by comparison but the first year I got back on a bike I practiced picking it up the most.
Just watch out for the dirt farm roads. Totally innocent looking, until you hit mud and sink up to the axles. Or ruts from a farm truck or tractor.... and down you go!
Had my first motorcycle tank-slapper last week thinking I'd practice in the grader's windrow. I like to think my skills and long practice saved me but more likely I just rode out of it.
The PR's had been in great shape this year, before the rains.
My KTM 500 up for sale.
Got an email about this today, looks like fun. Has anyone done this? If so, on what kind of bike?
Mark96 goes to the Black Hills frequently, he may know of this.
I rode from Winnipeg to Mitchell yesterday, attempted a bit of the Seine diversion. It was pretty wet, and one of the sections going under a rail bridge was well underwater. Didn’t feel up to that water crossing... mostly just rode gravel roads the rest of the way.
Definitely plenty of water out there. The forecast for next week is much better.
Nice Bike. out by Seddons Corner there's some good riding, tough to do after work, but on a weekend, there's lots of time. Power Lines by Birds Hill Park can be fun for a bit, and the gravel pits, and back roads are good for exploring. I like the Eastman offroad area off Hwy 1, but a bit far again for an after work ride. Gets dark so early these days.
That is a hell of a bike. 3 bikes later I still miss my 525 every day. Or at least the type of riding I got to do with it.
So...what was the replacement?
Those pits are dangerous for big bikes and also illegal. Enter at your own risk
Heated grips haven't quit over the summer.
So I've got that goen for me.
Long range forecast for next week looks ok for a fall colours tour. Heated gear in the morning maybe required.
Bought a VStrom 1000 on the east coast and rode it home. Planned on selling it when I got back but starting to really enjoy the comfort and it not trying to kill me.
Did a ten day tour with @cmattina last week. Grand forks to Vegas on his two dr650s. The plan was ride south to Salida CO, then two nights in Ouray to do some passes, Rim Rocker to Moab, White Rim trail and Shafer Trail, then store the bikes in Vegas.
Only rained on the first day. Weather ranged from freezing overnight to hot as hell in the desert. Bikes ran well. We hit five passes including cinnamon and engineers, did maybe half of Rim Rocker before running out of time, all of white rim (6.5 hours), and overall had a real good time.
Found a related website on the DAKAL, which looks pretty cool. https://www.dakotaadventureloop.com/home.html
There’s a recent ride report on this in the daytrippin’ forum.
