    joe,
    motojoe missed the klr, until the road was tight and motojoe wheelied out of most corners. motojoe may be looking for a good bike in between the 400 and klr, perhaps the dr650 or the xr650l

    Motojoe has finished his shower.
    Motojoe will begin the ride report now.

    Motojoe went to class on friday(in mx boots) and parked in his usual spot. [​IMG]
    Motojoe checked his email and posted on advrider. Motojoe mounted his drz400 and headed south west out of chicago. [​IMG]
    Motojoe continued in this general direction until Motojoe arrived at the emperors farm. Motojoe built a fire and cooked a ramen. Motojoe slept on the ground by the fire in motojoes usual fashion. Motojoe awoke next to the fire and pput his pillow on his feet and rose to take a whiz a couple photos and call the emperor. [​IMG]

    Motojoe rode to the emperors house. The emporer invited motojoe in for breakfast and ride hints. Motojoe ate the excellent breakfast and talked riding and routes, did a tour of town ate again and headed south and west again. [​IMG]
    Motojoe saw things. . .

    Nice report. I love the pictures. I stared at the last one a while. It says freedom in a way that you can't get with a tent in the picture.


    Now I want to sleep under bridges and in grave yards.:eek1

    Is it just me or does MotoJoe like talking in 3rd person? If MotoJoe would have seen that Seinfeild eppisode MotoJoe would know that it could get him into trouble!


    If MotoJoe would like to come to Kentucky sometime, Jeff@TheQuadShop would take MotoJoe on some great gravel roads and trails around Kentucky.

    sometimes motojoe parks like the mutineer. All the riders I know in changolia do it. Motojoe likes to park this way to remind himself there are things he cant do on his drz, like ride through grass with hidden logs, as it was here.
