    oh man, Steve, you know it -
    EVERY WHICH WAY you look -
    it's ALL so awesome

    dry camped under ophir pass by a running stream & all those stars - don't think any other place could've been better to camp
    33284.jpeg
    (ok well this place was pretty cool too to bed down for the nite)

    every nite was at a dry campsite or boondocksite in wilderness or a wet campsite in a "developed national forest campground" (aka pit toilets & place to get non-potable water) - these are just a few of them - i had the absolute best site every single nite
    33288.jpeg
    i'm overwhelmed by the mysteries & beauty of our world & horizons & am filled with gratitude to be in it & experience it like even more for real now on the back of a motorbike (even when i'm eating its dirt, getting drenched in its waters, & feeling whatever elements it throws at me)
    33291.jpeg
    so grateful for all i experienced, saw, heard, felt, rode, learned, lived...
    & the memories & emotions that will be with me for always

    i'd say i'm one darn lucky kid

    I didn't have any idea that Super Cross teams needed bathrooms redone often enough to offer you a factory deal. That's pretty cool. Learn something every day...

    So happy you got to enjoy that Sarah, I believe once one does it changes you for the better. Our nation has so much beauty and so many great people everywhere it gives us hope.
    I believe you are Blessed to have experienced that and hope you missed much of the evil happening in our country then.

    Yeah---my usual luck----------I'm in Montana hiking trails at Glacier Park with my sons family. Now i'm telling myself to wait for Kawasaki to stick their 400cc twin on a dirt bike frame and make the perfect dual sport bike. That's one I can pick up when it falls over at the dealers parking lot.. Did get to ride the Beta at an OHV trail system north of Jackson Hole.

    Heck yeah! 350 looks great! Looking forward to pictures from Hatfield!

    Congrats Mark! Have known quite a few people who've picked up bikes from them recently...seems to be the one plus of COVID is that 2 wheelers are taking off! People are getting sick of being inside and want to get out and ride!

    Man it's been too long since I have posted. But this will be good. So glad to see all of you out and about! The Southern Indiana Trials Team went up to New Paris Indiana last weekend and kicked some butt!
    Honorable mention to one of your fellow ADV riders..I believe it was his first trials event and it was CRAZY hot! Big congrats to Mike W! He rode the entire event! Several seasoned riders dnf'd. Mike made it through and I hope we have him hooked.
    Here are some results from Sunday.
    Intermediate 1st place--Cam Richardson from Bloomington
    Intermediate 2nd place--Bill Boggs from Castleton
    Sportsman 1st place--Hayden Baumgartner from Bloomington
    Advanced 1st place--Jimmy Zuroske from Indianapolis IMG_20200726_170745818.jpg It was an awesome weekend with some SITT guys heading home with some hardware!

    On a different note..if any of you want to get some off-road seat time on your bike hit me up. We have miles of all kinds of trails and we are always riding.

    since doomsday was today for me, figured i better get out & go somewhere yesterday
    so where to head out to when you only have so many hours of freedom left...
    memories of bbridge.jpg
    hit as many memories hard as i could in deam & tried to run as much of it as i could which is even more fun in the middle of the day during the week
    sure it is.jpg
    & when i happened on that sign, i thought, now that sounds like a challenge...
    that is, until i saw this sign...
    5 ft is high.jpg
    if it gets that high, i don't think i'm gonna be too concerned about taking it on

    & by the way, Mark, i searched high & low til i could find some mud to get into... i mean, legal mud... just for you some mud at least.jpg
    gotta keep reminding myself that at least my doomsday comes with insurance benefits
