    On a work trip and managed to detour through northern NM. Camped near Angelfire and did some trail riding on the TW200. Pretty fun day but colder than I expected. Trails were completely snowed in above 10.5k ft. Need to start carrying some high altitude jets with me for the tW. It'
    not happy at that altitude and down to about 5hp but just keeps chugging along. Perfect bike for me on these trails.

    Well I hope you made time to go watch the National Trials event that was going on there this past weekend.

    Well...I did a thing.

    Rode the Panigale about 120 miles last Thursday afternoon and decided that I needed a change in my life.
    If I was independently wealthy, Rufina would have ended up as a display piece in my bar or living room.
    But since I am not, I sold the Panigale, sold the 640 Adventure and bought a 690SMC R

    Paulibiker,
    I’m nearing 26k on your former 2015 Red S10, not enough, but doing what I can.

    You missed out on Missouri, lots of water crossings and deep in the woods trail riding.

    I was riding the TAT in Colorado and Utah in September. Definitely recommend the trip to put on your bucketlist. 20210911_142306.jpg 20210908_194507.jpg 20210908_181415.jpg

    Hello there, my name is Thomas and I just moved to Iowa City from Fruita, CO, and am formerly from the Twin Cities. Looking for others to ride with here in the midwest. Just got back from a nice tour of the Colorado colors and itching to ride again! I ride on and off-road with both an F700GS and a KLX230. Thanks! IMG_20210925_103459.jpg

    welcome and sorry lol Iowa is great but the backroad riding vs Colorado isn't exactly comparable. :) Just teasin', we'll look out for ya. Were about 45 minutes south. I'm 99.99% road anymore, my son does all the off road. Occasionally ill throw the RS onto gravel.... but, He's gettin to me, and Ill be back at it as soon as I have a bike that isnt too pretty to ruin again.

    Thanks for the reminder. I just signed up. New BMW owner here, so we'll give it a shot. Hopefully, it's not as....errr...tenured... as HOG.
