    Some two track in the Daniel Boone National Forest on the 950. Really looking forward to that taller suspension...

    That's in the Daniel Boone National Forest, and the gravel road that I pop out onto goes straight to where I was camping. I think it was called S Tree Campground or something like that. I'm going to try to get back down there this year sometime, because those trails were pretty solid and about perfect for a big bike without having to work too hard.

    were are you from in Indiana, and yea that's what I though quad width trails just right for big bikes and those trails look decently interesting and guys from many different skill levels could ride it with out to much trouble. I could probably pull off a 3 day weekend or something like that to do it.

    Nothing more gratifying than throwing these things around on stuff some guys would call "too technical for a 650".

    @godzuki - I'm down in Columbus. Yeah, those trails are good for a range of people, because you can go pretty slow and take it easy without getting stuck, or if you're comfortable on the bike you can wick it up and make it as challenging as you want, haha.

    @GoGoGavin41 - yeah, it's a heck of a good time. It's always a little amazing how well these bikes eat it up, even with the low suspension like mine. Every once in awhile, I forget that they do take a loooot longer to stop from speed than a little bike though, haha.

    More KAT clips, this time with a more well-rounded selection of scenery, and the other people on the trip with me. I know, I know, there are BMWs in the video...

    Looks like a fun ride. Did you do the whole loop? If so, how long did it take for you to do?

    No, we didn't do the whole loop. We had a grand total of 3 days to ride down from Indiana, ride some of the trails, and then ride back. I'd have to go back and look at the tracks, but we started from the southernmost point and headed to the northwest from there. I can't remember how much we did, but I think it was between a quarter and a third of it. Planning to finish it off this year, potentially with a 950SE added to the mix if we can get @godwinmt to sleep in a tent... :dirtdog

    @gearheadE30 How long is the KAT loop? It looks custom-made for my SE.
    Get any decent moonshine down there? Can you run a 950 on it?

    @ThirdUncle I actually don't know, but it takes 4-5 days to do it. We went down on a 3 day weekend, which means only probably 2 days of riding the KAT itself. I think we did maybe a third of it? The trails are posted here on ADV somewhere. If you can't find them, PM me and I can find some way to get them to you. Dunno if the 950 runs on 'shine, but turns out I run pretty well on it, haha.

    And because it's a video thread - just got done putting a few more things together from when I was still a relative newb at the whole off road thing. Clips from my travels around the US in 2014, out in Nevada. I'm never sure about putting music in these things, but this one had pretty boring audio and needed something to keep it moving.
