Sabinal River, Texas Hill Country.
Tadjikistan. Pamir highway....
Dang, roger that. I thought there was a hidden gem around here I hadn't heard of.
Big day keeping up with a 250!
Is this technically off road??

Were you able to try that hill climb or is it a ski hill only. I really need to stop in areas somewhat near me to take photos of the driftless area. I get so wrapped up in moving forward
I didn't do a hill climb. 6AM - 4PM every day I was herding cats aka leading guided rides around New Hampshire...then I'd be social for an hour, email for 3 hours then in bed by 9PM every night. So I didn't really get the DirtDaze experience because I was too busy 'working' for free :)
Off road and almost underwater. Hats off to the very talented riders that rode right through this. I was just happy to get to the other side (which I eventually did). FAR was a blast, 300 miles and every section was tougher than the last. We made it in exactly 12 hours through the 5 "B" sections.
Riders on big bikes do Fundy but it seems the opposite of fun to do so. I've lost that will to challenge myself like that at the risk of hydro-locking a boxer motor.
I was going to do FUndy this year then 2 of my friends went on the TAT instead, another moved away and Dirt Daze was scheduled the same weekend and I got involved as a volunteer but if I do Fundy next year, I'm trailering the dirt bike there instead. Great read that article! Would love to make a team of inmates for Fundy though. Looks like a blast!
Yeah, I beat the shit out of my high dollar bike and I love it, but I draw the line out of drowning it. If it's more than knee deep, it's pretty much a no go for me.
Light water crossing I am willing to do. That one you quoted. Hell no. Just not worth it like you said. I also won't do mud. I find no fun in getting covered in and fighting mud. I'll do some deep sand, but at least when you fall in sand, it's just sand.
Now that's where it's at.
It's in Oregon, to be precise. And I accidentally duplicated one above. How's this for a fix:
Anything from the Rockies west is awesome and where I will be in the coming years. Love that area.
I've been riding in the dirt since 1971 (Hodaka 100 B+ up through various Honda XLs and my Triumph TR5T Adventurer, now the GS) and this was as much fun as anything I've ever done. Now the "C" routes were not fun on the 1200, we pre-ran some earlier in the week and and mile after mile of babyheads were just too demanding. But the "B" route was a blast and knowing there were support people around let us push it more than we have on routes like the Hampster or BDR. But if it had rained I'd have backed off and just done the "A" route of dirt roads, and regardless of weather I wouldn't have ridden the big water crossings - I still had 500 miles to ride Sunday to get back home.
