can we hold hands and share a bottle of wine first?
You are the poster child for radar detectors. Get a good one. Use it. It wont protect you from every ticket, but when you get the big one, like 114, and ya gots to see the judge... He or she will never believe youthful exuberance if you have been on the 2 a year plan for the last decade.
Awesome pics, didn't know you had a Super Tenere. How come you didn't get the faster black one?
He had to have a bike that matched his blue fur.
Thanks, I was struggling for a good reply, other than I jumped on the bandwagon early, plus I like blue better.
I don't see how a sasquatch like Dan could ride one. My wife loves hers . . . but she's only 5'4".
That's how I see it.
You trying to get me working on this thread or just here to harASS me?
Just harass you . . . but I'm sure you can bear up to the ASSault.
Got out on the DRZ for 50-60 miles of ORV trails this weekend.
It was really the first time i've been able to push the bike and myself a bit since i bought it last year.
My cabin (family place) is near the Harrison Hills area, between Rhinelander and Tomahawk.
The area is full of gravel, logging and ORV/ATV trails, running through county land.
There's also a handful of pretty good paved county roads and smaller connecting roads that are fun to ride.
Cannonshot has tracks for lots of rides, many for the CADVR rally, the NWAT and some other odds and ends.
I plugged this one into my GPS...
I'll need more tome to run the whole thing, so i just did the western end of it, as it starts about 5 miles from my cabin.
Most of the trails are big enough that you could take a truck on them, though a jeep would be better.
Of course, you'd scratch the hell out a vehicle, high center and would have to crawl.
The trails are really for side by sides and 4 wheelers. The SbS's all go slow from what I saw as the trails are narrow, rocky and steep in many places.
My pics dont do much of it justice, you know how it is, you cant easily tell how steep things really are.
lots of steep climbs, loose rock, random babyheads and sand in places.
Is that the section just east of Harrison Hills?
I messed up a few good pics, using a new phone and trying to share them on an app i dont quite have a feel for yet.
Besides all the trails up and down the hills in the area, there are lots of lakes and low swampy stuff mixed in.
There was a rest area here with a lean too and picnic table. Nice place to take a break.
Another lake i saw on the map and walked in to look at, a bit off the trail.
I'd gotten a later start on the ride than i'd hoped for and eventually hopped off the GPS tracks.
Jumped on a nice twisty paved road that runs up the center of that loop.
I stopped part of the way back to the cabin to look over the tracks, get my bearings in relation to the larger area and snap another pic.
I had time to try to connect some roads i'd not been on yet, so i jumped off the county roads and thought i'd wander back to cabin.
That turned into a hour and a half of dead end trails and getting trapped by the geography.
On one road, i got about 2 miles in, it kept getting narrower but there were enough tracks i figured they would go were i needed.
Instead i ended up on a trail to someones bowhunting stand.
Getting there took me along a clear cut on the edge of a swamp.
I almost sunk the bile in muck a few times going in and coming back out.
Just when i thought i was safely out and going to beeline home....
I'm looking forward to exploring the area more.
Yes, part of the NWAT i think.
Yes, if it's that section it is part of the NWAT. It looked familiar. I used to ride that a lot from my dad's place west of Tomahawk.
You can explore more area if you ride with both wheels on the ground.
Beautiful pictures. Subscribed!
