    After riding with some ADVRider regulars in the morning, I hooked up with my very favorite BMW/Triumph salesguy and incredibly talented rider, LudiChris.

    Here he is at one of the several reservoirs we visited during our travels.

    After crossing the damn breast, we found a cool ATV trail. A short creek crossing and a little hill and we were set!

    We were on some really cool trails. This one took us down to a tunnel under the interstate highway.

    We weren't exactly sure that the tunnel was do-able. I'm sure that we could have made it, but riding big heavy adventure class tourers, we didn't want to drop off the concrete floor of the tunnel into a four foot deep lake at the end. Walking through the tunnel to evaluate, I turned around once the water was deep enough to start leaking into my boots.

    They must mean "MOTO MIKE".

    Twisty turny trails.

    Someone was thoughtful enough to place an obstruction at the trailhead to allow only motorcycles to pass. That was might sweet of them!

    Super fun! Can't wait to do it all again!

    LOL I though Theo was going to follow us back after the gas station but we took off to head home and he was still there. He had his GPS so he should have been able to get home :rofl

    Sorry buddy, I apologize.

    PS You would have loved it.

    PSS We rode in the afternoon, you would have had to be home before we started.

    I thought Theo was with you guys.

    Maybe he's still laying in front of Matto's?

    Yo!, BuddyPal,

    Were you out near the Francis Walter Dam?

    Kinda looks familiar.

    If so, I didn't know there was any good trail there. :ear
