I hate mud.
My hooligan friend and me
Amazed you got that far with those tires. Impressed you'd even try.
Detour around this wash would have sucked. Figured we could make it (2up) lol! Couldnt get up onto bank. After about 15minutes in BFE and nobody around a dude on a quad with winch rolled up and pulled us out!! Lucky skunks! Didnt have to unload bike!
A favorite picture of me taken by Rokklym from the Trans Wisc trail a few years back.
One very wet Day in Texas racing Motocross!!! not my favorite conditions for racing, but it's still racing or at least trying to get to the finish line...….
As the day went on it got worst!!!!!! But heck it was still worth it, a weekend of racing MX with my daughter and Wife... best of times......
Least it wasn't dusty.
I quess getting OUTA there was a lot harder than getting IN there...?
Admirable what GS guys will put themselves through just to get to Starbucks.
They make one hell of a pumpkin spiced latte
No spiced lattes, just rat for dinner. Five weeks of this, solo... Ho Chi Minh Trail in the wet season. I lost 30 pounds....
These boots still had a few weeks to go
I'd already drowned the bike in this deeper than it looks creek
This one was fun. Solo... middle of nowhere.
Bit mucky, but collapsing and very narrow... with a big penalty for a wrong move
No need for a sidestand.
Got lucky, they came along. I helped them, they helped me
It really was good having help around at times... but most of the time, no-one seen for hours at a time
Drowned the damn KTM in this innocuous looking puddle. It was surprisingly deep
All good fun.
Respect mate ...respect AND jealousy haha!
@The Bigfella - Been following your antics for years. Good to see you're still up to your tits in it. You took a 950SE up Bromo or some such Javan volcano, no? That was one of my favourites -- the looks of incredulity on the faces of the tourists you passed, just priceless.
Ha ha - yes, there were some grumpy shits among them too. Funny you should mention Bromo, because that's my video project for the week. I've been setting old and new videos to music for the bar... and this week I'm working on all the Bromo footage.
Here's a couple of stills from there:
See how nice I am - didn't want to scare the horses.
The volcanic ash wasn't too bad to ride on, which surprised me, as it was fresh - from an eruption about three months earlier
But - back on topic. Here's one of two soldiers I came across on the flats there - they call it the Sea of Sand
They were stuck solid in the middle of the creek. It was like quicksand - and you can see the hole I got them out of. They couldn't budge the bike, but three of us managed to haul it out.
Happy chappies. They wanted to swap bikes
@The Bigfella - That lady wanted to scold you for disrespecting her volcanic wasteland, but I guess you were moving a bit too fast. I reckon taking my SE up Bromo would be one of the highlights of my motorcycling life.
You have a bar? Where? May I belly up to it?
I think she was more pissed off because I was doing it "the easy way" and she had to get off the poor pony she'd hired and actually walk.
Yeah... the bar has been an interesting change. I went from management consulting to riding motorbikes every day. Today, a mate, a staff member and I ran three bikes with four new tyres spread across them up the mountain for a beer... so that customers didn't have to deal with slippery new tyres. The bar is Rider's Corner in motorcycling nirvana - Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. Come on over an pull up a bar stool....
