Skyclad's Wanderings
 
I really enjoy the Day-in-the-life-of threads. Figured that I would do my part to entertain the inmates and share my little corner of the world.

I think I will start by going back a few years to the day I brought the Ulysses home.

Great bike that carried me to lots of wonderful places around the state...

Along comes Katie
 
Folks that know me know that I would often take the Ulysses in places Erik never intended it to go. I really needed something to get a dirty with. So along came Katie.

The death of Ulysses
 
Little did I know that this was to be one of the last pictures I would take of Ulysses.

http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a4/...-55-46_454.jpg

Went down on the Saturday ride at the BWDR Fall Gathering last year.

Doesn't look too bad in this picture
http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a4/...1/IMG_0182.jpg

But the more serious damage starts to become evident on close inspection
http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a4/...1/IMG_0192.jpg

http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a4/...1/IMG_0194.jpg

Bent front wheel, forks, rear subframe etc etc etc. Yeah, she was totalled, but at least I walked away with no injuries. The helmet certainly did its job.:clap

Introducing Mattie
 
If one looked at my profile, it mentioned that I wouldn't mind having a KTM Adventure in my garage. So it only made sense that when I killed Ulysses, she would be replaced by a bit of orange.

And I even got to keep the plate.:clap Prophetic perhaps?:deal

http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a4/...6/IMG_0237.jpg

So, now I am pretty much up to date, and will continue this thread as I continue to explore. Lots of interesting stuff out there.

Have you hit the tons of dirt roads crisscrossing the area around and to the north of me yet?

Skyclad 01-26-2012 05:03 PM

I have been up there a few times on the Uly, but really have not explored the area . . . yet.

Anything that on a map makes you wonder why they didn't route the nearest major road that way as it's a shorter distance is a good candidate.
Also, I highly recommend River Road from the PA side of the Delaware next to Narrowsburg up to Equinunk. It starts off pavement but it's narrow and very much like a roller coaster. It turns dirt after awhile and the last bit is kinda hairy for something that is supposed to be a road.

Cool, looks interesting. :thumb
