Hey, me too. I'm about to turn 55 in a few weeks and took the MSF course in March and passed. My graduation present was a Honda CRF 230L. My 1st ride was up in the sierras. We stayed in Lee Vining, took the road into Yosemite and did quite a bit of off road in the surrounding moutains. We also rode to Bodie Ghost Town. 4 wonderful, adventurous days. Haven't figured out yet how to do a ride report. Have enjoyed several including yours. Because there are no dirt roads near where we live in Long Beach, I am constantly after my 70 yr old husband to go for a ride. He has been riding all his life. He rides a DRZ400. My little cycle does great on the highway. Can't wait til our next adventure, maybe you will see a ride report from me soon.
Just wish he would have gotten me into it sooner!!!!
