I found one of the videos I had deleted. Nothing exciting - just us enjoying Highway 1, loaded down with crap. This is from the trip to Stonyford so we have camping gear - Gobi bags & that horrible top case.

No, we haven't done a ton of riding 2up in the dirt (I assume by "adventure" you mean non-pavement). For years, I would stay home and take care of our elderly dog while Matt rode.
Now that my sweet dog is gone
I'm free to ride with Matt as much as possible. Gotta make up for lost time!
We did a Baja trip (as far south as La Paz) that was mostly off road - lots of sand and I thought we were going to die going from San Evaristo to La Paz. Racing the sun at 80 mph (it’s hard to float an overloaded school bus), deep sand and lots of vados...
That was our only “big” off road trip before this one (TAT). The rest were just weekend trips and day rides. Good dirt is hard to find in the bay area! That's why we loved the TAT.
We're starting to plan this summer's ride - it's looking like the best of TAT west (CO to NV), OBDR, and maybe some Idaho, Montana, Wyoming...
