We decided to head over to Deal's Gap. Normally I won't go near the place on a weekend, especially a holiday weekend, but the roads there and back are a great ride and we probably wouldn't actually ride through Deal's Gap. Besides, the store is a cool place to hang out, check out all the bikes and talk to other riders.

We took 28 towards Deal's Gap. 28 is one of my favorite roads. A few miles down the road Debbi commented how much she liked the road. lots of nice sweepers. And we hadn't even got to the best part yet

So we had a blast riding the curves

Right in the middle of the best of the curves, we took a turnoff. It's not a "real" adventure without a little dirt right?

We only went a couple of miles to get to this.

It's a bridge from nowhere to nowhere.

I'm not sure what purpose it serves.

Except to amuse tourists like us. It does bounce up and down quite nicely.

It provides a nice place to take pictures.

Parking the scooter on the soft dirt without it falling over was a challenge but I managed to find a spot. Like many scooters, the Aprilia has a centerstand but no side stand. This makes parking more challenging at times.

Then we geared back up.

And headed back out.

We even tackled some mud.

I don't have knobbies on the scooter but I figured adding an ADV sticker to the tail trunk made it off road capable

I ride, Therefore I Am.
