Pretty crummy weather this weekend for dirt road riding. Though the TMT is more sandy/gravelly than the clay back roads up in VT. The Puppy Dog gets pretty snotty with a few inches of rain on it.
Neither the TMT nor the Puppy Dog are very challenging or demanding in the dry weather. Just some nice, mostly smooth dirt roads to do some back country touring on. Hell, I could ride my FJR down either one no problem, but it wouldn't be nearly as much fun as sliding the Vstrom or Pegaso around all those corners. It is no problem maintaining an average of 30 mph+ on either of them. BTDT (got the sticker)
