Yup, goes to the same places that the BMWs go. Difference is, it makes it back. ;)

Thanks Pluric. I am considering fitting it in but a couple of extra thousand miles might just be too much.

I took my S 10 camping this week in East Texas. Finding a good spot to put the side stand down in the soft sandy soil was difficult because the pig wanted to take a nap every time I tried. Finally got off and put it up on the center stand only to find the bike had sunk a good 5" overnight.

I was dog-cussing her the entire hour it took me to dig out.

Try a 125 next time. You can load it on the back.

No way, Silly Graham...

Everybody knows bikes with dirt or mud on 'em aren't allowed in Starbuck's parking lots!

I hate that shit. Instead of grading the road and putting a new surface on, they just dump a load of that sandy fill on top and (sometimes) compact it.

Works O.K. for cars and trucks, but a bike tire cuts through and there are usually big ruts underneath - riding on it is like playing Russian Roulette with five chambers loaded.

Oh, and never try to park on the edge - that's never compacted and you just sink.

The last big ride I did up to Hungerford they used their imaginations. I don't think there was any single surface that was the same for more than 10Km. The best bit was the single layer of pea gravel on hard base suddenly turns into 4 inches of gravel on deep sand. Didn't look much different until you hit it at high speed

The deep bull dust on corners was fun as well. Its sort of like a dry water crossing. You just can't tell how deep it is going to get.

Just a stoopid' drop trying to get a picture of the bike. Surface went from gravel to beach sand just like that

And of course the three guys I was riding with had already rolled out of the campground so I was left alone to pick her up..all my time at the gym has paid off though. First attempt, grabbed a bar and a bag and stood her right up

Round 2....this time in Western NC off the Max Patch area. You can see my tire marks where I went in the middle and the rear tire ended up going into the left hole..my right from the drivers seat and then down I went at very low speed. Grabbed the passenger handle and horsed it out and back on the road. I'm certainly getting my money's worth out of the Rumbux setup. As soon as the stockers are worn out, the K60's go on. I did about 80 miles of various trails today at low speed and had a blast. Love the ST.

Just after the nap!

found out that without decent knobbies, the Super Ten isn't a mountain goat, but it did pretty well until the rock on the right threw me into the left bank about 60 yds from the Burnt Knob LO on the Magruder Corridor... these pic's are just after the nap. Couldn't get traction once stopped, so had to turn around... still a great bike! it handled everything else on the Magruder Corridor and Lolo Motor way with ease...
