Laugh This thread shold be a sticky on the FRONT page.

These guys are our roots. They boldly went wherever it was fun to go. They pushed their machines to the limits and beyond. That is Adventure Riding.

Thumb Wow....

After seeing what these guys did on hardtails, I'll laugh my ass off the next time I see a KLR, GS, DL, etc, rider going on about their new, high-dollar suspension they had to have so they could pull off to the side of the road and take pics of their bikes...lol.

Have you seen it?

The July issue has a great shot of a flying Harley hill climber.
Hard tail, springer forks, floor boards, and tire chains too.

The rider's position is "perfect timing" for the picture!

If you don't get the magazine, take a look at the last page next time you are in a store.
