I still love my DRZ. There's not a better backroads explorer, I don't think. Hell, I might let it sleep in the house tonight.

The only problem I have is that my rear tire is pretty much toast and down to the wear bars. I was riding on a slick all day long except when I was laid over in the turns. Sorry about me not checking my routes after the supposed upload. For winging the whole day's ride, I'd say we stayed on a fair amount of gravel.
A third of the roads we were on didn't show up on my GPS. I'd say you did GREAT!

Yeah I left it on my desk last night when I got pizza and never put it back in my wallet....Thanks a ton for spotting me breakfast SandalScout I totally will pay you back with interest next time we meet up to ride (hopefully soon). Anyway ride today was great! The gravel we did was great times and the few on road sections were lots of fun because I don't think any of it had a longer straightaway than 1/10th of a mile! We really weren't even on the road much until after lunch and Randy found out that there was no gravel to the East...I am plugging in my camera/GPS recordings now. I'll post up vids of the ride soon, I am displaying them in a new way so its going to take longer than usual but its going to be very worth it.

EDIT:

Alright guys here is the video link. I highly advise you watch it in max HD and fullscreen if you want to see the GPS tracking data.

It's a new attempt to add a cool feature of the camera into my videos but the way I had to do it was a little complicated so it hurt the video quality some. I think if I use my desktop next time instead of my laptop and adjust my camera settings it'll actually look much better next time I try it. Opinions?
Also thank Threadkiller who gave me some epoxy putty that made this fix possible.

No worries man, I failed to see your name in Randy's post earlier, so I wasn't sure if you made it out to ride with them.

That overlay is really freaking cool!

That road in the very beginning of the video was dirt/gravel in December. There was some fresh pavement a few miles from there, but they are getting pretty aggressive with the pavers over there right now.

Fantastic ride at LBL Sat. Wallachian got some video hopefully he can post some here. Good high speed gravel, twisties, mud, ruts, goat paths, and a close call with some deer.

What are you using to record the GPS data as you ride? I assume you are using a Contour GPS camera instead of a Go Pro? Its a sweet addition to standard videos. ME LIKE IT!

Yeah it's the Contour GPS Camera. The only issue they need to fix is the lack of editing software for the videos. They only can do playback with their GPS stuff so to get the video to look like that I am having to screen-cap it as I play it back on my computer.

I look forward to seeing me on some video.
I didn't mean to sound like I didn't have fun, I had a blast. I wanted to test my new tires off road & I'm thrilled with the result! The KLR is just such a heavy beast that if I make a habit out of riding in mud that feels like I'm on a sheat of glass with a heavy coat of chain lube on my tires, I'll probably fall down & bust my spizerinctum. I suspect that an un-busted spizerinctum is the smarter way to go.
