inspirational.

A KLR 650 *can* do sand but it's not the best machine for it...

I saw Mark - F.I.B. - taking a nap, which amazed me. On CT Ten (was it?), he rode that KLR like an Easy Boy recliner, hardly breaking a sweat.

Fun pics, Bryan. Makes me wanna go back - either another Trek or the NWAT.

Glad I wasn't there for that one....there would have been too many pictures of another yellow bike taking a few naps!

This 20' of sand has proven the most photogenic spot in the whole of northern Wisconsin... (Photo Courtesy Zora)

Funny, thats my bike but I'm not on it.

I think the left line is a bit faster.

I love this road. The best part of this section is all the grinning riders stopped at the bottom, cameras ready, telepathically willing you to fall down.
