Good to know, sand is a lot cheaper than gas.

I hit two nice rivers (one for native brook trout, the other for rainbows and browns). Great weekend of paved and unpaved roads!

I just spent the last 4 days wandering from the coast of Maine to the Adirondacks and back. I rode all sorts of twisty back roads, lots of broken pavement, gravel roads, two track and trails...This bike is awesome

Just over three hours to the mountains, fortunate to have a camp just east of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Last weekend was a 600 mile trip (about 210 miles puts me in the mountains).

I agree

Theses guys was coming from quite far and the tire on the KTM was a bit aggressive for couple of hours on highway. I guess they are true off road riders.

Dead man's turn. A sudden right hander at the bottom of a 9% grade, Bloomington, MD.
There's a sign that used to be near the top of the hill that said to jump if the brakes fail.

Each is for a separate truck. The worn spot behind the bike is straight beyond the oncoming lane where the wall has been hit multiple times.


There are 24 crosses painted. I'm sure in Utah, you've got more deadly spots than this for the truckers though.
