All because I stumbled upon this website about a year ago and was immediately addicted. To answer your question regarding "unpaved adventure", my answer would be...it depends. If your looking for something challenging for a DS bike, most of what I have found is either posted, gated or blocked by strategically placed logs. If adventure touring is more your thing then here are a few photos of some of the more interesting areas I have stumbled across.
YES! Adventure touring it is then! All those places in the photos are exactly what I'm looking for. Please tell me more because I have not ventured across those locales yet.

Hi Crowbot, do you live on Grimes just off Woodlawn? My boy takes music lessons from a guy on Wilson Street and I always see two bikes over there on Grimes. I always wonder if those bikes belong to inmates...

I swapped out my DRZ for a YZ450 that isn't plated so I can't hit the streets anymore but I would definitely be interested in joining for some trail rides.

Indy Bike Junkyards

Heading to Indy tomorrow, got most of the morning to spend if I leave before noon. Any bike bone yards there? Google comes up with sketchy details of one near 38th on Emerrson, is that one real, are there others.

I don't know what I want until I see it for the most part. One thing I'd like to get is a splined shaft that I can make a spline broache. An RM or PE big bore with a pipe and maybe carb might be fun for my spare SP.
