Nice pics, looks like alot of history and cool exploring to do in LA. How far can you actually go without hitting asphalt?

As Scott mentioned I think the trail is purdy awesome. Being a street bike convert i haven't had much dual sporting experience prior to the trail, but regardless it's a good time. It's amazing what you can find if you'll just go out and look for it. He has integrated a lot of different terrain (unintentional I'm sure ) Personally, I think that makes for a better ride.

We need to get some more people out there on it. There has to be some more folks out there looking for a good ride. Come on and hit the L.O.T. I can vouch for having a good time.

I'm learning a lot out there on the trail. This weekends lesson...
Don't try to hit a mud hole as fast and hard as Scott does, even if he makes it look easy!

My thoughts exactly. I was beginning to think the new "teacher adam" wasn't a biker anymore.

2200 Transalp miles in the last month. What's your count?


Jeff and I did some gravel ripping mud slogging around on Bodcau last weekend, and we had a buddy with a GSXR 600 come up from NOLA this weekend, so we had to stick to the pavement, we did hit some of the old oil-top though. I just haven't done exploring on the northern portion yet.

Have I mentioned how good it feels to outrun a dude on a GSXR through the asphalt twisties with a Transalp on worn out Mefo's?
(he had an unfair advantage in the straights though)

LA Memories

Man, I moved from Leesville, LA in 1986 and I have missed only a few things. The people and the riding. The only riding I did back then was on a Honda Big Red Three Wheeler. I am still riding in Colorado but now on two wheels. Thanks for the pics and memories.

Let's see....he already knows where all the good roads and trails are. He knows where the water crossings are, and the alternate water crossings too. He knows where to find gas, lodging, and food.

And he only wants $20?

I'll be down next year. How's March?

Actually, the $20 is for the hiking trail

But yeah, i'm cheap, and you are correct. I know where the stuff is at!

I'll see you in March.

Whatever. I don't care. I'll buy your gas, I'll buy you lunch. Still a deal. Might bring friends.
