This is what it looks over the Gaf Topsails area.

You mean liken this?!!! Crossed up on the center ridge again, and then the alders ate me. After this one I got off just before Stephenville and went out to Port au Port, and then Trout River. The guys on RTR steered me over to Howley, and I got back on there. Much better.... Did you ride by Red Indian Lake, Dave? If so, which shore would you recommend?

went down the Buchans side which I would call the west side...there were some holes in a large wooden bridge but was easy to walk the bikes around. may be fixed by now. a guy from VT username "Canuman" crashed up there last week and broke a shoulder in 2 places but I think he was on the east side...came over the crest of a hill and found the road washed out...the west side gets more use so I think the road would be better....http://advrider.com/forums/showpost....&postcount=895

send me a PM with email and I will send my tracks. There is another "must ride" road. From Corner Brook out to Cox's Cove then on "County Rd" to Old Man Lake and up the Hughes Brook Rd and came out near Wiltondale

BKMLWR, thanks for the link and the offer, PM sent. Poor guy, that's no way to end a trip...
GOODOLEGUZZI, hope that farmer didn't spread manure on your tent or anything. Where you at, Quebec?
T, thanks for the advice, the older I get, the slower I am...
EVILCLOWN, more at 11.....

Some people will tell you that slow is good but Im here to tell you that fast is better. Ive always believed this, in spite of the trouble its caused me. Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles, Bubba

to me it all depends on how many times you want to break your collarbone.....
rode marbles up in the Rowell Mtn Wind Farm near Lincoln with no issues but there was a hard base under the marbles
but the sand/marble mix in Quebec was several inches deep and the KLR even at 40-45 was washing out while the 800XC following me was doing ok.... ..I decided I was not going to ride that for 95 miles...prolly went to hard pack over the next hill...
