Looking for a new home for my TE610...

Have had 5 great yrs with my 2007 TE610 - now ready to try something different. Please pass the word if you know of anyone looking for a used dual sport that's been well enjoyed & taken care of:

Undecided as to what I'll replace it with... likely a multi-cylinder adv touring ride. Looking forward to seeing what the manufacturers have at the bike show in 2014.

Some of my favorite routes, really wish I could have gone. Lycan, where was that first water patch, and could you post the gpx file; you have some back roads on the way I haven't tried. Thanks!

Video coming

The Video should be up by morning from today's ride.

Sorry Charlie, the battery puked on the Go-Pro just before you did your crossing at Wilkinson Creek, so no video of you.

I will get the GPX file up in the Layin' Down Tracks - Calgary Area. It will have to wait until the Video has finished uploading, so in the morning.

Warren and I did some "green laning" on the way south. The grass was still frost covered and slippery, but fun. The Water Crossing is north of Black Diamond and east of Millerville. I do that one a lot in a season.

Thanks Lycan, much appreciated; looking forward to the video. I'll probably try and do it in the snow, have a miserable time and smuck up my bike!

Ah, Alberta


Did I hit my head and slip into a coma? I think I missed a few weeks.

Denile ain't just a river in Egypt. Good luck at -11 C. I hope to not hear about you on the news.

Last of the fall rides

Great ride yesterday. It was good to finally get up and over the hump and get a look at 940 going north. Here's a couple of pics but my lens was quite dusty...

Top of the hump. Perfect weather.

The big washout...

Truth to that.

I've fallen on ice on the trail where it's an instant washout. I can only imagine it would be worse when a car runs over you.

Studded tires on their way, but that's trail only. Brap!
