Stay OFF of the Interstates!

I circled the USA in 2012 traveling 98% of the tour on back country roads. I saw a lot more than I would have, by taking my time and finding small back roads that pass through small towns.

Here in Montana, I happened upon a fiddler's convention!

Enjoy!

Top Gun? Not even close...

Yeah... this will turn some heads.

"It looks like it's ready to take off at any moment.

A video being shared across social media this week shows what appears to be Ron Gallops' F-106 Jet Cycle, with many wondering if it's real or if it's even street legal.

The Jet Cycle is both -- just don't expect it to fly.

Called Freedom 1, the Jet Cycle is a Honda Gold Wing motorcycle that's been modified by Gallops to look like an F-106 Delta Dart, complete with a glowing afterburner.

The result? A street-legal fighter jet with a top speed of 80 mph.

Gallops told the St. Petersburg Times in 2005 that the biggest challenge isn't driving a winged motorcycle, complete with a cockpit and landing gear. It's watching out for everyone who's watching him.

"You have to be paying attention because the people are looking at it, and they're running all over the lane," Gallops said."

Call me a wuss but I couldn't watch that last "fail" video - way too many folks being badly hurt.

For me, youtube's great at instructional videos....there needs to be more. They're awesome for idiots like myself

part of a series i'm doing on various riding skills. it has a trials flavor but i'm surprised at how much of this stuff i'm actually using on the adventure bike. just ignore the silly stuff at the end, we can't help ourselves sometimes.

***vid snip***
Interesting to watch but way too technical for me but I'd love to see some videos on flat gravel/fire track riding, coping with sand - aka the sort of terrain where most endure bikes are gonna end up on.

All I've been able to find on the interweb is a lot of folks either showing off or who assume the watchers have a modicum of off road experience already.

The advice in your video about keeping the legs flexed also conflicts with other videos I've seen that categorically state legs should be kept locked.

interesting... i haven't heard of that. is that specific to adventure riding? i'd be keen to read if you have any detals on the source of the info. i'm definitely no expert myself but just passing on tips from the experienced guys i know.

this is about cross training, so adopting a trials-based approach to dirt riding which most of the extreme enduro and endurocross riders use, so it will be different in some aspects to traditional techniques.

there won't be any vids in this series on easy dirt roads but once i finish the trials and cross training series that could be a goer if i'm still feeling motivated. a series like that would also start from scratch, and not assume at least a year's worth of experience as this cross training series does.

there will be vids uploaded to this youtube channel on riding in soft sand, mud and things that are occasionally applicable to adventure bikes.

all the written information is up and available on the advrider thread below, with the caveat that not all of it is applicable to adventure riding...

Dirt riding, enduro & cross training skills
