Thumb Quickie to Silverado

My buddy Bradley (Bo Radley) has been wanting a bike for several years, and finally able to pick up his first bike, a newly used Suzuki DR 650.. Neither he or the bike have ever ridden in the dirt, so we took a quick jaunt down the road, up silverado canyon and ventured up the dirt road a couple miles to give him a small taste. Here's a couple pics to document his first mini adventure.

so excited, he started dancing:












the salute:


Lunch Time....Silverado Cafe, great burgers:


He even worked in his first dirt crash as well! Breaking in the bike ADV style!.

Congrats Bradley!

Looking forward to many more rides in the future.


Cheers,
Monkeytrick

I wouldn't exactly call it a crash...yours was more of a crash, I just kinda tipped over.
Good times indeed.

Note to self - bring gum to cover up the smell of grilled onions in the helment after lunch.
