Photos of the DR30s when I bought it and how it has changed in the past month or so:

miami vice:



dirt bike:




built a custom rack for it this evening so i can carry a spare 1.5L fuel cell and then some small luggage.

i changed my 43 tooth sprocket for a 46 tooth and I just made a rack for the bike for around $10.00, it feels really solid. I am going to add 1 more L bracket and a few washers then it will be done:








I bought a $7.00 crate to stick on the pvc rack and it is really sturdy, the rack had around 20lbs on it today and survived being bounced around in the dirt just fine:

after a little tip over from trying to climb too steep of a rocky slick hill I cracked the crate (the rack survived no prob) so I switched to something a little nicer:


(yes the rack is bolted down, the zip tie is just there to keep down the vibration when jumping over rocks, etc)





Cell phone pics yesterday at a old strip mine:

Few photos back in early spring at Babcock State Park, WV

Rode the bike a few hours today and snapped a few pics while I was there.

Playing around in photoshop a little since the lighting was bad and bland color since there are no leaves on the trees yet.

Went to Dukes Steakhouse and ate way too much as usual then drove to Blackwater Falls, took a few pics on the way up of the windmills then the falls. (39.87 miles)






Left Blackwater Falls, got into a little bit of rain then it cleared up. Rode through Huttonsville, Valley Head and Point Mountain then Webster Springs to Nicholas county (141.05 miles)

There was hardly a straight piece of road the entire trip and there was almost no traffic so we had a blast running the bike through the curves.

The gf's first weekend trip on her bike back in April:

This was her first long ride but she has been doing well so we decided to go for it.

With the bikes washed and loaded up with our new luggage, a clean chaink fresh oil and filters it seemed we were in good shape. Today appeared to be one of the very rare days in wv that it does not rain.






A few maps of the route we took:

Of course the WV classic weather has to kick in and we get rained on within 5 minutes of our trip. We get behind a couple of slow trucks so we got soaked before we could make it to the station to put on out really puffy rain suits lol

YouTube - Leaving for Roanoke

We came across some nice roads on the way up. The curves on the WV side were better but could not be used as well because no one in WV can drive, they run off the road every 10 feet and throw gravel all over the road especially in the curves which ruins your fun. Then when you cross the state line something magical happens, almost no gravel on the roads at all, people actually know how to drive!

YouTube - WV to Roanoke Yamaha FZ6

Our first stop, to eat, take off our rain suits and to clean up form the muddy rain.
