Love this tent, but it weights 13 Lbs.... might take it on my US legs but too big for world travel. Loved the space..... felt great. but needs to be a smaller version.

Was out looking at other options late today :)

.... Greg how's the ride going? Where are you? Ride report?

Hells Canyon, Oregon ADV ride

June 15-19th I was out in Enterprise Oregon at an annual Hells Canyon ADV Campout.

Had my Husky TE610 Dual sport bike for the weekend of riding.

Thursday we headed out for a ride and had a great time. We ended up down in Dug Bar right on the snake river. Wow what a fantastic ride. The pictures to not do the scenery justice.

Started out as a large group...



riding some county gravel roads



then some dirt roads....



some rocky.



The group is down there fixing Maxaccelerations broken fender.


setting up for a video and photo of the group riding by.



Then some more dirt roads.....


Then down to Dug Bar, Oregon on the Snake river



Seethe awesome dirt road ahead :)


about 30 miles like this down to the snake river.


absolutely amazing place !



Taking a break before heading right back up :)



scenery is spectacular all the way


Eric thinks it is great!


off we go....





trying to capture the vastness



some light rain coming in.... but we were having a great ride



Through the last gate







just a great place to ride with friends!!

I was really nice to meet you Mark. I had great time riding with you and the rest of our little group down to Troy. Following you on the Husky really made the XRR earn it's keep. Hopefully we can do some more of it over in Darby later this summer..... Stay safe

Mind if I add a couple?





A fantastic ride.

Between the great twisty gravel, and the breathtaking scenery, it is a ride you need to do several times to take it all in.

I heard one guy say it was the best ride of his life.

You mean the ride that you breezed right through, and I got so winded I could hardly hold onto my bike? The one where my "waterproof" pants let the drizzle soak me to my skivvies?

Thanks for reminding me.
