The first ones are of my '08 Adventure, I was riding a road in rural Illinois, we had recent torrential rains and the mud came down out of the field and filled in some old ruts...It took me two hours by hand to pull the pig out. Just another great day of riding!











These were taken earlier in the week on my '10 Adventure on Engineer's Pass.







There is no such thing as a bad road...Only unprepared riders!

A few I've been on in Colombia.

These two below Adam Lewis and I cross over a section where a half of a mountain came down the valley, the locals where super friendly and more than willing to help out.




This was damn slippery and steep in coffee finca land near Risalda






What's left of it:


God I love Colombia

Uhhhggg! That deep powder dust can be awful.

Funny how we would all attempt to cross what you tried, and then after we all wrecked, we would each say to ourselves "What was I thinking?" A+ on the effort, bro!

Thanks man

A guy came down the road to check on me as he thought I was dead I got the little guy to help me out a little and using some of my handy ratchet straps as winches got the bike up and out with a little digging to make a good slope. Kinda tweaked the beak after being in the tough spot.


After my custom ramp out was made nice and smooth. I used the tires to keep it from flipping over to the other side when I got it up from the right side.


Good help, without him it would have been a lot longer digging out


I damn near made it but could get the back wheel up the other side and then when I rolled back down in the cut there was no place to get a foot hold and down I went, I just knew the bike was coming down on top of me and got lucky when it wedged just right

You got to ride a little crazier to make through this thing, I wasn't 100% in on my attempt, I don't think I would try it again unless I cut on the exit ramp first Big GS a little too low without doing so.
