Rode with some buddies in my precious yesterday. Part of that "life GOOD" stuff.


Mr. Kunders, Awesome to see you, and a serious pleasure riding with you.



Tom, Sorry that your Tiger was being visited by her monthly friend....
Wayne and Badguy to the rescue.



There was actually a hint of fall in the air This last week has been really nice here in the upper mid Atlantic.




Look, it's an ADVr I know....


Look, it's another slightly more diminutive ADVr I know



I musta had some powerful stink on me, or maybe it was Wayne, but they didn't even stop to say hey. Y'all missed the single best overlook in the Forest.
No accounting for taste.

Some others we saw.

Looks like a cool guy.


Lookin badass!


Hope Y'all had a good ride.

Had another great day of riding in Michaux on Saturday with a great group of fellow ADVRiders from DE and MD, well except for the ones gave us a good dusting while parked at Dark Hollow Vista!? Jax could you edit out those pics of me with my helmet off, your blowin' my cover!

Jax, my only experience with Pennsylvania is slabbing it in my car on I-81 during the dead of winter to visit my brother who was in rehab at Allied after an accident.

As they were difficult times for me my experience of Pennsylvania was filtered through a dark lens until i came upon your thread

your photos and words show me what a beautful state i missed by being wrapped up in a clouded state'

I definitily have to explore it on 2 wheels the first chance I get

you should be on the payroll of the state tourism board

Is that a Suzuki SV650? with road tires? I think the 250 can candle a gravel road

I guess it's my SV650DS
My DR650 is down for a while but I've been wanting to get up here with Jack for so long I couldn't pass up the opportunity. It wasn't as squirrely as I thought it would be, but I'm sure a bit of rain would've fixed that pretty quickly. I think you'd definitely be fine riding through Michaux with the 250 after browsing through your blog and seeing the kind of miles you've put down.

You and Chub are welcome to jump IN and Out as your schedule allows. Or you could just ride the whole thing with us

Clown out! Back to the purty pixs
We shall see. I've been toying with the idea of doing an east coast ride next year. Grass is always greener eh? Though in this case, it IS greener, and there is actually grass!

Jax, I got a chance to ride a G650 Saturday. I don't know how you do it... I am in awe that you did the CDR on that thing. I think the G stands for "Gutless", no? I've been spoiled by my fancy-schmancy bike with actual power below 4k RPM, and ergos that allow for people taller than 5'8". Riding it down I-25 was terrifying, to say the least.

I bet it is hard to switch from your badass euro trash to my absolutely less than badass eurotrash.

I keep thinking of trading my Tiger 1050 on another BMW 650 thumper. Yes I been drinkin the F650GS-thumper coolaid for almost 50K miles now.
