If you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there.

Yeah, really Mud. I happen to have the (unofficial) honor of being the 1st bike to traverse the Piano Bridge during it's renovation, had to negotiate some equipment and squeeze through to do it though. And yes, I have witnesses!

Mud could have gotten by. My mighty KLR was too big to go left.

" Oh well, we tried...short of taking old bridge timbers and constructing a makeshift crossing"

My balls were too small to go right..

Mike's right, no child left behind! We could have taken old bridge timbers and layed them out but that was too much WORK! Besides that would have required more refreshments.



Thanks moontower. Those roads are just north of you, check 'em out!

I swear that gray bike on the right is Wards Riverside 50cc. It's a Benelli bike that was marketed through Monkey Wards here in the US. I've been on that bike back in the late 60's early 70's. Lotta fun!

I believe you're right Pedro. A classic "starter" bike for many of us, and quite affordable I might add. This was a beautifully restored example.

The Log Jam

Moody Blues and I had a few hours to kill and a couple full tanks of gas so it was off to a nearby secluded riding area on Corps of Engineers (taxpayers) property. There is rarely a soul out there and as usual we had the place to ourselves.



After a sidestand malfunction we found an awesome shortcut across some cultivated farmland.





Signage warns of no offroad vehicles but since we were both tagged, "no worries!"





After passing a cool hillclimb and hitting a deadend, we decided to back track and give it a try.



Well we got our money's worth as the climb was more challenging than we anticipated!



No wonder Moody had problems...one leg is obviously shorter than the other! ha!



I let him re-group and redeem himself by giving it another try. Score!



After some bushwackin' the highstrung KTM started to get a little toasty...





...and so did Moody!



Here Moody wonders why he bought a KTM when he could of had a bulletproof XR for a fraction of the cost, ha!



After a short cool off period, it was time to bust some brush!



Goofing off in an old gravel pit.



All in all a banner day! Until next time.

I figured Moody would get some sick air and I wanted to be close to catch it. He choked!

V-Strom-a-thon

Well May has finally arrived and time for the long awaited first annual V-Strom-a-thon! Hosted by my good friend Timbercat in scenic Llano Texas, we camped for next to nothing along the beautiful Llano River. All bikes are welcome but a huge amount of V-Stroms arrived starting on Thursday evening.







Timbercat arrives, let the fun begin!



I elected to lead a mostly dirt route and set out towards Mason and the awesome red dirt of Mason and San Saba counties.

Llano River





Bauerville Road





Baby Head







First break in Pontotoc









I can't count the times I've seen DL1000 chain guards come loose, three on mine alone!



After lunch in Mason it was off to true adventure with the James River Road and James River crossing!









Duane was the first "victim" on the lightest bike. We sent him out on recon. At least he got a free bike wash!





I've crossed it several times but found it challenging to say the least, so this time I tried a "creative" line to no avail. Oh, by the way, it's extremely slippery!





Next up was AdventureDallas who elected to utilize the team approach and safely cross. A wise man.





Lastly Josh chose to gas it up the middle single-handedly. He schooled us all!





Heroes all, day one is in the books!
