    Thumbs up L e a f R i v e r - Dual Sport Ride




    Leaf River, Illinois November 2, 2008
    http://forestcityriders.com/

    This event is designed for enduro bikes and may not be big bike friendly.

    The event was ran on the same course as the enduro

    The Trail consisted of single track with connections made with two track, gravel roads, farm fields, a 1913 train underpass, a few water crossings, and a ATV Trail shot in for good measure.

    I would like to thank all the land owners for letting us travel on their land.


    The Forest City Riders put this Dual Sport Ride with 237 riders attending the Ride. The ride was 30 miles with the option to do two laps for a total of 60 miles






    Black Box Below is a Slide show -
    Takes about 30 seconds to start -up

    Some of the scariest part were the ATV/Snowmobile bridges

    I pulled up to this water crossing and I decided to let the guys behind me go first. I watch them make it look easy. My concern was hitting slime and soaking my camera or sucking water in the carburetors on my BMW Twin.

    Heck, I did not even get my toes wet!





    To this rider this was a dried up creek, to me it was a raging river

    Under this bridge you had a choice of three line:
    high near the water, close to the wall or the rut

    A lot of places were tight. I just made it between these two trees,
    The BMW cylinders are offset by a few inches.
    I used the offset and leaning to get my old Beemer through places that were narrower than my bikes cylinders

    I would leave the twins at home, but some clowns have been know to do this on 950 Adventures.

    And if you really like the DS run, the official enduro is the following Sunday.

    The picture does not do a good job of showing the log 2 feet from the top that kicks up your back tire.

    This ravine was twenty feet down,
    then twenty feet back up the other side.

    Glad I bought the new Dunlop 606 at motorcycle-superstore.com
