    Mike,Jim, you guys said you wanted single track the big bikes could ride, something that is very like 2 track but narrower with no mud, big logs, or rock gardens. well you got it coming!!! all big bikes must have KNOBBIES! we found 8 to 10 miles of just that and the ADV tour guys will will get to do it before anyone other than the set up riders! lj

    we put together some fine Big Bike tracks,
    as it turned out we had a few day of rainy weather before the R4R
    and we had 3 R1200GS BMWs and a 650 GS two-up


    That was then,

    & this is now,

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~AMA National Adventure Riding Series




    Here is the way not to do the Bridge

    Luck
    is when the rear wheel stops on the bridge
    and someone is there to help the 1200 GS

    Note, in the second photo,
    the direction of the front wheel

    Talking ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~AMA National Adventure Riding Series



    This year's Adventure Big Bike route was a dirt bike route
    Last year it was a gravel ride.
    A gravel ride is what this couple was expecting
    - a two up gravel road ride
    instead they got 50 miles of dirt riding.

    All the water crossings, mud and ruts, they never fell down. Some really great riding

    When they got to the bridge,
    he asked if she wanted to get off
    She replied "Go for it"

    She did get off, only the hard way!

    Note on the below photo
    her yellow helmet in the trees
    - one very adventurous gal!

    (I think it was another 120ish for the thumper route)

    ....I wish I had taken some pics of those two on an F650GS-Dakar. Those two were perfectly in tune together.

    Kudos to Jon who showed up on a brand new 2010 R1200GS-Adventure
    and rode it like its supposed to be riden (yellow GS in KLASJM's post)

    The best part of the ride...the fundraiser. Congrats to everyone for raising $13,000 for UWCCC


    See you at the

    Lot's of wet log crossings to practice on.
    It was slippery, snotty, wet and muddy.

    Weird, but this was probably the funnest ride I've been to.
