ADV ride

Well, my first ADV ride in a group (FRONT RANGE DUAL SPORT RIDERS) was a learning experience..Did a lot better then I thought I would but learned when they says small cc bike, knobbies, don't show up with a klr with saddle bags, tail bag and 80/20 tires. Had a blast and learned a lot!! I will be back better prepared.. Great group!

They all trailed motocross bikes with lights (wr250, 500ktm...) I thought to myself "oh no, what did I get into!!!"

It much steeper then it looks and it wasn't the worst!!!

This is how we learn. In no time you'll be the one leading on the trails.

Well, at least 'leading To the trails'. Bike on 2 wheels is always quicker that truck and or trailer.

On a couple of rides with our local ATV club over the years some of the atv'ers were surprised that I rode from home! They were even more surprised when I commented the I still had enough fuel to "turn around and do the entire route in Reverse, including the ride home"! 60-70 miles is a long day on an ATV. That is just the second or maybe third gallon of fuel for the KLR and I!
