Kansas ride

The weak video and pics don't show how good of a ride it was. There were 5 KLR's out of 8 of us. Would of been 6 if I rode mine. 2 were brand new 2011's with 500 miles and they haven't ridden dirt for years. We went thru a tight and rough road and they made it without laying them down. It was HOT, but fun.

Thanks guys, but I disagree, it's not a very good video. We did some great roads and went down a "bridge out" road and made our way thru the construction. But with the heat and lack of time didn't get a lot of the "good stuff".
jimS a guy came up here from Danville to ride. He had a good time.

Sounds like a good time; liked the video. You guys must have roasted. Get us some footage of the good stuff when it cools off and you have some more time.

Scenery looks like Manhattan to Lawrence area. Didn't you post a Tuttle Creek ride a while back? Our youngest son graduated from KU three years ago so made that trip a few times. Was stationed at Fort Riley a bunch of years ago(68-69)

3 of us got out for a NICE ride today. Not a challenging ride, but it was exactly the relaxed ride I was looking for.
Perfect time to test out my new GoPro HD.
More vids to follow...
