KLR's and other dual sports go ride

It was an awesome day on the bike this past weekend! An older guy I've ridden with a few times offered up an unorganized ride for a new guy to the hobby. A few of us said we were available and could go. Another guy ended up leading the ride and they had nothing planned other than to find a big buffalo.
It was a short, but awesome ride! I rode all new roads to me, the leader did an excellent job taking us down minimum maintenance roads, I got to chat and ride with some old friends, and made some new acquaintance's. When I arrived I was pleasantly surprised to see there were 16 of us that showed up ready to ride. On this day I rode my KLX300, but there were a lot of KLR's on the ride which you will see in the video.
Check it out if you would like.
And yes, every place we rode were "roads".

Looks like fun. Bumping wheelies too.
