what happened to my offroad adventure today.

there was a sustained 40-50 mph wind with gusts over 70, it was mild when i took the video. it turned into a 20 ft visibilty dust storm. still rode over 250 miles through it though.

It's good to get sand blasted every now and again! Which direction did you head?

everyone else pussed out and didnt want to go offroad but me and the old man showed up anyway, then they guy didnt want to go out in the wind so we made the best of it and did a little ride while we were out.

yeah it was like riding in a tornado minus the rain and hail. but windy as all hell and low visibility from sand...nothing like getting sand blasted and getting blown all over the road.
