Well, I'm happy to report that being unemployeed has one advantage. You get Fridays off. Okay you get everyday off but today was Friday. :lol: With the weather being perfect a couple of us decided we had a need for mud and dirt. As I said conditions were perfect and the area was not crowded at all. This was only the second time I'd gone to Perry APV so it was good getting to know the area.
I'd been road riding for a while and really had lost my "dirt legs" Within the first twenty minuites of riding I'd already had to tip the bike over twice. But I got my head together and got used to the slippery mud again as we rode. At first there were just three of us so we took off into a real muddy area. I sank the bike to the top of the rear tire in one hole and had to get off and lift the rear out. At the end of the muddy trail was a little jump, I had my old camera so I only got one good photo of Glenn hitting the ramp.
We got tired of deep crap quickly and went down to the creek to ride. I'm the one who makes his KLR look like a mini bike. :mrgreen:
We rode the creek for a while and then came out on the main road. We went back to the vehicles for some water and gas for Glenns 450. While there a friend rode past us. I got it in gear chased him down on his GS and we went back to the creek, heading up stream this time.
Glen, who knows the area well suggested we ride up to a water fall. As we got closer he had second thoughts about us making it up on the KLR's and BMW so we parked down stream and walked up.
Glen is a good rider and the KLR's would have not liked the Water fall. But his little 450 rode right up. Plus Glen has been riding for a lot longer than us. :smile:
My old camera was too slow to catch him going up but I got him coming down.
Now for those of you who don't know better, putting a bike in a creek has draw backs. Like no solid ground for the kick stand.
We only had about a half hour left so we plowed around through the woods for a bit and then determined it was time to go home. Fun day indeed. Oh, and the Seal Skins I was wearing kept my feet dry as could be, I am very happy with the purchase. Worth every bit of the $30 they cost :co020
