Been a great summer so far!

Wow, me and my riding buddies have really been having a ball this summer riding the off road areas in Souther Ohio. These photos are not for any one ride but a seriese of them we've been doing so far this year. i'll try to limit them to just those on KLRs.
This was today. We put in around 75 miles on single track used for quads and enduro riding. This hill really kicked some Ars! Jason was happy he wore his body armor!

yes they are in sequence.

It gets better!




Wow what a fall! But just a busted kill switch that was rewired on the trail.
The next hill was easy after that monster!

Hollcaveman is a great rider. One of those that makes the bike look like its gliding over stuff that should bury him. But he is not above the laws of physics. After making this 50' verticle once he chose a bad line and went down. The great part is that being a pro he laid the bike down so that it didn't skid or fall down the hill out of control. The problem was getting it down after sticking it up there.


On the third attempt he made it again for all the cameras!

Not all of us ride KLR's. We have the adopted KTM 950 adventure along with us on most rides. We think it's hard to get a 650 to move on single track, try a 950!


Lately we've had lots of other riders from around Ohio join in the fun. We leave no one behind, everyone rides their skill level and everyone has fun.


You can always pick out the real dual sport nuts. Their the guys stopping at the gas station, parking next to the Harley's, covered in dirt and smilling from ear to ear!


Yeah, it's gonna be a fun summer!

I think it all hindges on making it to some rallies and meeting other enthusiests. Almost every one of these guys I meet on someone elses planned ride. So either host your own ride or attend someone elses and get out there
