Loving the pictures! That bike must be a blast to ride. Good to see your lady enjoys the same type of riding too.

Gin caught bikes on the bridge above with her iphone, said "they can't get down here."



Her appreciation of the GS grew much deeper today, comfortable on the interstate at 75mph and able to crawl along a dirt path by a river without a complaint. I got to know the XR a lot better, it's bearable on the freeway at 75 but it's a whole lot better at 50mph on a country highway and a blast off road.

Oh my God... I need a DS.. There's so much off road fun around here.. We'll expect a three week report on how it is...

That looked like a great Sunday diversion.

The stock Bridgestones were a bit squirmy, my rear is almost shot at 2500 miles so I'm going to put something different on anyway. I mounted Mefo Explorers on Gin's GS and they were fantastic, after she fell over in the mud I picked it up and rode right out of there with great traction. They weren't cheap and took forever to arrive, but going to check out some for the XR I think.

Just ask Brevity and AJcombs how the KLR handled with the Dunlop D606's and I feel certain you would not be disappointed with them. They handled superbly throughout all of the states RC51XX, jetblast and I traversed last year plus they are inexpensive.

Gin's smile is priceless - exactly the look you should have after using a bike as it was intended. Great pictures!

She said she was worried I'd be mad because she dropped another bike, but she looked up and I was laughing and yelling "picture, picture" instead. I was watching her go through the muddy crossing after me and her front wheel hit a tree root and slide sideways, dumping her off gently. Told her that's what they're made for, nothing like laying one down on pavement. Not even a scratch on the GS, and only a small leg bruse on Gin.

Yep they kicked butt, course so did slicks he went every where you did Only thing i'd be worried about was the huge rocks they through up at Ginger might make you want to by a headlight guard for her beamer! It was cool to watch him hit the gas on the KLR till I had to back off
