162 miles. Three of us rode from Las Vegas NV to Logandale NV. We rode Logandale trails, beautiful terrain and HOT 102F. One went down in the sand dunes when he stopped to look back, No injuries to him or the bike, ya gotta love that sand. Unfortunately the picture of the down bike did not take.:ride:

Lakeshore Rd on the way to Logandale.

Track prepped mine, including oil change. Pushed it down the driveway to take pics. Fired it up for new oil to circulate, then I pushed it back up the driveway, and into the garage.:ride:

Gonna be doing some hard riding tomorrow.

I rode to our local forest and hit the trails with my buddy on his ktm only about 6 miles on tarmac to get their. Every time we go we both come back tired but extremely happy men. It's a good mix of single track and faster open tracks. Chooken i see you live in Perth you lucky man. I spent two years in Fremantle in 2000 and travelled the west coast highway to Exmouth ,Broome, Darwin and onto cairns etc etc. For the last few years i have been promising myself that one day i will be back to travel this route again. Only this time it would be done on a drz with safari tank camping gear and most importantly my fishing rods. I long to ride the Gibb river road and then onto cairns and north to Wiepa via the old telegraph track. It's now over ten years since i've traveled to you fantastic country

I've such good memories of W.A and the friends i made there.

went to a local riding ranch here in Texas, Hidden Falls Adventure park.. Rode 70 miles yesterday, and in the realm of 125 today.

the Boy and I are tiring to get back in riding shape... so connected several loops together to ride continuously..

In a life time of riding, Texas is by far the worst place to ride bar none.

I only did about 45 miles but it was my first experience down dirt roads and some decent trails. I was a little apprehensive doing it on street tires but I wanted to see what I was working with. Except for the front being a little slippy here and there it did fine and I was quite pleased. More to come!

Rode about 100 miles on sm setup - trip included twisties, (found a great rise to play on near a dead end), gravel/dirt road, atv trails. I even had to cross railroad tracks. I was alittle unsure how the distansia's would do over them but it crept over them with no issues. Ended at a friends house with beer and campfire.

Only about 20km, and at about 12km/h. My nephew is getting better every ride, starting to shift on the trails rather than just the logging roads. I even get to shift out of first sometimes now!:smirk::p
