    For you VT Dual Sport riders I had a nice little adventure over Randolph Gap just north of Bethel MTN road. I borrowed my father’s KLR 650, to visit family and took the opportunity to explore some roads I was not familiar with. Spotted Gideon Brook road as a way to get up and over to Rochester. The road went from gravel to a nice class 4 two track to a stream bed made from a road. Then a series of mud puddles, to a washed out culvert. The KLR was as always surprisingly capable, but I’d take an even more crawler version of first gear. I had a brief chance to bail out on a crossing gravel road of some sort, but fool hartedly struck off up a snow mobile trail to Randolph Gap. The trial is seeing some ATV or side-by-side use so rocks had some flow to them. But again first gear was a bit too fire hose as I climbed over stream bed and ledge. At the gap there is a ridge trail. To the north it is blocked by a gate, to the south it appears to go up Rochester mountain. Over the gap into Rochester, the road is decent, but perhaps closed to motor vehicles. Some startled hikers asked where I had come from. The dude turns out was day dreaming bringing his dual sport up there already. I like to think he was impress with the plastic laden KLR, with semi smooth tires being up there.
    Anyhow a fun area to explore, probably a lot more to be seen.

    How is driving on the highway/with a cross wind with the bike on the back? I seriously considered one of those racks for the KLR, but it already catches a ton of wind, and I think I might actually take off with a bike behind me. That being said combining moto and mtn biking is epic... Curious on your take.

    I put this bike together for my wife. Basically it’s a US Beta Evo 200 Sport which is not available here in Canada. Slow throttle, bigger counter shaft, long ride kit (7 litres total fuel), shorter shift lever, poly rear fender (stock breaks super easy and is $$$). Wife is 5’5” 115 lbs so likes the low seat and light weight. I scaled it at 178 lbs with full tanks. 31 inch seat height
    The photo doesn't show the new fender and shift lever

    A few people feel the rain. Most people just get wet.

    Not my rig. The guy didn’t seem bothered by much. There’s a pack raft on there too. He also carries skis sometimes.

    Kind of funny, I had a 1986 Sportster. Now five bikes and thirty-two years later, I have one again.

    Got this girl a few weeks ago. 2015 suzuki v-strom650 with 2,400mi. PO wanted it gone, and out fomrom under his Loan so hr sold it to me for the cost of remainder of loan which was $3,800!

    I was Stoked to score an XT model which includes spoked rims, panniers and crash bars. Exactly what I was looking for.

    I still have my KTM400 for enduro riding, happy to not use it so often since it's a spec race machine

    New additions include: protaper mid handlebar, acerbis x-factor handguards, shinko 805/804 tires, IMS foot pegs, weld86 skid plate, led lights, techspec snakeskin tank grips, and a new chain.

    Yeah MPPG, been wondering how it went. She's a beauty.

    Techspec for the win as well. I can roll my bike through the twisties almost entirely with my knees because of that little mod.

    Out for a little three day spin through the western Sierra. Still lovin' the Afruca Twin, and even the DCT. I ride in manual mode 99% of the time, although S2 and S3 aren't unpleasant. Defualt and S1 suck sweaty ball sacks, though.Click image for larger version.
