First good off road experience on the Vee
Before today, I'd taken my bike off road 2 times. Both went terribly. The first time I rode motorcycle trails at a state forest and had junk tires and I would just crash in the mud... repeatedly. The second time I had equipped my bike with Shinko Big Blocks and rode some trails that were sugar sand. I only crashed once going through water but once was enough. The bike wouldnt start, acting like the battery was dead. It took hours in Florida mid day heat for help to arrive.
After that, I was pretty hesitant on the big adventure bike thing. It's big, a bitch to pick up, and tends to get banged up. I thought maybe I should just stick to touring on the street.
However today I found an open area behind a baseball field. Not big but just enough to get my hooligan on. One side was soaked/boggy the other was dry. I took the bike out there and had a :|:|:|:|ing blast! I had it pitched sideways, back tire sliding kicking up grass and mud. It felt so good having that big bike tearing up the field!
May, just maybe, there is something to the dirt side of ADV...
