Puppy Dog Route
Buck and I did part 1 of the PDR this past weekend.
1. Perfect roads for a V-Strom. Street tire are ok and 80-20s are better.
2. Dirt roads are mostly in great shape. A few had some gravel and washboards, but nothing the V or Wee couldn't handle. Only one road had significant gravel - The Natural Turnpike. But it was still cool.
3. Great views. But watch the turns. Not great sightlines in the forested areas. Stay to the right on turns - oncoming pickups are comin'!
4. Make time for this ride. One of the best trips Buck and I have ever been on.
