Tuesday, Jan 14 Ride

Recommended Posts

When I was 13 I bought an almost new Suzuki TS185. I rode that bike all the time for the next 3 years. That bike taught me how to ride dirt and street. I miss riding off road.

I have access to a 650 Vstrom, whenever I would like.....if some ADV riding becomes commonplace around here.

The GS will be better off-road than I am. I have been thinking about doing the TransOhioTrail this (or next) season. I want to use up these Anakee 3 stockers before I go knobby. 

I also considered doing the TOT on the Hyper.. :lol:

I've ridden about 75% of the TOT.  It's mostly gravel with a bit of dirt.  It's a good route to learn to ride in gravel.  Only a couple sections are challenging.

Pauly, Give me a shout out if you want to ride some ADV stuff with someone down below I70 in Ohio/KY/WV/Va

I prefer the gravel a day after a rain day, keeps the dust down and provides more feedback in the front end, IMHO

Also learning to ride gravel and two track with a (90/10 ) Tire like your Ank3's will get you use to the bike moving around under you and you will understand that momentum is your close friend. Then again you have all the electric rider aides on that bad boy so get your KLIM power ranger gear, Ride standing the fuck up and learn the BMW stare.😉

PS You will lose big time BMW/KTM Points if seen riding with Suzuki V-Strom bikes.

Good Luck, B.
