Good times

Yesterday was a beautiful day for a ride but I didn't bring the camera with me. Here are a few pictures from the Shenandoah 500 ride 2 weeks ago. Was such a good time.




My little DR in front of the lineup of big boys bikes ... I like it!




AND .. it's all part of learning when you get over confident, throw yourself out of a stream crossing too fast, catch air, don't land on the trail and land in a ditch into a downed tree instead... fortunately we were able to bend this clutch lever back so I could ride the rest of the day

Ah yes ... KTM... my boyfriend has wanted one for years and finally got one this year. It's an amazing bike. I am staying with my cheap little Suzuki DR200 until I have more riding under my belt and learn more.

Our dream is to get adventure bikes and go to Alaska together one day. That won't be for a few years though.

Ah yes... I am spoiled with the woods all around me. I do love it but hopefully I'll visit Hawaii someday! Guess that won't be a trip to bring my motobike.
