^^ I'm not going to lie the best part about crashing in the dirt is there aren't any cars around to run you over! Well unless your buddies are chasing you in trophy trucks or something

Further explanation desired. Dumpsters in the background are, hopefully, not a part of said explanation.

We got all official-like endorsements and rewarded our underemployment by draining the savings on a two KLR650s. Just a couple of snaps, we ran up to Carter Lake and back this evening.

Alright! Those bikes look too shiny to drop though. Let me know if you are planning any adventures in the Boulder direction. Switzerland trail is a popular not-too-difficult route to play on.

The procurement of a frame and ammo cans for panniers is already underway... She is more brave than me, she did the dual sport kick-over test in the drive way but she's got nerf bars and bark busters so it's not really fair. I'll just wait for an actual dump to crack plastic.

That hurts to watch no matter what the bike is! I like the KLRs but isn't the 650 extremely tall? I'm a shorter guy so I tend to shy away from the huge dual sports thought I've ridden a BMW GS650 comfortably.

Had a great ride this morning 120 miles of canyons and only put a foot on the ground 3x from my place all the way around including gas and pee stops!
