    Good destinations with a good riding companion helps. Exploring for the sheer joy of it can be habit forming.

    One of my favorites...maybe because of the cute music, maybe because it reminds me of the generosity of Judge Borneo who loaned me his bike for this ride.
    Hope I didn't make the same comment the first time I saw this video. If I did I don't remember!

    Does anyone else see the Gorilla skull? Thinking this is the entrance to Planet of the Apes 'er sup'in!

    Looked like you rode out on a dock at the lake. When by yourself you can sit for our taking in all the beauty. Wow, just wow!

    Some of these places are so darn pretty I find myself returning time and time again, a well as making you folks watch the videos again and again....like this place from the same general area as the above clip. Forum Members Evan, Banachunks and Boarder 225 have ridden here with me as part of a 3 day camp-n-ride. We had great times riding trails, jeep tracks and pavement over pacific crest and back.

    ...and yes, I have been known to ride on pavement. The TW makes a good way to rubber-neck one's way through National Parks taking in the big views with just turn of the head. One can find parking easier too, and sometimes a way to escape the crowds.

    ...and

    For me having a "Dual Sport" means being able to play off road exploring old tracks getting my fill of mud and rocks.


    Then once tired slabbing back via a curvy road at a spirited pace completing a big loop ride. All the while keeping an eye out for the next possible adventure.


    Gosh I sure love these little underrated machines.

    Since I see so few new TW ride video postings lately on the Forum here is a blast from the past:
    Openning weekend last spring on HWY4, my favorite trans-sierra road. Video is just of some pavement riding as I camped on east side of summit then rode every day to Pacific side to explore. Nice ride with countless corners and several switchbacks steeper than a 20% grade. Total blast on a TW. Bike does alright above 8,000 ft

    The week before Adam-in-Nevada and I did this ride much further downstream along the Carson River @ 5,000 ft. What a difference a week makes!
