Obstacles In The Road


I think the craziest obstacle I have been hit with was a bird, not so crazy but scared the crap out of me and I felt terrible….on the road itself??? A garbage bag full of what I think were dirty diapers.  So, nothing totally out of the ordinary lol.  What about you?

RideApart Review: 2013 Suzuki DR-Z400S


SOURCE: HELL FOR LEATHER

The Suzuki DR-Z400S is an incredibly capable motorcycle. I’ve had the chance to ride one the past few weeks and I took it on a 300 mile highway journey, a 200 mile offroad adventure, did multiple days off road, rode it around town, and commuted from Long Beach to LA (about 25 miles) on a regular basis. I found the little thumper to meet or surpass my expecations across the board and miss the little guy after giving it back a few days ago. Continue reading

Adventure Touring with the KTM 990 and Yamaha Super Ténéré


This is a really good video showing 2 riders who are just regular guys enjoying  a Yamaha Super Tenere and a KTM 990.  Wes is funny about riding the Yamaha off road.  This is really worth watching the entire video….one of the better one’s out there I think because they actually show a dump and accident.  Real stuff.  Enjoy.

Both Yamaha and KTM have dominated the legendary Dakar races for decades. Wes and Grant do their best not to fly off a ridge while taking the KTM 990 Adventure and Yamaha Super Ténéré deep into the Angeles National Forest’s system of fire roads, trails and creeks.
