The pictures do not capture the level of difficulty!

It looked difficult enough to me!! :-)

How did you shoot these photos? I'm gonna guess Go Pro with a remote?

Did the hunters want to join you or shoot you?  ;-)

Yeah, some our route was very challenging!

I use a Drift Camera-similar to Go-Pro in function-and set the camera to take a picture every 60 seconds, then just go and ride!  The result is varied pictures, and I delete pictures which are uninteresting. 

The hunters were deer hunting with bows.  They were very nice and we had a pleasant conversation!

Amazing scenery. That looked like a ton of fun. Always nice to capture experiences like those.

Looks like fun, but I get a 404 when clicking on the photos.

Campbell and I found a very challenging unmaintained road that climbed from near Thurmond to the top of the mountain and came out on 41.  It was barely 2 track and seemed like 10 miles but was probably more like 5!  All told we rode maybe 70-80 miles of gravel plus maybe 100 of twisty pavement.  We will be back for more of the same but of course neither of us were taking pictures.

I like those 4 pictures. The first looks like a pleasant gravel road. The second a somewhat rutted road requiring careful positioning choices. The 3rd is a muddy morass. The 4th doesn't look much like a road at all to me.


But that's the way it works. You start out on a decent road and it degrades a little. The next thing you know you're somewhere you might not have gone had it looked that way at the start.

Was it the same road he and I were on last year on our Z125's?

Yes it was. Lucky we turned back on the Z125's, they would of never made it. The road was not easy on a dirt bike.

Yeah, the dual sport/adventure fun is that the terrain changes quickly!  Lots of fun! Or lots of pain! 

Heading out Sunday to ride some of these same trails on my new Husqvarna Enduro 701!
