The Mrs. is out of town, so I have to stick close to the homestead this weekend.

This does not look like fun on a loaded GSA. Where was it?

Craig,

What tires are you running on your GSA?

That road is just a few miles north of Sparta NC. I was there scouting in the area for the upcoming FART ride event

There's a lot of tame gravel in that area, but this was the fourth gravel segment that I rode that morning. Would I do it on a smaller bike with other riders, probably. Would I do it on a GSA with other people, probably not. I certainly wouldn't do it again alone. I'm just not that experienced an off-road rider. Other more experienced off-roaders, have at it.

I'm running Shinko 705s. I'm on my 2nd set front, third set rear. They'd have lasted longer but I once forgot to fully inflate my tires after extensive off-road riding and rode home 500 miles on under-inflated tires. Really killed that set.

They are pretty good for off-road and yet not too buzzy on road.

I can see where those tires (80/20) would make that section even more challenging eek

That looks fantastic, but better suited to a KTM dirt bike, for sure.

So, I haven't logged on here in about a year. Glad to see the coffee group is still going strong. When I sold my GS in July 15 I just couldn't watch everyone else having so much fun. haha. Anyway, my GS has been well loved by the guy that bought her in NC. He regularly sends me pictures of their camping adventures.

When's the next coffee? I haven't gotten another bike yet, but I miss seeing everyone.
