I wondered about that too. His explanation was the flooded roads caused that damage. I can't imagine taking my Burgman on any sand roads. I've had it on gravel a few times and didn't much like that. I never feared gravel with my now-gone Electra Glide. It always felt stable but the Burgman does not exude confidence on anything other than hard road surfaces. I subscribed to that thread - if anything new comes up I'll post it. The guy is obviously quite adventurous.Great reading.. but it stopped in October.. I put a reply on it hoping for an update.. Great read.. stuck in the sand in Death Valley, wowza !
He's a photographer. Which explains the shots.Great read! His pics were fantastic! Wondering what he does for a living?
I don't think Hurricane Sandy managed to devastate that road in Death Valley (California) that he got stuck on.Last October was Hurricane Sandy; it might have been that all of his local roads turned into sand roads for a while.
I had been riding for about 40 years when I took my first MSF Basic course and still managed somehow to learn things that corrected some of my bad habits. You can learn new things after you start riding you know.He seamed quite determined to make sure the bad habits he could pick up from teaching himself to ride would settle fully, so they wouldn't be disrupted by taking an MSF course later.
What's the abbreviation for inapropiate gear all the time?
