Durty Dabbers National Dual Sport

I finally got to ride the Durty Dabbers dual sport. I'd been wanting to make it to this one for years. We had a great RCR group there with a mix of newbies and veterans of the event. My overall experience with the event was great. Despite a downpour shortly after arriving at the campground, the weather the rest of the weekend was awesome. The food available was great. The routes were well marked and laid out. The roads and trails were challenging! I left feeling very beat up but it was very very fun. I hope to do this one again next year!

The routes cover some ground:

I may need a mid-sized dual sport

I got talked into taking the 950 off-road again when I probably should have taken the small bike. This time didn't go as well as last, I slid the bike into a nasty mucky mud hole and there was no way I was getting it out by myself. Luckily it was a busy weekend and within 5 minutes we were able to get a truck to winch me out. Next weekend I'm definitely riding the small bike. It needs a shakedown before I do the Durty Dabbers dual sport in a few weeks.

Here's the video proof of my bad judgement (or bad luck?) in action.

Taking the big 950 onto the trails

I got talked into taking my 950 out on a little dual sport ride that was a bit more off-road than I usually do on the Adventure. I'd like to ride this stuff again on the Gas Gas sometime.
