I've got an old steel percolator and a sterno stove. Will that do?

Closest to "off road" here is a gravel alley. That or one of the local pothole strewn roads. Now taking the Geezer down that thing would be an adventure. Buz, ya up for it??

I think I have done that trail and it is a BLAST.



This summer we are going to ride from Snowville UT to British Columbia on dirtbikes. All fire roads and single track with the Magruder thrown in the middle. The most fun you can have offroad.



And for apres ride entertainment I'll introduce Buzz as "my metrosexual friend from California" to some of the good old boys in Elk City.

Go do a few laps around Wrigley field when the Cardinals come to town. I hear the infield is less than smooth then.

Throw in a purple couch, some halogen lighting and a few bad Joni Mitchell records and I think we're on to something.



I'll bring the Nutmeg!

I'll have a couple of tobacco chewing, horse beating, fire fighting women with packs of camels rolled up in the sleeves of their tee shirts all ready for you.

There's usually an idiot or two who tries to do the trail in Ford Exploder or some similar phony ORV and gets stuck. You could use the back seat for the couch.



No Joni Mitchell. You'll have to settle for Howlin' Wolf.

I did take the Ducati down a rutted dirt road where we rode for the naked bike story. Right near that Indian Casino.



It was quite an adventure even if it was only about a half mile. Michelin Pilot Sports aren't a real good off road tire.

Great read Martin. You picked the right bike to do it on.



Only option I'd ask for would be a scabbard to hold my VZ24 (in 7.92 x 57).



And a big chrome luggage rack to haul back them tasty critters.
