Inspired by the "690 Enduro" thread and because I didn't see an existing thread, I figured I'd start one. I know a few others are DS'ing their Beta, like Chris and offworlder. Here's a 600~ mile 4 day ride (well, more like 3.5) I did last week (copied from advrider): This was a last minute trip for me, and my bike wasn't set-up correctly. I needed bags and lights and some minor junk, so I ordered from places that ship fast (got Wolfman e-12's and Cyclops lights) and finished getting everything together the day before I was to leave. No time for a shakedown ride, which I wasn't thrilled about, but what can you do? Sunday night I had my GPS loaded, and was planning on starting in Jackson (via truck), near Six Flags. Got up early Monday and it was raining pretty hard (crap!) although the forecast looked ok. My ride fell through (crap, again!)... so, I started calling places to see where I could park my truck for a few days. Wal Mart came through (sweet!). My bike is sort-of of a big dirtbike posing as a small adventure bike; I went up one tooth on the countershaft, and with the new bags, it was perfect for this trip (other than the seat).Started pretty close to Six Flags near the Poor Man's Safari:Obligatory bike with wild animals in background pic:Not many pics today, but many "roads" were like this:Got pounded by rain in a flash storm- didn't even have time to zip the vents on my jacket or pants, and got pretty soaked. Hah, good thing I paid extra for Gore-tex. So, I deviated from the TNJT a bit and tried to find the closest fuel stop for some cover. Even while I could barely see, when I passed roads like Central Ave (?), I still road down, because I was afraid I'd miss something good. The weather cleared up and I finished the day at a cheap hotel in Absecon. (I didn't camp on this trip.) Here were my GPS stats:Tuesday morning, the local weather channel was calling for gloom and doom... not a good day to be riding solo with luggage on dirt/sand roads. I needed a place with a garage, and Google said AC was nearby. In front of the hotel:I hightailed it to the cheapest garage I could find using my 4 year old iPhone (3GS) and no wifi... Bally's. When I rolled into town, the locals in the 'hood were staring at me like I was an alien- seriously, it was the same reaction I see more worldly adventurers get in third world countries on their GS's. While in line to check-in, I found a pretty good rate online ($54 pre-tax), and was happy about that. Meanwhile, Bally's was getting pummeled by the storm:One of the workers said the water was deeper than during Sandy.Water was rolling in the lower level doors, and I have to admit, it was pretty cool to see. First equipment failure of the trip... my Klim Badlands jacket wouldn't unzip all the way. It was like getting out of a straight jacket with the zipper closed.No stats today, because there wasn't much riding. I bummed around AC all day (and night) and was antsy to get back to riding. Continued, because I went over the TT pic limit.
