Where the Pavement Ends

Went out riding Labor Day weekend and found some great roads. Got a little lost and the road ended. We road about 10 miles and finally found the pavement again. Then it ended, again. We did a little backtracking but it was fun! Kind of tough on my wifes Buell Blast though. Thankfully, she has over 100k miles experience.

Thanks Rick!

DW,
The V handled great! I am not much of a dirt rider though, so this is an example where the bike is capable, but the rider is not. I did ok, but did not ride over my ability. Pretty tame dirt roads compared to some videos I have seen.

What a great area for riding though. Lots of miles of canopy roads.

We rode up to Tallahassee and did all the Canopy roads. Not very well known, but a couple date back to the 1600's. Old St. Augustine road was one of the first roads in Florida.

I have so much great video footage from that trip that I have not even begun to try and edit yet. Raw footage is awesome though. Not great curves but Florida only has a few anyway.
