    This is my first off road bike.

    I'm a little late to the game at 45, but better late than never.

    I've now discovered that there are three routes home from the parts store.



    I can take the fastest route through town with the 1 traffic light in town.....





    I can take the slightly more round about way with no traffic or cars to worry about....





    .....Or, I can take this route home.... it does take a little longer

    I only see one route to take, the last one.
    Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool!

    I'm with R80. Only one way home.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Brian..... do you REALLY think I have a choice?

    Only one path will get me home with a grin on my face.

    Rotate 'em! #1 gives you a chance to show off your sweet TW to town. #2 looks to offer some asphalt practice...maybe a turn or two to lean on? #3, well we can see why that's the popular choice here. All I see is a fun commute!
