    Five Miles In First Gear

    These TWs are so versatile in what we can do with them. Cross country tours, highway pounders, adventure touring, backcountry camping, surfboard hauling, Moab mauling...you name it.
    Well today I just used mine to run the dogs , poking along in first gear the whole way. I felt like a 12 year old again with his first mini-bike. Managed to some impress myself with some of the places these bikes can get to at a snails pace....
    Plumbstraight left some blood here on a group ride once when one of the trailside bushes leaped out and attacked him as he was climbing up....
    Was nice to ride high enough to where sun had melted out granite boulders....
    Just a casual ride to enjoy the scenery and see what critters had left their tracks.

    Title was supposed to be Five Miles In First Gear.
    Was 4.9 miles actually without an upshift, forgive my exageration.
    Point was that these TWs can be so entertaining and usefull in so many ways .
    Some Group Riders may reconise the terrain from summer days without the snow.



    This was just a simple chase me dog walk since mine are not as well trained as Secret here:

    Awesome views. Better you were able to get there on the TW.

    Hidden Content A ride in the woods helps me relax and release tension. The fact I'm dragging a body should be entirely irrelevant?
