First dual sport ride of the season

John's bike is still in winter hibernation. He's so lazy, he hasn't finished his winter maintenance and upgrades. I was dying to get out for a bit of dirt riding, especially after being away on a business trip for 3 weeks. With spring finally here, I needed a ride. 

Since I have two bikes, we decided to make use of them both. We each took turns riding the DR and the WR.  The WR, however, still had street wheels and rubber. No matter. The dirt was mostly gravel roads with just a few easy trails. Conditions were pretty dry -- so, no mud.  The bike handled remarkably well for street tires.

We bumped into Juames (Jimmy) as he and David had spent the day 
pre-riding some of the route for the upcoming 2012 Roaming Rally
