So this is the longest ride for me on this new to me DRZ400. I had a great time. (cold but still fun) It reminded me of when I started riding 20+ years ago. Boy am I old.

Any hoo, it was way more fun than staring at my quote screen hoping that something, anything would happen.

I am now on the lookout for a bigger tank, bash plate, handguards and a rear rack. Hello ?? bill from 5th gear ?? I might need a consultation. Only five minutes of your time.

We hit the snow fairly quickly after turning off the highway just past the Chief. Saw a few quad riders who were having no problems with the snow.
Scooter's DRZ is brand new and is still shod with the stock Trailwings, and they really don't like the snow...

So back down the hill and off to Starbucks for a hot chocolate and stares from the crowds who must have thought we were idiots for being out on bikes at -1

Sweet pics.
That first one looks like the six mile mark.
On Tuesday we rode to about 8 or 10 mile mark where there was no more car tracks. The bike got too squirly to be fun, so we turned around :(

Very nice! I've got some nice snow pics from around this time last year, riding around the same area. When the snow gets deeper, or more compact...going up-hill is A LOT easier than trying to come back down-hill!

I don't think it is the way to Indian Arm, but it is in the same area as the sart of that road. We got a late start so didn't want to go to far into the woods.

Man that was a cold ride home.

If you want heavy you should try my 1150gs. The Suzuki feels as light as a feather in comparison !!

hats off to you both for the trek up there this time of year. I ride my mountain bike that exact road for the test of metal race. Cross the 9mile bridge, left and up to the bluff. down the powerhouse plunge. I would love to have a dual purpose and travel the other direction(right after the bridge) and head up more.

Pat, Thanks for posting those pics up. I've been away from the computer for a while.

Definetly have to get rid of those Death Wings. I could see I could kick your ass on the road with them though.

I thought I saw pics of you with your XR650R at the end of the road at the top of the Indian Arm.

You know how to get there.

I purchased the DRZ for that road and the Harrison Road. Of course many others.
