Dual Sport ride with Joel Part 1

Joel and I headed out this morning for a ride on our motorcycles. We headed North through Francis Marion National Forest on fire roads up to McClellanville for fuel. North on 17 towards Georgetown put us at the Santee River. From here we headed inland up the river to Jamestown for lunch. Along the way I got stuck 3 times, Joel got stuck very badly once. We explored many dirt roads, trails, and gas/power lines along the way for a great day out in normally bad weather.
When I got home, there was actually mud inside my clothes and helmet. Yeah- it was fun. DH

Dual Sport Ride with Joel Part 2

It took us an hour to free Joel's KLX from the hole it was buried in. Ended up with the rear wheel completely submerged. I ended up stuck knee high in the quicksand as well. Good stuff.

Quick Update

I'm tired so I'll write more later. Here is a summery of my weekend though:
Fri morning Aaron and I drove to Jackson, GA for the 12 Hrs. of Dauset race. Got there, set up the pit area and went out for a pre-ride. Noticed that my bars were moving and after some investigation found that I had broken my stem faceplate. Nice. Got a lap in anyways, made a phone call and had a new stem on the way. Stayed with family and ate at the mega Chinese Buffet. After a trip to Wal-Mart for supplies and people watching we hit the sack.
The race start went well, got the holeshot and rode off. Got passed bu some 6 hr and team guys but passed them back by the 3rd lap to lead again. Flatted. Rode 3 different front wheels. Didn't crash this race! Anyways- lapped 2nd place 8 hrs. in and was running 2nd overall out of all solos and teams. So........I got to stop an hour and a half early because it was mathematically impossible to get caught. Got in 13 laps @ 10 miles each. Could have easily done 14 but didn't need to and with the Helen 12 hr. this weekend played it safe.
Got to go-DH
