This past Friday I took my new Adventure on its maiden voyage. We road up Granite road, took some dirt fingers here and there and then made our way up and over Breckenridge Rd. The GSA is the best balanced bike I have ever ridden!
While riding along Breckenridge enjoying the green rolling hills and the cold air we decided to venture off on another finger and try some more dirt riding. The dirt riding is all new to me, well, except for the years of riding a mountain bike. I'm sure some principals apply, but there are many new things to learn.
Well, on mile 59 I started down a fire road and decided to drive left and right over small ruts in the road to get the sensation of the wheels tracking. I decided to make a u-turn over one of the ruts and got stuck. There was a moment of stillness and then over I went!! Ahhhhhh my new bike! The engine sputtered a little while I was standing back up. I kept her running, picked her up and drove it out...yeah. I drove up to a flat area to inspect the damage, however only found a little bit of dirt on the crash bars.
I got back on and continued on my ride.
I'm looking forward to the next!!
