Dualsport see if new bike is trustworthy ride
« on: June 13, 2020, 08:53:33 PM »
We did half of a run I once called Limestone County Dual Sport Loop, then worked out way to the Old Delina Store to eat where Klaviator had led a street ride to from the Mapco in Gurley.  We put it through mud, creek crossing and mild hill climbs.  Everything checked out.  There were a lot of bikes at Delina.  PepperLady's DR200 worked out fine we had 180 miles on it and didn't hit the reserve on the gas tank.  I was betting that it would happen around 150miles.

Stephen, it was great seeing you and Natalee today.  I'm glad that the DR is working out for her.  Hopefully I'll be able to do some dual sport riding with Ya'll soon.

You should lead a ride on that route!
