What a beautiful picture. It makes me want to wonder down that road to see what's beyond. Thanks for sharing.

Man that is a cool looking old XL. The KLR is ok too I guess.

Baron's Life: Actually it is in the Colville National Forest near the Metalline Falls area. The photo was taken last October on a very rainy day. This stretch of forest service road was a nice ride, others required a little more attention given that I have the KLR's tires setup for road service. We (Charlie and I) are planning on going back up into that neck of the woods this year as well.

Lady Ridesalot: I think that curiosity is what motivates many of us who ride, perhaps a "Well Known secret" among us Two Wheelers that cagers can't appreciate; the addictive drive to go just a little bit further down the road (or trail as the case may be) to see what is around the bend or distant horizon. We can't help ourselve can we?

Charlie: Maybe someday the KLR will look as fine as that ole XL. The way I baby it though, I doubt it.

That XL is just cute! And the fact that its old and still stands out is amazing. I like. The roads look good for a ride in the woods.
