Before heading out for my big adventure I talked to every experienced rider I could find. I got a lot of great advice about gear, packing, and preparing the bike. One thing they all told me to do was a “shakedown ride”.
This morning I went on my first off-road test ride. My friend Keith followed behind in his Jeep and documented my first day off-road. I had three goals: get some off-road riding experience, test out all my new riding gear, and do some experiments to determine the best way to document everything when I’m riding alone. This was a learning experience, and I learned a lot!
