I finally had the chance to get play off-road this year. Yes, I know I rode my Ural on many frozen lakes which is also off-road, but that was three wheels. It was nice to get out in the forest on a bike. I quickly realized two things. One, I am out of shape and was out of breath way to fast. Two, I am way out of practice which caused number one.
I wasn’t very efficient or relaxed at first. After a few minutes of riding standing up, I became more relaxed. I still wasn’t very efficient which contributed greatly to getting tired too quickly!
I was wearing my Alpinestars S-MX Bionic armor underneath my Tourmaster coat (with the armor removed). I think after I get to the forest next time, I will find a way to strap my road-coat to the back of the bike, maybe with a bungee net. I got pretty overheated even though I had all my vents open and it was only 75F.
There was a lot of water around, and many of the trails were under water.
I rode for about an hour, and then I headed home exhausted with a big grin.
I acquired a bunch of mud, so I gave the WR its first bath of the year too.
Enjoy the short video I made of the day:
