I camped one night out on the National Grass Lands outside of the Badlands.

Camped at a lake so I could swim. [clean up some]

My dad always talked about Deerfield South Dakota , so I had to go see that. No town left but a reservoir.

What other bike can you ride trails for hours then hop up on an interstate , set the cruise lay back and let it per like a kitten and take you back home.

I was looking for a place to purchase a trail permit and I came out on a road and a forest ranger was parked there.
I pulled up and ask him where I could get the permit.
He said "are you headed to Nemo? You can get it there"
I said yes I was but there is a lot of good trails between here and there.
He said yes there is, but I know where all the Rangers are at and none of them are out there, He said they all work for me and you will be fine.
Then he said " are you looking for a challenging trail? There is a trail up here on the left called Pilot Knob 8089 and it will drop you right into Nemo, but it has some rocky rough hills"
So off I headed on 8089.
It was pretty tough and I shouldn't have been loaded but it was fun. I never seen anyone else on it.
One of the only pictures I took isn't very good.

This picture from above was on that trail also.

I actually only seen two guys on any trails at all. They was near Nemo on side X sides.

Good to see you’re out and about.
Depending on the weather I am thinking of running back out there for another 2 day round of more trails here in a week or so.
I can just camp anywhere out in the forest so it will be an inexpensive trip.
I'll be packing much lighter so I can see more trails that way.

Hi to all! I hope you had a wondefull weekend as I did!
I had a on-road course in a Kart race track in Mexico. I had good time and is great to have courses to improve your skills and safety.
I will share some of the pictures.

It is very important to take courses to become a better drivers! and allways safety needs to be in our mind too!
The course I had yesterday they tought us some basic mechanics topics (like what tools do we need to carry among other things!) also we had a first aids recomendations too!
Next week end I will have the opportunity to go to a track day. I´m sure spending some time there plus some recomendations will help me to improve may driving skills.
I hope all of you will have a great week.

Good on you Pilleway, i em a huge believer of courses. It is a scary thought that the majority of people driving on our roads today, 2wheels or 4wheels essentially got their license through a bare minimal. An upgrading/defensive driver course should be mandatory for all drivers.

Thanks, and you being in a first class country you might imagine how is in Mexico, we do not have any law requirement to be able to drive a bike in the road. Yesterday we were 25 bikes and at least 50% had less than a year with their bike and are in public rodas and never had a course before, we had a Mechanical theory session and I was surprice because some of them were asking questions regarding of the very basic for there bikes, like what dayly inspection had to do, or one had the main rr braking bracket bolt loose and did not know about it, so I was attonished hearing those comments, but the good think is that finally they had taken a course yesterday! Courses will help us to improve our skills and correct wrong driving habbits!
