FJR1300 going to the By Way Boogie in 2010
After riding down various dirt roads this one being about 6 miles long and according to my map went all the way though to the paved road I needed to be on, as I went further down the trees and bushes had grown towards the road so far it was barely large enough to fit a car or small truck and was rutted and potholed to no end. You can see the road just above the bike beyond the trees. So close yet so far. I had no idea of the creek conditions didn't know how deep it was or if it had a rocky bottom or silt. Decided since I was on my own and dropped or stuck bike would be the possible end of my day I decided to headback and find the pavement and head around.
Lesson learned here. In that part of the state if it is a local county road or random guy's name on the road sign it's probably not paved and rougher than it looks and possibly ends in a creek or stream.
Not long after getting off that road my Radar Detector's aux. output shorted out and my GPS went on the fritz to be useless on the rest of the trip.
