Well. A month in Montana was great. I needed to get out of Philly for a little. Ending a month in MT with a week long offroad dirt bike trip was the best. Colin led us through a crazy off-road enduro adventure through SouthWest Montana. Such varied terrain. I can’t think of how to summarize […]
Part 3: Days 7-9 Day 7 – Stratton, VT to Copake, NY Holy hell it was a cold night. I was not prepared for the cold that came in during the early hours of the morning. It was 40 or below. I had to put everything on that I had. Brain got creative for warmth. […]
Part 2: Days 4-6 Day 4 – Lovell, ME to Benton, NH The sun rose and so did we. Dave had some coffee for us. What a guy! Going to Dave’s was the right move. It’s kinda wild that you can meet total strangers who will take you in and treat you as their own […]
Part 1: Days 1 – 3 After hearing about Ed and Adam’s planned month in Montana, an extreme FOMO kicked in for me. A couple of days later, I overheard Young Will say on a Thursday night pocket beer ride that he was doing the newly created North East BDR in August. Boom! FOMO problem […]
Colin showed us some dual sport trails that branch off of Blue Mountain, which is just south of Missoula. About 4 hours of dual/single track up and over a mountain which popped us out at The Jack Saloon, just south of Lolo MT. Ton of fun. Loose rocks are difficult on the XR650l. Especially steep […]
XR650L has turned out to be such a great bike. Last year trip through British Columbia the XRs did great, but noticed they ran pretty hot. So we asked Colin to install oil coolers on them while he stored them for us. We chose the Sutton xr650l oil cooler kit. Really nice cooler kit. Honestly […]
Look something like this:
Pocket beers to Love park. What else is there.
Kenzo woods. Get it in one last time. Nice knowing you guys.
Trip to Pittsburgh to Wheel Mill. Washed up for sure. Ilford Delta 3200 film.
– almost 50 degrees – super sunny and warm – Mr Bills burger spot around the corner off rt42 – most people there had off-road dirt bikes – spot was super fun – good hill climbs and loop around the blue hole
The film photos I posted months ago were my favs. I still have a ton extra film shots I didn’t think were great. Below are some unseen ones that were somewhat decent.
Finally got the film developed and scanned. Same exact camera/film setup I used on the Denver trip about a decade ago. I’m into it.
Def still fun.
I’m waiting to get my 5 rolls of film back. $250 to get it all developed and scanned and only a few places on the east coast still do it, bummer. Guess I’m not buying E-6 slide film again. I’m the meantime a few pics from my phone.
Doing the track events, I automatically get this “Grassroots Motorsports” mag. Normally it’s not my favorite but this month had a good article. When I was in college one of my autocross friends from the Honda dealership I worked at had a modified E30-M3 bmw. It was cool and he was fast. Crazy how expensive […]
Trip is over. Most of the guys flew home. Adam and I fly home in a couple hours. Hanging at Colin’s shop “number 8 wire” at the moment. Film photos to come in a month probably. Thought I’d do a quick recap. Overall I had a ton of fun. Really great time I’ll quote Quinn; […]
Seeley Lake MO to Philipsburg MO Great weather We do some more off road riding to get to Colin’s town which is Philipsburg which is just outside Missoula Great scenery out here. Cowboy movie type scenery with all the rolling hills Again – I’m shooting 5 rolls of film so I’m saving all the photos […]

The youth, and the very concept of having fun and fucking off, is coming under attack here in Philadelphia. It all started when the local crew of wheelie kids, One Way, epically shut down I676. Then, local celebrity and kingpin of One Way, One Way Corey, got arrested and served probation. Now we have cops chasing kids in […]
