We have a ton of great places to ride so close by, both dirt and street. Dirt trails that actually start 5 minutes from Downtown.

I took this about a half hour from my house.

And lots of mountains that you have to hike a bit to get to.

That's beautiful @admin, but it also begs the question -- why don't you ride an adventure sport bike? (My guess would be you bought the 09 before the FJ came out)

Because to be honest, adventure bikes cannot keep up with my dirtbikes offroad. Too big, too heavy, clumsy, wrong power curves. Adventure bikes are for guys who want to ride an occasional dirt road and call it an adventure. I'd much rather just keep putting plates on my dirtbikes and go on real adventures.
 
Once in a while a guy will show up to our dirtrides on big BMW's or KTM's and get hurt. Last year, it was a guy on a BMW GS who of course wrecked and did $3000 damage to his "adventure bike" and broke his clavicle and two ribs.
 
Year before it was a guy on his big KTM who shattered his knee and ripped the damn fairing off of his "Adventure Bike".
 
Their biggest adventure was the ambulance ride. We have stopped posting out dirt adventures on Facebook because we fear that someone may get killed trying to dirt ride a 500 lb bike.

@guru would have to give up his snowmobile.
Nah -- it's only a couple hour drive to the mountains of Flagstaff :)

See, that's the cool thing about the Rockies where I live. I'm out riding yesterday, but am taking tomorrow off to go up to 7000 feet just an hour away to go snowmobiling. Here, you can ride in the morning and be in the snow in the afternoon.

It's gone. I sold it.  I was tainted and I couldn't ride it anymore. >:( And I even spent the money.  ::)
