Dual sport ride: Montebello and Stevens Canyon Roads

Peter decided that, boy howdy, my XT225 looked like a bunch of fun and maybe hockey and snowboarding wasn’t potentially physically damaging enough. So he bought a 1990 Suzuki DR650S dual-sport. Yay!!

We went to Cycle Gear last night and bought him dual sport appropriate gear: O’Neal M10 boots, some sort of non-descript Fox gloves, and a Frank Thomas Strike Mesh jacket.

Ain’t he adorable?

We went out riding today; surface streets only (narrow one-lane ones, at least), to give Peter the gist of his new bike and gear. We had a great time and are hoping to get to Metcalf tomorrow (depending on how sore he is after hockey tonight). Yay!

The bastard can flatfoot the DR! Rarrrrr!
