Currently living in Kechi, a small town north and east of Wichita.  Looking forward to the ride in Garnett.  I have relatives there, my Uncle was the county representative for many years there and my cousins still live and farm in the area.  There are plenty of creeks with bottom ground and a nice area of the Flint Hills with many hills and valleys.
I have owned numerous motorcycles and my current new to me is a 2020 Suzuki DR650.  Without 25 miles on the clock I began my modifications.  I like the bike now although there is a slight pulse at higher RPM's.
Living somewhat out near gravel and dirt roads in Kechi I'm usually looking for an excuse to go for a ride.  I have a riding buddy that usually goes with me driving the tried and true KLR650.  Our last outing was heading from my house south down some nice gravel roads.  We ended up around Rock Kansas and picked up some fuel in Udall, well anyway I did.  The KLR vs DR fuel tank size is not even comparable.  We accomplished about a 70 miles round trip outing in about 2 hours, nice relaxing ride with exploring some new roads I had never been on.  That's what it's all about!
