Its OK to ride your Concours14 in GRAVEL

Someone posed a question "is it ok to ride a C14 on gravel roads????

Of course I replied:

I do it all the time. The worst gravel i was in was going up a STEEP long driveway in the mountains of TN. Straight up, deep gravel. Traction control I bow to you, it was easier to get the bike up that hill than to walk it without a bike. Wish I had a pic.

My favorite gravel was offroading at Moab, Utah. Infinite gravel roads, traction control uphill, antilock brakes downhill, and KiPass to help me endure.


Also sand can be challenging, as is the case when offroading in the desert


As you may suspect, this road ran out into nothingness quick, but the gold (mine) is at the end.




But if yer cautious and the non-adventurous type, stay on the streets! Such as:

Key West


Vegas




Or even Tampa!

Steve - by any chance when you were on Freemont...did you eat at the Heart Attack Grill? I did in January - supposedly a real bike stop, but it was shit...pure shit burger. Mickey Dee's is better, and that's not saying much - LOL

Fuck yeah u can ride gravel. i done some decidedly ugly logging roads on the 12 too. doesn't do the bike much good when it gets real tough (it takes on the harley shake) but it does work.
