Riding through the Woods and Mud

This past Sunday I took the 883 out for more off-road adventures.  This time I brought my GoPro and a tripod.  I set the tripod up in various locations and took video of me riding past it.  Of course, I took a lot of photos with my phone too.

Here's a long-distance selfie taken with my GoPro:

The sky was covered in a thick blanket of fast moving clouds that made for an ominous backdrop.

However, the sun did peek through every once in while.

This road made for some good photos because of the vanishing point.  It was sandy and quite slippery in some sections.

As I mentioned, I took quite a bit of video.  Here are a few stills from the forest section:

However, the most fun I had was in this part where there was standing water from the rain showers on Saturday.  I started cautiously just riding through the edge of the puddles before taking a chance closer to the middle.

It was cold, wet, and very dirty but I was grinning ear to ear.  I felt like a little kid jumping in puddles.

The bike was (and at the moment I'm typing this, still is) absolutely filthy.

Here's the video:
