endurojunkie May possibly Own a  Yamaha Enduro?


Default Thump‚??n and smoke‚??n through the Southwest Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains.

So last fall I rescued an XT500 from a storage building and became the proud owner. I spent the winter fix‚??n and cleaning to get it ready to ride. It turns out to be a great bike for exploring the back roads of Floyd county. This past weekend, Andy / drew0512 came up to Floyd for a few days of R&R in the cool mountain air and exploring back roads with me.

One of our stops to get the county map out and figure out where we are?


I love it when I see these signs.


The view just past the sign.


Another good sign.

We stopped to take in the scenery from the Blue Ridge Parkway.


The MIGHTY RT!


And the MONSTER XT!


This is my first experience with an XT and I need to thank fellow forum member Ayteeone for answering and helping me with my many questions I had during my fix‚??n up and getting it ready to ride.

The XT has exceeded my expectations and I like it more every time I ride it. Thanks again for all your help.

I know "our" mountains are small (highest peak is about 6700 feet)compared to those in the west but, they sure are purdy!
