Today we have Tobin Vigil, owner of Buchanan Bicycles in Norman, on his KTM 950 Adventure motorcycle.

A true motorcyclist, Tobin believes, like me, if it has […]

Jamie Rich is riding his BMW F800GS motorcycle to Bill Dragoo’s Adventure Rider training camp at Sundog ORV park in Lexington, Oklahoma. Both Bill and I owned F800GS motorcycles back in about 2008 but only kept the bikes a year and swapped them out for R1200GS Adventure motorcycles. I thought the F800 was a nice […]

Mo Copeland on a Kawasaki KLR-650 photographed with Toyo VX-125 film camera.

Mo Copeland sits astride his Kawasaki KLR-650 motorcycle at Bill Dragoo’s Adventure Training course in Lexington, Oklahoma. The KLR-650 is a VERY popular dual sport motorcycle and lots of riders own and love them. I personally have never been a big KLR fan but I am sure the KLR riders will say “good, that means […]

Jim Clark on his Suzuki 1000 VStrom motorcycle at Bill Dragoo's Adventure Training camp in Lexington, Oklahoma

Jim Clark sits atop his Suzuki VStrom 1000 while at Bill Dragoo’s Adventure Training camp in Lexington, Oklahoma. I have ridden a VSTROM once – those run strong. A bit heavy (what am I saying, I ride a BMW R1200GS Adventure) but very nice bikes and priced right from Suzuki.

Portrait of Tarren Shaw on his BMW R1200GS Adventure motorcycle at Bill Dragoo's adventure rider training in Lexington, Oklahoma.

He has removed his windshield to keep from damaging it during the training, but otherwise it is nearly identical to the bike I ride on a regular basis. This portrait was taken at the South Canadian River at the Sundog […]
