Yo what’s up XLADV peeps! I’m stoked to be here! I live in S Oregon and put about 20k on my bikes annually. I like it to be mostly dirt, but very happy with scenic twisties and fit in lane splitting when appropriate.

My favorite rides have been just about every ride I have been on: bits of Oregon Back Country Discovery, BC, essentially all up and down the West Coast. Haven’t done Mexico yet but helpfully soon. Just getting into doing the rally’s starting off with this years Mammoth Aug 31-Sept 2 rally with none other than XLADV! :) 

For money, I used to river raft guide, then became art teacher, now professional artist (pottery, paintings, and water features). I’ll be making some limited edition mugs for the XLADV rally! I’ll share a link to check them out when the first one is done: www.rossbenjaminwood.com 

I ride a 2006 BMW GS 1200 and freaking love it. Most versatile bike. Take the wife two up on multi day trips. Then rally the twisting with Ducati friends, then bomb the off road Oregon roads with my KTM friends. 

I’ve had my fair share of mistakes but have learned that attitude and mindset are the best tools for just about any challenge.

Great to have you.  Special Edition mugs you say?  Hmm, what libations should we sip from those around a campfire in Mammoth...? :thumbsup:
