Dual Sporters & Thumper Humpers & More Dual Sporters & Thumper Humpers Compilation
Backroad Bob's Motorcycle Dual Sporting (Vol. 2) Dual Sporters & Thumper Humpers
The following twenty-eight magazine articles begin with eighteen stories compiled from fifteen years and 43,000 miles of dual sporting from Vermont to Tennessee. From the legendary Blackwater events, to buying a dual sport, to dual sport history, to touring on your dual sport - they're all here. Four reviews of a perennial Pennsylvania favorite, the Durty Dabbers Dual Sport, coverage of two National Hare Scrambles Events, some advice on what and how to carry a weekend's worth of necessities on your dual sport, to a humorous look at dual sporting are included as well.
The second half contains ten articles and takes a look at Thumper Humpers - the endearing term used to describe the individuals that tour on their single-cylinder four stroke motorcycles (Thumpers). These riders think nothing of going cross-country on a motorcycle the average "rider" wouldn't take across town. Some of them compete in endurance rallies and 1000-mile days aboard their Thumpers. One article reveals what good road bikes Thumpers make and another makes a case for the dual sport as the perfect beginner's bike. Seven others recount Thumper events from 1996-2000 held in Pennsylvania and New York. The final story takes you along the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal in the scenic Delmarva Peninsula.
