Synopsis

Dual Sporters & Thumper Humpers -
The following twenty-eight published magazine articles from the Backroad Bob's Motorcycle Adventures Dual Sporters and Thumper Humpers CD 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.
