Subscribed! Sounds like a much needed trip to clear your head and get things back on balance.

Holler if you need anything in TX or MT (peeps in both states).

What, did you off-road the K16?

Don't get me wrong, the triple motor is very nice and has character, and it beats the heck out of the RT's boxer, but how is it smoother than the K16? :ear
