Thanks, o holligan

The plan so far is to ride probably Chloride and Titus Canyon Friday afternoon, we'll be roll ready by 11am or so. Saturday I'm sure will be rougher. I'll msg you our sites if that works.

pleasant valley, south park canyon

What's the deal on these this time of year? Snowed, iced in? Doable in a day with Mengle, and hwy back?

Or is it worth a day by itself?

Thanks,

what's the proper jetting

For a 1997 with stock pipe, insert out?
I understand the 1997 has a different, less restricted pipe?

Right now there's a super Trapp on it, way too loud.

Good thing that wire wasn't head height

Once came around a trail in UT barbed wire at head height..lucky the time I was riding a RZR.

Good luck out there.
