For what it's worth, the first day of the B route was the best I've seen, for a B route. White Knuckle Hill was . . . . Perfect.

"Get a life" the man says. Hmm.

I wish you could have seen the Rubicon at the Black Dog. Even more I wish you could have driven a KLR through it.

Fellow Inmates,

It is my great misfortune to only attend one rally a year, yes for all the dumb reasons. However, the Black Dog approaches (http://www.blackdogdualsport.com/bd_events.htm), and...

Pablo, have I seen that bike at LB? I'm on the sutured KLR.

Adventure is taking inappropriate gear to out of the way places.

Or so says the poster.
