Yes...we went to school in Tempe @ the main campus. We did not ride at all back then. I spent lots of time at Sycamore Creek and Four Peaks on my Raptor... but no dual sport at that point.
Here is a pic of my bike and my son. We attended the "Swinging Bridges" ride in Wentzville, MO a month or so ago. Amazing good times. Great people. Nothing special on my bike yet as far as mods go. It's too new. I bought it last November from a guy in Kansas. In Nov. 09, I bought this 09 with 800 mi for $3,500. It was perfect...No scratches. Now it's got some. I put on a skid plate, Happy Trails alum. black panniers, got a tank bag and a waterproof duffle and I'm ready to go.
Here is me getting ready today while my daughter plays with her new itouch.
