Yes, i was being a bit tongue in cheek. The bike to date has led a sheltered life. I plan on getting it more into the territory it was destined for. But, alas, I am not likely to drive it up and down Redcone anytime in my lifetime like others here can/do. But a few trips to Alaska and Canada and all over the Western US should get it property muddied up.
