Great report and awesome ride!
I'll add that even though the Yardstick family warned me about Mil T's Chasm of Frame Sorrow
AND I had seen and navigated it carefully on the way in; I was just far less cautious on the way out. Upon seeing the telltale cattle crossing which had me reduce from 75 to 60 I forgot about the ditch until I was upon it - so i juiced it. A loud metallic clunk alerted me to maxium suspension travel exceeded
Fortunatley the fresh suspension job was forgiving as were the frame bolts for the skid plate and frame in general - at least to visual inspection. Whew!
The ride back on that road at sunset was sweet as attested to by several other suspension-trying moments - my trepidation for the SE on high speed largley cured now
The Yardsticks were eminenlty patient with my gas range issues which were not the most well planned for. Thanks Yardsticks let's do it again on the same ride or anywhere else!
