Rode the big old Honda to Parker & back on Thursday, off road most of the way & got on some of the Parker race coarse 380 miles rt. Trying to keep in shape for DV. Was reminded again the XRL with me as the pilot struggles in the deep sand whoops. Had my first encounter with a cow on Santa Maria River Rd. Did a little bump & run. Luckely we both came out fine. Looking forward to DV!
