Cool! It was nice chatting with you. And for the record, you guys up North deal with so much rain, props to you for riding no matter what. Most California riders that I know don't go out on rain soaked days like yours. I enjoyed riding in the mountains with the rain. Except for the slippery rocks and roots, it was a nice change of scenery for me!
If I didn't already have a big adventure bike the 690 enduro or 990 SMT would probably be in my garage right now. And now that I've ridden my buddy's new 500, I am sure that bike will find a space in my garage very soon.
Stay dry out there and enjoy riding in your beautiful state. I will be back up there next year to ride again for sure!
