I am thinking about replacing the clutch pack on Dana's bike prior to the Continental Divide ride if we can't get the notchy/weird release feeling to go away. Its got a lot of miles of it and with the tall gearing and off road riding it may have a bit of wear....time will tell.

How's that quote go about necessity and invention???

Just about time to head to the garage to work on getting the rotopax and pelican case mounts completed.

Tried the cot and bag set up last night...a bit too firm, but better then sleeping on rocks

Garage is now manageable/workable!

I also did a few things on the 2 stroke...replaced the grips, replaced the cracked headlight housing, and fixed the headlight on/off switch. So overall a pretty productive day!

Just a warning--this F.I.N.E RTE "dinning" establishment only takes "greenbacks". No visa, no checks, (haven't asked about trades on kids yet...)

My guess is they're not big into indentured service.

I'll post the videos tomorrow morning... Blaster and Dorito, thanks for the 2XRTE and Instruction. Better that with all the adventure riding... This trip was the cheapest for J4S. EOD3MC I think your girls must have bruised their face from smiling so much.

Need to do this again sooner than later

Training Day

It all starts so innocently...





Ah, to have the talent of a 7 year old..




Then off for some SoMDAvd fun....

Then a few cones, a tree and a rut...








The making of the rut...


Remember, ride the rut like a 7 year old does...you'll be fine...


A little tree grinding...


A shout-out kudos to our photog--Lance!

Looks like good times yesterday, wish I could've made it!

I ended up trying to find a short on my dad's Harley, still no luck. At least I got some last minute dirtbike riding in on Saturday.
