We just arrive from our off road trip from Sardinia, it was great, it's a trail bike paradise.

It ended well, just very tired. We spend more than two hours to descend the 9 bikes less than 1km... It was hard but once we where there it was no return.
I am editing the videos and I'll show you.
The problem was some people send us tracks from enduro bikes....and this was the result...
But the rest of the trip was amazing

This zipper is very fine tooth and waterproof, so it's finicky. I took the recommendation of someone else on here (in the equipment thread) and lubed it. No problems yet, but it's tough, and with the force I have to apply sometimes, and the tiny nature of the teeth, I'm not counting on it lasting forever.

Never had an issue with the straps.

We "old" bowhunter/riders use bowstring wax on those fine tooth zippers. Works great! You can buy it at an archery shop.

My favorite is ML6 Bowstring Wax.

No link, but:

BCY, Inc.
860-632-7115

P.S. Works like greased lightning on jacket zippers, too. A small tube will last you a lifetime.

Now here's some thing you don't see every Mother's Day...







And just in case you are having trouble reading the sign...






Yep, I'll bet folks just line up their Mother's for some new ink with that kind of special deal!
