Swollen, but better after a good night's sleep. I hope that I 'll be able to do Moab- I might have to load the 990 into the Avalanche and drive there for the Friday White Rim ride.

Dude... that camera/lens combo takes some great photos. I need to dump my cheapo point-and-shoot Sony for something a bit more up-market.

Hope you get to feeling better Leigh.. I sprained f'd up my ankle in February snowboarding and I'm still limping on occasion.

1800's era hand made nail I pulled out of my tire in the middle of nowhere; 60+ miles from the nearest town.

I kept it... It is a cool new memento on my desk.

Looks like you need to upgrade to some sturdy Dirt Bike Boots, instead of the flimsy street booots you were wearing.

I found some new favorite 950X trails this weekend. The next fuel station was 160 miles from this location...

I have a set- they are being taken to Moab in a car by a friend- didn't think I'd need them.

I threw the stock rims with original tires on for a roadtrip to NV last month. Does anyone at KTM actually put's these tires on their own bike. With only 3k miles on them, the head shake in itself was an adventure
