Been down Black Bear in a Jeep! The cover photo of the 2005 "Jeep Calander" is me going up Pokipsey Gultch......there is a good reason I chose Engineer Pass for a solo trip on the KTM fully loaded

All run trails of the area......here is the edit with the Jeep cover photo!

Replaced with the stainless steel units when I ordered the bash and pannier racks. Thought it matched the racks better and avoided the future scrape > rust > paint cycle on a high contact part.

Plus... when you ride with a young buck who has sustained serious head trauma and flies the jolly roger wrap, you know there are going to be some flying W's and munched signal lights in store!

Works better for me at home if it's your fault, so let's just go with that.

I wanna play too!

Picked up a leftover 2011 this morning, I've never been so in love with something so ugly in my life.

Here she is, unfarkled, unscratched and unadventured. Hope to change all that soon.



Every time I look at this bike, I can't help thinking it would be what the Imperial Stormtroopers would have ridden.

I know, I'm finally starting to get over the ugly. Although, I changed a lot!
