No, I think that syndrome presents as lower back pain caused by the imbalance of force created when muscles, formerly engaged in supporting the weight of a wallet containing large amount of bills, are no longer under tension and create a pelvic misalignment.

I'm new at this though I could be wrong...

Hopefully you can ride that better then your PW80 when you were growing up.......

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.

Ah, the ol XR 80, loved that little bike. Didn't you turn that into a pit bike?

I am actually heading up to see the old man this weekend to try and convince him to go to the vintage races up at Road America this July and spend a few days afterwards riding around WI. or MI.

I KNOW the bike is totally capable of doing this in it's sleep but with me on it's back... THAT'S a problem.

You should see some of the other shots Geek (and others) have of it as you come down a bit and start around that corner! I'm not normally afraid of heights, but I don't think I'll be trying Black Bear on my 990 any time soon... may hike it, though.

That looks super fun man! We've got some similar trails here too. Hopefully the snow on them is gone now and we can slip through.Good on you guys for getting the big iron out to stretch their legs!!

When I can bring the 990 down that in one piece, without tipping it over, and while keeping my undies clean and dry, I'll know I've truly become a mountain motorcyclist.

BTW: Do you have another shot of that which shows the waterfall and ledge a bit better? Isn't there something like a 5,000 ft drop-off right there?
