I grabbed CJ's 2WD while he wasn't looking and took off!




Awesome bike!

Yep. It's probably built more solidly than your back, plus it can be fixed, not worth struggling against that weight on a slow fall, just make sure you aren't underneath it.

Just to keep this current theme consistent (getting both the 450 EXC and a 990), I essentially did the same thing in 2010.

Awesome fall day - long overdue run with BeemaKilla. Hit Powderface, then northeast from Cochrane up the FTR, west to Cremona country and home again. What a great cranium cleaner.









God's country.

Coastal scenery


Awesome weekend
