Spent some time testing this weekend in Eastern Washington! We had great success with some new settings, as well as a great time!

10 minutes later the SE will demonstrate why a high fender in mud is better than the low fender on the ADV also on the lake bed....

Uncle's Big Bend trip, flat numero uno de quatro! Well at least I got good at changing flats in the field. Need to make some additions to my flat fixing, or is that fixin' kit?



Santa Elena Canyon



Walking to Mexico, how many do that, I feel like an Alien?



View from Chisos Mining Co. Motel



View from Starlight restaurant



Sunrise from motel



Starlight restaurant



After flat numero tress.



Look who my kids bumped into at the airport while I was in Big Bend

Were your flats caused by nails or pinch flats.

The guys I went down with were on WR250's and they were trailering so I put mine on the trailer as well. I really wanted to ride down though.

First flat was a pinch flat, after that it was because I didn't have the correct size rear tube which caused the next two. I finished the weekend on a 110/90-19 extreme duty tube that I bought for $20 from a local in a pickup truck in Prisideo, still not sure how that happened. The last flat was a slow leak in the front going down the paved road after a day in the State Park, fixed that one with some slime and CO2.

Never thought about fire ants, I'll definitely keep that in mind from now on, thanks.
