See you out there soon!

Yep. 500 XC-W. Just started wiring up the street legal bits tonight. Should be a fun change from the GS so long as I don't want to pass anyone on the highway.

Considering how you could ride that GS, I am going to stay out of your way on that thing.

Took the boy out today for his 1st mud ride.

It also happened to be his first day without training wheels on his PW50. Her was doing great by the end of the day, after a few initial faceplants.

Agreed. I was really impressed with him today ~ he's got a a natural eye for 'picking the right line' and going for it. It's was a little sloppy out there... but as its said, a bad day of riding it better than a good day of work.
