Elite Industrial Action

No off-road opportunities around my house, so I've got to take the action where I can get it. A few miles down the road from my house is a previously unexplored decrepit and partially vacant industrial park, so I took a quick jaunt into the area.

Fear of mugging was my constant companion...

...Or at least it was on my mind.

A nice scenic photo. (Yes, I know I am missing a side panel. It's not rally missing, just not currently installed for ease of access to the motor)



And of course, no rocks, or trees to be wary of....just potholes that would swallow the Elite whole. This sucker was DEEP!



Sorry. That's all.

I just feel I've neglected the poor Battle Scooters Forum.

You call that pothole deep? That would be just a bump on the road of life here in Costa Rica.
Remember, potholes are just up-side down speed bumps.

Found a little trail today in the 'hood.





Then I went for about a 15 mile ride around the local roads.







Top speed appears to be 35 on the straights and 41 downhill. (indicated)
