I'm transferring to csueb on a bball scholarship, two more years to go haha
Yeah, I figured they'd be alright for the fire roads. I'm also pretty big into jeeps [cherokees], so I've been plenty of places up there. (I've done the Rubicon, Fordyce Creek, etc). I really want to strap the XT on the back of it, but ~350lbs is a bit much for the back I think.

Congrats on the scholarship! I've been stupid and paid my own way through the whole time while working... so I feel sorta like an old fart there (only 27...).

Yep, nice red and whites.


My low beam went out on my XT last week. Found a new lamp at the auto store for $9.00. Found that I had a spring missing in my headlamp assembly. Ordered it and it's backordered and the last one in the U.S.! Starting to get tough to get OEM parts for the old bike. So mine is in the garage waiting for parts, again. I could ride it but that's why I have 2 bikes.
