The $15 a month that I paid for my 300EXC insurance (full coverage) combined with a registration at less than $50/year was far less than a single ticket. I'm sure I could have gotten off cheaper by having liability only.

Also, when you ride 20 road miles (or more) in a 100 mile day at a dualsport event, it isn't only riding off-road.

Hmmm. I'm going to clean it, slap it back together and see if she purrs. The slide is a bit ratty, I might be interested if you have one. Shoot me a pm when you get back from CO.

Are you running an FCR? From what I've gathered, it's the ticket for this bike.

I was thinking of heading down.

I hope the gravel isn't too deep. My brother was thinking of going along on his Ducati with street tires.

Awesome! I was just there last summer for a week riding the trails on my 'Berg. Awesome singletrack. Some of the trails we rode are closed to motorcycles now. Teocalli Ridge Trail is one that comes to mind Damn tree huggers. Make sure you check out Doctor Park Trail too. That was one of my favorites, especially the section through the Aspens right before the steep switchbacks. That is supposedly closed to MC now too...

Ugly can be overlooked when one is behind the bars of a monster like that
