That's a good way to make a tenere look palatable though....

As opposed to what you do to make a GS look "palatable". I'll keep the Tenere.

Friday afternoon...

We're leaving from SLC/PC Friday around 3-4pm and chasing strawberry to Reservation Ridge, then on to 9 mile via Argyle. It'll be lean and mean, not a lot of social time. we'll ride till dark and then camp. If anyone wants to tag along for the walsburg/strawberry section and then bail out and slab home then feel free.

Wonderful..

Kev has me a little worried but he's definitely thinking on BRP terms, we'll get closer to 40-50mpg figured on most of the terrain. It's just the sand that guzzles... I'm also thinking the 1 or 2 windshield washer bottles technique might work too...

Might work out.......I'll check after the B'day party for 4 tonight....bajeebus....my family seems to celebrate Christmas and New Years in a certain fashion......

Since I'm not socially acceptable anyway, I'll continue to think of the chapstick as the key lube.....how many sets are sleeping out?
