Glad you guys made it back. The 08 and newer bikes will steer with the front wheel instead of only the rear. Give it some time. Its a much better handling bike.

Speaking of bikes. Here is pilo's rave prep on my beat up 525.


It feels awesome. Thanks Pilo.

24 hours of notice.......

Kickstand up for me at 09:30 for the BADB ride to Great Basin tomorrow morning. Diddling and dallying will be acceptable, as will adult beverages if you chose....in fact, you can be an adult or a child in your own mind both days.....or extend the trip through Thursday with an eye to the sky.....and that coming storm.

Carrying food and shelter for 1-2 nights....lemme know if you can go.....

Sorry, I haven't been able to get ahold of him today - no idea where he might be. I don't want to hold up anyone else who may be able to use them.

I'll get your info to him ASAP though.
