Feeling very depressed viewing the pics...Ride Sunday 5/24/2009 Dual Sport or not.

Master of the Ride (yes you with the curly hair in the black Rallye2 Pro),

Would have loved to have been on the ride. Missed the communication. Any future rides that might be "Mormon Friendly." The Sunday part woudl have been a challenge for me and others.

BTW - did you take the HP2 or the GS?

Rode solo today. Immigration to East Canyon.

Mice ride, only saw a few Harleys and a couple of Wings.

Dry except for 10 miles around East Canyon reservoir.

Here's a picture just East of Morgan.

That's a lot of miles on XRR seating......looks like a great time.....I'm going to need the infamous Airhawk cushion before I run my XRR on another day like that one......

Which droids cut the lock..........?

First ride on the new super enduro.

Holy shit!

Handled the slab very well.

Handled hard-packed dirt roads very well.

Chewed up 4x4 roads.

Doesn't like sand.

I took it on some double track. Nothing too technical, and all was well, but then she just bucked me off. I never saw it coming. One second I was chilling, the next second I am ass-over-tea-kettle.

I think I need to make some adjustments to the rear suspension...too much buck in that mare.

These things are awesome, really really capable bikes but they ride so well you forget how big they are till things go wrong. Then you realize you are riding a 500lb bike.

I agree. I rode this bike for about 1/2 mile, if that much. All I could think of was much like a dirt bike it was. There're definitely orange toys in my near future.

There is still a smoking deal on one at ADS in Ogden. I bet you could get out the door for under 10K with some goodies to boot. Brand new 2007 SE!!

I'd never do another wheelie in my life if I could just have the other back.




Besides, you can't take a pill to do a wheelie..... but you can to, well, you know.
