Well I just busted the right handguard on my bike while trying to mold it to a new position after adjusting the break lever.

Sooooooo....if it's easy dirt stuff, I'm game.

It's steel. Thanks for the offer, but the new shifter lever fit like a glove. V-Strom shifts a lot smoother now too.

Petevan owns the B

Tood-Squad had asked SweetPea (Petevan) for a guided tour
of his backyard. He invited me too cause I'm SweetPea's uncle
and I found out later he needed someone to take pictures.

SweetPea grew up here and knows the rocks by name. He has
a new WR 250 that despite a little tall gearing was perfect for
what he was about to throw at us.

Our guide.



Todd has a soft spot for KTMs and picked the perfect parking spot.



This is Todds youngest son Eli (E-lie) He rocks on a CRF 230.
I promise not to harsh on KTMs as trail bikes. Lets just leave it
at it wasn't their day.



Todd and his son Ethan.



Todd-Squad...



Pete might as well remove the front wheel for how little
he uses it.





In fairness to Ethan this section was a Beeoch.
You can see how far his front wheel is sunk in.



Some times gravity just wins...



Perfect father/son moment or KTM boys just stick
together. I'm trying to remenber where the Jap bikes
were, oh yeah, they made it.



Pete took us on on some really fun trails.







I was a little disappointed with the the views.



Very fun day no one got hurt and the weather was perfect!

And thanks guys for offering to take a picture of me....NOT!

Fantastic Ride

Great ride and great company. Thanks for asking me to show you around.

Now lets do it again!!!!!!

PS. As Pluric pointed out the section where the KTM boys are stuck is really steep and technical, as usual the camera just can't show that. Props to Ethan for making it as far a he did, it was a lot harder then I remember. For reference to the Utard's that are familiar with the area the first trail we did was Buckland Ridge trail and the second was Tuttle Creek.

Took me most of the afternoon to get it on. Drilling out the stock ignition switch is definitely the crux.

Hopefully not too much rain tomorrow...cuz she's so damn clean:

Go ahead, if you want that new bad boy to look like Frog's bike in

Had a good day riding out of Hobble Creek to Diamond Fork and eventually HWY 6, then back up the Strawberry Ridge area.

More Pics Here.
