You are correct about it being a great book. It has helped me learn about and explore some new areas. I haven't upgraded to the new edition, so mine doesn't show 65 routes. Still have a few more left to do, but I'm surprised how many I have done over the years. The author of the book is an active participant here on advrider. He goes by "byways".

Give me a call when you get back in town. Sounds like you need the old "tail upgrade".

Too bad you didn't hook up with Infidel. Could have shared the
digging until he split for the boys side.

Careful Hick. Sounds like the "oldest line in the book" to me.

You met a "cool guy on the internet." This is how these sexual predators work. Next thing you know, he'll want to "arrange a meeting", where he will gas you, stuff you in the back of his van, and make a wind chime out of your genitals.

That sounds about right for the old "tail upgrade"

SAT lite bike DS ride?

a few of us may ride Sat on the Grantsville Front single track... intermediate technical with some advanced rutted hill climbs, tight switchbacks, root drops, etc... just whatcha need... definitely not a big bike ride, but i suspect dirty-diesel will school it on his trick XR650L... I'm taking my XR400.

It'll take the better part of a day as we'll do some side routes to get there.

Hey GISkev, where do you start that at? I would love to ride it, but I can only ride on Sundays. Can you point me in the right direction?
