Just eat more and get rid of that bony ass. You people have
too much time on your hands.

Your work looks great. I do have one of those $20 ATV seat
pads somewhere.... oh yeah it's on the KLR.

Woodside

Woodside is a great place to ride from. Go west from town then south at the first canyon. Mostly rough,rocky narrow 2 tracks that follow N-S canyons.Go south in one then a little west ,then north through the next canyon. You can zig and zag for a long time in that country.
