Aluminum trailers, though lighter, will crack under the stress of towing.
Steel trailers flex a bit more, don't crack as easily.

Aluminum won't rust though.

How much snow did Salida get?

Is the Rainbow trail done for the season or is it ridable? how about 4 mile?

Thanks.

I'm sitting in Salida right now and there's no sign of any snow. I don't know about the Rainbow Trail, but I just rode in on County Roads 2 and 175 from CO-9 (just east of Fourmile) and there was no snow.

there won't be snow until I get this back together, then you can expect a few feet

Seat is getting Seat Concepts treatment.
Went from 13/40 to 13/45 (Ironman) and a new RK XSO chain.
Powerlet multi-terminal to hook up a Gerbing coax, voltage meter, and Powerlet.
The forks and shock are going to Dave Rose/STM after riding shearboy's Sherco (omg).
IMS 2.9 replacing oem 2.25 tank. Not a huge increase for the cost, but at 60+ mpg it helps.
