Hint, if you call it a fuel additive it won't seem like a thread derail.

Trust me. I've derailed enough threads to know.

Yes you are right. Should be talked about somewhere else. It is certainly fuel but maybe not for our bikes... :-)
More photos of our bikes, less talk.

Couple weeks ago in some trails in the Catskills. Got stuck about 4 times, and took me roughly 3 hours to get her turned around 180 degrees. No place for worn out Metzler Tourances! I will say I'm blown away at the off road handling of such a huge heavy bike! Ride it like you stole it and she eats it up like a dirt bike. Just don't come to a stop!

Scroll back a few pages. A little talk isn't so bad either.

Hey AVC,
I'm just outside the village of Catskill. Theres lots of dirt, just gotta know where to look
Google map Partridge run wildlife preserve and explore that area...
Where you from?

PS: your Stoltec suspension threads convinced me to do up my S10. Best money I spent on it.
Hes got a full kit coming now for my Monster 900!!! Great guy and Penske is the BOMB.

Randy

Sorry, you lost me at "healthy". Now what was that about chocolate?

Oh no, do not get me started on chocolate as well... Do you know the superfood guru David Wolfe from Canada (if I`m right)? I saw him here in Brisbane at a conference, much talk about chocolate indeed, extremely healthy.
No derailing, back to bikes!

Randy,

I'll look that up. I'm coming from North NJ. I actually ride with Nick from Stoltec in the Catskills quite often.

That Penske stuff sure is addictive. I have a full setup on my speed triple also.

Oh, it's real. And it'll freak you right out the first time you flash by it at 85 MPH. I had never heard of it and had no idea the first time I passed it. Damn near ran off the road whipping my head around to check and see if it wasn't a friggin' mirage!!!

The funniest thing I ever saw there was this ol' Snowbird couple stop there, get out of their motorhome, and walk right up and try and open the door!
