How you like those Anakee 3s? I'm very impressed with mine so far, with the exception of a pretty good whine around 63 MPH.
Any damage on the drop? I bent the hell out of my shifter on a similar looking nap. Love the resilience of steel

I put 2400 miles on them over the last 7 days on a trip to Yellowstone. They seemed just fine, I did a lot of twisty road riding and they never felt wrong. They did feel squirrely when going around curves with "tar snakes" on them, if you know what I mean. But my last set of tires did too, so I'm not holding that against these tires.

I didn't do much dirt, what you see in the pic was the road to a camp site. I was backing the bike up, doing a three point turn, and I lost my footing so I had to let it go. No damage except a little dent in the case lid. My mirror worked itself loose too, so I had to tighten it up. But I didn't discover that until the next day at 90 mph on the freeway, lol.

That wasn't a car

Although I have been known to wait for traffic of various sorts to light paint for me, this time I came prepared to do it myself

I don't know how you did that photo with the road all lit up but it sure looks cool.

Not that big of a secret, some photographers spend stupid money on fancy flashes...

But me?

$29 D-cell LED Maglite.

Can do magical things if used right

The Baja Squadrons have been used before as well
