^ I've done that exact same thing twice now...Both times the bike did a 180. Popped off a Gobi once, second time just filled my boot with mud.

Never grabbed the exhaust tho.

These things are good at finding invisible ruts sometimes...

Sorry NL__


As you can now tell from experience of what it like to touch a "HOT CAT " on a tin roof may I suggest that you look into a nice
set of "COOL TO THE TOUCH" WINGS you can thank me later

+1 on the Wings. Sound awesome and cool to the touch. Get 'em in Canada from Alternate Cycle in Kamloops. Google em. The owner Kenny is great to deal with.

Typical riding around here, not quite as scenic as Geek's area


You just have to throw the bike on it's side, drag it a few feet, lift, keep riding.




White stuff to get through every once in awhile




Green stuff too




Just a little lower elevation...




Nah, nuthin' to ride around here...

I have a Wings can coming straight from Gorazd in Slovenia, since he had some Winter specials going.

Talk to CJ...he's got the conversion for you:

Here is mine. Just did a run-in trip about 1500km of dirt up to The Snowy River. Glad that wore out the stock rubber as it was atrocious.
