Installed the super beefy CJ sidestand relocator. Being built out of recylced WWII Sherman tanks, it should hold up well


Starting to come together...

Beauty of a Sunday morning ride. Had to be quick as the wife has to go see her patients at noon so took it easy and just explored.

Just got done with a three day weekend riding the forest roads and trails in West Virginia. First time I've gotten to really ride it offroad. Damn I love this bike.





With the exception of it throwing me 15 and into some thorn bushes...great ride this weekend

Took the new bike out for first dirt today, went around Mt. Si up in North Bend WA, some road washouts have created a new creek, but no worries. What truly incredible bikes these are - big smile still on my face!

Spent some time in K-country west of Calgary this afternoon - reminds me how fortunate I am to live in this part of the world. Looking forward to the winter roads and the back country opening up on May 15.

dried.
