I figured. Have you "tested" the AS crashbars yet, how'd they handle it if so?

Not "tested" as yet, will let you know how they perform if I do.

My wife and I will be test dummy's for some of your routes. We'll be in Flagstaff/Phoenix/Tuscon for xmas then have no plans. I was looking at Duran Canyon Rd and the area. What's the elevation there, just wondering about snow and road closures in Jan/Feb. I'll be riding my Tiger and my wife her Street Triple and we're not sure if we want to drag her DR along with us or not so mostly paved but she's not afraid to ride some dirt roads on her Street Triple. Would love to check out your gps tracks.

I'm heading up on Saturday. Where is Octoberfest? I'm going to see the premier of the movie "McConkey" in Squaw Valley on Saturday night. Wish you were still with us Shane…

Sunny Day

Nice warm day here in OC. We had some pretty strong Santa Anas blowing Friday and Saturday, but thankfully the gusts have abated without any major firestorms erupting. Took the Tiger up Indian Truck Trail all the way up to Santiago Peak. First time I took the bike up this route. Was a little nervous because there's some gnarly sections of this trail, but the Big Cat delivered me to the top without missing a beat

Just below the Santiago Peak high point with Laguna Beach way off in the distance. Nice!

Very cool. I would love to ride up there sometime. I have mountain biked a TON all through that area. Do you ride the same trails as mountain bikers or is it off limits to bikes?

I'd love to tag along if you don't mind someone tailin' you! (Once I get my Karoo's mounted).
