Great! I did Goler Wash and Mengel Pass which were quite difficult. Altrider skid plate and radiator guard certainly paid for themselves. Roadie has less ground clearance as I'm sure you know, so I was bottoming out / high centering over some of the rock step downs and such. My buddy could hear the rocks pinging off the bike throughout the ride through our Scala bluetooth headsets, heh. Came through unscathed (ok, maybe a little scratch on a crash bar) with no problems.

Left at 6AM this morning from Panamint Springs. By the time we hit Owens Valley (395/190jct) the temp was 15º. BRR!
