I hate cleaning the damn thing out. I've had to remove it once and scoop mud out of it. I keep it on just because I worry about the fork sliders getting banged up.

I was way off in my estimation that the ditch was not as deep as the puddle. Inmate Squirrelly Girl volunteered to push while I rode it out. Unfortunately, she got to experience the literal meaning of "Mud in your eye". The bike made it out in true Ditch Witch style, opening up a new drainage channel for the stagnant ditch water.

HAHA!

That's the one gsd4me. Where the cops have been brochuring bikes for moving the damn scooters.

Although lately it appears as though scooter AND bike riders have forgotten how to park.

It is crazy how some people park there and the room they take up. A severe lack of consideration.

We have limited parking as it is... *takes a deep breath*

Ah well.

CHAOS!

Not sure, you can find out more here about this bike.
