    Ummm... because the originator didn't conceive it to be such?

    Simple solution: Don't participate and thus you won't pee n' moan about what it's not to those that are having the time of their lives riding it!

    Just sayin' like it is, Slick. Don't like it, don't read it. Simple. Besides, I'm not the one that came in here and dis a ride put on by a fellow ADV'er.

    Scotty puts his heart n' soul into that ride. Didn't appreciate someone stepping in and talking it down.

    Ya gotta excuse Vlad just a bit Vin. He's young, impulsive, and just a bit driven by hormones more so that wisdom. :evil

    He's not a bad young man, just kickstarts his jaw before his brain wakes up good. :lol3

    Nice pics, Charlie.

    Agree 100%: It was a FANTASTIC day to be out riding. OLEARY and I had a SUPERB outing. Looking forward to reading Tim's account of it.

    I did not realize that!

    I was just wondering if the scarabs are bulky?
    I bought the cheap knock offs from cycle gear, on sale for $39

    http://www.cyclegear.com/eng/product/demon_waterproof_motorcycle_gloves/web1008621

    they are warm, and they are waterproof, but they are so damn bulky its hard to pull levers, hit switches and such.

    are the scarabs less bulky you think?

    I was hoping if charlie had some I could try them and see... Id return the cycle gear mitts and get the real deal if they dont make me feel like I have giant club hands like the cheap gloves do!

    They are great. The gauntlet covers your jacket sleeves and keeps the wind out. They are also very warm and not as bulky as they look but they do have a break in period until the limber up a bit. I can still hit the buttons on my GPS without too much trouble. Matt anytime you want to try them come get them. I got them from my son for Christmas. O'jay my kid didn't know, sorry.

    I haven't bought any new gear since last June when I got my Klim Dakar pants. They rock too!

    Get youself down to the Harley dealership and buy you some HD gloves. You can get them in black. As any HD rider knows "...black doesn't show dirt... or weakness* ". You'll love' em.

    :rofl

    I got a great deal on that Scorpion coat. I heard that they run REALLY small, and all they had in closeout were XXXL in the HiVis Yellow. Reviews said it was more like an XL, and they were right. It has a pocket to put your hydration pack on your back, and the tube comes out on your shoulder. No extra pack to wear. Really warm with the rain liner and quilted liner in it.

    And I get to be a Doc-Twinkie! :huh

    I put my ride report up.

    I knew you would find the humor in it for sure, Matt!

    I only took four photos... one was of my bike n' Little Blue (my venerable S-10). Not much interest there.

    However, I did post up a quickie :lol3 in the AR Ride Report thread.

    As for Clayton:

    Well... 'ya got me beat. I've been through Clayton on the hiway, but never been offroad out of there. That area is on my "one of these days" list. You know, that list that also includes trout fishing. :rofl

    What do you care, not like you got a bike that could handle 500 miles of single track ass kicking, ball crunching, racing anyway. :rofl
