    Not by motorcycle but I drove like it was! A little squishier than I'd prefer on two wheels. Pick your poison to see some pictures: Facebook, Flickr.

    Thanks Ryan for showing the way a couple years back.

    Beautiful Jason, I would call that good quality time with the family. So, I assume that was an overnighter :kumbaya, and judging from the mud on the jeep, it may have been a bit sticky and trying on two wheels. I see the kids found the right spot... not to hot-n-not to cold.

    Thanks for sharing

    Like straw reinforced epoxy after it dried. Gah. Tried to get the boy excited to wash the Jeep but he gave up and ran away.

    For sale (just on Craigslist at the moment). Our two little ones want motorcycles and our two big ones want to be in college. Life is good.

    Thx for the input.... I think the deflectors will be next on my list. I just installed a Madstad, which really improved the buffeting, but I'd be happy if I could smooth it out a bit more.

    I heard those Black bikes are fast! :D

    fast enough for this old fart!:evil:gerg

    planning on my first serious ride on the S-10 here in a couple of weeks when I ride down to Death Valley/ LA and back... lookin' forward to it...

    the buffeting at 60+ mph with the OEM screen was terrible and at 90+ mph nearly beat my brains out... I got the Madstad bracket and a National cycles screen... along with the deflectors, that setup gives me a pretty quiet ride up to 80 mph or so, but above that I still get some buffeting... with my Arai xd3 helmet, I get less noise and buffeting than with my Nolan N43... so helmet type makes a difference also... ymmv

    ride n' shoot this weekend at IAMC... looks like fun if ya like to mix ridin' and shootin'

    I didn't realize the water got that low in the winter. I'd like to get my tracker down there before the river picks up this spring.

    Great family pics, that's exactly what I'd like to do with Cole here in the next few weeks. :clap

    Thx again.... I found the Madstad to be a big improvement by raising the screen and tilting back (still running the stock screen) . The negative pressure behind the screen was pretty bad making speeds upwards of 75-80 a blurry free for all as my helmet was getting slapped from side to side! I also get a pretty good blast of air through the steering head area, but I see no good way of mitigating this.... my hope is that the side deflectors might help to draw this air outward.

    Travel safe on your journey south... I suspect we'll see some pics posted upon your return.

    Speaking of "for sale" I'm selling my 2000 BMW r1200c if anyone is interested in a cruiser.

    Rick, when are you going to DV? I need to go to SJC leaving this Saturday. Too soon for you?
