Sounds great , yeah im having same issues with the cities, crowds and noise .. keep to myself mostly because of it and just ride my bike daily heading towards the hills . Im from just outside Wasilla by Big Lake so we didnt have much for crowds and traffic . I am enjoying riding in jan for sure !!! bought this bike 1 july and have 7500 miles now ..back home i wouldnt touch it till June . i love exploring Colorado and the old mining trails and cabins .. Feels like back home with our Mining history .. Too Bad Temps drop this weekend id have a excuse to ride up your way .. I bought a old xt350 so i can go deeper into the woods with less effort last month .
