    Har.. yeah, some of the big dual sports might have trouble with that. I think I can handle it on the BRP, but we'll see. :evil

    I haven't taken her off road much yet, just down some dirt streets, but it seems to handle almost identical to my 81 YZ250H that I rode for 13 years, even though it's 80lbs heavier. Sure as heck doesn't seem like it. I was doing some donuts in the mud yesterday for fun on a nearby dirt road, and it seems to have some pretty good zing and roosting capability, and I'm running 50/50 tires with 50% tread at the moment. I'll be throwing on my new Kenda 760's this weekend. :deal

    We'll have to see how it goes. I was raised in Gladwin, so I'm used to tight single track. There's lots around the area up there... Meredith Grade, Leota, etc. :D

    I once rode Evart with a flat front tire. So I had to wheelie through the whole thing. I would have finished way faster but Kennedy was in front of me and kept holding me back. I always told him "if you pass me, we're racing", but......you know.:freaky

    ...I'm always up for some trouble! I'm working on getting my bike ready for the season though, so it's currently in a million pieces, what date are you thinking?

    Cool photos. TCJim and I rode 130 miles Saturday in Benzie and Manistee Counties. Majority on Honor C loop. LOTS of trees down from the 20" of wet snow 2 weeks prior. Only one we had to turn around at. Otherwise bike and rider got sufficently raked many times. Great to be out in such fantastic weather.:clap

    As a side note my back was in the quote "didn't want to have to pick my bike up" mode after two days prior use of my chain saw. Gonna be hobbling around next couple of days.

    Thanks for leading us through the wilderness Mike and Marco. It was a perfect day to be out in the woods, even if it was a little muddy.

    Bruno, you should have stayed for the rollerderby. Girls with tattoos and fish-net stockings on rollerskates knocking each other down.
