    Loaded the bike... went for a spin... tows like a dream!
    Enough squish on the suspension it just glides along with the bike on.
    Not too bad loading and unloading by myself either.

    Darn accurate, shows where the road by our place goes from gravel to a few hundred feet of pavement then back to gravel.

    Well, the distance isn't the problem. The movers never showed up. No bike.

    Had a great time the past weekend with a great crew at the Shenandoah 500. Weather could not have been any better, a little less dust would have been appreciated :D Whoever didn't make it missed a great ride!
    Thanks to @xyloworx, @HooliKen, @poondangle, @freperry, @Zipperneck, Paul, Chris

    thought that was a creative license plate, met him later at the gas station and he stated that this is usually what happens when he rides

    my personal finish Sunday, a flat at Switzer lake and riding back to camp with zip ties keeping the tire on the rim. Most of those stayed on - worked for 16 miles that way

    oh right, you were there.... you should have stopped by at our camp fire Friday night. We had plenty food and drinks to share, plus all that knowledge we gained - ask @HooliKen :kumbaya

    Where was that? :wave

    Have to admit, the internet is not as big as it seems. Had a guy on YouTube recognize himself in my video. He was shooting a panoramic picture while I came by.

    My shot of him:
