    Nothing that exciting... just Frazier Park.

    And not many more pics... neither of us could find our cameras. Too bad... it was beautiful.

    Joel, needing a smaller bike seems to be your motto lately. I see in your future a ktm 450 exc with the giant loop mojavi bag holding all your goodies. Xr 400 is not a small bike.

    :nod the 450 i agree makes me :tb but for now, need to put together the 540 and see what happens.


    tim aka hilslammer rides one and he finds the 450exc more controllable and smoother than the 525.
