    Clayton,
    My wife used to be like that - but after 37 years of putting up with me and my silly shit, she just says "Fun is relative...you go have fun .....and........hook the trailer to the truck before you go!" :lol3

    Enjoy the adventures with her! :wink:

    This was possibly the worst place I have taken my GS, but once I headed down the trail and it started raining i was committed and could not make it back up the hill. The only option left was down.

    This ride report was named: GRAVITY MADE ME DO IT

    Its good to see a 500 lb GS bike where it has no proper business being...on river rock and in the mud with some suck-@ss TKC tires. :-) Good job!

    it isnt often that a picture successfully conveys the "roughness" of a trail. which makes me wonder just how bad it was!!!

    Yes, its one of the many beaver dams we encountered. They're all over the place up there... and it seems like the trail always goes through the slop below the dam.

    the hard stuff I've done on my GS Ive been too busy to take a picture. I am either alone or busy trying not to slow someone down. But the hard stuff that I've done doesn't compare to many of the pics on this thread.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Looks like the big one? I hear thats a great upgrade for off roading. I just need the extra cash to have one of my front wheels done. Anyone else running this set up?


    To the guy riding this bike on this trail..........we salute you!:devildog
