    Yesterday was the last race weekend at the Boxshop speedway in Kezar Falls. They decided to run the track backwards. Looked fun.

    Right motorcycle, wrong road? Right road, wrong motorcycle?

    Shutting the bike off and using the clutch as a rear brake works well on rocky downhills like that when on street tires. Let's me keep my feet down if needed.

    Giving it a global perspective, asking for forgiveness instead of permission I believe will erode the delicate relationship land owners have with the 2-wheeled community. I'm all for putting that pig in places it will barely make it out of but as it is already an uphill battle for land use here in Maine I'd like to take the initiative and get the rules and boundaries clearly laid out before challenging someone on the trail.

    With that being said.....if it isn't signed properly, I'm going to assume its a road and I'm going to do my part to keep back the weeds!

    Its reasonably capable in the dirt. Rocky rutted downhills I like to use my genetic advantage keep the bike upright.

    Yup, good stuff . I used the resiliently mounted (rubber) units for both Stelvios.

    Excellent quality.
