    Have more than 10 gallons of fuel capacity?

    OR

    Does your fuel capacity plus the number of grand you've spent on upgrades total 10+?

    That was "nowhere", about 60 miles South of Cle Elum, WA, just down the "jeep" road from Quartz Mountain.

    My riding partner said ........."C'mon, if a Jeep can do it, you can do it"
    Then when I was like "I dunno, man..." ,....so, he followed with..... "pussy" !!!

    Bad, bad idea. He was on a plated XR650R. And he was 21yo !!
    After about a mile of the absolute nastiest downhill I'd ever seen,
    I realized that I sure as hell couldn't go back up that mountain !!
    That was a loooooooong, loooong day. And night. And half the next day.

    Blinkers both came off somewhere on the other 3-4 falls that day :lol3

    Before that 3400 mile trip, I had the Black Dog SS relocator right there in my "shopping cart",
    .....and for some reason decided to not spend the $90 :huh
    WTF. Stoopid. After that "Jeep" road....it is for sure. I am stoopid.
    Snapped the original mounting flange right off, and created a 2"x1" BF HOLE in my motor!!!! :eek1
    I still have that broken-off chunk of aluminum as a souvineer.
    Rode the fugger 300 miles home after the trailside JB Weld temp fix to my engine case, though :deal

    A little piece of aluminum "diamond plate" tig'd over that hole, and she's ready for this year's BIG trip to CO.
    You showing up to the WestFest/RMAR combo, Geek?

    Yep. But fully prepared.
    This was day 17 of a moto camping trip.
    Breakfast coulda been better than boiled spaghetti with peanut butter, but it gave us enough energy to get out of the next 5 miles of that hell in the morning.

    When we got to the only small town nearby, their only pizza place had a 2 for 1 on large pizzas. We ate one whle pizza EACH !.....
