    Montek wrestles that ginormous KLR down the tight single track ridgeline.

    Great RR Nightstalker! Thx for an awesome day leading us around Wildcat. I would never have believed a KLR could have made it through some of that ST we did today. Montek is an animal on that bike. I guess it really is 90% rider. :clap

    We are going to have to do a month of just Sunday rides so that Reidy isn't always left out.

    NS does a great ride report, thanks for an awesome ride. Montek is an animal on the KLR. Wildcat has some great stuff, and very nasty stuff that we bypassed :eek2
