    East Ala. and west Georgia is awesome. Snake I saw you was heading back through Tenn. and was staying at Hunters Campground. That place is sweet. You be careful when you go on Whytt road that creek crossing is a greasy bitch. Its got some slimy grooved up rock on the bottom and it will wash you and your bike. :lol3 Probly be a bitch by yourself and a bad leg if you had to pick that 650 up in the middle. Great riding there. Be safe.

    The down stream side of that is just a sandy bottom. Nice and smooth. I don't know why people insist on fighting those fins. When I lead rides though there, I always take the fins so people follow me across, because I am an asshole like that.

    Yeah I was thinking about stopping at Hunt's On the way home, but we'll have to see. And Hightest you I know my ability most of the time, although I do loose my common sense at times. This red sand here in Alabama is kicking my ass. Get pretty good at picking it up. Lol. Think I need more balls and twist the throttle more.

    That sand is a bitch. Builds cardio. Not from riding. From picking the bike up.:lol3

    I was so excited to go riding yesterday. About 30 min. in I failed to get over a big double log jump. When the bike fell the hand guard landed rite on the two toes I broke when I hit the deer a while back. I assure you that was enough to water my eyes. When I picked up the bike I realized I had snapped the electric start switch off the bike. Well I got to kick the bike all day long with two nicely blackened toes.

    I did this on my wrr in mud. No kick there and still in the mud. Had to pull the switch apart and short it out.

    My bike has an on off switch just above the start switch. I ordered a Tusk start switch only which has the plug for my bike and the jumper wire already in place to eliminate the on off for $12
