    I can't even freaking talk about the ducks, especially since they are barely beating state.

    Anyway, I didn't get a chance to ride it. I didn't want to risk running into a gate or anything. I kind of regret that now, I might go tomorrow.

    Ran palomar again with the Garmin VIRB and a few buddies.

    1. i had it set to "zoom" so dont try lifting your head to see more sky, it doesnt work... ha. i have since fixed the setting.

    2. the mic is a known crappy issue, so the wind noise is what it is... no fixin it now.

    3. i actually dragged hard parts (@ 8:47 i dragged the skid plate) cuz i was pushin the ol' girl to her limits and that is not recomended...

    4. NEVER PASS on the fookin' INSIDE (@ 1:46). i didn't see that leathered up clown until he was in front of me, nearly shat my shorts...

    www.dualsport-sd.com is a good forum for the loval area and learning all the dirty road options out there

    good to see annother Strommer in the area myself and Stoke from this forum are also local Strommers and do a bit of off road stuff. You are in a Mecca of awesome paved and dirt roads :)

    hope to see ya around if you ever see a dirty slightly beatup blue strom running around thatsbprobably me :freaky
