    Traction is categorically non existent everywhere ive ridden down that way lately. Lots of dust though!

    Working on a connection between the k loop and north mesa dropdown road that skips all the gray dirt atv bullshit.

    Oh, we found a whoop or two haha

    The sticky-icky (decent rainfall and tacky trails, not the chronic like you CO boys were assuming) was in full effect today.

    Buying a Tenere. Selling my WR250R and Victory.

    I believe Doug would kill me. If I bought a dirt bike from someone besides him.

    I have heard nothing but good things about the tenere. Rick has one and rides it more than his ducati.

    I was overdue for moving on. I like all the bikes, but need to trim the fleet.

    How is life? Still riding the glade of back to pinion mesa?

    Both. Hit pinion two weeks ago and 50 miles through the glade last weekend. The dirt should be pretty good this weekend.

    kind of embarrassing another helicopter came when we could have rode out. I had a small mental freak out at the beginning and then we couldn't seem to set things straight.

    Ya sort of

    We have been out 3 times for a total of about 45 miles ,I keep finding more stuff that I feel needs replaced every time out

    My motor rebuild has been solid and not used a drop of oil (Knock on wood) but there have been other issues with the drive train and chassis.

    Pretty tender. I can walk around ok though. Lots of bruising, wife says it's not going to call off though so that's encouraging.
