    Good on ya for getting out there. The sporty was actually easy to ride all through the ANF as long as it was dry. I put more dirt miles on that bike when I owned it than pavement miles:nod

    Side note. Forward controls took some getting used to offroad, but like anything else, you adapt, and improve.

    My paycheck. :D
    I'm looking forward to tackling some more dirt roads on this thing, but I think I'm going to wait on it to dry out a little more first... if it ever does.

    The forward controls weren't too bad... it was mostly the front end feeling like it was going to wash out that was freaking me out. I used to race motocross, but the last time I had anything to do with it was 5 years ago. I'm eventually going to put midglides back on this thing because the forward controls are way too uncomfortable for me anyways.

    If you're charmed by Harlies in the dirt, here's the guru.

    I find myself laid up once again, sore as shit, sleeping's a chore, due to a very low -- walking -- speed get off in the ANF. A simple turn around after having taken a wrong turn. Will miss a few weeks of dirt riding, but with any luck, will be back on the bike long before the micro-dick hunters begin to blast away at the traffic signs again this Fall.

    Did about 220 miles yesterday on an f800gs in Vermont. Stunning scenery. Phone crapped out though.

    Once I turned the abs off, had a little fun on a few forestry roads and other areas on recommendation of renter and a local guy riding with me for a while. My Tallahassee planting may be short lived...

    52 miles mostly single track on my two stroke. Incredible rain while south of 267, soaked to the bone. But fun was had by all.

    Did 60 miles of 50/50 stuff yesterday on the north side and around miccosuke. Made it until the last 5 miles to the house...then torrential downpour. Got real fun with the knobbies in the rain on pavement.

    From what I hear there were some old guys out riding the ANF yesterday! Too bad I didn't know in advance I would have canceled plans with the wife :)

    His looks like a 98, I believe...pretty sure that was last year for the 50mm WP conventional forks (same ones on the little 400 I sold...). Think engine internals and the like are the same; just some different plastics and suspension upgrades. :deal

    Can't ride for the next 2 weekends due to work, though plan on doing some slab and 50/50 work on the XR while I'm at it. Adds some travel time, but dammit, I'm riding as much as possible.

    About to start ANF campout thread. 2nd weekend in December?

    Check the hunting schedule. We need to have a gap in open seasons for ANF at Cliff Lake
