    Go ahead with that, Big E. My new signature line is gonna be:

    ALL ROADS (OR RIDES) LEAD TO ZEN MOTO

    For various bike repairs, of course!:rofl

    Wish I was there with a smaller bike than I have right now.

    That looked like an awesome ride

    I've seen you ride the wheels, foot pegs & shock off of that thing. You would've been fine :wink:

    That was an awesome ride. Any more technical than that begins to be work.
    Charouleau with the bonus loop is just right. If you want to get a real work out, go with NS's on his exploration rides.

    I'd say it's pretty close to riding the back way to Crown King.

    "The Boulders", is that the Erzberg of Arizona?
