    +3 on Mpls lock and key, I wanted an extra key for my KTM 625 SMC and it used an odd small key size so the guys at Crosstown Cycle recommended them to me and they were able to make a spare.

    Just got a new G650GS - I'm looking for a quick (but hopefully not final) jaunt on gravel/dirt around Rochester, MN tomorrow. Anything close that I should check out? Didn't find much in my search.

    Go to Quarry Hill and roost all the walking paths like my uncle did back in the 60s before all the people showed up. Should be good for twenty minutes or so before the cops show up. :thumb

    On a more serious note you can follow some county roads by the river up near Hwy 60 / Zumbrota and such - I don't have my gazetteer handy but I want to say county 11 between Zumbrota and Mazeppa. That or down by Rushford, both about an hour away but good easy gravel roads.

    There is an insane amount of salt on the roads up this way. Dust clouds of salt. I could taste the salt when I was driving down the road.

    At least it's a "dry salt", hate it when it's wet and sticky.
