    Yes it is I have two friends who are just so impressed by the bike capabilities on both ends. In fact my one buddy was taking his toy hauler to a ATV Adventure park with his family this weekend asked me if I would let him use it. So last night in little more than an hour we converted the bike back to it OEM wheels set up and he ready to go. Off roasting.

    Good ride today. Rocks, mud, and views.

    Bike just keeps going like the energizer bunny.

    Alone? How long (and hoch much dirty words) did it take to get outta this?

    I do "explore" new trails alone pretty often.
    Coming from "this trail looks fun", to "WCGW" and ending with "damn freakin nasty sh*t, get outta here big girl" regularly.

    Btw.: Your area looks way more fun to end a day with swear and sweat than mine :thumbup

    Yeah, I mostly ride alone and I was there for a bit. I tried to move forward first and that wasn't happening because the bike was sitting on the skid plate and pegs on both sides. Tried to move back but that didn't work as the rear tire was in a hole with a steep mud bank behind it. "Plan C" was lifting the front into the air to get the front tire free of the rut and past the bank and tree on the left. That let me drop the front into the main mud hole that I had been trying to avoid.

    Here is the bike after I managed to extract the front.

    This is the mud hole I had been trying to avoid as it has a reputation for trapping bikes. Took this photo when I walked back to get my helmet and jacket.

    I think I recall asking about carrying some sort of recovery gear, looks like you could have used it!

    You don't even want to know...

    If you think his garage is crazy, you should see his gun "house". He buys ammo boxes by the pallet. :)
