    Total pros, that approach the difficult job professionally with a systematic approach and vigor to make first tracks. Truly impressive!

    And yesterday’s ride was 50 more miles of single track stoke, well 5 was a Jeep trail to this lookout. But then it was 6.1 miles of single back to the van.

    Glad I checked back in to Flatistan the other day and found this RR!!! Awesome pics and videos. Need more beer review though. Idaho is on the short list. There's another Beta guy here who lives out there, and occasionally posts up...Idaho has absolutely EPIC riding. Spent my whole life thinking it was just potatoes, but I was wrong.

    And that’s why I turn down those offers to test ride! Already sent out some feelers, haven’t purchased a new dirt scooter in 8 years and my old guy sold his biz.

    Pix from test said rip......

    Curious about obviously plating in FL, the different maps, and traction control??

    With the trick suspension I could bounce and blip!

    They do make a two fiddy exc. You could probably find a leftover for under $8k. 2021s already rolling in.

    Forget the 250, go with a 2stroke 300! You will love it.

    ......and consider the Beta. Come with a clean plate-able street title.

    I agree with Haystack on the 250 F. I had one for a year as a spare/bike for my son. I liked the gear ratio on my Husky 501 so much more and the 250 didn't really feel any lighter or more flickable. Now that 300 2-stroke, that'd be the ticket if my 501 ever got stolen.

    By the way, jealous AF. Looks like an epic trip...thanks for sharing it all...

    I’ve never owned a 2stroke and they look so fiddily? But I want a lighter machine for the skinny. Who knows but Fu’s due for a new dirt scooter.

    Here’s the latest stash.

    And perhaps my favorite can art just cause the NASA reference. Solid suds as well!

    Camp tonight is the middle of a field. In the morning they could potentially launch 25 balloons on the other side of that line?

    Did I mention how sketch it was going into camp lady night? Rained hard and it was muddy. I used basic off roading tactics like momentum and purchase to skirt the slop.

    Excited to braaap tomorrow, been 3 days.
