    I am certainly not serious, just riding around having a good time. I was talking about seriously challenging terrain. That XT surely is cramped. Kim is complaining already about the seat being too close to the pegs and she is only 5'4"! I think she will be looking for a taller bike soon, now that she knows how to get on one and ride. :ricky

    It's all what you make of it. Yea, the lighter bike might be the chit but bottom line is get familiar with your bike & ride the wheels off of it! :deal

    A large percentage of the people who get the latest and greatest off road or dual sport machine can't use up all of its potential because they are limited by their riding ability.

    In retrospect, I don't think I gave Buzztail adequate warning about that front Deathwing, and that's my bad. Those tires, which for me work adequately on gravel and great on asphalt, perform miserably in mud & sand. Like Mug said, there's plenty of room for finger-pointing at equipment in this case; I'm just glad no collarbones were damaged!

    Eloy's speaking the truth there when he says the bottom line is familiarity with your bike...as anyone who has seen Phaedrus hauling the mail on that beat-up old XT can attest...

    Ya notice he doesn't run Deathwings on that bike?

    I personally cannot wait for Phaedrus to be DRZ'd. It'll be :jinx

    It's all relevant

    Hey y'all
    I hadn't chimed in on what a great time I had meetin up with you FF's last weekend. A genuine good time. Some old faces, some new faces...all of A OK in my book. Thank you Alan for all the oysters I consumed. I have a newfound love for another food, and this is always a good thing. I'm getting some this weekend from the fishermen dock down the road from me. Alan, you're a mothershucker.

    Had a blast runnin with ya flux and dawgs. Fearless bastards. If only we would've known Dr Z hadda full on towing service.

    And for all you F's that were cold, there was a place round the fire. It was toasty warm. No sleeping bag required.:evil


    Thanks for putting it together Scott.

    Looking forward to the next gathering. Here's a vid of some antics. Camerawork is shitty as usual, but you get the idea. Starts out kinda funny.
