    hi Chain, haven't been around but I'd like to make it down if that's cool. the fall ride was the best time. I still have the 05 dakar, running fine. I recall dumping the bike 3-4 times in that atv rut trail in that thick thick brush that lead to the restaurant on the river.... I even dumped the bike again on the way home sunday morning on a gravel road that I didn't take on the way in, Round Barn road i think, ... I need to run lower pressures this year... yes, that's all it was... :D

    All this talk is bringing back good memories :1drink


    round barns and Hellhounds,
    late arrivals and falldowns
    gravel roads and beer runs
    motofriends and long guns
    frozen seats and muddy feat
    waking at the farm
    to dirtbike alarm
    wiskey drinkin and tent stinkin
    campfires and damn good liars
    riding trails and windy gravel roads
    Smoking fat cigar and listening to the toads



    Im ready :deal

    heh the only time I started to get embarrassed about the spills was on the way out, I hoped no one was behind me, watching me drift hopelessly right into the rut on the side of the road.... i had a time getting it out... with all that gear...:rofl
