    Exactly right Sir. A pair of goggles does unfortunately not fit without bending them to hell.

    Yeah, I found it a bit too small to be really useful. Probably would be better without the fleece to increase the space, since nothing I would carry there really needs the padding.

    Thanks, we lived there on an off for 36 years. He bought a place on a few acres south of Magnolia, where he can set up some trials obstacles and sections.

    Couple from yesterdays shenanigans:

    Thankfully this was a trail I was just cruising along on, and no hauling. Surprised to find the trail completely washed out, with a 8-10' deep chasm, and the culvert completely exposed. And the other is where my rear wheel dropped back onto the trail after dodging the puddle, and adding throttle too soon low sided the bike when it spun on the muck as it slid down.

    And a shoutout to @theantipaul (Paul at Highway Dirt Bikes) whose Ultimate handguards and flip out mirrors never moved an inch, except for the mirrors which easily flexed and rotated out of harms way. Awesome equipment! Perfect fit on the 790 ADV.

    And if you look at the rear end of the bike, it makes the perfect argument for installing flexible LED signals if your bike didn't come with them. They too flexed with the fall and snapped back into position perfectly.

    I had a similar drop on mine later on in my trip. I was coming out of a puddle about like the larger one in your picture, came out too high on the rut and lost the rear when it spun up in the mud. I'm still running the Karoo 3's though they are about cooked at this point.

    Our first 1200km together. Mostly Autobahn to get across the alps around Lago di Garda in Italy to catch the last nice days of this year.
    We slowly get to know each other. And with every kilometer I like her more. Next year I’ll be ready to start learning getting off road.

    After 2300 miles up into Quebec and back the bike is looking a bit more used.

    It seems our "Golden October" is already over :(:

    I'd like to drool on some autumn-ish photos, they'll have to do it all winter long :wink:
    (No I do not want you to tease us with your "but-its-still-summer" shots)

    Those are some sharp looking mods. I especially like how the rear sprocket matches the pegs. Do those hand guards allow you to go full lock without hitting anything?
