    Yeahbut we made it through, and that's all that matters.... I did get all of the blood out of my seatcover yesterday too:lol3 I washed that sheepskin with the hose for a half an hour and was still getting dirt out of it. We'll see what it looks like when it dries

    I won't do another long ride on the bike with the stock seat :nah

    :clap Congrats on an epic ride guys!! I recognize some of those bridges from our ride back in June...

    Any chance you'll share the tracks from your GPS?? I'd like to compare our routes to see where things can be improved.

    It was an awesome trip no doubt. :clap

    As soon as I upload the tracks to the map software, I'll e-mail you the finished track. :deal

    These are from the ATV loop. This is Kelly on his 950, the biggest bike in the pack.

    This section was probably the most brutal terrain on the entire loop. Jaydee, on the KLR, having a small issue with gravity.

    Kelly arriving at the top, after ripping off the left side pannier on a tree.

    But he had the means to re-attach it, and got back underway without assistance.

    The powerline trails were a lot of fun. Here is Wishinforwoods on one of the hills. His KLX 300R was the smallest bike in the group.
    [​IMG]
    This hill looked twice as high in person. I was saying that it was crazy to try this on loaded down bikes, but after climbing it I realized that it was quite easy.

    Here the scene looking back down from the top.

    The next hill was even bigger, so I went up it first to shoot some video. I will post those up later. I think only Dr.Z, WFW, and myself went up that hill. I think someone down there didn't want to try that, so they all left me up there and took an alternate route. :lol3

    Here is a shot of the incredible eats at Villa De Tuna.

    With a name like Buzztail you might fit that plank suzuki put on for a seat better than I do. My arse is too wide or my belly adds too much weight but I can't stand more than a few hours at a time.

    It really don't help that my street ride has a road sofa for a seat. :D
