    I was going to take Freebird out on some trails today, and I actually waited for him to call! 11:30 the call comes, he's out, still hasn't fixed the oil leak on his DR.

    So, I head out by myself. Couldn't have asked for a better day, actually, I guess it was a little hot, temps in the 70's.

    There were some places with leaves still on the trees

    On the fire tower trail. This is a great piece of trail, ATV width, mostly flat, easy enough for a big dually.

    You can actually ride through here. I pussied out and rode around.

    I'm sure glad I slowed down for this. Now you know how to justify good barkbusters for trail riding.

    Nice report. I love the missing bark next to your bark busters. What mount are you using for your GPS??? Inquiring minds would like to know.

    I'm using the old style Touratech. It is very effective at keeping the GPS on the bike, but vibration is a problem. The GPS gets zonked if the revs go above 6k RPM. I think the new style and more expensive version would do a much better job with the engine vibs.
