    After watching the video it's just as well that Rich and I didn't try riding with you on our tiny bikes. I don't think they would have handled the off roads parts very well. It looks like we rode many of the same roads.

    Here's a few pics from the gas station.

    When I first saw the ADV150 I thought it had been crashed but it was just muddy!

    I loved the Trail 70 clone since that was my dream bike when I was young.

    The free dinner and SkyMed presentation were both great and gave me something to think about.

    The trail 125s that stopped by:

    Thanks for posting some pics guys! Taking video all the time I forget to take the camera off and just get some snaps. I'll bet those CT125 footpegs will fit right on a Monkey (although the replacement cover solution is pretty good).

    BTW Kyle, remember you told us about the Jeep groups that drive around without ever getting any dirt on them? We saw one of those groups on Saturday. They pulled into the Cherohala Visitor Center parking lot and like you said, they were spotless.

    No kidding, EVERY time I have ever ridden by a Jeep group, it's been on a paved road, not once out in the forest. I do think I saw a few dusty Jeeps on Saturday. :augie

    I do not have a Monkey but did get to hang out with a Monkey owner at Hunt's which, in turn, made me want to buy a Monkey. It is a vicious cycle.
