    Actually I had all the parts avail. but was too busy at work to get the pumpkin ready for flight, so it was ol' red to the rescue. Plus the 450 had a trials tire, which is mandatory for me to try and keep up with NS.:D

    It was great meeting and riding with you ATR guys! And no need to apologize for the route. Except for the one step it was all easy.it dropped into Trail 2, like you said. We just took our time and it worked out fine. Plus you and NS got to do an extra loop at top speed on the search and rescue!

    Join us on the next Wildcat or Sycamore ride.

    Brad,

    The lens on my 60CXs is cracked too. I think it is actually a protective cover and there is another lens under that one. I was thinking about sending it off to Garmin or seeing if they sold a replacement part. Knowing Garmin it is probably a $75 part (for a $.40 item). To be perfectly honest, I am pretty disgusted with how shitty Garmin products (in particular the 60 series) holds up. I think they use a lot of regrind plastics because the cases seem really brittle. Maybe I am being a little harsh knowing the abuse they see off-roading, but I have had three of them and they all have broken in one place or another.

    Yeah, and slap some rear-set pegs on her and you'll have a cafe style off roader. It's all good!
