    I have 4 down there, the 525 was off to another side waiting for its motor to come back.

    @gunnerbuck , @skibum69 thanks for the great pics! You'd be forgiven for thinking they were pictures of my adopted home, New Zealand :lol3 Just the other day my partner suggested a trip to Canada (she's worked there previously). Definitely gotta make it happen. Especially BC for the mountain biking.

    View from the nearest hill to my house (pretty much the view from my house):

    Same view from a bit further away, and a bit more fun to get to :)

    These next three are within 2 hours south of home, can be done as long-ish day loop but more typically as an overnighter:

    Seems to overcast and/or wet a lot of the time I'm out on the 640!! Or worse, an off-road club trail ride in the snow:

    This is what it was like on the main loop:

    These next couple are a bit further away:

    Beautiful country @bikemoto! NZ is a place I've always wanted to go too but have yet to get there. And don't be fooled, we have a ton of great Mtn biking here too. Sure their mounters are bigger and they have heli skiing but we too have good skiing as you saw in the earlier pics.

    I don't have any other photos with me right now but I can tell you it is from Australia from a company called Rock Hard Rally Gear and it was not cheap. (over $800 delivered to the United States many years ago)

    Has a good amount of storage on both sides and is built better than the rest of the bike.

    As I recall my skid plate with rally boxes was an SW Motech unit I bought from Twisted Throttle. It's been a lot of years so no idea if they're still available. I generally keep my tool roll on one side and my 12v pump on the other but water does get in there so I'll probably put something else in there like a tube or air filters or whatever. A well built piece and very handy. Plus it looks cool.:lol3

    Not all the guys on this ride were on a 640A of course. But it sure is happy out here.

    From your link: "
    Two years ago, while racing somewhere in Mauritania, Rauseo became stranded. He sat there for almost three days, waiting.
    "My battery died," Rauseo said, recalling the ordeal. "I had been giving people jumps, and they basically left me. I was dead out there. I sat on a rock for two and a half days."

    I never noticed before the 660R dispenses with the kicker.
