    Nice. That particular version of KLX is on my short list (it's actually quite long truthfully) of bikes I'd like to acquire.

    I know, I moved 700 miles south and it still snows. I gave away all my studded knobbies.

    Got to run up Squally with @justBert yesterday, I imagine I was the worst at it of all of us who have gone lately, but I’m going to try again really soon. I had a great time. Looking forward to getting better at it. Bert is a great rider, what a pleasure. Ran into Hipower90 there, what a great rider he obviously is as well. I wasn’t really worthy to hang around.

    Rode around Haywood and Madison counties today with minimal interference, it was fabulous.

    I keep saying it, these folks are putting out some good food. Had a smoked gyro today, playful twist that worked well in an interestingly tasty way.

    This brings back memories of being a kid playing war in the woods, that rock formation would’ve kicked ass.

    Wow! What a great weekend of riding. Thu and Fri with the NOTTA crowd in Bryson City and Sat and Sun with the Dixie Land DS guys at Tellico. I really enjoyed the Sat loop and don't be so hard on yourself, we did much better than my first time through. Added bonus was running into @Hipower90.

    Not sure if all of us, but I know some of us (including me) are in a group of "constant improvement." I'm to the point on Hurricane either with the 500 or the 990 that I want to try alternative lines so that I can help others who seem to get in the wrong spots... but on Squally, that's MY stretch goal right now... to clean that as easily as Hurricane. Then consider some of those other lines I was looking at and clean them too.
