    Not '16. I think the redesign was in '17. Could be wrong though.

    I have well over 4000 miles on my '14 300 in 3 years. I view the starter as just another maintenance item so I have no complaints.

    Great ride today. Trees down everywhere. Couldn't access the first trail after the NETRA lot trail. Power lines were across the road so we had to go on pavement to the next part. Southern loop was muddy. Beginning of Baby Head was silly how muddy it was. Cold start but as soon as the sun came out it was mint. Here is a lame video of a fall.

    Good ride. I'm not motivated enough to see what videos I got tonight. I know there's a couple of Mike playing in the mud.

    Having only been up Mt. Misery twice - both time on my 690, I have to say you made it look a lot easier than I did (the 690 is basically a point-it-and-hang-the-fuck-on type of bike for stuff like this...)

    I don’t think I would want to do on something that heavy although heavy bikes soak up hits better IMO but are impossible to pick up. Maybe I will find out soon I’m thinking of finding something that doesn’t need oil changes every couple rides

    I still have my studs on Christini so anything is possible.that would be pretty tough to plow through. By the weekend it may be perfect if we have a cold night before.
