    I'm riding all day Thursday, but not to Illinois. I'm heading south for a porkoff!:D

    Goat is pussing out on it. I offered to babysit, but I haven't heard anything from him, yet.

    I have for short distances. We rode to TN last month and did some gravel roads. Hmmmm... It might be fun to put a set of meats on it and see what happens. The suspension on that thing sucks but maybe some stiffer springs and more fluid in the forks.? It would also need some protection for the header pipe and engine. Do you know anyone who rides an sv on gravel?

    now you got me thinking...
