    Very possible. My three year old and his sticky hands have been playing with my phone all day everyday lately.

    Found some double track, got a bit more practice in loose sand and deep gravel.

    And saw some critters

    Parts on the way... Handle grips, better wider foot pegs, additional LED brake light, Givi engine guard.

    I think I've decided on soft panniers, just want more storage for drinks and food for trips like this. Eventually tires with a bit more sand/gravel manners would be nice.

    Haha yeah there were about 10 of them in this particular lake. I'm guessing it's because it's been so dry for so long that they don't have a choice. There was not much water anywhere to be found, and it's a slough, should be nothing but water.

    Got it out, but going to have to apply a bit of heat to break that bolt out.

    Such a goofy design.

    I just looked at this again and I really like it. Truly. Some photographers have to work really hard to try to get a visual effect like this.

    I was trying to think of how to express how it struck me each time I've looked at it and why it appealed. It's a dream of a bike and that pic makes it look like it's in a dream.
