I like variety

We have dual sport bikes, wr400, ttr250, dr650, and I also have a bmw gs1150.
I'm looking for trail, street/dirt, and adv loops. Street is easier to find and plan but I'd like more info on trails...

In shop doing that next. :)
Stay tuned. Another idea from the previous owner is to move the relay outside the box into more wind. Try to keep it cooler. Maybe get a bigger hella relay. Relocate it.
