Mike! I remember you!
The crazy thing is I read your ride report of your day trip a few weeks ago, but for some reason I never bothered to look at the screen name and glossed right over your photo. Crazy that we crossed path on this board!
If you ever make your way out to near SoCal, hit me up. I can pay you back for that co-drive in your MR2 with a co-drive on one of my bikes, haha.
I'm fully out of autox, the dual sport, especially out here, it's just too much damn fun. Much more bang for the buck in seat time too...I'll take 10 hours in the saddle versus 4 minutes in the car any day.
