Well the tires were good today.

The back sides of those passes were just kicking our butts, esp41 was just being nice. At one point I had my rear locked up, the front locked up and was still sliding down. Between the baby powder dirt and the baby head rocks it was a real thrashing. It's hard to believe just how hard it would be to ride a big GS down the back sides of some of those passes. More than once I was wishing for my WR...

Not that the holiday traffic helped us any.
