I might have even caught a little air here and there.
There were kids out there with 80's and 125's. Thats who these trails were made for. I stayed out of their way. I know I could take every one of them in the wide open.
This bike is comfortable riding for hours on end. Also I rode street from one area to the next. What freedom! I dont know all the trails yet but I wasnt limited at all. My front tire was caking up and washing out pretty bad in the sand pits. I'll have to look into replacing that. All in all a fun day. No fancy long distance ride to tell about, just hours in the saddle, playing around and getting muddy in the woods on a great bike.
Rained all day here Nut, so I spent all day cleaning and servicing mine. I switched over to full sythetic oil this time Ill let you if it make the shifting smoother.
