j4s--Looks like you need to turn your steering stablizer up


And what's up with the end audio "How many times did the gravel pit eat you?"

Enlarged kick stand foot

A couple of people (Garrett/Matt?) ask about putting a larger foot on their kickstand so I picked up some large washers at Tractor Supply tonight that we can customize and weld on. Let me know when you are ready.

Is there any dirt/off road location that is open to the public that is worth while? (within 30 miles? Or so...)

I asked Bill and he said a Stabilizer is nice to have but not necessary.

The reference to TTRU moments was last years multiple incidents in the gravel and sand. The only time I required TTRU help rather than rendering it was on day three. We stopped to look at the old bridge to Ashville and I parked the GSA downhill and it decided to roll forward off the side stand after I dismounted.
