Ok, this is another quarter mile up the road:



Took the first picture after stopping to walk the rut to make sure it was somewhat firm. Took this second picture because I came across this:


The sign doesn't look to be official, and the road goes through on my gps, but I was alone, 3 miles from pavement, on a 600 pound bike on a muddy road. I wasn't going to press my luck with the shot up road sign and half a dozen no trespassing signs.

Quite common on the Raven bikes. So far Yamaha is in as much denial as the owners.

Smart man, those are what are called "clues".

I just couldn't stand the boredom of the Yamaha any longer.

Sorry guys. It's been a good run.

Nope... I ain't buying it. Does *look* like a new sled, but the Pluric I know would only get the very latest and greatest from any manufacturer, and that's not Big Orange's most up-to-date parts-dropper...

And here it is December and not even April yet!

But just in case it is true, how come you don't have the most important KTM farkle?






It's the screen set-up that bolts underneath a KTM to catch the parts that shake loose, fall off, etc., and the one pictured even has the trick oil separator... Does cut down on ground clearance, though.

After that it's a mailbox like The Westmeister...

That was before this beast was alive!!!

I still don't care what anybody says...

I think Pluric is trying to pull our driveshafts!

Not that he's joined the Ravens or anything...
