I'm sure you could go if you want to, my buddy eventually wants his place to become a stop for motorcyclists passing through. That, and surfers on vacation. It's in front of a nice break in playa San pedrito.

My leg & foot are healing slowly, so I'm aiming to be off road worthy by the next noobs rally. A few of us rode the big bikes up PCH to Carmel a few weeks ago. (Pavement only) except for about 200 miles of hard rain and a severely ingrown toenail, it was a great way to get back on two wheels.

Compared to a truck, I guess.
Looks like a nice commuter bike.

Well it is lighter than my R1150GS. I actually like those 990's but way to tall and top heavy for a short legged guy like me.

You learned to fall before learning how to ride. The rest will be easy!
