Correct, there's usually a herd of cows/bulls there. The grass looked long and the crops looked unharvested.

That is Rummels section (property). Yes, if you bushwack in there, you have a very good chance of screwing up because I'm sure the trails are very close together.

Well, I lost my skid plate up on the northern loop on Saturday. I re-rode the southern part so I don't think it's there. If anyone sees it, please let me know - or if anyone has one in the garage they want to turn into some $$, also let me know.

It's the black plastic one for a 2008-2010 450xc-w/exc p/n 78003190000



Thanks

I have an extra one. It's brand new never mounted. It's for my 2011 250xcfw but I'd bet it will fit your 450.
