No need to disable Java or install an outdated browser to trick Yahoo.

Newer ain't necessarially better.

If you had your mail set as your home page you will have to reset the web address in Internet Options but once you do it works as it should.
Wish there was a way to undo the cluster that is the switch from Hotmail to outlook.

Indy, quit stirring the pot
The big tree with the hill climb around it has been cut out. There is about a 12" diameter log there still, sitting at just the right angle to make it a interesting obstacle.

In the wet, it would all depend on the tire selection. The best rider in the world isn't going to be able to climb a muddy hill with the wrong tires.

Hotmail and photobucket just pulled the new and improved shit too. The new Hotmail isn't bad,much less changed, photobucket sucks a fat one now.

I've never been to Stone Quarry. I wonder if it would be SV-able without the log crossing. Thoughts?

Depends on your skill level and willingness to drop your bike. It's really not that bad dry like this, the toughest obstacle at this point are just the washed out ruts, they cross back and forth, and if you drop into one, you are committed to stay in it on a big bike.

I made it down Stone Quarry that day with my DL1000 without dropping it, but just to be polite and not make others feel bad I dropped it in a little tiny rut at the end of the Glenmont Trial like I was some complete noob.

There's a ledge that's too big to go over slow (or you'll bottom the engine/skid plate on it), so you have to hit it with enough speed to loft the front wheel. On a dirt bike, no biggie - on a 550lb Strom? Fuuuuuuck. Scared the living shit out of me, but I got down it. I never did it twice, I'll tell ya that. I had Deb jump off the back and walk it cause I was pretty sure I'd eat shit on the way down.

Dry Branch aint no picnic either

If you're going to do it on an SV don't be a pussy and opt of the log crossing.

Lady Run is the one we went up (you fell a couple times) and Dry Branch we looked at but went down along the creek instead

I'd probably try it now with the way I have the WRR setup.

I actually smashed the header of the DL (same setup as the SV) about 1/2 closed, by bottoming it on a rock on Cinnamon Pass. Seems to work just as well as it did before though.

The lower ground clearance of the SV might render that header totally smashed shut, if you hit a rock the right way.

Meef: Not sure if you belong to LocalRidersdotcom, but one of the inmates there was offering up some OEM DL/Wee exhaust parts a few weeks back....free, maybe, or at least cheap? Send a PM to Dave Bannister and check if he's still got 'em.
