Usually it'll hold on until I'm at the counter at the DMV saying "Yes, I know I have a lot of shit. Now can I please just have another motorcycle tag?"

They're motorized kidney stones. Drink plenty of fluids and they typically pass. I get them frequently with cars, trucks, etc...

There is a go around

It looks worse than it is, although more rain might make jumping the ravine the only way across

I thought about it but it has been a while since my last Rendezvous, http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=820686 and in true ADV spirit it starts on a Wednesday .

Sunday should be putting me on a course west over to Laguna Hell where I will corrupt the Grandkids for a bit.

For some reason I believe this ride is going to be an rare adventure.

Chit, it's been about 2-3 years since I've attended an RDV. It was either the RDV or the SLAP. I've never ridden in Ar-kansas so I reckon I'll have to check it out. Besides, Scribe says that Dr. Lewall has quite the goat harem.

All of that and a harem of goats, how can one pass up such an opportunity?

Klx/drz

I have enjoyed mine(just for off road though)

A 250 would be easier in ANF tight trails but,

The KLX is a steady eddie.......

The DRZ was fun in town, but not as much as the 690 is... Picture a DRZ with two engines and good suspension

The KTM will yank the wheel in 3rd like the Suzuki will in 2nd (professional rider, closed course, non-DDS ride, IANAL)
