Mike, judging by that last photo it looks like you were able to ride the entire loop. Am I correct? If so what did you do on the uphill section that you got stuck on when it was iced? Were you able to make it up, or did you make that bypass you, John and I talked about?

He really needs to invest in some bark busters

Sweet. That looked to be a real fun section. Glad no bypass was needed. I tried to ride yesterday but had no juice in the battery. Pass it along to John that he is welcome to use my Maiers until I need them. Up to him. They should fit as long as he is still running stock bars. If not Iam sure I have the inserts somewhere to make them fit.

Looks good. First time I have seen the motard front fender on a KLR.

Looks great! Ready to sneak out early some morning (3am) and head over to Harpers Ferry and grab the "Eastern Panhandle Tag-O-Rama"?

Wish my back tire had as much tread as yours. My tread is as thick as the period at the end of this sentence. Dang, when did bike tires get to be $$$ooo expensive? I shopped around and it's still going to cost $30-$40 more than my last tire.

Next time you're down around New River, feel free to grab photos of a few Historical Markers and send them my way. Thanks!
