Just drop it at McCarthy's for breakfast. That way you can use the SXV again. Need more (and better) pictures of that bike.

You work with my wife and you have quite a partner in Barley. We passed you in our cage to today trailing our bicycles.. You gave us a wave.

New Tag, keeping it local for the Stowe crew. Its the highest paved point in Stowe and the natural habitat of the SXV550


Here is a couple more pics for the peeps wanting to see more of the SXV

Sweet bike. I'd really like to have the dirty RXV version, but that thing must be a blast on that particular road. Just so long as there aren't any tourii clogging things up.

If BC is your wife you're a lucky man! She's a dream to work with.

I have a couple KTMs (950adv 450EXC)covering my dirt addiction and I figured the SXV would be my Notch ripper. Its absolutely insane! No relaxing, you really need to hang on to it and pinch it with your knees! Todays ride started in Mo-ville over 108 notch, pleasent valley in Burlington for a half day of work, home through the App Gap.

While we are waiting for someone to claim this tag, how was 17 on the west side of the gap? Last summer there were some healthy humps on that side. Can't imagine they are much better this spring...

Didn't see the tag till after I got home, but you can see the structure at the top of Smugglers' Notch in this shot.

Does that count?

I would consider that good, but you will have to wait for the jury on this one. Anyway, that is the coolest picture I have ever seen! Your dog must have been loving that ride up the notch! That last statement "how dogs hang on every word as if it is the most profound thing they have ever heard" is so totally true! Enjoy the ride.

First Tag ever claimed while moving? If I had placed the tag it would be good enough for me.
