You are the only guy I know who uses a rope to put himself into the muck.

So the CRF450X WOULD have been the better choice: -)

When you're trading stuff out of a ravine, ever 50 lbs counts. Not to mention good knobs and handling might keep you out of the ditch: -)

We all know the BRP can be a hand full, but in this case it was the "little" DRZ with the new knobs that took the flying leap. That said, I was happy that all the 650s stayed on the road, extracting the DRZ was hard enough, the 650s would have been more so.

I was wondering the same thing as Peter. Should have known you'd have something like that stashed in your tool bag. Better to have it and not need it, then need it and not have it...

Looks like you guys had fun!

I used to carry 100' of rope and two blue climbing pulleys on my BMW.

Now, I let the BMW riders carry their own.

Might see you all on Wed.

Last night's run home was a little dicey. 7pm and the sign on the bank in Harrisburg said "32deg"....with wet roads and a light wind
It's dark when I leave for work, and dark when I leave the office for home, so I'm caging it....on orders of the wife....until it warms up a little. Ole Man Winter can get bent! I've got a Madstad Engineering windscreen and a Leo Vince X3 exhaust inbound and I ain't gonna want to install 'em just so I can look out the kitchen window at the Klr sitting there.
