Don't feel bad I did that exact same thing myself slid off got it turned 90 degrees across the trail and it was pretty much just high centered between two ruts. Took me forever to get out of that one.

Well I passed the permit test and only missing 2 questions. Put about 10 miles on it today getting used to riding again. Still not liking the seat and have to buy a new helmet tomorrow. Mine is getting old and the foam fell apart getting into my eyes. If I can't find what I want here I may ride up to revsport later this week since it looks like they have a good selection of stuff like that.
Life is good.

Ok. I really need to make one of these rides. Looks like you hit a bunch of great spots.

A few years ago I climbed that powerline hill too ...for the first time in about 20 years.

Great pics OBM!! That's the old drag line! Was it running? I went looking for it last year but it had been moved. A couple guys here have been inside it.

Would love to get out with you guys!

Well the time has come for me to leave Bloomington, IN. I start my new job in Rochester, IN next week. Anyone have any good ride recommendations in the flat corn lands?

Thank you for the pics OBM! You guys get me staring at G maps SAT photos for at least an hour every time you post ride pics. Can't wait to hit these spots...in my spare time.

Don't like the DRZ seat after only 10 miles? You bought a dirt bike. Don't be a pansy, muscleman. Perhaps a Harley Ultra Classic or Honda Goldwing would be more your style. :)

I had a Suzuki gel seat for a while. I HATED it. I found the stock seat to be way more comfortable. Still, after about 2 hours, I'm standing up and squirming all over it. TooSlo just got a seat concepts for his KTM and it feels really nice.

seat on my 300 is a seat concept seat. i just did two 100 mile dual sport rides with each being 80% singletrack. i never thought about my ass being sore on either ride.

i guess that bodes well for the seat...
