Seriously though, I hope you aren't banged up like the bike. Good thing you already have to head back to Austin next week though.
Did not figure I should be wandering around in traffic trying to take pics of the oil...if you notice bottom left frame is start of puddle. I drove my department van past there a bit ago and they now have sand over it now. I feel like somebody poured lead on the left side of my body.

Uhhh....Your bike is far too capable. We are going to have to saddle you with a weight penalty. I am going to suggest Roseanne Barr.

Well, guys . Our trio of CenTex Adv'ers are traversing the Carson National Forest today on the Continental Divide Trail. I really hope they packed a lunch. That don't look like no road to me. lol At least they have tents.

Just checked out your guys' RTB page. I think I'm totally jealous. What are these Ghost Rancho campfires you speak of? I haven't been able to ride any real dirt at all over here in Germany. They kind of frown on that with possible jail time and some hefty fines.
