Only one nap but I wouldn't have gotten the bike out by myself. I'm sure pictures are coming!

Thank you everyone for waiting for me and helping me get the bike out of the mud. You guys rock!

That was my first time in CC. Real nice place. Especially with that gang.

Note to myself: put the knobbies on next time...(some people don't need them I'm sure but I certainly could have used them)

Cheers!!!

It looks more like back ache and heat stroke to me. No thanks, I choose life.

I'd love to see the brace. Todd mentioned it. I'm in San Jose. So whenever is convenient for you.

I'll send you an email. Thanks again.

Thanks Paul!
That's one of the first mods I did to the bike. I nearly went straight in a ditch on my first outing on dirt. I came home and modded the ABS so that it never happens again.

I like the abs system but I really like that it can be permanently turned off.

Scorpions suck on dirt. I felt like i was on marbles the whole time. Had also put too much air pressure because I didn't want to take a chance to get pinched. AND, most importantly, these guys are not beginners.
Should have put knobbies on...next time!

ok you saw it then...

Mike Z got that from me after I put a hole in my first tank and I went looking for answers to not have this happen again.

The same guy did the work my friend Mike A.
