I am thinking about the Higher "R" suspension for next year's budget.

I am south east of Calgary downtown. South of highway 22X and east of Deerfoot looking back north, yes. The new developement is called Auburn hills. It won't be dirt for long, but it is nice to play in for now.
Good work. Funny you didn't run into Beema Killa - he was on the same road at the same time... see you out there this summer I'm sure. Look for two grinning fools on whiteys. Cheers.

I carry plastic bags. If my boots get wet I put my feet into the plastic bags.

It was in the Peak District near Derby, some good trails if a little rocky!

Thanks I would've been ok here, but I'll have to admit I had a "dab" on the way over and as a result got wet feet


On the way back though I "cleaned" it

The road was only suposed to have a few mud passages but as it turned out it had rained during the night so the entire 20 km were soacked. I turned around after about 5km.

check out more pics starting at the bottom of page 5
