Great photos as per usual Sir!!
Oh and YOU SUCK!!!!! ..... I love it out there in the Rockies. It's nice here, but AWESOME out there.
Wish i had a mess of lives to live!!!

I just got a spot for riding far afield, solo or not. Just do it OREX!!!! Your wife will thank you! JaxWife really digs it. She watches my progress and isn't waiting/dreading for the phone to ring. And what JaxWife digs, I dig. Almost all the riding I do is solo, in places where there is no cell service, I really like the insurance policy!
One cautionary tale from JDRocks, Turn your spot off BEFORE you stop at the tittie bar.

So what is the outcome of your rear wheel?

TIA

Nice!! Explains why I couldn't find anything even remotely like it on the Aprilia website.

That 3M 5200 pulled out of my rim dish in two chunks! I have a big long strip of solid 5200 that didn't stick to my rim AT ALL! Back to a tube for now. I'll be using what I should have used in the first place. Pro Seal PRC1422B1/2. That shit sticks.

BTW, big thanks for taking on that group buy for the Uni. Just let me know when you are ready and I'll Paypal you the second I read your message! Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hell of a weekend! I did 873 miles, Tyson had about the same I think. I've got about 40 minutes of GoPro footage to edit.

Oh yeah and Ezra B, hammock camping, naked creek bath, chainsawing by headlamp, extraordianary kindness from locals, "The Hilton" and Mitch. Yeah it's going to be a good report.
