I'm trying to figure out how to put an RFS 525 into a XT225 frame with a 3 gallon gas tank or I need platform shoes

Some serious negotiations also happened during the ride.

The atmosphere was so tense you could taste the brat's cooking, the tensions were almost unbearable as I yearned for a hottub, and the taste of the ice cream sandwich earlier were all but a memory, but with the good nature of mankind, we persevered through.

The deliberation's- "Would you like a 950A? It's a mechanic's special!...--- OK, send me a PM"
We toasted to a deal like diplomat's.

Someone likes drinking the coolaid, brisk mountain rides, and picturesque scenery.

A bit of the test ride:





He has a bright future indeed, gonna need sunglasses.

Excellent! Was that basically one section or a compilation of various sections? Looked kinda like the Needles district?

A big heavy bike in that terrain would be tough for sure.

That video was basically from the top of Elephant Hill heading north out towards Beef Basin. There is a few rocky hog backs one has to maneuver with some deep sandy tracks in between. No doubt Ben could do it on his new 950. Me, not even a little bit. I'll be on my 450 next year. :)
Congrats on the new bike !

Nice Chris. I think you are being ultra kind by not posting more vids.

Lights

Dirtdad,
thanks for being my guiding light on that night ride portion. Good news is I got the no headlight problem fixed--one broken solder joint and one loose connector. Bad news, I've now got KTM's high power headlights
