Well where else would you want him with his dust contrail?
Besides, he can pickup parts and pieces that fall off the other bikes and I think he has a winch in the side car if one needs to be pulled out of the mud
I've ridden with him when he was on the Ural--trust me I would need a KTM 200 to go where he takes the Ural

It's cheating unless there's a passenger in the sidecar.

The wife always said I would have been a great monkey. Of course she was talking about the tree climbing, poo-throwing kind.

I am out?

Just cut my left hand index finger. Bonehead move.

I think I am out and can't lead w/o clutch action.

Hurts like hell!

Can anyone else step up to lead it?

At this point I know *most* of the loop but there are a couple areas that are still kinda confusing Plus I'm a slow "C--" rider and would bore everyone to tears if I led .

That said, I think I have the tracks loaded in my GPS (?). I will give it my best shot if nobody else steps up.
