I think I may take them off and revert to enduro mode until I mount the smaller rear signals. I really should go ahead and look into some different tires..

yes ,,i understand these are -Hunting Areas- open only for/durning hunting season..
one side is georges state park and backing up to it.. is the (muster grounds) duke power land that conects =if gates are open...

truck with 4x4 ,4 wheeler no problem = going slow to camp site or to hunting area..

They Don't Want Folks Haulins Ass Thro There ..

its a two way gravel road that is fun at a nice pace..
also sign staying "4x4 only" passed/into some areas ..
no cars suspose to drive thro either...

A bunch of us rode the Gorges side a while back. If you want to get an idea for what to expect I wrote a blog about that trip. There is a bunch of pics and a video. I also have a map in there.
