I cleared out space to get to and work on the bike yesterday, so I might actually have some maintenance done by Saturday. ;)

Looks like just the three of us so far...

I'd be game for fueling ourselves at Angie's before the ride.

I'm game but I gotta work late on Saturday nite so not sure when I'd have the time to get the trailer out of the garage and also load the beast.
Believe me, it's a process.
Maybe I'll just throw one of the 2 wheelers on the back of the Jeep and follow ya's around/help push & pull. I'll check back in on Saturday to see if you are going to meet at Angie's.
Sunday looks like a nice day of Sun & weather.

Just to clarify because it's confusing when the date only comes up once every four years; We're riding on Saturday :)

Crap, your right. My work calendar only seems to go up to Sat, 2/29 for some reason?

I'm out. Have Fun, Ride Safe.

I’ll meet you guys over at the ranger station, and possibly for breakfast, but I have to meet someone in the area at noon for scoping out campgrounds

I put a fresh wrap of packing tape around turn signal, put the 1/2" breaker bar on the handlebar riser nuts and lower strut mounts, which reduced the "grunk" noises by 40%, checked oil (some), checked gas (enough), packed fresh drill winch battery. See you at 9am.

Crossed/jumped/slid/leapt a lot of logs and downed trees on this 90km ride, more than I have the last few years in total.
Skid plate and raised exhaust was almost mandatory.
I'm definitely convinced a stout skidplate is a must, not so much for underside protection, but sliding over obstacles.
No real stucks or breakage.
We were bopping along pretty fast on a few sections of woops and I almost pulled a Chad. :oops:
We caught air more than a few times.
ReCycled had Jaybird riding as monkey and he was still on my tail the whole way.
Really good ride!

Yep, that was a good ride. Lots of saddle time, a couple of appropriately challenging trails and a little leaping.

Yes, that was a fun day, and the first time I spent any significant time in a sidecar, 5 plus hours I think. Fortunately it was a day of off roading and with one of the best motorcycle drivers I know. :D :D :D :cheers:

Happy trails,
