    Thanks for getting me all charged up! When you have a Fattie, you have what is arguably the most versatile bike made. That totally reminds me why I got mine! Exploring. I've since found out how I can ride it on all kinds of different terrain by simply changing tires and/or air pressures. Love my Fattie! Love the pics! Thanks for sharing.

    Wow I actually felt jealous looking at those pics! I have to say they are amazing! I was wondering what type of boats are you using?

    pretty sad to see a post like this drift off the page from lack of support while many get sucked into a "building the sport" clusterF that was completely ignored on another sub forum

    Another awesome trip Bjorn and friends. Thanks for answering the question Ive been asking for a few years: Yes, you can ride Rocky River Road all the way over to the Gulf side.

    Look forward to the next one!
