    Riding Conditions Getting Good...........

    Aloha,

    I know in many parts of the country people are wanting to get out there and take advantage of the better weather/conditions. I just thought I'd start a thread that is "Passion" related and sort of creates hopeful of the new riding season. This pic was taken a couple of months ago while doing a check ride on my new bike (before I took it for 3+ weeks in New Zealand). Enjoy and post of your "riding" pictures hoping it's from the start of your 2014 riding AND of you riding.

    It's challenging. Like riding rocks and roots. You have to be careful of getting your front wheel stuck in "holes" and other big obstacles that will fully compress your front end and throw you over the bars. The price of falling is huge because the lava is very sharp and will cut you up bad.
