Took a little ride out towards a place called Jackson Cabin yesterday. Unfortunately, we had to turn around before we got to the cabin as my buddy's KLR decided it wanted to shear a bolt holding his subframe to the main frame. Anyway, it was perfect weather in SE Arizona for riding.

A pair of vice grips would fix the KLR...

I put a few miles in last weekend behind the Huachuca's. Great day for a ride.

Napping on the job at 6500 ft. Guess even my G650X gets tired. Zero mph drop wouldn't have happened if my legs were 3 inches longer....lol.

The road heading back up into the mountain used to go through Fort Huachuca into Sierra Vista. The road is now blocked though.

Heading down the valley towards the West.

Down to a more manageable 5500 ft.

You mention that you dropped down to a more manageable 5500 feet from 6500 feet. How’s that? Did your legs get longer as you went down in altitude? rofl

Doug, kind of....lower altitude = closer to the earth's core....so, more gravity pulling on my legs to make them longer. rofl

It was less laboring to breathe at lower 5500ft.

what he meant to say is the higher I went, the larger my tires became balancing ambient external pressure, and therefore my legs got shorter. When I came back down the ambient pressure shrunk my tires, and therefore my legs got longer.
