I spent 3 hours out on Milican Platau east of Bend starting from the Alfalfa Staging Area. I rode south along some rocky trails then open up more on the power line road till I ran out of open OHV area. I headed east up the hills on some winding turns and loved it. Climbed up a sandy hill took some pics, back down to stop out in the meadow on the flats, keeping her running so I wouldn't have to kick her over again. Then north to the hwy and across into the northern areas. The trail towards Prineville Reservior was like a winding MX track with tight turns and puddles and mud. 2nd gear mostly. The BRP doesn't like the tight stuff. Want's to run out on the flats... I hurt now from being so out of shape. Legs and butt hurt the most. I'll be gettin a padded seat cover. Changed out the big tank as well for the stock tank till I really need it. Like the red... Overall I'm very happy with this beast. And suprised at the fact that I've still got some skills...

Here's the pics link:

Awesome man! Nice bike, and welcome to the forum! I'm very out of riding shape too. Ha ha. I went for a 50 mile ride last weekend (street/fire road), and my ass was starting to really feel it! Gel seat will be on order soon cheers

+1 (content unavaible at this time) Sounds like a good time, Capt P.

Of course you realize that WetFest is taking place in Bend this year. (Search ADVrider if you don't.)

Cheers
