There is not much new to report except that I am only two items shy of having a full 'kit' for riding next month. Although I have nearly everything I need, I still have quite a bit of work to do. I need to replace both of my normal inner-tubes with heavy duty ones, mount my new steering stabilizer and new headlight. I tried installing the new TrailTech X-2 but there were two places where it was rubbing so I'm opting to buy another model that looks like it has more room to avoid rubbing against something.
Posting pictures is actually quite easy - I was on the wrong tab before. Here is a picture of Ron Vega and I on a ride near Baldy Mesa, CA.
