    First wash!

    IMG_1161.jpg

    Found tears in the Softopper, Reached out to their team and had a patch kit sent out at no extra cost

    IMG_1176.jpg
    IMG_1177.jpg

    What the heck is that?!

    IMG_1916.jpg

    Ahh, much better

    IMG_1917.jpg

    Had a tear in the steering wheel so Ebay leather steering wheel wrap in progress

    IMG_1918.jpg

    These trucks make hauling bikes a joke!

    IMG_1622.jpg

    Went up to Poly Canyon in San Luis Obispo and had a little fun

    IMG_1652.jpg

    IMG_1664.jpg
    IMG_1665.jpg

    Went to service the rear shocks and found out that one didnt have any oil!

    IMG_1685.jpg

    Went offroading after rebuilding them then heard a huge POP. Found out that the 2.0 shocks are VERY volume dependent. having just a bit more oil then needed leads to the shock exploding.

    Now that wont be fixed easily....

    Due to the catastrophe with the icon 2.0's, went to the next logical step.

    Nice I like!

    You happen to have a trail file for that Big Bear route? KML or GPX or something? I want to hit some snow this season once I finish some armor upgrades next week.

    Unfortunately do not have a trail route but if you type 3N16 on google maps, it will take you to the trailhead.

    Had some free time and was tired of getting my fenders all scratched up so Plastidip became the weekend activity of choice.
