we did ride after taking a summer break because of heat and guess what it was 95 today... Texas...
we did some trail work at what we call little creek . it's a small creek and a copse of woods that is only 75 x 200 ft at most , but it allows for good practice . we have criss cross trails so you can do different things .... we attempted riding chuck a rock , but at 7 to 8 acres of heavy woods and no breeze (every trail had spiders webs crossing every few feet it seemed ) we decided to stay at little creek for some good practice . we cooked hotdogs , had some cold water , great time just hanging out .... Beta feeling good , I'm a little sore so a good work out .... never seen any altitude of any kinda with my Beta ....... Eemsreno can fly.

Did manage to get some altitude
Just back from a week of real altitude in Cloudcroft, NM at 9,000-10,000 ft. The new FI bike was flawless, the old carb'd bike lost a little punch at elevation but still very rideable. Miles and miles of true single track trails, most are very technical and challenging. Rocks, rocks and more rocks. No photos once bikes came off the trailer, it was all about riding and keeping rubber down. Weather was perfect 45-75°F, no rain. Primitive camping and bonding with my son. Evenings were more bonding with adult beverages over beer pong. Priceless.

not sure if the tour tech boxes will pass through . carry my work gear in them when commuting .
California lane splitting is why I have a motorcycle endorsement. I split on my first FJR everyday, with the side cases, and when I would travel back to California on the Tenere, I would split with my cases on as well. For how generally piss-poor everyone's driving skills are these days, California drivers are used to motorcycles and tend to leave room for splitting. Still, I developed the habit of riding covering the clutch and brake 100% of the time.
