    Pretty cool. When I was younger and skinnier some friends and I got into climbing trees, no big trees like that just easy stuff.
    Last winter I read a book about some scientists that wanted to study the tops of the redwoods, the only way to do that was to climb them.
    It was a good book, I just can't remember the title.

    Have fun and don't fall.

    When I was in my teens, my friends & I used to look for tall, skinny trees that
    we could climb all the way to the top & then let them bend under our weight &
    ride them down til we were close enough to the ground that we could drop
    safely down. There used to be a LOT of funny-lookin, bent-over trees in
    them thar woods!

    BTW, Love the AVATAR, jeromehdmc. The local dealer only had a Psycho Purple Limited
    EG but the GF wasn't too crazy about the color, so I went for the Vivid Black Ultra
    Classic EG with the 96" engine. Kinda glad I did, cuz three of my buds with the
    103" have oil leaking/blowing out. All were repaired under warranty, but...
    I added the rack on the Tour Pack & it looks pretty much like yours.
    I gotta admit, tho I miss the heated grips that I had on my 08 Cross Bones...
    The Gerbing heated gear is nice, but a PITA with the wires...

    Growing up here we did a lot of Coon hunting. To train dogs we climbed the trees to run the coon out to instigate another chase and so as not to kill every coon in the woods. We climbed everything. No ropes, no net, and always at night. Of course I was 60 lbs lighter then.
