but despite that, I don't have any interest in bypassing the 'cross section, as it's one of the more fun parts to an otherwise fairly flat/straight ride. I especially dig the wintry months, when it becomes a Mudbog, good times. we'll have to agree to disagree about that part (Lider is with me at least).
