Just past the last few days taking the level 3 training (as long as I traveled there, I also took level 1 and 2 again) with Bill Dragoo from D.A.R.T. (www.billdragoo.com).
Last day was Sand. As the instructors said, that day, Sand was "gnarly". Here are a few pictures (photo credits to Susan Dragoo and Jenny Vigil):

By the way, I busted my fender. I think a rock when through it:

I would like to install AdventureTech's fender risers. Anyone has experience with those? Any other recommendations? Do I need to change anything to the brake lines?

Also, any advice where I can buy a new fender?

That looks like first class fun. I intend to put the fender raiser/riser but haven't got around to it quite yet.

Great experience, deep sand and slippery mud, two of the worst scenarios, I try to avoid.

Every now and then I hear a rock scraping inside my front fender, was thinking to get me a fender riser kit, I believe it raises the fender by only about 1/2 to 3/4", which is better then OE, but I wish it's more, like 2" at least, but then you have to modify brake lines etc. Suzuki should have allowed a 2" space on "ADVENTURE" Vstroms :rolleyes:

Maybe you can plastic weld a hole in your fender, there is a good "plastic welding gun" on Amazon available that works great.

Just got my new fender from Partzilla. They claim it is Suzuki OEM for only $42. They both look exactly the same!
