Well Done! That is one great ride report/video documentary. I loved the bear spray incident and the appropriately themed music to go along with it.

Thanks for sharing!

Spring riding heads up:

Watch out for ice on the otherwise clear roads when you go under an overpass! Minnesota under Dimond for example. Don't be in the middle of your lane and hit that strip of ice that is still there!

What kind of waterproof boots do you stock at your shop? (brand & model) Looking for something to wear on trips out of town/around the state, that will keep my feet dry.
