Leave it to me to have the one year only style passport, produced in 2005.

Douane had never seen one before, and actually walked over to the US side to check it with the US douanes. Look at your passport the picture is on the first page, mine is laminated to the front cover. WTF.

Thanks to the staff at the Shirley Hilton, and Chris for the massive pahty setup at Loring. 311 mph is rockin'!!!!!

Oh, and the rear Kenda big block is not worth your money, ~800 miles and it looks like it has done the trip already. I'm shopping for a tire this morning.



The bionic Deer flies at the Hilton.




Here's how you do it.



here's not.





Having a bad time...........



Giv'er bye!

Thumb Keep it coming....

Oh Yea!! Looks like you bubs are having a great trip. Hope you get more out of that new Kenda than the last Scott....but don't count on it. That looks just like the K270 (or 271?) that I used to run onthe g/s. Nice grip but soft and not good for the higher speeds. That really cooked it quick. Have loads of fun. Keep smiling.

Happy Friday

Wrong as usual...

Happily I'm thinking I'm wrong and you picked up an IRC GP1 for a tire maybe? What is it? I'll be interested in how it works out. Loving the pics.

Turbine pics please

You Bubs,
Just wondering if you noticed any of the little 100kw turbines I play with. We've got one in Porters Lake NS, three, I think, on Ramea in NL and one in Kensington PEI. Love a shot of them if you're going by......
The Porter's one looks like a NASCAR car with all the ad's on it....tough to miss.

Hope the wrenching isn't anything too bad.

Giv'RRRRRR
