By the time I got home I was too cold, wet and tired to clean the bike. So I still got the chunk of turf jammed between the fairing and crash bars. I'll just follow the tracks back and fix it, before the next foursome plays through.

Ah yes, the reason DSP is the only after market shop I deal with in Canada. Ordered a pair of Pilot Road 3's Tuesday. Was told they were in the warehouse and wouldn't be in shop till Friday.....well, they got to Kenora today. This on a pair of tyres, the size of which nobody in Winnipeg seemed able to come up with? Thanks for the quick service, once again Jody.

It was a fun ride, to bad we didn't stop long enough to get some photos.

You bought a tent for the GS? You have to leave it out in the rain buddy, how else will you wash it?

Thank you Les and Catherine. The open house was very informative for rookies like me and my partner Elsa. I also enjoyed the ride on Sunday (riding the Tenere). The ride was really well organized. Some areas were challenging, but a great learning experience overall. Patrick, the leader of my group came out of his motorcycle several times to give us some tips on going through those difficult spots. Thank you for that Patrick, I owe you a beer. I also want to thank the gentleman who rode behind with me. He has a small bike. I apologize, I'm terrible with names, and don't remember your name. It was great to have your company, and with the GPS we knew we would get there. My apologies also for leaving after our talk over lunch about continuing the ride. How hard was the ride after lunch (because there were some scary parts in the morning)? If I do more of this riding I need to invest in some K60s! Looking forward to warm dry weather and running into you guys on the road.

4:30, sink drain falls out of my kitchen sink. Rotted through. I run in, the guy gives me two complete assemblies and tells me to come in later in the week and we'll sort out the bill!

Thanks go to Wrights Plumbing in North Gower!

Nice to know some businesses know how to treat their customers.

DSP has always been friendly and efficient for me too.

Coloured zip ties and electrical tape would be my guess. I can't wait to get some for my KLR...

No way man, we got the colour matched oem crate. None of that cheezy aftermarket crap.
