Yup, they're great trailers. Paid less then half of what they cost brand new.

I've towed a lot with the 2 bike trailer, got 3 buddies that have them. Only thing I don't like about them is the crappy ramp. But I've got the ATV ramp that works great so no big deal.

Hope everyone stays warm tonight.

Calhoun County, SC (WLTX) -- South Carolina's Highway Patrol is reporting a late morning fatality involving a motorcycle rider.

Shortly after 10AM on Monday, on I-26 near mile marker 141, an unidentified rider of a BMW motorcycle, headed westbound, was unable to avoid hitting a dog in the roadway, and was thrown from his bike.

A tractor trailer driver then swerved to miss the motorcycle, but struck the rider, who died from his injuries.

Officials have not released the rider's name, pending family notification.

Albie you are so right on that Kendon ramp. It is too narrow and if you aren't in the center of it, it twists off. I nearly dropped my big bike off it last time, high centered on the frame. I think I'll get a project to my welding guy at work.

Funny thing, a few years ago one of those night time news shows did a piece on fresh seafood. Dallas had the freshest in the COUNTRY.

They wouldn't know the difference and they'd claim it was good even if it was slimy.

2013 AR ADV Camping Schedule

I have a schedule of camping events for the coming riding season. I put a few new sites in this year and kept a few of our old favorites. I hope you all will take advantage of the chance to meet some new faces and ride. As in the past, I will be posting routes a week to 10 days prior to each event. You can find them here on this thread and I will also post in the schedule. Here is a link to the 2013 Schedule.
Take care and enjoy the ride.
