I'm thinking he used the Happy Trails Panier and then just bolted them on with wing nuts. I know they seemed to work real good

I wish they made a custom fit for my Baghira. I may have to just order what they have and then customize them myself.

Little feedback please?

Day 2: Dallas to Albuquerque

So Trip and I stayed up chatting and BSing about this that and the other to the wee hours of the morning. As a result, I woke up feeling a little less then stellar. But I learned an important lesson early in the trip. When first arriving somewhere, always ask for a big glass of water before having the first beer

A big thank you to Trip for having me for the night. Trip. I really appreciate it man. Dinner was great. Great seeing you...it was a great visit.

I adjusted the preload a little more and tensioned the chain (foreshadowing )... Drank as much water as I could hold since I knew the hydrating would be the major battle of the day. So, I am off...


It's neat to see the flora and fauna along the way. This is a semi-rare species of Elk found in Texas: plasticus elkus or it could be fiberglasicus elkus but you can only tell the difference in a necropsy.You can see that the rut has begun because of the vegetation in the antlers.


Heading into west Texas.


The belly full of water had been absorbed so it was time for some breakfast. Shogs is a bad influence. Though I did discover that SlimJims can be eaten on the bike. Just shove them up the front of your helmet like a CamelBak.


hung with the boys for a while, but they weren't goning fast enough... I've got places to go.


West Texas...


toasty...


toasty I say...


Texas rest stops are call Safety Stopping Areas or Safety Rest Areas...something like that. Anyway, it was amusing to see this sign in the landscaping around the "Safety Rest Area" building


Someone is getting wet...


Dog in Truck


Cool to watch the storms. Someone is getting really wet...




Well, crap...


guess that soaked someone is gonna be me...


the camera went away during the storm. It was a pretty good one. The temps went from 105deg to 64 in about 10 miles. I had the grip heaters on full-bore and my ass sitting on the Left rear box to compensate for the crosswind. It was pretty cool...in a cold kinda way

Things dried out around New Mexico...


New Mexico is straight...


more storms...


cool clouds...


Me and New Mexico... (lots of time on my hands here...)


Albuquerque HO!...


Mountians must be gettin close


rain showers in the sunset...


Clouds in the mountians...


So, I arrive at hoogavin's house safely... He offered me a beer, but I knew better

Let me have a beer and a big glass of water please

Stats of Day 2.


Day 2 Map
