That would be Dave Fisher, Fisher Upholstery-939-6513.

Dave does good work and is a good guy. Ditchbanker traded me for my DR seat Dave did and I believe he's gotten plenty of use out of it.

+1 on Dave and Kris Fisher. Very nice people. They do great work at reasonable prices. I will be dropping off my V Strom saddle from the new sidecar outfit next week for him to do up.
They are on the south side of Beacon Light, about a mile west of Hwy 55.

Sam,

I used to cross the lake in the boat, moor up at the bridge, and walk to the store for 'supplies'. I was fishing at the bridge last weekend reminiscing about what a wonderful beer run that used to be.

That's a wonderful memory, I peeked a look inside and it's been totally remodeled more like a big living room now; perhaps a warming shack for snowmobilers now.

Yea back in 95 it was the store, the cabin out back (living quarters) and that big ole metal work shop next door for a very reasonable price, but the wife herd the realtor say we'd have to snowmobile our kid out about 3 miles everyday to get our kid to the bus stop as they do not plow out this far in the winter should have seen the expression on my wifes face.... she's a city girl...... needless to say she won.

That would have been a great commute every morning and evening with the daughter. I'm sure you would be timing your run after dropping her off. Was the bus stop all the way in town or the corner of Rosebury and Dawn? I don't remember it quite back that far but seems in '98 they were plowing all of that at least as far on West Mountain to the No Biz turnoff and sno machine parking.

Rain reading

I trust lots of riders were able to get out for the weekend. While I finish up a report or two of my own, here are a couple kid-themed tales from the trail to perhaps pass the time while more showers pass.
(not exactly adventure rides so just on my blog)
