Hello Mor, and welcome to the asylum.
That rig looks like fun. I really like the wheels. How does it go now?

That'll be me! Really lucked out getting it, as it passed through a brief interim owner between Chris and I.

It is a blast and I love it, and so does the hound ...!

Entertaining C90 website.

What I admire about this unit is that if it were carrying two people and the cops get you for having open beer, how can they tell who's driving?

I also like the ADV touches like the hard bags, top, case, etc.

Other than forgetting all of his camping gear he's all set for the long haul (er, weekend).
