I rode New Years Day and don't need to freeze my fingers again this month. I'll be there in my truck.

Well I'm still thinking on it so it will either be the KLR or my car.

Bob, good seeing you, RJ and Dan today.

This is the RR of Kedgi, aka Dwight, who is riding So America on a KLR. He left New Brunswick in October and is in Ecuador currently.

Took advantage of the recent warm weather and rode up Mormon Grade Rd until I hit the snow.

Nice video. On the still shots, what interval were you shooting? Every second?

How is the camera mounted? Looks like a chest mount?

I took the quad up pikes peak the other day. I went as far as the turn heading down Morman before the snow got deep enough for me to worry about getting the quad unstuck by myself.

Neat video

Neat video!

I got all of the maintenance done on all of the motorcycles, they are ready for another season (Well, except one. Shipped off an oil sample to a lab and the results came back, its not looking good)
And we just recently picked up a road bike for my wife, a Honda Rebel.
Also, we are headed up to the Spokane Motorcycle show this weekend

Versys

Rj,

I was in Tom's yesterday to drop off the Vision for a rear tire transplant. They've got a nice looking '09 Versys in there for sale. If I wasn't overburdened with bikes already (or had a bigger garage) I'd consider it.
