Looks like your fantastic fan vent is open..eating beans last night?

Did Paul and Derek head wuss out rather than sleep under the stars?

Or maybe they sleeping under the van?

Note to self: take heed in the forecast before you leave.

If there is crap weather forecast.. put the bike inside the van instead of being lazy and throwing it on the back bumper

I'd think you want a plug for the exhaust too.

How do you like the trials tires?

I love the MT43 on the rear in the steep stuff.. but can't stand it on the front.
I'm currently running an MT21 on the front with it.

For emergencies like this, get some Tyvek and just make a burrito (not pun intended) out of the bike to keep it clean.

Or one of this style of deflectors for the Sprinter....

We got in two full days of riding.. then the snow cancelled day 3. No complaints here s

I washed the van and the bike as soon as I dropped out of the snow on the way home.

That's a great idea! I wonder if I could stop at a grocery store and just use a full roll of saran wrap on it before I go over vail pass?

Hell I think I'll keep a roll in the top cabinet of the van just in case

or.. get the plastic wrap they use for shipping: http://www.amazon.com/Rolls-CLEAR-St.../dp/B000UH6SH2 ... much stronger than grocery-type plastic wrap.
