I actually kind of want one! Too bad there is a marked lack of financials for it...

Looks like a great spot, but your hitch carrier is askew.

Cool2 Hitch carrier

I could have used a hitch carrier recently for the third bike. It would have left more floor space for the plastic bins.

Time to upgrade to the long wheelbase model.

Just made it to the last page of your journey. Very entertaining and very cool what you and the Mrs have pulled off.

I see that both of you use the Highway Dirt Bikes protectors. I am considering a pair for my Dakar, you like yours?

Thanks for sharing your van story, excellent stuff.

Building an Adventure Van

We love all of the Highway Dirtbikes stuff... I've had it on 6 bikes so far.

This story is to be continued.. We are in the process of (hopefully) buying a home that has a "Sprinter Workshop".
If it happens... the project will continue in an enclosed environment that is going to allow me to do a lot of things I wouldn't be able to do otherwise (color change anyone? )

I'm also on the fence between buying another set of BFG AT tires and siping them for more traction or trying the Duratrac Wranglers with siping and studs (the new house is in the mountains at 7800 feet and getting up the driveway is going to be a big issue come winter )

Hopefully I can make it through the summer on what remains of these:
