Haha! Great video. I'm already mentally designing a support rack for it. I'm concerned about the gallon jugs swinging free like giant snake testicles, so I think some heavy steel jock strap style restraints are in order.

Donald Sutherland. A Canadian posing as an American. I attended a jazz concert at the Haskell Opera House in Derby Line. VT/Stanstead PQ. Mr. Sutherland was groovin' a couple of seats over.

Eight more months of this?

Extrapolating, there will be over 30,000 posts and we'll all have lost our minds!

95% of hunting and fishing is getting ready for hunting and fishing.

Unfortunately, the cold weather has my riding hobby stats holding at about the same.

Or...

We could take a nice January ride on the TET. Maybe trailer to southwest VA and head to FL?

We could just go down to the Keys and kick back. . . just sayin' I've wanted to ride the Outer Banks in the off-season, though.

Went out and about on the KLR this afternoon. Adventurous. The pavement was good. Some of the gravel had a skim of ice over it, which woke one up.

Hands fine, torso fine, legs fine. Feet a little chilly. However, how come no one makes a heated jockstrap? Ow.

You callin' me slack, 250 boy? Bring on your alligators, son! I got some Golden Boys on the 650 that will eat up all that sand. Ho -- wait a minute -- guess I'll take the DRZ or the KDX. KLR and Sand = low fun quotient.

You serious on this one, Rich?

I'm scouting the Rock Ride, not the sand ride. I do my best thinking above 70* and with BBQ. Hence my current location.

Hah!! That's what we call Long Range Recon, Rich! I suggest any all that are interested in this trip hustle their butts over to http://www.ridetherock.com. It's a great forum, with a bunch of cross-over to ADV. Not only is everybody very friendly (the notorious Skibum69 has already asked if we'll stop over at the celebrated Skibum Soiree), but I've already gleaned some excellent information on making my Android tablet more functional on the road. Good folk over there!
