But it's a great build, I must admit.....
You guys think I suck?
I just ran into this guy 20 minutes ago. I tried to take consolation in the fact that my 950 is nicer than his v-strom and my 500 is nicer than his XR... but then it occurred to me that the taxes he paid on a $300K vehicle was more than what all five of our bikes put together cost :huh
Fair enough! Its cool that the heater uses the fuel that the vehicle already uses. Filling the propane tank is a bit of a pain, however we have only done it as a preventative measure thus far, havent actually run out of propane on a trip yet
Jealous of your moab trip(s)!
For some reason, his trailer looks a little underwhelming.
KLR rider hits Powerball
Did you talk to him at all about his trip and whether it happened or not?
The rack under the XR is actually the rear deck that attaches to the truck - he can carry one bike on the deck by itself or uses the trailer for two.
He's headed to Vermont today... says he average about 10mpg.
His "big trip" was supposed to happen last year but didn't for whatever reason.. he's still headed towards it.
iirc he has an ADV username of something like "road trek" but doesn't get on here often.
I got the 500's valves checked, trials wheel put back on the rear, golem filter installed and oil/filter changed.
Then I ran to the store for some essentials
the fridge will be put to good use this weekend
I just had someone contact me (not from adv) and ask me what I would charge to build them a van kitted like mine for them... and they were serious :huh
See you in Moab Geekster....will PM you
So, how much?
I don't know when I'll have ADV access again - but I PM'd you my cel.
I'll be pulling out of Golden 3:30'ish headed over the divide.
Wish he'd be in my neighborhood when his Ford diesel blows up....I'd put a real motor in it and have a real nice rig

do we we even need to say it?
I think we should just for completeness.
Geek = Suck.
Allow me, YOU SUCK! but in a good way.
It's a 16 hour trip for me.
Awesome day... Rode Metal Masher, Bull Canyon, Gemini Bridges. Got wet a few times (was nice to cool down)
...has turned into a beautiful evening though
