    +1 Well said, Evan. Beaver Island indeed...

    Also, right at this moment I am 90 minutes into a 2 hour conference call where my presence, but not my involvement, is required. I have staved off boredom by creating a logo for my biker gang...

    Anyone who's tolerated riding with me on an overnight trip or outside the US is automatically a member, like it or not.

    Let me get to a final version and I will certainly order some stickers!

    I just zoomed in on Google Maps between Kittery, ME and Portsmouth, NH and it's actually named Badger Island. Can someone confirm? Because if that's correct then that right there is FUNNY.

    I've been up there in Kittery ME. I may actually have pictures of aforementioned island.

    Beaver Island is a state of mind that transcends being merely a physical location that can be "Google-Mapped".

    I really thought it was Beaver Island. One track mind, I guess.

    In fact, the "2nd Cousins of Anarchy" Biker Gang has dual headquarters - one in Margaritaville and one on Beaver Island.

    Was good seeing everyone last week. Maffud that dual sport ride in January definitely looks like a good time. Might have to plan on that one.

    A couple more conference calls and now the logo is finished! So... where can I get stickers made locally?

    The fine folks at Carolina Adventure Cycles just spooned a fresh set of Michelin Anakee IIIs on my V-Strom:

    While the wheels were off, they installed a new drive chain and sprockets:

    And installed new rear brake pads:

    My V-Strom is ready for a Saddle Sore 1000.
