    Was so nice yesterday, and this morning it looks like winter again! I know we're moving forward (into spring), but not exactly in a hurry, that's for sure! Took Mark for a spin out to Beaudry Park yesterday afternoon... still a bit cool out for sure, but what a nice afternoon! Here's Mark enjoying a coffee from KLR cooking station Vers 1.0:

    I think Mark is just naturally happy. Getting out of the city IMO is always good for the head.

    Lyle - the pannier is the H-T Teton 7.5" wide... more on them here: http://wiki.happy-trail.com/

    Going to order a set fro Happy Trails and pick them up in the States. Same price as a new Garmin Zumo 660. Way more bang for the buck though.

    I think you'll be happy with 'em... sure seem nicely made (good seal system!). Good idea IMO to buy the optional single point key lock. Beats 2 padlocks (per box) banging around.

    haha...We had some pretty darn good stuff out there......super nice to go for a ride and NOT be on the ice for a change.
    The hack is fun to drive, kinda felt like snowmobiling a bit.

    I like my HT panniers too. Top loading is great and the optional lock is worth it IMO. They are well made.

    We have a pet carrier we use to take the dog riding with us. It's a bit too low in the ceiling height and we're thinking of trying to raise the roof to give the dog more headroom.
    Does anyone know of someone that does this kind of work. The carrier is made of heavy nylon with rigid panels sandwiched between the nylon to keep it's shape.
    Perhaps an upholstery shop or the like?

    Gotta keep the dog happy when riding. :D

    AWESOME !! That bike sure does look good in the photo Greg.

    Brings back lots of great memories for me. Won my first Manitoba Roadracing Association #1 plate with that exact model in 1984. It was so much better than the 1981 LC350 I had the year before. The RZ was a real weapon back then and could run with bikes twice the displacement. Probably had somewhere around 8 Yammy 350's over the years.

    Here is a shot from 1986 at Gimli.
