    Leave it to me to have the one year only style passport, produced in 2005.

    Douane had never seen one before, and actually walked over to the US side to check it with the US douanes. Look at your passport the picture is on the first page, mine is laminated to the front cover. WTF.

    Thanks to the staff at the Shirley Hilton, and Chris for the massive pahty setup at Loring. 311 mph is rockin'!!!!!

    Oh, and the rear Kenda big block is not worth your money, ~800 miles and it looks like it has done the trip already. I'm shopping for a tire this morning. :cry

    Oh Yea!! Looks like you bubs are having a great trip. Hope you get more out of that new Kenda than the last Scott....but don't count on it. That looks just like the K270 (or 271?) that I used to run onthe g/s. Nice grip but soft and not good for the higher speeds. That really cooked it quick. Have loads of fun. Keep smiling. :clap

    Happy Friday

    Happily I'm thinking I'm wrong and you picked up an IRC GP1 for a tire maybe? What is it? I'll be interested in how it works out. Loving the pics.

    Bummer you let the brown grease out of the bearing Scott. They don't work too well that way. Looks like it happened in a good spot and you got a tool you're used to, A big hammer :rofl Hope the trip home goes well for you bubs. You missed summer in VT while you were away. We had our 90 deg couple days last week. The season is changing....

    You Bubs,
    Just wondering if you noticed any of the little 100kw turbines I play with. We've got one in Porters Lake NS, three, I think, on Ramea in NL and one in Kensington PEI. Love a shot of them if you're going by......
    The Porter's one looks like a NASCAR car with all the ad's on it....tough to miss.

    Hope the wrenching isn't anything too bad.
