    It was a good day at the gunshow today for me. The parkinglot made 3 tow guys rich today too.

    As close as I got to a bike today was watching a R1150GSA roll through the parking lot at Brandywine. Spring conditions at their finest on the slopes - at least the few that had snow on them - too bad it is 2 months early.

    We did. We decided to ride local in the mud. Got about 4 hours of muddy trails in. I'm tired, and my back side is sore from the board in a towel seat.

    He had coffee, I had ice water. I gorged myself then 2 hours later walked through the door to a 4 course meal. Doubt I'll have to eat breakfast tomorrow!

    I did get cold fingers and toes. The Kathmandu gear is no where near as warm as my old combo of Nitro Jacket/Tourmaster Pants. Even with a 90watt jacket liner over a t-shirt, I still got a few chills. The liner in the pants is not all that thick either so next time I'll probably throw a pair of thermal britches under my jeans. My fingers actually stay warm unless I need to shift and brake a lot, then the constant contact with the levers cools them off.

    I need to get it figured out soon so that I can stay toasty on the way to Mississippi next month.

    I am telling you brother, add electric First Gear gloves and socks and stay toasty like us KLR riders. Now I will have to go to see Kevin at Rubber City Vintage Cycles and get a custom milk crate to put all this gear.

    I know most of you have a couple of years on me, but do any of you have kids that ride? I know RXC does, any others? I've been thinking of doing a weekend camp and ride geared toward young riders and their parent(s). Any interest?

    I did, but he traded riding for retardation.

    I'm thinking about opening a milk crate/ crappy storage tote/oily kitty litter bucket salvage yard, we might have more of those than bikes. if you need a milk crate I'm your man I have plastic ones, metal ones, big ones, small ones, if it was used at one time to transport milk and can fit the bulk of a KZ750 in it chances are I end up with it.Nothing better for hauling around a basketcase/brokendream around than a milk crate. you can even haul a broken Honda Dream in a milk crate

    My 125 motor is in an old sawed off cardboard barrel that once transported abrasives for sand paper. I'd upgrade to a crate but all the holes for ventilation and weight savings would cause a loss of fasteners and other small parts :cry

    These were some fine red milk crates we used as seats on a ride. I should have liberated one that day.

    Ditto, morbidly curious. Maybe it was a cloning project gone wrong.
