    Getting out of the country is no problem. Getting back in, not always so easy - Especially if you are on the secret DHS one-way-only list.

    Canada always gets better bikes than we do, the bastards. While you're there, attack it and take it over, they'll never expect it. :deal

    RodKnee, et al,
    Thanks for the welcome and useful pics of other peoples' bikes. If any of you FF's get around to suggesting fun roads for others to ride, I would appreciate you including your favorite Starbucks, or rough trade bathrooms.

    that depends. It came with new brake lines, pro cycle sprockets, a moose racing skid plate, pro cycle saddle men and probably some other little goodies. the shock would probably be the first thing to change but other than that i find it very manageable off road.

    Well, didn't make it to Mt. Greylock. When I mentioned to the wife I was going to go, I got "you're not going to continue to clean out the garage, you know the move is coming up". Since I was only going to go by myself, I surrendered. Sometimes discretion is the better part of valor. :huh

    Amazing how much crap you can accumulate in such a short time, 2 years, plus all the shit I brought from Westchester. I've filled about 35 boxes and I'm not done yet. I fucking hate moving.

    Anybody need a nice 4' diameter glass top patio table, 9' umbrella, and weighted umbrella stand? I put them on Craigslist today, if anybody is interested I'll knock 1/3 off the already cheap Craigslist price. PM me for photos.

    i am not spending $3000+ to rent a bike when i have a perfectly capable one here. Then you add $350 for tires, and refundable if *nothing* happens $2000 damage waiver? and if the bike breaks north of fairbanks or east of tok FOR ANY REASON, even if the bike fails on it's own, it is $3 a mile recovery/replacement fee both ways.

    f that, i will take my own perfectly operational motorcycle.

    *EDIT* i may have been confusing the other bike rental agency up there, as it specifically said no to certain roads/areas.

    Plus you would miss the wonderful corn fields of the mid west.

    Clearfield, PA to East Glacier, MT is 2034 miles of pure bliss for a flatland lover.
