We have been planing this trip for a while. I remember January 10 sending a text to "beemerjim" (Jim) and "hulkedup" (Keith) that we had only 4 months to go before we leave on our trip. This gave us the hope we needed to make it through the rest of the stinking winter !! We are leaving this Friday May 10 and I am going to try to do a live RR as we travel. There will be lots of photos but the videos may have to wait until I get home to use the big computer. Here is Keith, developer of the Trans Mass Trail on his trusty KLR. Here is a video he did about the mods to his bike. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/jAh02DNlMEY" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> Here is "beemerjim" Jim. If you every want to ride dirt roads in Western MA get a hold of Jim. He can lead you on a all day ride and never hit the same roads twice. Here is his KLR ready for the adventure. Here is yours truly , "spinalcracker" , (Mike) sporting the doo rag for when I get to Deals Gap later in the trip. Some glamor shots of the 800GS My sidekick A quick video of me packing the bike. Espresso really makes the packing go faster. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/kSZX7zYNRgE" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> First stop is Mrs Murphy's donuts in Southwick MA Friday morning 8 am.
