Here I sit in the SeaTac Terminal, with a 5hr layover, on my way to Salt Lake to pick up a new bike for my wife. It’s a sweet little dialed-in unit (the bike, not the wife… okay, maybe both) not designed for a long highway haul but here goes. The Motorcycle is a WR250X that has been converted to an “R” along with a batch of choice items added on. The future holds the TAT, Copper Canyon and the Shadow of the Rockies for this little jewel but the challenge is to get it to the starting point. As odd as it may sound, the starting point for our TAT trip this coming spring is Ohio so I’m on a self appointed fools mission of riding it from Salt Lake to Toledo starting tomorrow. This could turn out to be more of an adventure than I’m bargaining for. And yes, I bought new heated gear from Alaska Leather and brought screw-in studs……….
