    I had planed to leave last week end but I had a few loose ends to take care of. With those things completed, the bike is loaded and ready to roll in the am.
    That was a great article in the mag and just added more fuel to the fire!
    I still should have plenty of time to take some senic routes and be in Dawson in plenty of time. This retirement gig ain't to bad!:clap

    Any more stuff on that bike, spuds, and you're gonna need to strap something heavy to the forks. :lol3

    Thanks for the compliments, gents. With a little more time I think the next article might be a tad smoother. For me, writing a couple sentences and hitting 'submit' is a hell of a lot easier than trying to be coherent and focused for a couple pages. This could take a little practice. We'll see.

    Naw, that load is carefully engineered so as to make his front tire last the entire round trip... might have to spoon several rears on, but one front ought'a do it.

    Wheelies 'R' Spud!



    See you in Dawson, J.J.! :thumb

    At last count we are up past the #50 mark on attendees for this year's D2D.
    With this latest magazine article (thanks Legion) we might be forced to move it to Calgary.:lol3 :lol3 :lol3 :lol3

    We are still deperately seeking SWAG for the banquet give-away Friday night.
    Items can be delivered to FastLane at Hilti on International Airport Road.
    22 days and counting. That is all. Fite
