    They are a handy jigger, not so easily embarrassed by greater 'credentials'
    Enjoy, :-)

    Well, I think I've beat up the Himalayan enough around these here parts. Time to stretch its legs a bit. Leaving Sunday to do the MABDR. Should be a nice mellow trip for "Sherpa"

    Yes, I'm very interested in a ride report of the MABDR. I had heard of it before but got a renewed interest when I saw this post. Youtube has a brief report on each section - it looks like the Himalayan would be PERFECT for this type of ride, but I'd love to hear your feedback.

    I'll post my report right here. Will be camping so not sure about internet access, bure will try to post up every day. Not much of a picture taker so the report will be basically about the route and "Sherpa".

    The RE dealer in Fort Myers,FL has three Hs in stock. $4495 tagged but then he said $5500 OTD!
    Looks like a nice bike.

    ^^^^^^
    I am not ready to buy a H right now so I didn't get in the discussion about the fees. I have a tag to transfer. Sales tax should be $270 for my county in FL. I have done my own assembly and title work with many bikes that I bought in the crate, no big deal.

    Well I'm a transplanted Iowegian. There's only one fire tower in Iowa.
