    Wow - the epic saga continues :eek1
    It seems kind of rude to ask,
    but were a set of electric vest, glove and boot warmers considered ?
    I also think you can get a snowmobile helmet that plugs in to keep the shield from frosting up.
    I have a new respect for BMW engineering.
    Aside from the crankcase breather issue, no mechanical problems in the most extreme cold riding ever.
    BMW should take Frosty back and consider it product testing / advertizing and give Paul a new F800GS.

    Hey Martin, can you offer any tips on where a group of folks might park some vehicles and trailers in Bay Comeau for a week? Next year a group of us are taking the 389 and 500 up to Goose Bay on our Urals/Dneprs. Most of the people will be trailering up to Bay Comeau in order to get there and back quicker, but they'd like a safe place to leave their cars/trailers. I was thinking of trying to contact the city to see if they have a fenced in impound lot or something.

    I'm sympathetic Paul - I have this image of you shoving your head up a caribou's ass trying to warm up. Everytime I think about it I nearly fall down in spasms of laughter! I'm getting weird looks at work.:poser

    "Ice in my veins, head up a caribou's ass."

    Hm.
    I need more coffee to create more creative titles.

    LOL! Paul

    As you know, us Northerners do whatever it takes to keep warm.
    And when it comes to changing tires by hand, spooning is your best option.
