    I have spent a large amount of time over this winter shopping for a toy hauler travel trailer. It would be used for either of the bikes, KLR 650 or BMW K1200LT, or our mountain bike and kayaks. I also watched a bunch of YouTube videos of Trans America Trail and Backcountry Discovery Route videos. I really wish I had a heated work space to tinker with the bikes. Hoping to make that happen eventually.

    Cruising through Gaylord (in the truck) this last summer, I saw one parked outside a pub.
    Could have been that bike. What are you adding to it?

    Late fall - that's the worst part of the winter we've had so far.

    Just working on the bike up here in Chassell. I have gotten on the road a couple times, but it is still too chilly for me to be out there much

    Was that "essential" riding?

    I got all 4 bikes in the stable fired up on Saturday!
