So after the debacle of getting underway last season where I spent all of a few hours getting the bike ready and packing for a 30 day northern trip, I was determined to do a much better job this time around.

To get in the proper mindset for my 48th year of ventures across the Canadian border, I’ve been drinking Crown Royal for the past two weeks. Blue too.

The bike is just about ready, and I’ve actually started to think about packing up the required junk. No problem, I’ve got three whole days left before departure. Oops, my schedule is all goofed up and I have to work those days. Damn.

Don’t know why the start of these trips has to look like some old black and white photo of a guy getting shot out of a cannon, but when they light the fuse I’m thinkin’ “Man, I don’t want to be missin’ that net.”

Here we go…this is the bike, a new build for this ride.
