The prep begins

Kim will be riding a DR650. Unfortunately, it doesn't have any travel gear on it so I have to add some.

So, viola'... UPS delivers....

Some Happy Trails Teton 9" panniers and a Happy Trails top box.

Time to start the assembly project. First off with the side panels, seat, turn signals and rack...

Then sort out the frame and miscellaneous bits and get to work...

Although I love the panniers and top box, there is a small hitch in the assembly. The instructions say that you MAY have to lengthen the turn signal wires. It should say that you HAVE TO lengthen the turn signal wires. Anyway, not that big a deal but another step added...

and then...

About this time, there's a bit of an interruption. My three "helpers" need to be fed and are banging on the door of the garage. So it's time to feed (and I'll use their best pics ),

DESMO - What me? I didn't do anything.

His sister: PRILLER - Who you looking at?

and as if you couldn't tell our unrelated cat, ZIPPER (head); not the brightest cat we've ever had. You can't tell from this pic, but he is 23 lbs. That's why he's wearing black. He thinks it's very slimming.

Mission completed, it was time to go back into the garage and get back to work.
