So off to Minnesota, you betcha!!! It was a bit off a scary ride for me. Having that extra 60lbs strapped so high just made the bike pretty hard to handle. As it is, I am only 5'4" and I can barely reach the kickstand to get it up, so everytime I parked I had to strategically place myself parralel to a curb so I could weight my right foot enough to reach the stand. Well I decided to take a little break north of Duluth, just outside of Grand Marais at Cascade River State Park. And wouldn't you just know it, I put a bit too much weight on the kickstand while I dismounted and it bent!!
Awww shit...this isn't going to be fun. Glad I just filled my tank with a gazillion gallons, oh look, it's purging itself for me..! Now it'll be eaiser to pick up?
