September weather in Alberta can be crazy, there has been frost in the foothills already and we had to turn on the furnace last night. It's looking good for the trip but in the mountains anything can happen. I'm hoping to get at least to the Idaho border before I have to turn around and race for home, the TID will have to wait for another time.

I'm ready, "Bring it On!"

No Nickname for the transport yet, perhaps one will evolve as the ride develops...it does have a Ninja-like look though

Wow, frost already. Well, we can handle temps into the high 20's (F). Are the leaves turning yet?

The bike looks great, how you liking the suspension? I'm sure we'll figure out a good name. I have a rear brake master cylinder guard I'll bring along that will probably fit if you're interested. The TID may have to wait, but how about the Tura I??? It's not as serious, but still should be fun .

See you soon.

Our new sponsor

Please enjoy the following video which was produced when the chain-oiling system was still in prototype. To get a better idea of how the oiler works, just substitute the word "oil" every time she says the word "mustard":





Because French's wants to keep their motorsports chain oiler stay-clean cap technology from getting stolen, they have only provided us with a prototype that will be disguised by having the same logo and design as their mustard container. I assure you this is no simple mustard container. It is a precisely designed, and engineered chain lubrication system, manufactured to the highest standards, and tightest tolerances. Benefits are:
1. an easily controlled metered dosing system.
2. the system is only active when the bike is stopped, and then only for a brief period of time.
3. one system can be configured to lubricate multiple bikes and chains with minimal disassembly, reassembly.
4. field servicable.
5. rugged.
6. able to be operated with gloved hands.
7. user manual available in multiple languages.

So please join us on the Mobius trip to welcome
French's Stay-Clean Chain Lubrication System
as our new corporate sponsors.



We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship in product testing and marketing.

Full disclosure: aside from the one prototype they have provided for testing, which isn't even yet available for purchase yet anyway, we receive no funding or special consideration from French's. Not even stickers, or complimentary mustard packets!

Some signs of leaves turning but the biggest sign that autumn is here is the Taber Corn
on every corner.
I am loving the bike, left the front suspension alone so I could try it with a load over a distance, but I have emulators waiting to be installed.
Please bring the guard, I'll trade ya for a sweet sprocket puller thingy

I'm just ticking things off my pre-trip to-do list left and right.

Can't wait to see how your top-secret oiler works out! I'm in testing and development for an oiler disguised as a shoe polisher bottle. The little sponge thingy spreads the oil nice and gently over the chain

I'd be interested in how long the sponge lasts...

Fantastic as usual

Just disappointed that you won't be heading east to Manitoba. Your going to have to make Manitoba one of your mobius legs. When you do we'll make sure your taken care of.

Just don't put chain oil on your hot dogs as you sit around the campfire.
