My friends in Saskatchewan and Alberta both talk to me about good rates out that way.

Ohhhh...to have BackRoaders spare time...looks like it'll work well, though.

Sure beats crawling under the bike.

You should paint it with floor paint, that way all the wood won't end up soaked in oil.

Will do, just need to get the heat up on the garage, so the paint dry.

Jack sent this link to a few people I am sure, but I wanted to post it on ADV, if it hasn't already been posted. Scroll down about 1/3 of the way and watch the 20 minute video of the two older guys and how they live their life on two wheels! Truly inspiring!
Thanks for that link, great video.

Happy New Year everyone!

I had plans to be at lunch yesterday but got felled by the flu on Friday night. Still not 100% but at least I'm up and about.
I did sneak up with Lynn to Polo Park yesterday afternoon but likely should have stayed at home. I ran into Carl and Deb there so if they get the bug in a couple of days I appologize profusely...

Hope to see you all sometime before spring,
Ian

P.S. Charlie and I have our sleds idling and ready to go so LET IT SNOW!!!
