Fandango works great on the Husky 630 or the 2t 300...not tried it on the XT225 but I think it would work fine

Both look like good options. I guess I just need to decide what to buy. I did decide to mount the turn signals on the taillight as suggested by WayneJ. It turned out really nice. I was warm and toasty in the garage and when I came out it was snowing!! And it was sticking to the driveway!

Here are the racks with the saddlebags attached.

Skiing?

We are heading to Bryce on Saturday to check out their new quad lift. Probably in the afternoon so we can hit the night rates, $25. Anyone else want to slide down a frozen hill on your ass in freezing temps???

We'll probably head through central PA and do some kind of loop that will include the Adirondacks, White Mountains, some place to eat a lobster in Maine, and Green Mountains on the way home. I love the idea of going to new places but I'm always afraid I'll get home any hear of places we should have seen.
Started to map for summer trip to Canada. Seems we can't escape another run through New Hampshire. Found lots of other tasty roads on this site, incase you wanted some inspiration...

I went skiing a couple of times. I found I saved money and time by staying home and jumping off the handrail of the deck and landing on my back. It was the same amount of pain and I was closer to the couch.

Jarman's closing?

I saw this ad last night on cl for Jarman's "lost their lease" sale this afternoon 1-5 if anyone is interested:
http://charlottesville.craigslist.or...573899006.html

For you out of towners: Jarman's is in the shopping center across from Brown's Honda/Jeep on Rt. 29 N at the Rivanna river, in the corner and down around the back below Acme Stove Co.

Thanks Dana.

We've narrowed our planning down to ten days of camp, ride, repeat. Or possibly finding a nice campground in NH, setting up a base camp and from there doing several day rides. Last night we ditched the camping idea and looked a staying in a motel in Gorham NH and do day rides from there. This morning we scratched that idea and now we're looking at maybe traveling into Canada a bit.

I guess we'll spend the next couple of weeks driving ourselves nuts, flip a coin and get serious about what we'll actually be doing.

Nova Scotia is very nice for a tarmac ride.

Take the short ferry ride from St John to Digby. Get off go south around the peninsula.

They have two provincial "historic" routes that ring the pennisula. The western side is the called some Evangeline Church tours (dotted with HUGE like 2-3 story churches built two centuries ago). The eastern side of the island has some very quaint villages and is called the light house tour. Don't miss Lunenburg or Mahone Bay or Shelburne.

As long as you are that close don't miss Cape Brenton (home to Cabot Trail--another provincial tour)

We couldn't find a "bad" campground there.
