Still feels like winter here too...

Just came back from a ride. Thank God for heated gear! -6 or so, and a 20 km/h wind makes for chilly! Roads were darned greasy.

Thnx. Hope it hangs in there. The rack it's mounted to could be beefier.

What a difference a day makes...

Was so nice yesterday, and this morning it looks like winter again! I know we're moving forward (into spring), but not exactly in a hurry, that's for sure! Took Mark for a spin out to Beaudry Park yesterday afternoon... still a bit cool out for sure, but what a nice afternoon! Here's Mark enjoying a coffee from KLR cooking station Vers 1.0:

Pannier...

Great shot Daryl!
Was there a little something in the coffee to get that grin on Mark?

I think Mark is just naturally happy. Getting out of the city IMO is always good for the head.

Lyle - the pannier is the H-T Teton 7.5" wide... more on them here: http://wiki.happy-trail.com/

Going to order a set fro Happy Trails and pick them up in the States. Same price as a new Garmin Zumo 660. Way more bang for the buck though.

I think you'll be happy with 'em... sure seem nicely made (good seal system!). Good idea IMO to buy the optional single point key lock. Beats 2 padlocks (per box) banging around.
