For sure. For a warm dry floor or couch to sleep on you can take it for good long ride. Besides that might get you out of changing Skysailers tires.

Jack and dyna beads. That car will look odd with those bike tires on it. But not as odd as a Bandit with car tires.

I recently completed my management training program on Tire Inatallation. Now fully trained to supervise the install. Jack and I took the course together, though I think I got higher!!!! Lol

Looking forward to that ride around the North Shore, you never know what Shit weather you will run into. Last may I hit freezing rain, fog, rain then -1c at Ross Port.

I think I will be bringing my handlebar Muffs. Have the heated jacket but the hands may be an issue in those temps. Not sure I want to go the heated grips route. They only helped keep the palms warm on my old BMW.

May have to do some research on heated gloves. My cold weather riding gloves and muffs worked well last fall but that was only around town and not any extended trips.

Maybe I'll just warm my hands on a glass of Scotch when I get there.

I'm sure you'll have at least a futon..Greg is on the "special" list, and has his own room here.

Don't let him ride without parental guidance.

Does he get the "Special room" because of the LOUD snoring and fragrant flatulence.

STEAK I may have to buy Wiser's instead. We can both fight with that bottle. Ok I will still bring a bottle of Scotch just because I can.

Classic ADV! Steak, potato, and some kinda green crap.

And 400 beer.

Greg will be OK, we'll just sit him on the bike, put his hands on the bars....he can follow Northriders tail light.

I prefer these without mix..... so one or all may be packed for the Ice Breaker. (I don't mind sharing the Jack)
