It may be a while before we (ughhmm, Dave) gets to posting as we have some major road blocks with a DSL burn out upon our return. Currently waiting for a new router from verizon to be delivered and hope to have all systems up and running soon so we can get to downloading mobius 8 photos.

Hope you all stay tuned as it was a great ride from beginning to end .

Funny thing JD. I was reading an article in backpacker magazine about bear encounters and there seems to be support for her technique.

Thanks for the visit!

Dr. Rock and LDF,

It was really great to visit with you. I love that we've known you on both coasts, and that we were finally able to be a part of your Mobius Trip.

Here are some shots of our visit:

Ever wonder what happens when two gear-geeks get together? Dr. Rock and Questor discussing all the fine points of good gear. This segment is gloves.




(It's a long conversation.)




Next topic? Kermit Chairs (complete with in-kitchen demonstration)


Ever wonder what happens when four ADVriders get together for breakfast? Everyone at the table whips out their cameras to take food pics.


3 KTMs + 3 Suzis = one nicely full garage



Questor takes the opportunity to break out his new toy, the pressure washer!



MAG gets a free bike wash!



A little DR maintenance



Good thing LDF is a professional!



Francine, I really enjoyed our trip comparisons.

Can't wait to see y'all in the Spring.

~MAG

Let's just say there was an uncomfortable silence,



and some sheepish grins,



and if by some means, a few months from now, one of those boxer or v-twins gives birth to a little thumper, we are NOT responsible for maintenance or oil changes.

Now that really made me laugh!!! I'm pretty sure I just woke up the guy in the office next to me from his pre-lunch nap.... I know I'm way behind real time on this RR, I just recently found it and to say the least....I'm hooked, I have a lot of catching up to do but I refuse to skip ahead!!

Great ride report as usual. Loved the review on the "TKC-90's." Now I'm thoroughly confused.

Heh... next sleeping bag for LDF.

Nomenclature:

Cure your fear of bears by pretending you are the mighty hunter and have slayed the terrifying bear. Then strut around the room wearing the huge bearskin to show off your prowess. OR take the sleeping bag camping and you can scare the be-jezuz out of your friends when they wake up next to you.

chain lube

Belated response to lubing an O ring chain: Get the oil into that tiny space between the end of the roller and the side plate. Oil will go in there, to the pin and work it's way up inside the plates, but the O ring will stop it from coming out. I know this works, because when my chain is dry and kinky - OK, there's a straight line to play with - that cures it, and it takes some time to dry out and get kinky again. I get well over 10,000 on chains, even in the dirt.
PS: Love that bear bag!

Oh that's funny. Think I'll order one for the September leg of our trip to ward off the Wyoming and Montana grizzlies.
