Anybody else besides ExORG following the "Whats Next Wander Tour" in Ride Reports? Kelly takes great pictures and is very funny. If you are frozen and getting cabin fever ,this may be fun reading. My black cat(yes, the avatar one) is one of the stars of the show today. Kelly is on the ride of a lifetime from Des Moines IA to San Diego via all kinds of roads.

Got back from a campout yesterday. It was about the perfect temp for winter camping hovered around 20 in the day and above 0 at night. Got to see some good rally car racing too.

Was this the rally in Michigan? I read about it in a magazine a few months ago but can't remember the name of it. It was in the Atlanta area if I remember?

Are any of you rough riders up for a few beers? Than and I are breaking from tradition and heading to Hop Cat rather than Founders. We'll be there on Thursday 1/31 around 7pm. Come on over and have a beer or three. They have a beer list that will make your liver quiver.

It is located at Ionia/Weston in G.R. This bar has been rated the 3rd best beer bar in the WORLD!!!

Does Frank drive his car with the same degree of abandon that he rides his bike????

BTW....if your curious what we have been up to at the shop......http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...9#post20632379

THinking since the most common usage of these was by police departments, we may turn this into a black&white patrol unit.

Maybe Than could start an Ottawa County Motor Patrol Unit? At least with three wheels, its going to be harder to fall over.

I guess you could say that he knows how to enjoy the "beauty of all wheel drive" while in a blizzard.

Some highlights from the evening. Disregard the title of the video, as it is incorrect. See if you can pick us out of the crowd.

Only the 360, a Sabre V45 and the three Pacific Coast. The 360 was a turd. I rode it a few months and got a new Yami XS750 triple. Loved the sound of that bike.

Stopped in at BMW of GR to check out the place. Some nice stuff in there for sure.. I was looking over ther F800GS and in the aisle was the massive F1200GSA loaded down and the sales lady came over and and tried to help make some room and her maybe 120lb self start pushing the big bike.. Before I could even say anything about giving her a hand the bike topples over into 2 other bikes. I rush in to help pick it up from nearly being on top of her and the other 2 older sales people go dead silent and are in shock before they rush over to help out too. My first hands on with a BMW GS bike.. and jeez they are heavy!

On another note picked up my bike hauler :) Going to mount in a chock under the jumper seat frame so i can swap between the seats and hauling duties.
