I dropped my camera for the first time this week and broke the LCD screen so getting these pictures took a bit longer than I figured but for those of you who wanted to know about it here she is. The outside atleast.



It is a 2003 E250 fully extended. Full cargo, no carpet or anything. Fold out side doors and windows on the side and back. The only thing I would have asked for was cruise control. I'll find a way to add that later.



One owner, 87,000 miles and it runs fine.

Its got enough room for two bikes plus gear and it can still have a bench seat in front of that for more people. I plan on building one side up with racking that will second as a platform to sleep on and leave the other side alone to haul a bike. The rest of the van can stay empty and be used to change, hangout, hold a cooler etc and still be clean and organized. Once I figure out where everything will go i'll insulate and carpet the sides and roof and put a rubber mat down for the floor.

My goal was to keep it flexible so I can still use it as a truck but also have it be a simple RV. I can also use it as a mobile garage (damn near like I do my jeep now ) if I move for a job but don't want to buy a house and instead stay in an appartment (highly likely).

Now I just need to finish the bike so I can get to riding

This is basically a HNF police meeting about woodsrat.

I thought that video was played out, but that version was hilarious.

It could just be the fever talking though...

I don't normally get the flu shot, but this one may change my mind, I've only been this sick once in my life.

Same thing for my 99 380, are you installing it?
Let me know how it goes and if you would like to install another soon.
Mine looks good, paid $100 for it.
What do these run new?

I happened to be outside at the time and saw this sunset. It was awesome.
I am lucky to have a pretty decent place to take sunset photos about 500ft from my house otherwise I wouldn't have caught that one. It was really fast even for a sunset, I don't know what it was reflecting off of but i've never seen another one like it. There were literally no clouds. It was cool.

I'm gonna have to skip it this week too. Headed to pick up a '74 Honda MT250 Elsinore that my brother bought off FleaBay last week. Will bring it back home to store it until he gets out here from NY to pick it up.

Christini AWD

Hi all, its a cold winter day and I was doing a bit of surfing and found this:

http://www.christini.com/bikes/christini-awd-450-ds

Sorta like the old ROKON AWD but way cooler! Anyone ever heard of this before?

I don't post much but enjoy reading others banter! Looking forward to trekking down for lunch one Sat. (I won't be pulling the bike outta the garage until the weather is at least 50. )
