Tomorrow doesn't look promising, but it was a start!!
Too preeeettttty get some mud on it quick !!!

That irrigation canal road out of Carseland would do the trick to get that "new parts" shine off it :)

F650/800gs

I'm looking for F650/800GS riders in Calgary and area. I'm working on a project and need to have a look, take some measurements and pics of different pannier rack designs. Most in need of Jesse's and Touratech Zegas for sure but the more brands the better. There's a case of beer in it for those willing to help me out. Fire me a PM.

Thanks in advance.

Cory

Things are looking up!

I have been out half a dozen times so far this month. Today was the first day I didn't need any of the heated gear to stay warm. I did about 160 kms, over half of which was on gravel south of the city. On the way back into town late in the afternoon I saw quite a number of riders also taking advantage of the early spring weather.

A few photos from my ride







Cheers, David

After taking shit from my friends for the last two weeks, I rode to work today. Snowed later like an SOB. LOL It was great. Finally out with the new Klim Badlands suit. Feels great. Now Where TF is my heated vest controller.

Ride safe my people!

Anybody have a Trailtech or Baja Designs regulator/rectifier they are looking to sell in Calgary?

My friend is having issues converting his bike over to DC and it appears his RR may be faulty. The bike is being shipped to Phoenix this weekend and we'd prefer to have it running before then. Otherwise I'm going to be working on it in sweltering heat in a hotel parking lot.

Thanks!

CDT Trail this summer to finish off my 16,000KM winter get away! Looking forward to it!

Shibby, no lead on a regulator/rectifier but if you can get the trailtech one, its a better unit...

Thanks.

I forget which one I have. I think its the Trailtech one since I have a capacitor too. No batteries in either of our bikes.

I'll see what he says. Worse case we buy one and take it down there with us and work on it there. I have to do a valve check anyways.
