Thanks for your messages, we cannot wait to have some wheels again!

@Dirtydeeds: it has to have a white light shining on the licence plate, which has to be sort-of-vertical. On the bike I bought it is almost horizontal.
Doesn't have to be stock, but should be DOT approved.

I'd love to check it out!

The only 2 pics I have of the back of the bike. I don't recall if it's DOT approved nor if the white light shines down.

I'll be home in a week or so. I'll check then.

I've attached big pix so you can get an idea of what we have bolted onto the Kawi.

Anyone know Kevin who rides an older black Tiger? I met him at a gas station. He helped me find a camping area a couple weeks ago. He showed me an area called Mclain Trail. He is a nice guy and I wanted to say thanks. :)

Open?

Hey guys, does anyone know if the gravel road north out of Coleman is open all the way up to Hwy 40?

I'm headed down to Hillcrest mines to visit family on sat, and am looking for an alternate route home. Riding an 05 Tiger 955, if that makes any difference.
Thanks in advance fella's

That is the trunk road and no it is only open to about 30 km north of the Gap road that goes east to Maycroft. If you were on a really light bike it could be done, but it is officially closed.

Great Riding Weather This Weekend

Weather forecast for the weekend is looking good! Anyone have a ride planned without too much mud? I'm finishing the season with non-aggressive tires.

Well, in keeping with my last ridiculous trip (7000km in 7 days), I'm planning on heading to the Icefields Parkway Campground in Jasper for a Sunday/Monday overnight trip. Probably snow and subzero temps; I doubt anyone is as cognitively impared as I am to do such a thing! I just really want to test my overnight gear out so I can plan for a trip to Alaska next year, and I haven't been able to take the time yet. Some gravel on the way up, to get used to riding on it with a fully loaded bike, but probably mostly slab.

last ride

I am going to try and get to Limestone Mountain (west of Bearberry) before the snow drops. Probably be at least a half day to full day. Just not sure how to coordinate with others as my schedule is all over the place! Anyone is welcome to join in - but might be hard to schedule. I will keep the forum up to date.

I will be riding this weekend as always, I want to hit 532 one last time and see for myself how far I can get, and how the repairs are going. Have a few other spots in mind while I'm down that way. It will probably be a bit later start considering how chilly it is early in the a.m. now. -3 this morning going to work was refreshing, and hard to keep the visor clear..

I have to work on Monday or I might be crazy enough to do that.

@dirtydeeds: something like that is on my bike too, but that won't come through OOP-inspection I'm affraid.

It needs:
- a sort of vertical plate holder
- DOT/SAE approved indicators and tail light
- white illuminaiton shining on the plate.

Do you happen to have the original tail end of the bike? I just need that for a day or two... and via Ebay it will take forever to get it and cost a fortune :-S.

Thanks in advance!
