Rode the little red Honda to the 6th annual Show N Shine at Riverview Long Term Care Facility. I have attended this event for the past three years. 98% pirates, so I take a vintage Jap Bike as to NOT blend in.

Hope to ride a 305 Dream there next year... Only got a year to find one.

We would like to have all the ADV clan over to GRAYSVILLE this summer for a BBQ and Roseisle Valley ride. Will post a date when it works and weather is looking conducive to a ride!

So what time did we want to do an evening ride? Perhaps 6-7? Other people who have normal jobs will have to decide, with shift work, anytime during the days that I have off is good, I think nothing of going out at midnight for a "starlight tour".

I don't have a plate on either of the gravel road bikes right now. Probably not until after the Julu long weekend.

I could loan you my stop sign for the KLR, besides doesn't the KLR have a stock "plate" and I'm sure I saw a piece of tin on your gs, we aren't doing trails, just gravel roads, at least that was the intention.

Well that's unfortunate. I though you would have either the GS or the KLR registered, bring the Harley I'm sure it would be fine lol.

Would he clean it for you after too. That's what I hear is the biggest deterrent to an HD in the dirt or rain!

Any coolant marked as safe for aluminum, so pretty much all of them.
Save yourself a hassle and get premixed rather than buying distilled water and a concentrate.

Any regular premixed coolant, I used Motul Motocool coolant you will need to buy 2L but you won't use all of it.
