Who's got the Africa Twin? A bike you don't see very often these days and one of the best travelbikes out there.

I am guessing it is Northriders AT, but it could be a visitor passing through, as the Chapleau Flyer Guy is known to host riders passing through, RTW types also......

Hoping everyone is going to get all the Farkles they want for Christmas! While shopping for my wife, I picked up some crash bars for the Tenere'. If I put them, it will keep the bike from crashing!

I spotted an Africa twin in Winnipeg late in the season this year was pretty surprised, it wasn't even loaded down with touring gear so it may have been a local.

New bike painting project - scrape off the shitty plastic paint that I spent so much time researching and on with the new Plastidip paint Flo used. Hope this one works. If anybody else has experience painting bikes pipe up and let me know what you think

I'm sure this is how crash bars work. I will have them put on next year and hopefully it will prevent my bike from falling.

30th lunch

I won't be here for the lunch and hope whoever made it enjoy the food and chat.
Thanks BR for bringing in the parts from Rob and I'm sure John would like to take a pic of my dash after it's installed.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Lol

That reminds me of Brians ice covered bike on his way down to the tip of lake Michigan in March 2011. He was headed to the east coast.
