Just a couple of shots while I wait for laundry...
Full monty when I get home.

It's illegal to hug the cactus...
Probably painful too.



See the two horizontal marks on on the fender... That's from repeatedly bottoming out on Mexican roads...
Time for an upgraded shock if I want to run an RT down here...



Can anyone spot the DRCool sticker? From Puerto Penasco last week.
Fellow by the name of Thor runs this repair shop, good people.



I'd like to post more, but it'll have to wait.

Cheers, Brian

Good stuff Brian and good eye on the Dr Cool sticker.

Brian. Think I spotted a Pilot Road III on the front of that RT! Love mine. Got the same scar tissue on my Super Glide fender when it kept bottoming out on a tool bag. Softly sprung front end on that thing. Guess the RT is a little more for the Interstates? Ride safe mate.

Nice photos Piffle! You have to slow way down for those Mexican speed bumps...haven't you seen the video of the Cop doing an endo on a Harley off of one of those I know you like to fly though!

Be safe!

That's pretty intense, how's the rest of the RT holding up?

Great pictures!

Food shot, Grilled Chicken Cesar Salad, the Summit Run Restaurant at Mount Lemmon Az. Split the romain in half and grill it. Healthy eating.


Pulled Pork on chips... Not healthy but yummy!

Yeah, the topes are rough, but the reverse topes are even worse!
It's also hard to dodge potholes while trying to rail zero camber curves in the mountains of Baja.
Anyway, deed is done, left Mexico yesterday, hope to be back in the 'peg next week.
Been on the road since Jan 19, my sweetie's getting lonely. ;-)
Cheers, Brian

I'm hoping the roads are clear, otherwise I'll hold up for a dayor three.

Great pictures!
Touch wood, except for suspension, and a couple of minor electrical issues, all is good.
Skysailor correctly identified my front tire, which will need replacement when I get back.
Cheers, Brian

If you want, Your welcome to make your way up to Calgary. Although, today winter came back with a vengance. 20cm of snow! It's supposed to stay cooler for the next week, so it probably wont melt for a while. Can't wait for that next schanook.

Went for a ride today. Uneventful except for a minivan who wanted to turn left onto Kenaston from the right hand lane on Corydon...and yes, I was beside them when they pulled this brilliant maneuver. Some horn and a stiff right hand got me out of that one.

As I pulled up to my garage Winnipeg's finest pulled in behind me to have a chat and run my plate.

"Kinda early for the first ride of the year, isn't it?"

"Who says it's my first ride?"

I'm not usually a jerk, but I knew I had done no wrong and they seemed like they could take it.
