Sorry Ben,

We pay an awfully high price for what dogs bring to our lives. It's worth it to me, but it's damn hard.

Sorry man. What a good run he had. We all should be so lucky - to have a great family and some great adventures.

When I come back I hope it will be as my dog.

Cry

Sorry for your loss, my dog got me thru my divorce too.

I didn't have kids, so Bear, the black standard poodle, was one of the most important people in my life. Only 12, October, Friday the 13th, 1989; 3:45pm

For those of you with pets, Google "A Dog's Prayer". Do not do it with someone else in the room.

I still can't read these without:

Sorry Ben
Have been there and know what a ruff (sorry had to pun!) time it can be.
Warmest condolences brother.

I know... ... time for some new love in your life!
Time to buy a 950 & a puppy!

heated breezebuster

If you have a dualsport with limited stator output, not able to pump 77w into a Gerbing liner or 45w into a vest...this might be the ticket.

30w draw.

I've had a Chase-Harper Breezebuster for a couple of decades, this is the same dealio, but from Aerostich and electric.

RIP Duncan the Wonder Dog 1996-2010

That's a bummer, man...

So sorry about Duncan, I had to go hug my pups after I read this.

Well... clicking on the link in Blakes post, which took me directly to the correct Aerostich product page, yielded an item price of $67....

Brian: remember when we did the Dinosaur Run this spring.. after we slipped and slided all over little cottonwood pass we decided to forgo the next section of dirt (mud) and get on up and over to steamboat?

I'm going to ride that section we skipped tomorrow morning



I'll take a photo in this same spot and we'll see how it compares in Autumn vs. Spring.
