Hey Motoriley,

Thanks for the question and the loyalty. We do plan on carrying some RotoPax that works with our Top Rack but we haven't had the chance to get it going yet. Still trying to keep up with the Top Racks & V2 Skid Plates ... ...the support has been great!

In the meantime if you want to get in on this side they have some here; www.quadshop.ca or otherwise of course you can use your ADV disc. with Rotopax directly.

How's your Top Rack doin? Got any big trips planned? ...it sounds like you do!

Dave

We'll be stoppin' by at the Giant Loop Ranch in Bend and outfitting their new orange F800 GS with a MOD V2 Skid Plate as well.

By the way the Orange F8 looks cool with the orange Giant Loop Gear...pics to follow!

Dave,

Great to meet you at the gas station in Austin. You never know where a ADVer will turn up. Hope your trip takes a turn (in temps) for the better.

I'll be contacting you later about a skid plate for my 800GS.

Enjoy the ride, and try to stay away from the snow!

Got a text from him.... said tonight is the first camp night above zero! Holy Crap. Me and my girl are doing pretty much the same trip in June. Like I said to Dave, we'll have the opposite problem with temperature.

Hey Kyle! Great to meet you too! We saw more than a few inmates out there...
Next run of V2 Skid Plates will be available next week. Top Racks are in stock again and Tool Boxes are sold out for a while

So we're back, about 6600 kms (4125 (s)miles) in the 19 days.
We had some mean cold windy weather through SE Oregon and Northern Nevada (where we met Kyle) and we actually had to change our route a bit because of snow. Normally that doesn't worry us Canucks but two up with full gear and the Grand Canyon to get to, no chances were taken.

We spent four days and three nights backpacking in the Grand Canyon around Horseshoe Mesa, East of the corridor. It was incredible and it's a whole different world down there!!

In our travels we also went to Lake Mead, Canyon de Chelly, Mesa Verde, Antelope Canyon, Glen Canyon, Bryce Canyon, and Zion and did some hiking. All amazing and I had even seen a lot of it on my way back from Baja four years ago. Then we got pummeled with more cold and wind coming back up
But we made it and spent our last night camping just outside of the Cascades in WA.

Some pics...


They say it's not an adventure without something going wrong...the electrical system went down so the battery wouldn't charge. Conveniently in Bend when we were visiting Giant Loop guys. (Thanks HOC and Wachs for the hospitality) Not wanting to bump start the bike everyday I took it apart in Bend (Tool Box in action), cleaned everything up and it worked! I also had a fork seal blow out (rotor side of course) then followed a few days later by the other side.


Camp at Horseshoe Mesa. Like I said it's a whole different world down in the Grand Canyon. There's a lot to see that you'll never see from the top. Highly recommended!
We wouldn't have even had the yellow dry bag on top of the rear box if it weren't for the need to carry our backpacks for this part of the trip on the bike.


Off the East side of Horseshoe Mesa. Very beautiful all around...



Camp at Hance Creek...really noisy with all the tiny little canyon frogs belting out their strange sounds...really good though.



Coming back from the ghost town of Pahreah, UT (all pretty much gone except for the refurbished Cemetary which has nothing later than 1896). The old Western movie set had also been burnt down and was gone. One of the few times in the dirt as this trip was pretty much all slab 'cause miles and time restraints.

Equipment side notes;

Brittania Composites fairing and lighting works really well! thread here; http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...ight=britannia

We also used Armored Outdoor Gear's Ratsack critter proof food bag. Highly recommended too! Although we'll have to hang it since we are back in bear country there have been some pretty crafty tightwire walking 'Coons that will have to get their food from somewhere else since ours is now protected. www.armoredoutdoorgear.com


Back to the grindstone now and Tom your Top rack has shipped!

Cheers,

Dave

Hey Dave - Glad to hear you guys made it out of Bend!!! Wouldn't want to push start that KLR for month. Cool to see the Maple leaf here in Oregon.




We had an out-of-control fish feed this night. Couldn't resist the tuna and swordfish which made excellent tacos the next night.




Your skid pan went on beautifully in about 10 minutes. It doesn't look like this now but figured a shot of it all clean and shiny was worth it.




Chimes with the center stand too.

What a relief to have those pipes properly defended.




You guys are welcome here anytime!



Bet those tires don't look this anymore!?

Hey peekay! The V2 Skid Plates are going to be back late Friday from the powder coaters so they will be ready to ship Monday. Thanks for the order...it's headed your way soon!

HighTechCoonass your Top rack shipped yesterday so you'll see it early next week!! Thanks!

Here's a couple more pics from the trip just in case y'all need more inspiration (unlikely)...


Spider Rock at Canyon de Chelly



White House also at Canyon de Chelly...this pic was taken on the great, easy little 2 hr. hike. It's the only hike where you can get close to the cliff dwellings there without a guide.
There is sooo much in the four corners area to see I'm sure I could spend a year there and not see it all.

Now get out there!!

Cheers,

Dave

Hey wachs!

Thanks for the positive comments on the MOD V2 Skid Plates!! Now go jump the bike like in your pics... (example below) We want action shots!!...maybe don't tell HOC you're gonna do it
The skid plate can take it!


The GL F8GS is orange too so slap on the Great Basin and Fandango Tank bag (the orange Giant Loop gear looks killer on the orange F8) and go crazy!

Yes the rear tire is quite worn now but it's time for some dirt tires again anyhow...that's enough slab!

...and thanks again for the hospitality in Bend...the food was fine...don't make us too welcome though, it is nice there!

Dave
