yes more throttle is good, getting pulled over at 40 over the limit is bad


Hi Seth, how come you're not signed up for Memorial Day?

Just do what Deadly does.. go at warp speed but make sure your riding buddy is following a couple of km behind.

That way when the when the cop puts his coffee down, buckles up and is about to turn around and hit the lights some other idiot comes along at similar velocities and can take the hit for both perpetrators!

Right Dan? I think that's what happened on your way into Goose Bay last time..

Thats one way of looking at it. The other would be that I volunteered to go first for a large portion of that ride so that I would get the tickets and not him as his license has way too many already and he was about 20-30 km's behind me when that happened

For the record I do not speed, speeding is dangerous and gets you places too fast.

kinda hard to dodge when you're the only one on the road and it suddenly gets all hardpack and grippy in the sun and when you roll on the gas the cop comes over the hill

I don't think it was anything special - I remember asking Martin about it and he just shrugged and said he got it at the local tool department store or something. Buy any generic one and substitute in tools as required to customize it.

The one I use myself I had my dear mum make for me about 20 years ago :) for keeping all my bicycle tools in it.. recently reborn to keep motorcycle tools! Great things to have.

It looks like the one I bought at Canadian Tires... I don't use it anymore
The way tool are placed is not easy to wrap them and there nothing to prevent tool from getting out of the thing

Then I found this one, much more convenient:
Can't see on the pic but there's 2 adjustable buckle ans an handle.
Also, there's a row of small pocket for socket

Yup, looks just like the "jobmate" one I got from CTC as well, I agree with the rest of your statment as well. I ended uo cutting mine in half(top & bottom) for 2 smaller rolls, not ideal either, but better.

Is that a home made snorkel on your air intake?

Yes Sir...
Using a 2" central vaccum junction pipe.
But I'm installing a R1100GS 1st gen plastic tank (few more liters and more resistant) and there's less room under the tank... can't keep this pipe there.
I have to find another solution... maybe a sump pump in the air box
