Thanks.

20 sec I think. No flash, no tripod. Just a piece of rock to set the camera on and a headlamp to paint the light on to the bikes.

In speaking to the guys that did the coating, they said that wrapping the headers is intended to achieve the same result however is less effective... I also think the silver treatment is a great way to insulate as well as add some bling... AND easier to clean than that fabric wrap. As for me, I wanted maximum insulation so I had them done in black but then had the heat shield done in silver just to make it shiny

I thought the best part of that was when you traded bikes with Lica and left him your out-of-gas machine.......nice move!!

Somebody getting towed, or sneaking up behind him for a reach-around?

Sandon is one of my Favourite stops through the West Kootenays. The road up to Idaho Peak is a must hit also. I remember those Buses running around Vancouver when i was a little Kid. Not sure how they ended up in Sandon?
Also not sure if you noticed, that row of Buses, on the far left in the lineup, one of them actually has Wooden Doors on it ? Very Cool !

Yea, we really enjoyed the area...but we missed Idaho Peak! I vaguely remenber reading about it before this trip and while in Sandon it also never came to mind either oh well, next time.
I also have great memories of these buses from the '70s in Vancouver...

Nice...I think I've been there. With 50s electronic buses and the train on the other side ,right?. I rode there from Toronto and zipped through the logging roads. What a trip.
