I have been considering drilling drain holes in my Mojavi... I ride in the rain and it and even though I have throughly seam sealed it I my air pump and tools have been flooded too many times with it. It is pretty water proof in that it holds the water like a bucket A drain hole might be a good thing...

It sure is handy for that week of sunny weather though...

yeah, I looked at mine, too.
Sitting in the cold-ass garage in a puddle of it's own brownish blood.

Hard to get motivated in this cold. If my Garage was heated, I'd go work on it right now. Be more fun than sitting here, wide awake, and staring at this android screen instead of sleeping like the weak folk

I'm healed fine. Skiied my ass off last Monday night
It's Punkin that needs to heal, now.
We saw 40 degrees for a short time today,
but spent the time walking the Hooligan Hounds through slushy snow on a logging road.
They've been pent-up, too

I realize that GL sell bag stuff sacks for the larger bags.
Some are, some aren't. Has only been a problem for me when it's really raining hard, showers no big deal.
Here's the ones I went to when I drowned my electric pump in November. http://www.rei.com/product/780949/ou...sacks-set-of-3

AJ - Time to move the bike to the heated living room to work on it?

I agree, move it into the kitchen, or turn the cargo trailer into a heated KTM rebuild shop.

Try this, everything's right there: cold drinks, cooked meals, TV, music...& warmth!!

The heated part is a bit small for wife, 2 dogs, and Punkin...
I did pull it inside last Winter, when Mustangshelly had two graveyard shifts in-a-row.
I got the Scotts Damper, BRP Triple Clamp, Euro headlight and dual HIDs done in one weekend

I'm sure we could rig that wood stove up in the cargo trailer for a trial run, just shoot the stack through the upper vent!!
I'll supply the bar shelf, bar chairs & fridge!
You set the speakers up.

Although, depending on the consumption, there may be a mergence between punkin & a neglected Honda Shadow.

You could even trailer it to a different ADV'rs location each Friday night...for ideas, help & customization!

Out for a blat today.

Needed to charge the battery today. Took a little ride over to Crown Pt via Bull Run.

Mt Hood, with good cover.


The 'once beautiful' Crown Pt Vista house?


Looking east up the gorge.


Beautiful day, great to get on it!

That bluff in the distance behind your bike is Crown Point, and the building sitting on it is Vista House.





This is the place in your pic:

Thanks for the reminder Squishy..............I forgot all about the warm wrenching area that I have (the wood stove is just off to the right)
