I think you could park this one sideways in the cargo area of your toy hauler.

I dunno, man…the Jeep is pretty small. It's only 5" longer than my miniature `87 MR2, but it's about 8" wider. Still, pretty tiny for a car.

And, yeah, that Anvil color is pretty badass, but I have no regrets whatsoever with my "Amp'd" color. And good luck finding an Anvil Rubicon in CA for less than an arm and 2 legs.

But then you'd have to dye your hair blue/gray.

Woods -

Nice Jeep...

I am keeping my 2013 Jeep for fun service....but for commuting, we bought a green sticker Ford Fusion. Too many angry people on I-80 nowadays...and a 990 with knobblys isn't the best lane splitter...it's the guys with bikes IN their trucks that drift over the lines.....



Would the Englander be a choice for August??

Hey.

I think Steve mentioned the possibility of having the August gathering at his shop.

Steve? Have you sobered up and changed your mind?

Cheers

A+ for the Contour. Lane splitting 880 through Berkeley is not for the faint of heart.

hey, guys…

headed your way in late September for a work/play/housesit gig or 2. Bringing a truck with some tools and my G650X and am looking forward to meeting with ya'll again. I'm also looking for a bike to swap or rent for a week, +or -, to do a short camping trip 2 up, if she likes it maybe more, who knows? the X is not suited for that and would like to find a small bike, something like a beemer 650 or less. don't care about make or model

looking forward tipping beer a beer with all ya'll, if you have any suggestions…thanks

Stephen

I should say NOT since 880 doesn't go to Berkeley! That would be a crazy feat!

No bueno

I don't think I've got the bandwidth to host this month. Happy to support, if someone else wants to have it at their place.
