That's right. Fresh, roasting cattle crap smells just like burning electrical death. Sorry for doubting you BMW. But I did have to hit a pressure wash before heading home to get rid of the continual stank. Peeeeeee - eeeeeeewwwwwwww.

Did you know the original settlers of the plains used that same stuff (after it dries) to heat and cook food on? Wonder how a couple stakes on the grill cooked over some of that "stuff" taste?

I have a filter on my PMs that instantly deletes messages from KLR owners. The software to do this comes free with a BMW purchase.

Holy crap! For real? If you have the means to travel abroad with your bike then DO IT! The CDR will be waiting for you when you get home!

Wow...

it really was the Best CDR Ride Report ever.

Awesome ride report!

If you ever get up to Canada and we let you in, we'll confuse the hell out of you with centimeters, kilograms, liters and kilometers. And if that doesn't do it besides making you listen to Celine Dion we might just use some Ann Murray as well. Somebody might even speak to you in French too.
Oldsilverfox, did you just get home from Guantanamo? Being forced to listen to Celine Dion is enough to make me spill my guts, but Ann Murray is just plain old fashioned torture. I'd rather be waterboarded...

Umm, I gotta follow that! Anyway, I stumbled upon you this a.m. - skimmed through to the post below. Wife and I were both belly laughing...THAT, is good shit.Reading it all now, well, if can get off this last post...


I headed north to the nearest border crossing. I slowed as I approached the entry point, and stopped face to face with a Canadian border guard.

Guard: Hello sir, and welcome to Canada.
Me: Thank you. May I proceed?
Perhaps. Before you may access our country, you need to correctly recite the lyrics to fellow Canadian Bryan Adam's classic rock hit, "Cuts Like a Knife."
What? You are kidding me, right?
Kidding? I don't know what you are talking a boot.
A boot? What does my footwear have to do with anything?
Please begin the lyrics sir, or turn your machine around and return the the USA.
I don't know the lyrics. But I can air drum Rush's "Tom Sawyer" to like 98% accuracy. Does that count?
Everyone in Canada can do that sir. It's part of the 6th grade proficiency exam.
Dammit. Well f*ck you and your stupid metric system then!

Canada. What kind of backwards country uses the metric system anyway? Dividing by 10? How ridiculous. Why can't they just add 1/8 to 35/64 like a real country. Idiots. I bet they are the only dumbwads that use metric anyway.
