My camera died. My ride back to the Treasure Valley included strong gusting winds shifting across my front along the Salmon. Pulled at 65-75. Pulled well, tracked almost better than running the same winds without spud. The strong left the wind in Riggins. Back to the farmland of home.



Now I'm out and about Boise, chumming for local investors and introducing spud to it's city cousins.

Question

You are on to something--Spud looks great!

I would like to see a pic of the mechanism allowing it to open up and a detailed explanation of how it works.

What about rain? some type of tarp over the part that opens up?

more pics please

Thanks for the positive comments. It helps keep the drive alive. I'm going to run Spud up to Lake Owyhee this weekend and should get a dust of snow. It will make for good pics with the top on. Also will be testing a heater.

No thread. My first proto was so light, I pulled it over to Oregon with my ct90.

Thanks, conchscooter. I got stationed at Key West NAS back in '75. Rode my new XL350 from San Diego with two duffal bags stacked on the back. Back then it was still the old overseas hwy where they pulled up the train rail and mounted it up as guard-rail. I think the sub pits across from the base are still open for stealth camping. Being from the west coast it took a while to get used to swimming in and getting rained on by warm water.

Since I only live about 20 minutes away from Roswell (Nampa), I'll PM you about it sometime soon...

And YES, if you make it, I will buy one!

Maybe soon. Dropped Spud off at the fabricator's shop today. Spud III will be a production proto: Maybe tube framed and skinned with aluminum?

Love the Spud!

Thanks for sharing your trip Papa!
Great ride, great pics and great spud.
From the look on your face, you had a great time too.

I also see you had a bottle of Squirt (nectar of the gods) in the spud. Niiiice!

Great idea, great report. This is why I love this site. I can't wait for the next episode.

Spud brought back memories of Stan Mott and the Cyclops. Google it if you're too young to know.
