That's what the "T" mod was about on the KLR's.

I may try to get out to the garage tomorrow and do a few minor things...cleanup a bit and pull the computer from the Husky so I can send it off for the power upgrade.

Still dreaming of a DR-Z250 with a big bore kit.

The Good News!

This arrived in today's mail:

Garmin City Navigator Nordics
Contains detailed map coverage of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden
I've had fun pluggin in POI (Waterfalls, hot springs, glaciers). Seems most of the tour companies hit a loop that is 70-80% similar to eachother. The bad news is that this probably will be just a trip that waits in the wings as a back-up plan.

Having yourself as a crappy tour guide, Iceland gets way cheaper... Bike rental is 140EU($200) day and another $150 day for food/lodging.

Serial Little Trips?

Blaster and I have often thought that going out west with the bikes is a huge time factor. We've pondered how to eat the elephant, a few bites at time.

Surely, the way to get the most bang for your bike is to leave it somwhere for that season as you do-fly-and-rides. The down side this approach is that you spend cash on airline flights, but you get back riding days. Another option would not to take your bike at all, and just do rentals. This spends more cash, but less head ache in one sense.

Just doodling some thoughts down on electrons. The more I think about it, there really isn't any reason you'd need to do these back to back years, and you could ship your bike home between riding seasons.

Cool2 Day by day

I have to say that I accomplished absolutely NOTHING today and it sucks! Tomorrow will be better and more productive! It looks like the first time it was about 5 weeks before they started letting me put weight on the foot. I will be finishing up week two Wednesday so if I am lucky maybe 3 more weeks and I can start moving back into a better life. It also looks like I was full weight bearing by 01 December as well, so maybe December could be back to a somewhat normal life and trying to walk normally....hopefully without pain. The worst part about the no weight bearing on the bad foot is getting on and off the crapper. Your basically doing a one legged squat with the other one stuck straight out in front of you. I am just glad I have pretty strong legs and can do it all by myself, but it's still not easy. Probably TMI but these are the things we normally take for granted.
I can tell you I am more positive this time than last time but this not being able to do much sucks none the less.

In case you guys were wondering where this all came from Keith's brother apparently lives out in Utah and has a rather large garage with an extra stall. So the plan is to get bikes out there and then buy basically a commuter pack of airline tickets to Salt Lake and go explore the area on our bikes on weekends and long holiday and then at some point bring the bikes home via shipper or maybe ride them who knows.

Ok, so those highlighted in yellow can run a 5k, no matter how slow. Of people on that list, what other workouts are you doing right now?
