TWO looks pretty desolate these days. I guess they are in hibernation mode now.

Jonesing about being there, though. Maybe in the Spring.....

Yes, They close Thanksgiving weekend and reopen in the early spring. One thing that's nice is they leave the bathrooms open year round so it's still a nice place for a quick stop.

I haven't perpetrated Wolf Pen Gap or TWO in a couple of years. I need to get back.

Did you know that a Honda Ridgeline backed up to the porch right in front of JWillys bike is perfect to unload a FJR?
An FJR fits in the back of a Ridgeline?
Absolutely. The tailgate has to stay down, but it works well. I hauled it all the way to Albuquerque 2 years ago and down to Suches last year.

I throw a Canyon Dancer on the handle bars, strap the front and back off while securing the front wheel, and its is good to go. I even bring my own ramp now. It is a 7 foot U-haul ramp. Plenty wide to ride up and not worry about falling over.

I don't think I have a pic but I will check.

Hell, your barn door is probably my summer shield. I run a Cee Bailey largest in the winter, and a Yamaha Touring shield or a vstream 20308 in the summer.
Rode it to work, came home, and put on the 22" VStream.

I cannot tell you how much I like consorting with this group of inveterate enablers.

Today, I didn't order 18" delkevics for my bike. There's a double standard. Buy a set of Leo Vince signature EOM cans for charity and put them on, and you’re a gosh darned American hero with a bike that sounds better than everyone elses. But let me buy a set of delks and put them on just because, and I'd be branded a heretic for adding such a frivolous item that does nothing for performance or safety. :)

I wouldn't worry about what your BMW friends say to you.

Really.

I'm a wuss. It was only 24 degrees this morning on my commute to work at 4:30am . :lol:

Hoping you make it through another winter. Have you considered getting a small dual sport to be able to ride in snow?

A small dual sport has been a wish list item since last year but unfortunately it would mean having to find room in the garage and I'm just not willing to give up my other bikes I own just for a winter beater bike. I'm going to try hard and make it through until the end of the year as that would give me my first ever "full calendar year" of riding every day. I must admit the challenge of doing this, while a lot of fun at first, does get a bit tiring after a point. I suspect I have more miles in crappy weather than the average rider including members of the forum. No offense intended to anyone. I'm just a bit touched in the head to do this. :ugeek:

Don't worry Chuck...if you keep it up, your FJR will start looking like Hud's.

I perpetrated helimodified love. My brother was nice enough to come and make sure it went smoothly. This is the second FJR he’s helped me install these on. Very happy to have them installed.
