International Motorcycle Show in Minneapolis This Weekend

Going to be a good but expensive weekend for this guy! Looking at getting some new heated gear as well as a new riding jacket and pant combo.

Likely going to go with the Gerbing jacket and gloves for the heated gear and either Klim or Aerostich for the jacket and pant combo.

Will also be looking for coupons for other items as well. I'll be needing a new chain and sprocket set along with a few other minor items for the trip north.


Got an email from the ride leader (Mastery) today telling me that he had signed up for the Dust to Dawson motorcycle ride in Dawson City, Yukon Canada . I followed suit and got in at #72 on www.advrider.com.

Should be fun!!!

Getting Ready

It's been interesting getting the bike and myself ready for the trip this summer. Following the recommendations and suggestions of others I have got my bike pretty well outfitted with a few new accessories to make the trip a little more comfortable.

I'm still looking at getting new riding gear. So many have said that having a waterproof shell versus a shell with liner is the way to go so I'm going to look at the options available and see what would work best for me.

I've been looking at the route as well to identify locations of interest but am still trying to sort out where I will actually end up each day.

That's all for now. :-)
