An oasis in the wasteland



Wrestled with a trestle



Found the ZombieStompers big brutha....Patton called for re-inforcements! They match so nice it should come with a bag and pumps.







Guard dog savagely awaits any intruders in the RV while we were out.

Great report and pictures. Now, onto that rack of yours....? alum frame with a soft bag inside? self fab or did you buy? Also, the silver cylinders, (by the way, one of them has a bullet hole in it, FYI.) Are those a spin on the plastic welding rod holders mentioned here on this site?



Any info and close up pic's and detail will be appreciated.

That looks like a really nice area to ride . . . when it's not hot! I can just imagine it being a torture ride if the temps were high. What's the cause of the missing lake? Ancient lake gone, or man made disappearance?



Gotta love the vicious guard dogs! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks fellow Tee-Dubbers!



Wingnut; The rack is self contrived, though the aluminum 'basket' if you will is a factory made Gas can carrier that was scrapped off an ATV wagon. I made the mounts and added the 2 ABS tubes and the lower two AL cyclinders that I get from the garbage at work. They are for sample gases to calibrate various instruments and ere only good fo that purpose once. Each holds just shy of 1/2 gallon, fuel or Vodka, just dont get them mixed up. The soft bag works great cus I can grab it and go, plus I have 2 large cargo nets if things have to attach to the outside. I can lift the bike up with the rack as I mounted it to and through the frame...I think it is pretty sturdy.



FlingWing; My baby's got back....plus her seat is brand new and she does not want to add even another 1/2 inch to the legroom. Once it get uncomfy for her you can bet she will have a top of the line, Rich's custom seat.



Admiral; Yes, it would be brutal in the temps we just had, however the heat of summer finally broke and we had nice cool mornings and wuit before noon reached about 80.I think the lake was essentially a man made affair, and man decided he needed to use the steadily depleting water table for irrigation, so it was drained and never refilled. Our Columbis Basin aquifer is running out...and there has already been guns drawn and blood spilled over water rights.

You better keep an eye out for your bike if you park it near an army base............. (o;. How tall is your wife?? Mine is 5'5" and she can reach OK with the padded seat.. OMM.
