We're not in Illinois anymore...A Grand total of 1160 miles and 24hrs behind the wheel for our 6 day weekend.
The Sienna did a great job of pulling the trailer up and down the Smokies AND the Appalachians.

Hello, any idea where I can get a luggage rack like this one? The one I found on ebay just doesn't work for me.
Any help appreciated! Thanks

Hard to believe Piglets 49yo. Still running like a champ…and it only took 49 kicks to get him going. Actually I can’t recall the last time I took him for a spin…maybe a couple + years.
Thank goodness for pure gas.

Just as sharp as ever. I'm just starting in on a friend's XR100R. My first journey into the small singles. Should be a blast!

Thanks my man, yes the little ones are truly the most fun. I love that it’s just as capable, both on and off road. Looking forward to see your friends project completed.
