        Light Weight Rain Suit? Frogg Togg! 

        We were on our way to Jackson, MS on the Natchez Trace. When we realized it was about to come a downpour we stopped to don our rain gear. Nope, forgot them. So we rode in the rain to Tupelo and bought a couple of Frogg Toggs rain suits at a local sporting goods store.

        We have much more expensive suits now, but we STILL have these original Frogg Toggs. We wear them for times when we need light weight rain gear, not necessarily only when riding.

          Drifter Friendly Wheel Chock 

          I currently have a Wheeldock chock mounted on my lift table. It is a very nice chock and worked great on my bikes… other than the Drifter! They now make a chock designed for an Indian which will likely work with the Drifter, but that wasn’t the case when I bought mine. SO, instead of buying another Wheeldock I’ve decided to buy the Condor which will work on ALL the bikes I own or am likely to own.

          The problem with the Wheeldock is the rear clamp. It crabs the tire too high and pinches the rear of the front fender. Also the Wheeldock has two uprights in the front which holds the tire. As a result, you HAVE to measure your front tire and buy a version which will work with that tire. If you have a skinny tired bike and fat tired bike… two Wheeldocks would likely be needed… or shims… or something.

          This version of the Condor is both a trailer chock and a garage floor chock. It uses that quick disconnect bracket to easily remove the chock from trailer to use elsewhere. I’ll likely not use that and bolt it directly to the lift table. I have a good enclosed trailer… but I use it for storage nowadays. I have only trailered my bikes 3-4 times in 40 years. I’ll let you know how it turns out.



          CONDOR PSTK-6400 Pit-Stop/Trailer-Stop and Adapter Kit (Automotive)

          The low profile Trailer Adaptor Kit hardware is permanently mounted to the floor of your trailer, and the Pit Stop is ready to be attached whenever you need to haul your motorcycle. The Pit-Stop/Trailer-Stop is our best selling and most versatile wheel chock. It can be used every day in your garage to hold your bike upright to take up less space, to check fluids, or to service it. You can also place the Pit Stop outside on the driveway to wash and detail your motorcycle.

          Features: 
          • Self Supporting Motorcycle Wheel Chock – Use as a Transportation Device or as a Floor Stand.
          • Trailer quick release mounting kit INCLUDED. Aluminum frame with steel hardware and components.
          • Capable of accommodating front and rear 14in – 22in diameter wheels / 80 – 220mm wide tire. Dimensions in the upright position: 29in wide x 30in long x 15in high. Folds down to 6in in height.
          • The Pit-stop can be used every day in your garage to hold your bike upright to take up less space, to check fluids, or to service it.
          • Made in the USA and weighs only 32 lbs. boxed and ready to ship.

            Ethanol Free Fuel Locations 

            This is a great site for locating pure fuel sources in your area. As you may know too much ethanol in fuel will negatively impact bike engines over the long haul. And, they are talking about doubling the amount in fuel.

                Corbin Backrest 

                This is a genuine Corbin backrest. It’s black with studs and will fit ANY corbin seat that fits the drifter and most that don’t. There is a blemish on the back but otherwise this backrest is in excellent condition. Save $70 over new.

                  SureFire P2X Fury Dual-Output LED Flashlight with anodizded aluminum body, Black (Sports)

                  The P2X Fury uses a high-efficiency, virtually failure-proof LED to deliver your choice of either 15 or 600 lumens of perfectly focused light, the latter qualifying the Fury as a pocket-sized searchlight. The 15-lumen level is excellent for general work at close-to-medium distances, and also lets you greatly extend the runtime per set of batteries, a valuable option when you’re miles from civilization. At either setting the high-strength polymer micro-textured reflector delivers a smooth, comparatively wide beam with a brighter central area and generous peripheral light. The Fury is activated with a click-type tailcap switch: press for momentary-on low, press further to click constant-on low; return to off and press or click on again within two seconds for high. The high-strength aerospace aluminum body is knurled for a comfortable, secure grip and is hard anodized to military specifications for extreme resistance to scratches, abrasion, and corrosion.

                  Features: 

                  • Virtually indestructible LED emitter regulated to maximize light output and runtime
                  • Two output levels – high of 1,000 lumens for maximum light, and low of 15 lumens for extended runtime
                  • The Fury Dual-Output is activated with a click-type tailcap switch: press for momentary-on low, press further to click constant-on low; return to off and press or click on again within two seconds for high
                  • Precision micro-textured reflector creates smooth, optimized beam
                  • High-strength aerospace aluminum body, Mil-Spec hard-anodized for extreme durability
