Nathan's bike and some early season rides

Now that spring (and summer) are here, I've been getting out as much as possible and now more and more as things warm up.

A few nights ago, I ran up to Twin Lakes for the evening (actually didn't get home til 1:30 - still moderately light out. Saw a grizzly sow and her three young. Mum reared up and hissed and swatted the earth and air as I rode by. I felt a lot more exposed on a bike then I normally do when I see bears in a car. A bit of fishing (no luck that night, water was a bit high) and some grilled cheese on the fire... mmm.

Mid may I went down to Atlin for the weekend to camp out and explore - took this photo looking south over the still frozen lake.

In prep for the trip, I've done a few mods including wiring in a GPS, some heated grips and a 12V outlet which should come in handy for charging up electronics.

Oh yeah - and the bike? An '08 KLR 650 - low mileage, bought 2nd hand summer of 2009.
