If the soreness in my arm from the first of three Twinrix shots is any indication, our trip to Morocco is getting closer to being reality. Dave has his Morocco map pinned up on his garage wall, somewhere above the KLR. I am starting to brush up on what little french I absorbed and subsequently lost while bicycle racing in France in the early 90’s. It’s still winter here in northern Utah, so not much motorcycle riding has been done. I’m hoping to get at least one weekender down south before packing the bags.
During one of those classic spring overlap days, where it’s not quite winter anymore, but it’s cold and nasty enough to not want to get too far from home on the bike, I needed to go pick up some skis from getting a stone grind tune at Podium Ski Service. So here is my recipe for a BMW F800 GS ski rack. Ingredients: 3 bungee cords. Holds 1 pair of alpine skis reasonably well, even at highway speeds. Of course it helps if you have something to attach the bungees to, in my case, the pannier frames from my Touratech Zega Pro aluminum panniers.
It’s always best to watch out for Skippies when hauling ass through the outback. This video was passed on by Darth Nater, who originally found it passed along by our Touratech friends Tweeting the heck out of the Twitterverse under the @TouratechUSA handle. Check it out:
