    I too thought the show was a bit of a snore fest. I hope things pick up for next year otherwise that may be my last year to head down

    SSR is a Chinese bike, they are the importer for the Benelli and very well may make it. So far I love this little thing. https://ultimatemotorcycling.com/2018/04/07/2018-benelli-tnt-135-review-12-fast-facts/ http://benelli.ssrmotorsports.com/bikes/tnt135.php I was interested in an exhaust for shits and giggles but sadly I feel Yoshimura missed it

    What happens when you don't own a KTM and show up on a BMW?

    Honda Monkey

    I like the bike, well done and brings back memories but at 4K I think that's absurd. I was in the market for a Grom until I saw the Benelli TNT135 in South America. Fortunately SSR imported them to the states a few months ago and I picked on up. Now the Monkey is 4K, the Grom 3,300 but the Benelli was only 2500. It has a 4 valve head, oil cooler, actual oil filter, 5 speed gearbox and great styling. So all of that and the price made it nothing to think about.

    Hopefully not. I'm looking into shipping via Air Canada. Last case we will rent but after the disaster in South America that is a very last case

    Sleeping bag choices

    I've got three Western Mountaineering 15, 25 and 45 degree. The 15 packs into a S compression stuff sack so rather small and the 25 into an XS bag. These are also semi-rectangular bags so a bit more room for braod kids like myself. http://www.westernmountaineering.com/sleeping-bags/microfiber-series/ponderosa-mf/ http://www.westernmountaineering.com/sleeping-bags/extremelite-series/terralite/ http://www.westernmountaineering.com/sleeping-bags/extremelite-series/mitylite/ I completely agree about ensuring you have a good insulated pad, I have a Sea to Summit pad that packs super small but just wasn't warm enough or thick enough for me. It's a great pad just not one I believe I will use again. http://www.seatosummitusa.com/product/?item=Comfort+Plus+Mat&o1=0&o2=0&o3=921
