    I got a buddy who loves this stuff, and his last name ends in 'berg. Interesting.

    There is an old joke about a recipe for bluefish (for those that don't know, they are a very oily and fishy tasting fish, not very desirable). Recipe is something like marinate fish for 24 hours in fridge. Place fish on a 12 X 12 Cedar board. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, thyme, lemon and garlic. Cover with foil. Bake in oven for 20 minutes at 350. Remove. Throw fish away and eat the board.

    I think Haggis is the same.

    I also think its awesome how we've brought realbtl's thread from how his son in law caused $500 of damage to his bike to banging sheep and recipes for haggis.

    Welcome to the REAL VFR world, beetle boy.

    Now I'm wondering if the Scots have haggis cookoffs like we have those chili and barbeque cookoffs. Probably so, but they won't admit it..;)

    See if you can find some smoked Bluefish. Oily fish take well to smoking. We have a fish here called a Candlefish. So oily so that they were actually dried and used as sort of candles.

    I have to admit it has been an interesting and entertaining thread.

    Ordered up the fairing parts from RA last week, should be getting it fixed up next as well as new tires and heli-bars. After a couple of warmup runs to get myself back into shape for riding in VFR configuration I'm going to do a little 600 mile overnighter to Idaho. I want to do this road on something a bit sportier than my Helix or SWing though it was fun on those.

    Should be an awesome trip once you get her all fixed up. Good luck, and make sure you take some pictures along the way.

    The problem with Lolo Pass is when ya get to the end you want to turn around and go the other way. Especially nice because of the small number of LEOS.

    You people have some serious issues... But it's effing hilarious!!! And as for the stepson, if he didnt mean it, cut 'em some slack. My father knocked mine over unintentionally. :hurt: Broken clutch lever was the result. As for the fairing, if you someone that can paint, by all means I would fix it myself. If not, save yourself the constant eye-ache, buy OEM. Just my opinion...

    Nah, lots of options. Earlier this year I went South; McCall, Stanley, Challis, Salmon then back to Lolo MT and home. Since I want this trip to be overnight I'll go North to St. Maries, Kingston, Thompson Pass and home. Idaho and Montana have a bunch of county and non-numbered roads with no traffic or LEOs. Helps make up for winter.

    Thanks for the travelog. It would be better with a map IMO. If you are ever in Texas I can route you through Cut and Shoot, Bugtussle and Clute.

    Oh thats right. those non-numbered roads are probably not on any map. Ya might be considering a spare R/R under your seat and some sheep repellant out there in the boonies.

    I'm willing to dip a toe in TX, my mom's family homesteaded around Valentine, Marfa and Fort Davis. As a westerner I start getting shaky too far east of the Continental Divide.

    I use AAA maps for a start and if you look for the cities mentioned you can pretty much trace my route. Once I get a rough idea I zoom in on certain parts on Google Maps to look for the small, named roads. These are usually OK though the goog one time told me of a campground on a small island off the BC coast that turned out to be on a different island with no ferry. Fun times.

    Yes, a large printed map is a good start for overall scale. Updates on Google are not minute by minute. Satellite views especially.

    Some of the dudes here have those bigass GPS units so they don't get lost "out there". I have a 15" (diagonal) Plasma for watching Oprah re-runs on those long stretches of slab.

    Gotta tell ya that either way on Lolo on a VFR is great fun. Just IMNSHO (you will get used to that) VFRs are not for cowtrailing excursions. Then again I never have tried knobbys on mine.

    Many of those islands off the coast of Baja California are little more that rookeries and the birdshit is really thick. Great fishing but not on a day with an onshore blowing.

    The Garmin Tomtoms are beating a tattoo of impending doom. Damn, where was that WalMart again? That sale on frozen jo-jos ends this week.

    I'm not saying. You guys from OZ will come here, take all our jo-jos home and we won't have any. :)

    Heres a clue. They are an Irish invention but unlike haggis thank God.
