That looks to have an overhead A.C. unit. That is different than mine.
Got it today. Forgot to take close up pics.

Just saw this!
Way to go Big Bob.
You're now a member of the much unheralded "Adventure rider with a toilet and bed" club.

It's exclusive, and admittedly maligned. But worth every second of temperature controlled sleep. Lol

Not to mention a comfortable way to spend a day in the cold wet weather of Romney.

I think of it as extending my ability to play into the later chapters of life.

Congrats!

Yup. Even more exclusive we are members of the 17rp club!

I was thinking we could park next to each other at Romney one backed in one driven in so the awnings almost meet.  Plenty of shade/rain protection and I want to be next to all the daily stories, oops, the real truth from the people who can really ride.

So when you say that was a hill, I can see Steve’s pictures of you sliding down it.

And my sleep will not be temp controlled (not air conditioned) as I am not taking my very loud generator.  Would not do that to people I like. 

Now this fall with Patrick I am not sure he needs to sleep.

Haven't needed cold air in Romney recently. Blankets and propane more likely.

Great idea of combined porch!

I sent all 3 of my Yamaha generators to Puerto Rico.
Replaced them with one big 3000EB Yamaha. Barely louder than a 2000

Need it for coffee brewing. ;)

something the wife and I have been talking about is the Toy Hauler thing. We just got back from a house we rented for 6 weeks just north of Yuma and it wasn’t the best spot for motorcycling as we had the Colorado river on the west, Yuma Proving Grounds to the east and a 30 mile wash to the north and 50 minutes to Yuma for groceries. So we figure if we do the toy hauler we can see more of the country and get up and move if we don’t like it.

It's an awesome lifestyle when circumstances allow for lengthy travels. The versatility is addicting.

Read the chock manual. WTF precautions

Use for motorcycle tires only. Do not use for aircraft purposes.   My driveway is only 4 car lengths. Hope nobody tries to land.

Do not ride motorcycle onto stand.
Crap it is way uphill on my driveway!!

Do not sit on the motorcycle while it is loaded on the stand.
I rode it there when do I jump off?

Just stand on the pegs.  You're allowed to stay indefinitely in that position.

The floor structures in those things are not incredibly stout. Combine the inertia of a moving 900 pound full dress Harley plus a rider and I'm sure it could break out a stand.


As for the airplane, I guess they mean something like this?

What a horrible airplane design.  Who wants to fly something when you can't see anything to the left or right?

Harbor Freight = 1 bike.

http://www.boltiton.com/ = multiple bikes

Romney requires at least 2 bikes. Harrison's fault.

I want to see your setup.  This was cheap and seems good quality for what it is.

Need something else when I want the Indian too.

If the wife goes then only need the indian.
