I took a down payment on the old girl today.  I'll be sad to see her go.  I 
wasn't getting any bites at all and I parked her and the Triumph on the 
front lawn.  I'll have to call 3 prospective buyers now and tell then 
they're SOL.
Next week I'll try to get a list of parts and accesories for sale.
I took the V Strom out for a 300 km run through dueling banjo country 
yesterday.  Some of the back roads are pretty trecherous with a heavy film 
of sand on the asphalt.  It was a nice easy cruise following the Madawaska 
River from near its junction with the Ottawa to the point it flows out of 
Kamaniskeg Lake at Combermere.  I went to my wife's brother Graham's 4000 sq 
ft summer home on the river.  There was no one there so I stripped to my 
shorts sat on his deck in the sun and enjoyed the lunch I'd packed along.
On the way home I stopped at a log chute that has been rebuilt on a normally 
small stream.  This was a method of moving logs around some difficult river 
section in this case a jumble of boulders.  I had never been there with the 
spring run-off at its peak.  There is normally a little trick of water 
coming down the chute and the same through the rocks.  Now the rock area is 
a set of raging rapids and the water flow in the chute is 4 feet wide and 3 
feet deep and shooting at least 15 feet out into the air before it hits the 
pond 6 feet below.
