Best way to see Bald Eagles can be as simple as coming to BC, bring binoculars and watch….cheap…this is a video some local cable company made of our trip to see the bald eagle phenomenon that happens every fall/early winter here near our house.  Have a look…I made the cut.  I am the one in […]

HEIDENAU K60 SCOUT TIRES | MC TESTED


Funny we have been using these tires since 2010 and surprised this reviewer just heard of them.  We get tons of mileage out of them and I would disagree on one thing.  Not a 50/50 tire, more like 60/40. ;-) We have them on our bike 24/7, 365 days a year. Have them on our […]
