Gerbing’s Temperature Install


Just like what we had on our BMW 650’s Cheryl installed her permanent temperature controller today.  Instead of installing the built-in port she decided to go with the plug just hanging outside the faring as you will see in the pictures. 

Centre fairing had to come off

Cheryl has done this two times before tonight…most would cringe drilling a hole into the plastic but it really looks neat and tidy in the end…when we sell the bikes this comes with it… 😉 Continue reading “Gerbing’s Temperature Install”

Faroe Islands Population: 49,483 – Our Country of the day


 

 Background
The population of the Faroe Islands is largely descended from Viking settlers who arrived in the 9th century. The islands have been connected politically to Denmark since the 14th century. A high degree of self government was granted the Faroese in 1948, who have autonomy over most internal affairs while Denmark is responsible for justice, defense, and foreign affairs. The Faroe Islands are not part of the European Union. Continue reading “Faroe Islands Population: 49,483 – Our Country of the day”

Contour Camera Reviews!


The new Contour +2 versus Contour +1, Contour GPS and Contour Roam.  We own the Contour +1, has a jack for an external mic which works well except all the cables we have for the mic. 

You have to wire yourself.  Our camera is not waterproof but water resistant.  The new +2 apparently is like the Roam with waterproofing built in as well as the external mic jack.  Oiy…these cameras keep coming out even trying to out do themselves.

Graduated my BC Transplant Training Period


Some might remember back in January of this year Leslie switched careers.  She went from being an Intensive Care Social Worker for 13 years at a Vancouver Hospital to an Organ Donation Specialist/In Hospital Organ Donation Coordinator.  UPDATE:

After being in training with a preceptor since mid March I have officially graduated and was signed off on Tuesday at BC Transplant as an independent practitioner with a mentor. This seriously has been and still is one of the hardest things I have done career wise. Learning critical care medicine in practice is a whole other ball of wax versus being a social worker and knowing medicine in layman’s terms.

I will always be in training as there is still so much to learn and do in my two roles but to be honest in the beginning I could not see the light at the end of the tunnel.  It’s my first week  on call by myself technically speaking but will always have back up.  That is how we do it at BC Transplant.  You should never feel alone while doing call and I don’t.  Here’s to continue success and a long healthy career with organ donation.  

Customizing Cheryl’s F800GS


Recycled some old farkles from our BMW 650’s to the new 2013 F800GS…Cheryl’s bike is taking form…waiting still for hand guards from Barkbusters, getting Rox Risers Low pro for both bikes….they are on order…and still wondering which crash bars we will both get.  TBD…researching the new and improved bars coming out for the new fairing.  Jesse Luggage mounts went on just fine and we are both glad to be able to keep the luggage that we started all this ADV riding stuff with.

We are also waiting on Cee Bailey to update their shield for this bike!

Still have to install the permanent Gerbings temperature controller….

Befriended, why?


we, as in Cheryl and myself are sort of going through the same thing just religion has not been brought into the picture. Just that someone close does not believe Cheryl and I should get married…they are “against” it. That hurts but opinions are opinions.

Straight Man Perspective

My younger brother is gay. Gay as laughter. Gay as the day is long. One of the finest moments in my life, and one of the greatest compliments anyone has ever paid me, was the day he felt safe to come out to me. He’s in his mid-30s now, but he’ll always be my little brother. And man, I love that kid. He’s brilliant, he’s funny, and he’s kind. And he just married a phenomenal man.

I was always predisposed to like his husband because, y’know, he’s my brother’s partner and therefore has automatic status in my heart. The wonderful bonus is that I really like him. He’s brilliant, he’s funny, and he’s kind. He’s a cool dude to hang out with. He also stood by my brother like a rock when my brother had a life-threatening cancer that cost him his left eye.

They married in May. It was…
