Its time to separate the real bikers from the wannabees again: The Polar Bear Ride
The rules are the same as they have been since I first posted them on this forum:
1) Participation in the CX500forum Polar Bear Ride is open to all registered CX500forum members.
2) Go for a ride of at least 1hr duration on either Dec. 31 2021 or Jan 1 2022 or both. (I usually head for somewhere that is at least a half hour from home, stop for a meal or to visit someone or something like that and then make sure I take more than half an hour to get back home).
3) Take one or more pics and post them in this thread.
4) Click the following link to Piper's Patches where you can order Polar Bear Run patches and year rockers (it looks like he has discontinued the pins) Piper's Patches Canadian eBay store Piper's Patches US eBay store
NOTE: In the event of a ban on unnecessary travel due to pandemic you can do the ride whenever the ban is lifted in your area.
Southern hemisphere note: Those of you in Australia might decide to call it the Thorny Devil Ride and those in South Africa perhaps the Springbok Ride but you would have to find your own sources of patches ;-)
Finally got Weather I could not refuse to go for a ride! Big Yah. To late for Polar bear ride but figured I would post my Picture of my destination anyway, Blacky Spit in South Surrey B.C. Also know as Crest beech.
Yeah ,Seat is pretty comfortable and is Stock ,but Wife for last christmas got me the Seat cushion, by Saddleman if me remember correct. Bobs right about the backrest,I added the pad above the stock trunk one , getting it at the right angle for my back made a big differance and had to install some backing plates inside the trunk. Do like to have a few differant riding positions available on longer rides.
