Boxed Packed and off to SE Asia...

Took the Trek Boone7 into my LBS the other day to get it properly packed for the journey to Colombo, Sri Lanka . You can get lots and lots of extra goodies in the bike box along with the bike. Bike box can not exceed 70lbs ..Coffee, bike gear, spare tires, pump, helmet, shoes, clothing and there is still room..

Well the time has come and in less then 6 hours wife and I headed off to hot and humid Colombo, Sri Lanka. Bike has been ready for 2 months and already have a other bike there awaiting me. Snagged a GoPro Camera and as soon as i can figure out how to post some video here I will. Everyone have a HAPPY HEALTHY 2015
