Double Big Dummy Tour



We went on a short tour this weekend to show some new Korean Bike Friday friends what the Canadian Rockies were like. Our posse was made up of 2 Big Dummies, 2 Bike Fridays and 1 LHT.

We had lots of fun and the Big Dummies attracted loads of attention. Definitely don't buy one if you don't like talking to folks about your bike!....

We got some funny looks from roadies when they passed our Dummies and saw them stuffed with Coronas and ice....LMAO...our motto was "...fully loaded - that's how we roll..."....

I've uploaded photos to Flickr.

For the same weight as Corona, you could have taken some beer instead.

Awesome shots, looks like you guys had a killer time. I went the Burly dlite route and although it is loaded up with a baby and his extensive gear instead of Corona, it is still a good time.
