Seattle to TDF and back on an airhead
Well, this RR is coming a bit late as I'm already in Costa Rica as I write this, but here it goes anyway. I'm loosely traveling with 6 other guys. We split up and rejoin constantly. 4 of us are from Seattle, one's French but living in Canada, one's German, one's British. 3 of us are riding airhead GSs, 2 of us are on DR650s and the two Euros are riding XT600s. This first post will be pic heavy / text light as there's no way I can catch up on all the minor stories thus far. Enjoy the ride. Here we go.





...More coming shortly

Sweet pics! Looks like a great ride so far. Looking forward to more updates. I think I admired your bike at Ride West once. I got a thing for big, round headlights :evil.

I'm jealous AW. Will be watching.

heck yeah!

Okay, you gotta tell the story of why that red-headed guy was getting his hands bandaged. Oh, and why you were shooting a rifle with bayonet in a motorcycle jacket.

where was this picture taken?

and where's the river crossing? I'm assuming they're related

um...I think that about does it. If you need any help from the states drop me a PM. I'm 6 miles from Boxerworks and I can probably get you anything you need. If he doesn't have it I can pull it off my bike. Good luck!

Damn Wrangler, no words necessary--those photos say it all. Amazing! This one sure looks a lot like the Eastern Washington.
