I like that pic of you and your new ride. As you know, I have been on the road for a bit too. Had a bit of an eye-opener outside of Bella Coola with Mr. Griz, so be careful with your camping. I am going to attempt a stealth visit for Sturgis North, outside of Vernon. I will let you know what kind of reception non- Hog riders get. Keep in touch, and perhaps when you have done your Northern loop I will have found a good Spanish language immersion skool.... Vaya con Dios mi amigo..
