Thanx Glen....I will fire off an email when the time is closer. Probably show up in your neck of the woods around Oct 7ish. I hope it works out.

Dan has read the book, but I have to admit that I have not. However, I have read many other articles and posts on the Viking, and have always kept up to date with his thread and of course the girls on his web site.

Speaking of Dan, here he is (far left) ....two years ago with Dave, his brother-in-law that unfortunately cannot make this trip. There is Conchita with my old FJR before we got smart and bought the GS.

Oooopppsss....Conchita is going to be mad at you!!! She came up with that name!!

Yes!! That is why we are bringing her along!!
Conchita is Portuguese, but speaks fluent Spanish. Actually, she is in Portugal right now on the beautiful island of Madeira visiting her parents. She will be reading this thread from there.

Great biking roads in Madeira!!
