hey SV, as you say, practice, practice , practice. The slow speed skills are the ones that help at higher speeds, stand up ,keep your feet on the pegs and momentum. Being able to slow down , keep your balance and choose the best line are skills everybody needs and most dont have. Figures of eight and tight circles in 1st and 2nd gear can be done anywhere, it always gets people watching...

I understand your dilemma re posting TMI , and trying to sell a book. The idea you have of a pictorial book is imho, the right one. Obviously you will need to chronicle the problems and solutions, way points and local customs, especially the women (jo momma rules will be good in a coffeee table book) that hint of exotica.... and of course the riding. You have been doing it long enough to know what is needed, and from what i have seen you rock.

perhaps you could sell subscriptions to the book as you travel, so that when you finish ,some of the funding is in place. Have you tried American express for sponsorship.? You know the saying.. dont leave home without it

Godspeed, good luck, keep it upright. Vege.
