jeez, 24 hours after I started this, and 7k views, over 100 comments.

thanks guys, makes me feel good.

Y'all must REALLY be bored!

My town in Bama got spared, but it tore up shit all around me. I'm sorta in a valley, so alot of times the storms split before they get to me, altho I had a close call a couple years ago, tornado comin right at me, & turned about 100 yards from the house. I was outside watchin it, because I always gotta see whats going on. yes, Im an idiot. skeered the shit outta me, for sure!

Anyhow, Im hopin the bike arrives tomorrow, Im ready to get on the road!

Doug

Glad to hear your town in ALAbama was alright, the areas surrounding were not as lucky. Hope you get on the road soon, my days at the office are going slowly without your updates!

Not familiar with 03 Sportsters; is it an 883 or 1200? If it's an 883, then yes you can do it and you're crazy or if it's a 1200 then yes you can do it and you're crazy! Either way I think it's AWESOME and I'm envious as hell you're doing it. Best of luck and looking forward to the rr.

Heck Doug,
If Rob can drive that dresser Harley at the tip of South America, http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...arley+Davidson,
you should be able to motorcross a set up sportster. ;=-) I'm sure you read his report that stopped at the end of South America.

Your reputation precedes you...

Have a safe ride and give us all the details, I see you're packing a fender, you're getting old man...
