You gave several hints of being in the military - living at Whidbee, using 24-hr time, day-before-month dates and so on. Thanks for your service. I'll bet your Dad was pleased to have you take up riding since he came to it earlier than you. A great picture of you two having lunch in the hotel bar. Good work!
Couldn't have said it better.
My son rides, i hope to do this with him one day, as soon as he gets of that stink'n Honda 600 pocket rocket and gets a proper bike !
