Hi Roland,

Still reading your reports. I am now in Boise ID instead of Gilbert AZ.

Just realized I missed these awesome shots of Teluride & Black bear pass.













































One more bonus shot & I cannot remember where exactly this was but it is gorgeous isn't it?

Hi Mike, good to hear from you.
So hey by the way, I am now planning to attend both ADV rallies in Colorado this summer. Wkend's of July 19-22 & 26-29.

I'll be there with the Strom, "Suzi". She's in Phoenix right now.

Hope to see you & a lot of other ADV friends there.

Nice to read those reports again.
Can't believe the Strom made it down Black Bear Pass.
We are heading back out to Colorado this summer July 21, might even see you at the 2012 WestFest
When: July 27-29
Where: The M Lazy C Ranch, Lake George, CO.
If that is the rally you are going to?

Hey Flea, great you're going. Yes I'll be there & RMR. Trading off going to Alaska.
I'll be riding Suzi home after this. Take some time off riding the world.
Time for family, catch up with friends, local rides & deal with ongoing heart issues.
See you out there

I just read your RR all the way through. As I did, my admiration for your photography, your story, your spirit in overcoming personal obstacles, grew, and after reading this post for your courage as well. I've been to some of the same places, seen some of the same things, but my overall effort pales by comparison. I recently purchased a "Wee" Strom as my Fly and Ride machine from an inmate, and a garage in Phoenix to keep it in. I hope to be able to get down from Calgary and ride it a bit. Thanks for the inspiration.

Wishing you well with your "repairs." Mend well!

Aah good luck Calbertan! Phoenix is a great hub.
Thanks so much for the compliments, so glad you enjoyed the report.
Very much appreciate your comments.
Badly need to get caught up with the report, this type of feed back is a great motivator.

Let me know when you're coming mate. Some of my buds who made that ride with me were talking about doing it again soon. Me, I'm playing it pretty cool with the off-roading after a crash, (on pavement), last July near Santa Fe.

Cool2

Hey just discovered one of my pics made it onto the current ADVrider home page:
http://baldy.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/The-current-ADVrider-home-page/1010498_SwD92S#!i=2379208558&k=qzhNtTm

Cool!!!


Got me thinking maybe it's time for an update, if there is still some interest?

I've got lots more amazing pictures.

Please reply if you would like me to post up the subsequent adventure report???
