John,

It just wasn't the same without you there. Even though your streak has ended you'll have to come next year. We're thinking Arkansas in the fall.

While you're healing, I've got a good movie to recommend:

All caught up now with your RR. I thought you were having bad luck when I read about your bike breaking down. Then I read about your injury and the bike problem seemed nothing compared to that. Glad that you had proper medical care the first time around as it is a lot worst the second time around. Take care and keep your spirits up!

Later
John

heal up soon

Heel up soon, I feel like a junkie who lost his supplier......you are having a hell of life and I am loving the reports.


I met you several years back at the Crane mo rally, Pilot & I followed you and big John in the rain on our airheads through that downpour to the dealership. how long before you can start putting around a bit?

He's the man of Steel. You'll know how its feeling when he starts talking about going back down south. His leg will start itching and when he scratches it raw and it's bleeding he'll be gone again. I've got money on it.

John, I had a dream on Friday night and you were in it. So thought I'd check in here to see what you're up to. Last time I looked was after you'd posted about Angel Falls, so I was sad to see about the end of that segment of your trip.

Hope you are healing well and making big plans for your return for the next segment. Cheers and Happy New Year!

That's too funny I was just getting ready to start back up on this last night. It's coming I promise...

Reading about all the riders down in SA has gotten me pumped up to write this all down, besides it keeps me from spending money when I'm setting in front of the computer working on the RR

Sure you will... the longer you wait to finish this RR the the more embellished the stories will become. Anybody can fall off a motorcycle, even you proved that. Hurry up make some money heal up and get back down there.

Hell the more I think about it, the older I'm getting and you have to finish this in my life time.
