We only had a weeks notice of me doing a meet-and-greet, which at the last moment included a short presentation. The two-hour show is better. See ya' next time amigo.

More than one million views

Out of an estimated 20,000 threads (40 per line x 500 pages) Yes i see that there are 733 pages, a bunch seem to have been moved.

There are currently only 11 Ride Report threads that can claim the additional fame of being members of the 1 million + views club.

Glen is way closer to his 3 millionth view than the 1 mark.
Doug is here twice...looks like your dirtster is a bit more popular than the panhead.
Clayton appears to engage his readers so much in his stories that they are to mesmerized to reply.

Would be great if the mods could let us know how many subscribers each of them have.

Thanks amigo. I am glad to hear you liked the book. OMDE is still selling now as well as when it first came out four years ago. As we continue to donate 100% of the royalties to international aid organizations building schools in the developing world, we appreciate when people write reviews for the book on Amazon. Review it here
There is a ton of positive energy and great karma associated with this project and I deeply appreciate all who have participated.

Thanks amigo. Remember, all royalties are donated to Room To Read, an NGO building schools in the developing world. There is a ton of positive energy behind this project that so many participated in here on advrider. Many thanks again to everyone here.

I am in Mazatlan for a few more weeks so any long riders passing through on your way north or south, I can offer a room for the night.

Generous offer! I'd offer to ride from Canada to Mazatlan just to hang out with you for a day, but then you'd get a restraining order and things would get all weird....unless you really want me to come!

Hey amigo--
I sold the bike a long time ago so I suppose this is a re-sale. If it is still in perfect running order, its' a great bike for the price.

Ok!

Glen:


Got the book yesterday, looked at the pix & said ,I remember those from Glens ADV RR. I've seen the nat geo film, remember

seeing the interview on 48 Hours after your release, & read the account on ADV

So I know the beginning, the middle, and the end but I flip the book open to page 1, next thing I know I look at my watch & it's 4

AM, both dogs are asleep in the chair, wife has gone to bed & I missed supper . DAMN IT!!!! Sucked in again.

Well, needless to say the book is mesmerizing and once started it can't be put down Love it

Thanks Glen.
Merry Christmas

I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the story amigo. Do you guys realize that this book was first published in 2004 and has been regularly selling ever since? TWTT sold in hardback so well that it did not go to softcover until 2010 when ECW Press bought the rights from Whitehorse for international re-release. I purposely don't keep track of the bookkeeping but two years ago, I recall seeing a stat revealing that the new version sold 3,500 copies the first quarter alone.

Same for my second book, One More Day Everywhere, it is still being reprinted twice a year after four years on the market. This is all the result of the power of positive thinking and telling the story not just about motorcycling, but primarily about the fascinating people of our planet.
