Mr Cool

Nathan ,

You are the coolest one of the bunch and I bet the "power ranger" guy you're next to has not been through all those "Stan" countries or the Himalayas on his bike.

I just saw that Nathan is on a big metal bird heading back to his beloved Dot in Seattle. Planning on bringing her home. Go the Postman!

Hey guys, a while since I last checked in.

Felt I just needed to update the blog report with a few more pics of the America trip as I never got round to it last year. I've not started a new ride report for it as I don't think I'll have the time to narrate, more a case of upload some pics. So here goes, starting in New York on what was a 6000 mile ride, in six weeks, from NY across to San Francisco and then up to Seattle. Same bike as Sydney to London. Still going strong, kind of... though currently having a new piston fitted.

New York, landing early August...

Good to hear from you Nate! Great shots there of NYC! Excellent!
Hope you have some free time to fill in the blanks on your USA crossing ... maybe even an update on your current status?

You'll be glad to know your book has been passed around to two fellow riders, both enjoyed the read.

Are you back in the UK now? Future plans?

Stay well ... (do me a favor! buy some BOOTS! )

Well Enduro, I came back to Seattle the other day to pick the old girl up and take her home to England for her retirement. But I've had her rebored instead, and the back wheel rebuilt by the Wizard Master out here in Seattle. And well, I thought I'd post pictures up to speed just in case with the four weeks of free time I have in the States I decide to do some riding. Not decided on that yet. I mean, what direction? East, North, South or....
