Sounds like you two are doing a bang up job of spreading the word!
Lisa will be inspiring more girls to get out and have a go in the Big World.

Im up in nor cal,Im thinking the Bay Area is as close as you will get to here?

Be neat to meet the both of you again and marvel at the new presentation.

Question Love for the mid west?

Bummer I used to live in CA but now reside in the midwest (Minnesota) so I missed all your west coast presentations. Do you have any plans to come out to the midwest and do a slide show?

My early apologies if you've answered this already. I haven't been on following the thread in quite a while.

Cheers!

I 100% agree!

I'm located in Fargo, ND - nearest BMW dealership in Monticello, MN - I'd be up for a 3hr ride (each way) to come and drool over your images and stories! Midwest isn't all that bad...except riding through ND. Or, in your case, cut down through Canada on your way back from AK?

I will be there for sure. I was out of town when you were in Roseville last month. Not missing it this time! After talking with the folks in Modesto, it sounds like it should be a great turnout. Looking forward to it.

Was good meeting you two at the presentation last night! Food, beers, excellent photos and videos and recaps of your awws and your trials.

Ride safe, and keep us updated with your adventure going down to Mexico.

My biggest challenge in life at the moment is where to hang the photo I picked up. They have some beautiful shots, guys, pick one up!

Is there a link for online ordering? I actually want to get a couple for gifts for some of my adventuring buddies.

Lisa and Simon are great people to get to know. The stories of their travels coupled with the advice they are so willing to give the would be adventure traveler is priceless! Going to miss them both after they leave out of Vegas to head up to Seattle, but we will see each other again.

Simon and Lisa doing some prep before they continue their journey.

Simon explaining about using Lucus injector and cylinder lubricant and injector cleaner, and how it actually has improved the bike's range.

They will soon be in Seattle, so if you are in the area go meet them at Ride West BMW and South Sound BMW. If you have ever thought about adventure traveling, or just enjoy hearing about some good traveling adventures, these two are some of the best you will ever meet. Both are very welcoming and have over 10 years of worldly advice to pass on!

I look forward to seeing them soon again on the road!
