To those who asked for a link to see some shots of my trip to Argentina, here ya go:

The Andes
http://picasaweb.google.com/teeyee1/...eat=directlink

The Penguins
http://picasaweb.google.com/teeyee1/...eat=directlink


There are a LOT of motorbikes in Buenos Aires, most of which were 125 to 250cc. We did see some KTM 950Adv and GS1200s on Rt 7, which goes over the Andes into Chile . . .

It never happened. Why do you lie like that Joel? The only thing not photoshopped into that FAKE foto is the stuff on the bottom of my ALLEGED Dakar there. That brown stuff is called mud. I aimed for the puddles and I hit them going like 50 and with the power on. Unlike you guys with the big gs's afraid of getting them dirty, you all were going so slow I was wondering if you were afraid of getting wind on them.

I was ALMOST keeping up with the 990's but they really are ill-mannered beasts like their owners. They would fling serious rocks if you got too close.

All I know is that if that FAKE photo was to be believed, which is isn't because it never happened, the only explanation is that the Dakar was just really tired and needed a rest.

Or was it the 8 hours of riding that made it so good.

Since DDennis joined our dualsport ride on his Ninja 250, this video seems somehow appropriate:

I had a great time. Looks like I'll be buying some riding gear. I hope I can keep both bikes. Anyone want to buy a house in Malibu?
THANKS FOR POSTING ALL THE AWESOME PHOTOS!

WTF? That was slow!? I was going WOT _A_LOT_ and was not even close catching you. I shudder to think what you'll be like when you start standing on the pegs and trying to go fast.
