Im happy to say we had a great ride with photos and details to follow as we (David) gets through the processing.

Stay tuned......

LDF, it is really wonderful to hear that your September ride was a success
I kept my fingers crossed for you!

Hopefully David will find some time to start the report, so that we will have a great time here in the warm cosy armchair, while you were out there fighting the elements.
Ciao Gero

Have you ever considered re-locating?

Doc and Francine...you guys spend what appears to be all your "off time" running around the western states, mountains and the like. Have you ever given much thought to moving out that way so you could pursue your "passion for the backroads of the US" even more?

Oh, regarding helmets. Styrofoam degrades. I toss helmets after two years, regardless. Drop 'em once, they are compromised.

I figure it's cheap insurance. Super glad LDF is o.k. SWMBO just dropped her Triumph after some utter fool in AR did a left in front of her. The new Aerostich and Arai helmet took a beating, but she walked away from it. A little sore, but alive.

And that is what counts counts. O.k. to ride another day.

You're so kind, that is great!!

Life has us a bit busy but hope to be up and running soon.

I know that winter is upon us but I really miss my motor bike. I still 'got the bug' in spite of it all and am really excited about THAT. Some folks think Im crazy, but they dont know what they're missing.... exploring on two wheels.
