Those photos don’t do justice to the steepness of that dune. I was there, it was steep.

Hey SV, good luck on the trip. Please keep those of us chained to our desks well informed of your adventures.

Hey Striking,

I'm still in Buenos Aires (easy place to get stuck in). I couldn't ship my bike directly from here to Vlad. either. It's on a slow boat to Japan (should have flown it though) and will be there in two weeks or so. I have all the info. for taking the ferry from Japan to Vlad. if you want.

I should be in Russia a week or so before you, but we should meet up somewhere. I really want to see that big nomad festival in Mongolia which means being there by July 10 and it's a LONG way from Vlad.. I know a guy who lives in Ulan Bataar who is meeting me at the Mongolian border on his R-100 GS.

Hope to see you there comradski

Pete

If I don't see you in Vlad. How a

Judo Lessons

So we traded lessons alright. I was out riding near Palm Springs and I called Glen. He said come on by, it was a throwing class. Not the best for my first time but since I knew how to ride a motorcycle, I'd be OK.

And then he had me pair up with a 110 pound girl who had me on the mat quicker than Flug checking a SV post for pictures.
It was like overload and I am anxious to go and learn more.

Actually, the ways we treach are quite similar and he is exactily right about the practice part. I actually practice stuff that is way harder than I'll ever encounter in the regular world so it seems easy when I get to it. And my level goes up quite a bit. What I considered hard a few years ago is way easier that it used to be.

Heather doesn't like me practicing all that Judo stuff on her all the time though.
