New book is great!

I am in the middle of reading your new book and what a treat it is! I find your attitude and views of the world refreshing and positive. Its too bad about the Greg Frasier thing. I have his book about riding to Alaska and am sorry I bought it. I should ask for my money back!
Maybe I will get to see you sometime if you have another show in the northeast US. I tried last time you came up but had some Dad and kids fun and had to miss ya. Again great job on the new book!

Did somebody mention WFO?

I just finished your new book and the ladies are asking where are the pics that go along with it?


It looks like the pics from '05 in this thread are gone...

Just another disgusting SV ride report

Not much new except riding up from Mexico to So Cal to snap some boring pics from a country and western concert. But this kind of stuff usually gets me in trouble. Anyone ready for trouble?

Hey amigo--don't know what happened when you returned to the desert but I never received a message from you. And yeah, Pat is a saint. Been pitching my nieces for a ride through Mexico too.

Hey Glen,

Sorry I missed you in Mazatlan a couple of months ago. Looks as though So Cal is treating you ok. My wife and I really enjoyed your second book. My ride is here if you have the time:

I want you to read about Belize!

Cheers

You must be a Filthy Pig then.

Some of these ole' cowgirls were pretty healthy











And as it turns out, they love to dance.









Then there's that uncontrollable affection for motorcycle riders that we had to crop.


Then as the tequila flowed...

Anyways I met this girl who likes motorcycles



And then she says she has a girlfriend who likes them too.



Then these girls overhear them and turns out they also like motorcycles.



And they had friends



Then comes the part about going for a ride



And don't forget share and share alike



Then the idea catches on.



But if I show where this all went after a few shots of tequila, I'd surely be banned.
