O wow! I’m sure you won’t get any orders from that overview (sarcasm).
I can feel my heart racing in anticipation of the read.

Hey SV what are you thinking now? Do you have any major concerns for your first few days out, bike prep. or route? Keep us posted and keep it between the ditches.

Best of luck to you, SV. We'll be anxiously waiting for your reports and, uh, ... pics.

A truck arrived today at the GUILTY store with a load of books. This was my first chance to see the finished product. Very interesting--a culmination of a life long dream. The publisher did a nice job. And thank you all for the support.

Ok, I orderd one too. But it was only to support you, and get another book. This thing might keep going. We buy books to support your travels and you keep writing them. It's perfect for a dreamer like me.

Readers will have to decide if the book is well written or not but I can assure you it is far from boring. Half the people on my website have never sat on a bike. If I can lure them into our world, that's half the game.

BTW-We are having a book signing this Thursday night at the Palm Springs Street Fair. If you live in the area, ride on over and say howdy. It will be at the Kickstand Bar and Grille on the corner of Palm Canyon Drive and Amado Road, seven to ten.

We had to do some serious machining to make the handlebars fit with heated grips and Acerbis handguards.
