I just got back from this. REI did a fine job presenting the options for gear. Quite a few ADV stickers on bikes in the parking lot too.

Talking Reload this Page Motorcycle travel and camping clinic April 4th at REI in Atlanta...

Thanks for the compliment Chunt. We truly enjoyed giving it and appreciate everyone's feedback. The next one will be even better! While I work at REI, I am not their spokesperson, per se. Sure REI is a heavy shade of green - someone needs to be. I'll bet we're all old enough to know that the world is neither black or white - it's a matter of balance. I love the silence on top of Max Patch or Blood Mountain on a late spring morning as the sun rises. And I've spent years on road courses racing and at engineering school harmonizing to a V-12 on the dyno.

I do know the folks at corporate REI are some of the most approachable leaders you'll find. Help them work the balance and we all win.
