Dang, how time flies. Two years already? I was on my own motorcycle sabbatical around North America while you two where RTW-ing. I read your posts whenever I had internet connections and was dreaming about heading out on my own RTW. However, life choices are just that and the one I took was the right decision. Now, I'm content with heading out during the summer months for a couple weeks at a time.

Happy to hear the book is getting closer to being finished. Will be ordering a copy as soon as it comes out. Look forward to future posts and pictures whenever you post them. Wishing you two happy and safe travels.

Sfarson, inmate here, might be some help. Hope he doesn't mind me mentioning his name.

Yes, we're still dreaming! Not sure if it'll become a reality, I guess time will tell...

Merry X-Mas & Happy Holidays to everybody!!!

Margus & Kariina
Congratulations to Kariina on the new bike! It's a great feeling

Your photos are stunning, and while I can understand your attachment to film photography, looking at the results I'm quite certain you would produce magic regardless of the camera type. I'm gonna steal that winter photo and look at it when I need to rest my mind

Happy new year to you both, and how wonderful to have another instalment of your photos and writing. Congratulations to Kariina on passing her test and getting a bike, and good luck with the book production, I will most definitely be taking a copy of that when it's available.

All the very, very best for the year ahead.

It is with great respect and admiration that my wife and I enjoyed your voyage! Linda completed her MSF course just this past summer, though she still prefers the ride from the pillion....
WOW! Your photography was especially spectacular! Thank you for sharing your photos and experiences with us.
Thanks to your permission, I proudly use your quotation on my sig line: "Destination is final whereas the travel in itself is not." This is why I love to ride!

Best Regards,
Jon and Linda

P.S.- We have a couple of humble RR's around here somewhere. Though not nearly as epic, we enjoy the times we do get out....
