Hey, Baja Ho! I remember. That was a good day in La Paz. Yes, the XR continues to amaze me at what it can do, but I still baby it for fear of tearing it apart. After the last couple of trips I guess I should relax and just let 'er rip. How's your summer been? I'm gonna look and see if you have posted any ride reports lately ....

Thanks for reading!!

Hiya Heidi!!



Ok, I had to split first thing on our last morning. I have this problem, I ride too fast...so I usually ride alone.




Nixels little friend was prowling around as I got packed up. It was hilarious watching this cat chase Nicky around, it must have known he's allergic.




Perfect place to hang out with frien...freaks.




I made 300 miles in 5 hours, riding some of my favorite roads. It was quite a trip home..road construction where I'd ride the ditch to get to the front of the line, saw a nasty fatal..truck crossed the center line and obliterated something in it's path. Always an adventure...




Until the next one, TAT west from Utah in a few weeks.





Edit:

Lyrics used are by Angels and Airwaves, song is Young London.

You know, I think Rob likes to cultivate a miscreant persona. He's really a generous guy, a great tour guide, and keeps you laughing. He put up with my 53 mph highway pace for as long as he could stand it.
Hey I like going that speed, you actually get to see stuff!

(finally I found someone slower than me muaaahhhh)

Maybe check the RR's for the Real Romper Room

You'd have to ask LittleWan what we're playing.

Hi Guys
We're playing "Do Bees" and "Don't Bees"

Look what I found! I posted the original over at the summer of stupid, but it really belongs here, where it can be fully appreciated...




Shocking, isn't it?
And it gets worse...
