Im done, but BigWan will be taking over with some kind of gear wrap up.

Thanks for reading, everyone!
Sorry it dragged on for so long...
Now, go RIDE!

It was a fantastic trip and a really great ride report to go with it. I'm glad you stuck with it and didn't leave it unfinished. It takes a lot of effort to do a good ride report and a huge effort to do one for a trip this size. Thanks for making the effort. Looking forward to the gear report too.

So where are you going next year? You guys keep one upping your trips, so I'm guessing South America and TDF or Alaska, or are you guys gonna go all out and go around the world?





















Just kidding, we'll give you a few months to think about it.

Matt,

Thank you for taking us on your journey. Reading about and seeing where you two went really impressed the daylights out of me. Now I have no reason to whine, moan or complain about ANY kind of terrain I hit. You covered it all two up and fully loaded!

How long have you been riding? What's your bike resume? Please don't say you just started riding 3 years ago on the 950...

Little Wan and Big Wan you two are the best. Big Wan thanks for driving the school bus but yet stopping and letting Little Wan get the pictures she did to share with the rest of us.

Little Wan, this Ride Report is the best ! ! ! Thank you to taking the time to do it making the effort to find all the fun clips. You went above and beyond and it is greatly appreciated.

From now on every time I see a chimpmunk I'm going to think of this picture. What a great shot, I love it.


Make the Wans and furry critters your favorite.

So to see it end, and looking forward to the next one for sure.

Thanks to both Wans for taking us on such a wonderful adventure and all the time effort and sanity it took to complete it.


The links and humor definitely made this RR your own very personal, and sets it apart from the rest with such flair.


I don't know what I'm going to procrastinate my homework with anymore

Q~
My lust for the 950 was fueled by your last adventure, and this one might have been the straw that broke my back. (or the Camel's). We'll find out next week when I ride my 950 for the first time!

Thanks so much Wans big and little! A truly great report, entertaining on so many levels.

Cheers!
Greg

Thanks to you both...

Thanks guys, great RR and the pics have been wonderful. What are we all going to do now that it's over? There must be some crap shows on the DVR I haven't watched yet... So the big question is, when does the next trip start???

+1 Everyday when I came home from work I was in dire need of comic relief and you were it my number one choice for the evening.

I thank you immensely for the dedication and tireless dedication to put this together!!! You are one funny gal. Guess we'll see you again next year.
