Doug,

Why dont you have your media manager post up a vid or two from the highlights of your presentation. Let those of us who are travel challenged just now see what the excitement is all about.

I met alot of folks from on here at the last 2 shows, but I think Long Beach will be a madhouse. I'm going to redo my presentation, if I have time this week, to make it more fun & interesting (at least I hope it works out to be)

Poly & I will get to LA thursday, & since she hasnt been there before, I figure we'll rent a car for a day so she can see hollyweird & all that stuff.

I couldn't agree more! I went to several of the presentations, the Yamaha Champion school guys were really good, but in the end you were clearly Best of Show!

There's lots of bike racing champions, but hardly anyone has done the kind of riding you do on the kind of bike you ride!

I finally got to meet the legend that is "Doug" today.

Doug is the TALLEST guy I've ever met.......

I thoroughly enjoyed his lecture up until he was explaining why he was taken in by the Iraquie cops for taking photos and then he was told by staff that he was running over his time. I really wanted to see the famous toilet paper turban that the cops found in his camera......We all wanted more........Doug, it was a my pleasure to meet you,,,,,,Keep on riding !

It was great meeting you, Doug. And, you talk was great, like you RR's. They should give you another hour to speak!!!

I see Polly couldn't join you for lunch. Someone had to man the booth, eh? At least she was reading an excellent book! Cool seeing Glen there, too.

It was a pleasure meeting you today. The presentation was great even though it was cut short. I look forward to hearing the rest of the story someday.

Cheers,
Ross

Great to meet you and Polly today!

It was pretty bogus that the IMS staffer told you to wrap it up so Ewan and Charlie could take the stage...

Thanks

Doug for the presentation, wish it was a few hours. We could've listened and looked at the pics all day if we had smoke breaks





Honor and pleasure to meet you, best of luck with all your future adventures. We will be following along in cyberspace.



Enjoy the sticker, the boys and gals of BWDR will get a kick out of spotting it someday

Doug,
It was great to meet one of my heros in person. It's really too bad that the girls get a half hour inane questions while the guys that have something to say get cut off before they get a good start. Be careful on the Cannonball.
