As you have made clear, Doug thinks quite a bit more than many inmates on ADV.

Doug,

It was good to meet you and Polly at the Detroit show.

What everyone else has said is true, 1/2 hour is not enough time for your talk.

Doug, also a pleasure to meet you and Polly at the Detroit show. Not enough time allocated, should've given you at least 1 hr. Hope the best in all your travels!

Great pic Glen!
Was awesome to finally meet you in LA. One day we'll have to hang out more.
Maybe even take a ride! I'm sure I could get us in all kinds of trouble, and you could get us out of it!

When are you coming back to Europe?

Thanks! Doug

After riding across Siberia, I decided that to do this once, one must be morbidly curious, but to do it twice, one must be pathetically masochistic. You have rode that stretch several times so I can only imagine your mental state and what kind of mischief you'd drag me into. Couldn't we just chill out in some Mazatlan tittie bar and call it an adventure?

hi Doug !

got your Letter yesterday, so the post seems to work OK round here. Many thanks.
Please send 3 Ts (2xxl, one xl) and PM me the pay info.

Otherwise we are fine round here, just reassembling the MZ, as" riding season" has started.

Great Talk

Doug,

Nice to have met you today at the DC Motorcycle show, I was the guy in the blue BMW t-shirt. It was neat to finally meet a celebrity ADVrider inmate!

Really enjoyed your talk...but next year they need to give you at least a two hour time slot on stage. Best of luck on your upcoming Cannonball Run this summer, I'll be tuning in for that ride report as well.

Regards,

Dave
