BMW Tigard. Friday night was my first presentation back home. Was amazing to have a full house .....



So much to share and talk about that I did not really get whole trip out, but still was a fun evening! Will learn, adapt, improve and share in new ways in the future!

Thanks to all the ADV riders who attended, drove long distances Like IdahoSam, Bug Sister, Steep and Rocky, and an old college roommate Tom, that I had not seen in 17 years or so! Was really great to be among friends, and fellow Moto riders as I shared more than a few stories!

Busy week getting revised materials and then riding up to Seattle for presentation on Thursday Night at Ride West BMW !

Mark, great job on the presentation last friday night. The first go round on a new presentation can be tough, I'm guessing after you get couple more under your belt, you be able to cover your whole journey. I can't imagine how hard it is to get almost three years of adventure covered in a 2 hour presentation.

Sign me up for the book/movie/mini-series. .

Radioman at the Friday night presentation.



At lunch the next day.



And some of Radioman's admirers.


It was suggested we do a Radioman jump but we were full of pizza, coffee and water.

And one here in SoCal - both Ventura BMW and Brown Motor Works would go for this as they have sponsored these types of talks before.

So, amongst all this hype Mark, and congrats on getting home and being able to share your experiences, but the important question needs to be asked...........

Did the Rockford Basket Press make it to the US in one piece??

Any Video?

Hello Mark, - Did you or someone make a video of your presentation?

If so, can it be posted?

If not, glad you are well and God bless you for the inspiration you have given with all of your RRs.

Do you have a schedule of future presentations?

All the best,

Matthew
