Time of reflection as I am headed to South America. Thinking about my past life with Chris, and onto this new chapter. Lots of new experiences ahead!

Plan to get to Tucson Saturday to see my Brother, and will be meeting up with IdahoSam for a time riding into Mexico, copper Canyon first then exploring as we go south. Looking forward to slowing down over the next month!

Foods on the table! More later!

Woohoo & were off again.

Hello friends of RadioMan,

I'm having trouble loading pics so I'll try a post without any. The Star of the Show made it to Sac safe and sound. Right about now he's probably south of Big Sur heading to spend the night at a friend in Paso Robles. He's on his way !!!

Here's "TripleScoop" getting the first ride EVER on the mighty 800






I don't want to step on his report but here's a clue on how we spent the morning. Mark, I have a great picture of you spreading the ADV gospel if the ones on your camera don't turn out



Before we headed out, we stopped in A&S Powersports because RadioMan wanted to learn how to adjust the tension in his clutch lever. Great service !!!! Here's the Manager of the Service Department giving him the "how to"



I was able to give him a send off through Old Sac, then down hwy 160. We stopped in Locke and parted ways, he headed down the river towards a friend in Oakland and headed east into the foothills. Right now he's probably south of Big Sur, heading to a friends in Paso Robles.

Was absolutely great hanging out with you, looking forward to the next time. You've got a lot of friends here now !!

Well Mark looks you've had an exciting start, but than Karma follows you on a regular basis.
