small world indeed and yes, the Hanson's have quite the Lodge up on the sunshine coast that turned our wedding into an incredible west coast feel for my family from New York and back east as well as Cheryl's. Even our local friends got to experience a top notch venue. Small world indeed.

Thumb Greetings from India !

Ola Leslie,

This is my first ever post on ADVrider, I was randomly reading up forums to get more real life/time information on The Tiger 800 XC and landed on this thread, picking up the 800-XC here one in India soon. Apart from your detailed info the the bike and gear, I half way through got more hooked to your way of presenting the entire experience in the RR, although I have very less (only reading) geographical info on the places you rode through, it was as if I was there, supremely presented/written/put together, also lovely pics and videos to go with. cheers and Kudos .

Finished the entire read in 2 days

Sorry about life on the personal front, as it always goes, shit happens (there will be better and shinier things to look ahead) !

P.S: Now reading your Solo trip across US and Canada, just started.

Warm Regards,
Deepak.

This thread has been dormant a while, but I'm interested in seeing what the two of you (or one of you) have been up to? Any new adventures?
