Glad to see I'm not the only guy on this site that rocks the tight jeans. They make you more intelligent by increasing blood flow to your brain, that's a fact.

I hope to have adventures like this for the rest of my life.

How did you by Super Cup C70 in US?

How did you by this motobike in US?. As I know Super Cub C70 only for asian market. In Vietnam for example, There was plenty of such kinds 20 years ago, but less and less now

Awesome stuff dude! I just spent 2 hours on this thread while I should have been working. I wouldn't say that time was wasted at all. I was inspired by your writing and fresh look at things.

Thanks a million

wow....I'm kinda' depressed this trip is over....finally :)....

Congrats to Rafael on a job well done.

And Gracias to Dr. Rock and Katie for hosting.....and trying to impart some wisdom to the boy.....one day, years from now, Rafael will have an epiphany, look around and say, "Oh, this is what she was telling me about!"

Thanks All.

It was a nice sunset for grilling:



Rafael said he was craving Ramen noodles, so we whipped up a quick order of ramen noodles, with grilled steak, and ribs and corn and pesto pasta...



and home-made strawberry ice cream, hold the ramen noodles.

I don't think he missed them.



A couple days later... all cleaned up, packed up, and ready to head home:



Great hosting you Rafael, congrats on the scholarship, I'm sure you'll put it to good use.

And how about that Dr! Dr. Rock rocks! He not only reached out and helped Raphael on his trip - he then sat on these awesome pics for months and months just waiting until the story got to NYC. Kudos to you Dr. Unbelievable.
And that's a pretty cool apartment, too.

Dr. Rock and LaDonnaFugata (Dave and Francine) are amazing people who are the hostessest with the mostest. They are super open, throw killer parties, and open their doors to a lot of ADVers. Look at their TentSpace post. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...&postcount=241

How are you alive?

But seriously, that sounds like an adventure and I'm jealous... I'm sure you'll find a C70 lying around somewhere. Just remember that the oil needs to be refilled almost everyday if your going long distance. That stuff evaporates faster than water. If you see smoke coming out of your oil pan its not water, its just the oil burning. Otherwise good luck and carry some tyre irons.

I just spent the last hour staring at these pictures. Thank you so much Rock, it meant the world to me. Because of you I always look homeless people in the eyes and try to help anyone that's traveling. You are honestly a great guy, you and your wife made an big impact on me. After little bit after college I'll try that Darian Gap thing you were talking about before.

I don't understand why more people don't, all that excess material just gets in the way and flaps around when your biking or riding....

You can find them in old garages. They were sold here in 1950s-1980s until they died out around 1983. My 1981 was the last carburated model in the US. They make a new model in 日本 though, you could try and get one of those shipped over.
