Hmmm, I got a few more of those, though most like theyll get removed by the mods, if ya know what I mean! I´ve been a very busy little boy!

I havent been taking pictures (well a few choice ones) bc Im scared of getting my camera taken from me in BA. Lots of snatch and gos going on around here, but dont worry, the RR will continue from LA when I attempt to get the bike out of customs!

Just a quick update for you guys. Ive been in Buenos Aires this whole time, hunting birds (both kinds) and really enjoying city life.

I head to LAX on Monday, My bike got entered at the airport in Punta Arenas and will be heading to Santiago on Saturdays truck. It #should# arrive in LA around May 5th, though who really knows.

Tomorrow Ill get the airbill and the tracking number, so Ill be able to see where it gets caught up.

In LA, Im spending the weekend with a great gal I used to date in Panama. Let me just say that if you need to meet any girls, doing yoga is the way to do it. I met my yoga teacher a few weeks after starting, and stopped going! Private lessons!

I may take you up on that, Ill need a lift to LAX to pick up the bike.

Dont suppose you want a crate too? Ill have to figure out what to do with it. I need to bring some gasoline, and a drill to take the crate apart (philips and 5.16th bits).

Also I just ordered some parts for the bike, sprocket and chain so Ill need to put that on before I can even leave the airport.

And I got some new rubber on the way - that actually fits the bike properly, Micheline Pilot Road 3s! Bye bye knobby, hello twisties!!!!

Change of plans folks. Heading to SF today, and will wait the arrival of my bike in the comfort of my home. When I get word that the bike is ready I'll either drive down to get it in my pickup or I'll find a ride down there.

By the way, those film guys that shot footage of me for a commercial in Australia?

Here's the commercial and in told its running in prime time slots all the time.

I was robbed!

Uh oh, snohobo crashmaster LA gtg!? Whooooo.

Would love to tell you, I suspect around the 10th but it could be later.

I can leave it at a friends house for you. Can't think of anyone I'd rather leave it to more than you. Good trade for that fuel filter and all the planning help.

Also let's wait and see what condition it's in.

I KNOW IM AN ASSHOLE!

Interestingly enough, once I got off the bike, I stopped thinking about bike related things, including ADVrider.

Apologies for letting you guys hang in the wind. Another bummer is that I lost a bunch of photos (I backed up most) but lost oct of the stuff from Buenos Aires to when I picked up the bike.

Let's just say Buenos Aires was awesome, and everything I expected. Ended up hooking with Sarah and Malcolm (the aussie couple that found me broken down on the side of the road in Patagonia) and we rented an apartment.

Met a gorgeous 22 year old Argentinian girl and had a real good time with her. Would love to share some indecent photos of her with you guys but they were part of the photos I lost!!!!

Spent some time with my folks, shooting guns and catching up.

Went and picked up my bike in LAX and it was painless. The crate was in great shape and the bike came out as good as it came in. Unfortunately it's still not in riding condition bc I'm waiting for an order from ktmcyclehutt and they are seriously lagging.

I'm the meantime, I'm writing this from Portland OR as I make my way to Whistler for some downhill mountain biking action, before heading out to Speedweek in Utah and going to Burning Man for 3 weeks.

So - clearly the nomadic lifestyle is not over, and I'm having a blast doing it.

Subaru and bike on the way to Whistler....

Nice to see that life moves on!

By the way, I got myself some 17000 kms out of the Heidenau K60 mostly on tarmac so I´m more than satisfied, just came back from North Cape in Norway!
