Question about your seat...

...easy now.... Hey Tiff, just curious, as a fellow R100 GS rider, would the solo seat not be more comfortable for such long hauls? Have you tried them and not liked them?

I only ask because I use one and far prefer it over the stock banana seat.

Your 2 cents is appreciated as you obviously would have more seat knowledge than the average Mongolian bear.

Talking Did someone mention seats?

Hi Patrick
If I had a single seat on my bike, what would I do about my passengers??

Positive thoughts and prayers as Big as Texas for your dad. Everyday is a blessing to be on this planet....But you already know that from your epic travels.

Its been some time..

since I contacted you when you were on your trip and would you believe I have only just caught up on your RR. I tell you life can go by so quickly.
I got a bit worried when I read you gave a customs officer some stick in JFK because I have only been through their once and who we met definitely did not have a sense of humour.
It was as great reading your RR as it must have been for you doing it.I think I may have said to you before but how you manage to do so much on your own is just amazing. Particularly when Thelma needs a nap and decides to lay on her side.Also how you came to terms with that strange coughing noise I don't know.I once went camping on the Southdowns and had a similar experience and when my wife asked me why I did not go out to investigate it when I said I would rather not know what it is she could not understand me at all.Better not to know is what I say.
My two little adventures this year are to go over to the I.O.M but in April rather than June as its far less busy and I can ride around without getting in the way of those who want to imitate the racers and I am in June going down to Dijon France for the Moto Legendes meeting.Now for the last four years I have attended the HU meeting in Derbyshire and I bet this year because I am not going you will be there.
Like everyone else I am sorry to read about Dad and I can only hope that he is doing ok and indeed has hopefully improved.
Your right Dad is your priority and your travels can wait but when you do set off again let me know because I enjoy reading your reports and hopefully you never know we may meet up sometime somewhere.

I'm belatedly catching up on my messages.

Yes- I will be back on Vancouver Island at some point, last time was when Simon Pavey gave a talk and I made some good friends over there. I then rode around and camped out, this was before I found out that the Island has more cougar attacks than anywhere else in North America!!

To be honest even though I know about the cougars I'd still be camping out but with a more watchful eye

Thumb 2013...

There's some great news, my dad has been gievn the all-clear on his lymphoma, the chemo has been successful and he will now have check-ups every three months.
Thank you so much to all those who sent their positive thoughts and messages, I really appreciate all the support I've received.

I'm making plans for 2013, autumn will find me doing my big trip, postponed from last year, but more details about that closer to the time.

in the meantime, I'll be heading back over the Atlantic in May as I have been invited to present again at the Overland Expo down in Flagstaff, Arizona
This was definitely one of the stand-out events for me last year and I'm very much looking forward to it. If there are any of you guys heading to that event, be sure to come over and say hello.
Thelma will be staying at home for this one, but I'm hoping to borrow a bike in Arizona to get around on.

Tiffany, so glad to hear that your Dad's going to be okay! Looking forward to hearing more about this year's big trip, too. I have a feeling you won't find it too hard to borrow a bike over here...but won't Thelma be jealous?

Great news about your dad.

I'll be at the Overland Expo on a UK-plated XT660Z. I think I'm signed up to a couple of your seminars/discussions so I'll look forward to seeing you there.
