Hey A-H,
That MotoCorso gang of yours is beyond cool. I didn't realize they put this together (my bad if this has already made the rounds..I only fell over it a couple of minutes ago while doing something completely different)

I sorta did this around the time you posted this, but didn't get around to writing a short rr until now. I had a few days off so I went to hang with a friend who lives in Paris, but instead of just taking a car or the tgv I rode there across some backroads. It was a great experience and I will def. take more longer rides when spring rolls around again.

Here's my rr http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=935569

and thanks for inspiring me.

Looks evil, DeeDub--and I, too, Blader, was surprised that MotoCorsa was the source of that hilarious photo shoot. That's the kind of guys (and gals) they are.

Duflul--you're just stoking the "international ride" fire burning in me. Nice bike, too!

So I've been offline for about a week. I won't bore anyone with the details, but lets just say I've had better times.

Ran across something cool this morning, though, and thought I'd share:



Fookin' eh....what's lurking under that menu-bar header?

This:


And under the cover?



My first published print article. Bike called me about a month ago and asked me to write the piece. As a life-long voracious reader of both auto and bike mags, this was a little bit of a dream come true for me. I had piles and piles of Fast Bikes and Bike (and of course Sport Rider and Motorcyclist) and would read through them over and over until stacks of publications would overrun whatever small studio I was living in. The bikes, the rides, the articles, the experiences....I could never get enough and never imagined that words, pictures and a trip of my own would appear...fuck...unreal.

(Doh!: They put Death Valley in the wrong part of CA, though.)

Congrats on the article Anti! I would love to read it, but alas, not a magazine I will find on my local stand here in Central Florida. Are they going to post it on their website?

Cheers,

Mike

Thanks, I'm sure we'll get to ride together someday! I'm picking up a copy of the mag as soon as it hits the stands, virtual or otherwise.
