I just don't like the idea of not having "The Constitution" sticking up for me.

I'm glad that others who decide to do so, give reports with pictures.

It was fun looking in & tagging along.

I'm having trouble finding another Quito, so I think it's not necessary.

I was trying to be helpful, so I think your comment is also unnecessary!

(not necessary is bad English)

What do you think Mo', you're the clever one on here aren't you???

Thanks for the compliment and for staying with us.


We have an attitude about it that goes like this:

If you could, when you are at home, wouldn't you go for a motorcycle ride every day?

Soooo.....we go for a motorcycle ride every day, but we just keep going in one direction!

We'll get up in the morning and one of us may say....."do you want to go for a motorcycle ride today?"

It is pretty easy, once you make the time and money.................

When something goes wrong or we do something wrong......I'll say to Colleen...."what are they going to do, shoot us for turning right on a red?"

It's not against the law to argue and protest, even in countries down here, you can't let it get out of hand......but they did call the cops on me at the Argentine border.......I told them I wasn't impressed or scared.....I think it unhinged them a tad. There're not going to shoot you..................they might...........no they are not going to shoot you

I'd say PERU is the best country regarding RIGHTS, there are posters here and there advocating citizens rights and freedom and none discrimination.....we feel our favorite country was Peru. There seems to be a lot of freedom for self expression and personal space.....it's really quite groovy.

Funnily enough, apart from the Canadian Rockies and the fact I have family in Alberta.....I thought Canada sucked. Parts of it reminded me too much of depressed England.......and I'd have to say the one surly Canadian border guard I encountered soured me too. Coupled with the cost of things I am not a great lover of crossing the northern border.......we go to Mexico and specifically Baja many times a year...........happily
You are correct though, it's not for everyone..........we don't like to talk anyone in to coming on ANY of our rides....................

First Class all the WAY !!!

Hi James and Colleen,
How nice that you got bumped up to first class on your flight. Great idea. I'll have to ask next time. We're headed out tomorrow for Vegas so if you want to join us out there later in the week feel free to stop by.
Love the pictures and especially the laundry one.
Hope you have a good flight back. Liked the statue in the airport too. That's really nice that they can still do something like that in SA.
xox

Girlfriend

I dated a girl who was a year older than me, in High School. She was "moving away" after graduation and I knew it. I'd get an empty spot in my throat when I thought about it. I'm getting the same feeling now; knowing that this is coming to an end!

This is kinda a ride report, my son who is in the Philippines has taken out some sort of 'bike' I quote from his post. ' Epic adventure on a bike today involving a snapped key in the seat lock, three hot wiring Philippinos , a punctured tyre fixed by a father and son team for 60p , an almost flattened snake , an almost flattened tortoise, and a man who tried to sell me a four bedroomed beach house for/20k, oh and an abundance of stunning scenery'

As his mom, am I worried?
