Regarding the 650's in Ushuaia, we are waiting for a couple more bikes to arrive before we arrange to move the container.


One guy should be there today and load this weekend.

The container is full!! There are seven motorcycles in the container.
We are thrilled! (Well, I don't really know.....maybe there is room for another bike)

Osvaldo told me to remain calm more than a month ago. I had emailed him and asked if he had had any inquiries and where were we going to find additional motorcycles to share the container?

He assured me that it would happen..... more motorcycles would arrive....

James did a great job in getting the word out here on ADV, in the Latin America regional forum, our forum and on Horizons Unlimited.

As it stands now, $4,500./7 = $642.85 ....
There will be other costs once they get to Long Beach.... We don't know what they will hit us up for......

We are planning on renting a trailer and hauling the bikes back to Claremont for those who won't be able to get to the dock to collect their bikes.

Hi Colleen. Nice to hear you are getting your motos back soon. And rather inexpensively to boot! I think the bike of some Mexican friends we met in Puno is in the container too. Daniel and Itziri. From Guadalajara. Nice gesture to store the bikes for those who can't get there rt away to receive them. Say hi to James for us! Marc & Nadia in San Martin de los Andes, Argentina

James and I and DSM8 (Dave) rode Angeles Crest and Angeles Forest, Route 2 and 4 up to Newcomb's today. The mountain did not dissapoint! An absolutely spectacular day with twisties and views that are world class!

We were greeted with an abundance of motos and cool cars!

Then Jay Leno walked past our lunch table and said hi to Colleen!

Moto GP was on the big screen...... Ahhhhh..... life is good!!

Coolina




















Jay asked if I would take a picture with him....... Well, what could I say, I had to be polite!




































DCM8 and the Tuckers














Leno's ride.....











James likes it!

Cool

Looks like you had an exciting ride. Neat. Great pictures. Didn't realize that Newcombs was so popular..... Maybe I'll get there sometime.
Neat also for you to run into Jay Leno and get your picture with him.
Cool ride he has...
Happy Easter to the both of you.
Ride safe.
