Amen. Less concern about visual prostate self - examination and more attempt to come to closure.

Just read about the missing rider this morning and my first thought was to check here to see if it was an inmate.

Hoping everything turns out ok for this guy.

While chatting to him on Instagram Id suggested he start a RR and he said he would but guess it didnt happen.

In his blog he's written about having a gun shoved in his mouth at some point during his past travels and other similar hairy situations so hopefully this is just one of those incidents which has a good story.

Or, as unresponsible as it may seem given the worldwide response, he just went off the grid for a while.

www.anewyorkertravels.com is his blog

Bananaman, thanks for the up date.
Good to see that the KLR info is posted.
If a kid from Iowa can waste the resources of your government, it does nothing to help the situation for missing American riders.
Sorry for the mix up about that other situation. I still maintain it never happened. The sht that happened with me a week ago here was witnessed by another rider.

It does look like one of the bikes the police/baddies were chasing Harrison Ford in Clear and Present Danger.

I hope this ends well.

I plan to ride my bicycle from Florida through Mexico and on to S.A. soon.

Best wishes for the family and friends.

Really?
How so?

Were you ever on that set? Ever see the bikes in person?

This is precisely the kind of useless speculation that these threads take on.
It's a little too late for him to re-paint it or select another color of bike now, isn't it?

It is speculation but maybe something to keep in mind for the next guy as far as riding an olive bike in a country where real bad guys want to kill members of the military.
