Thanks!

Great RR and excellent pictures.

It's fun for me to see Winnipeg RR's as I still feel like it's home even though I left there a loooong time ago.

Please do another trip and another report.

p.s. ... the "I don't feel special" bit is a Canadian thing. You're stuck with it.

nice report John,

that's quite a ride for your first one - I'm happy it all worked out even with the rain. Is this something you had wanted to do for quite a while or more of a sudden inspiration?

I lived a year in Winnipeg when I was a kid - I still think of it as the coldest winter and hottest summer of my life... .

looking forward to your next adventure!

Great stuff! Looks like a fantastic trip.

One question: What type are your riding pants with the straps? Those look like exactly what I'm after. Thanks.

John buddy, great ride report...stuck here with my old friend "Jack D".... nice friend, just dosen't say much...

Glad you put more of the ride report out there, thought you might be shitten me when you said you rode that KLR to Mexico...it was way too clean to have that many klicks on it.

Got 8 7 days left on my contract and then heading to the "Hat" to pick up my new "old" ride. Are you heading that way, maybe you can haul it back to the Peg for me ???? Give me a PM if you are for it !!
