It's all about the stories

Quite a few of you have commented on how much you've enjoyed the experience of simply listening to a story on this thread (it is quite a departure from our ADD/hyper-media fueled culture). I hesitate a little bit to post this here simply because it's not Ned telling the story, but I'm sure that he can relate to it in his current routine. It's not a rally story, but it is a motorcycling story that many of you can probably identify with. I hope you enjoy it.

Hey, I saw this pic on the Cliff Notes thread and it sure sounds like the hill the Ned rode/rolled down today. Note that these guys are sliding down the hill on their butt.

Feigling! Ich auch nicht!!

RIDE ON NED (fun)DURO

Dood you are almost there. I have ridden a KLR from Lima to Santiago and back, it felt like forever. Only 3 days out. Ride on Brother Ride on. It is in the books. Enjoy the camp out and enjoy the vastness of South America for what it is, IMMENSE. I am proud to know you and to know that I had a small part in making it your REALITY. I shaved my noggin the first day of your dream (20in. ponytail) and I don't regret it. Happy Atacaman Trails, you ROCK.

I'm just getting caught up after my 50hr week from hell. You guys are the bestest! What a way to start my weekend, tears of joy after listening to Ned's "Dakar moment" and now more tears from laughing my arse off.

Ned and his slightly crazy friends are the best.

Translation?

Ich verspreche das ich mir sie aber kurz schneiden lassen werde

which means----translated----something like:

No thanks, I'll stay with you a coward, tomorrow I go to the hairdresser cut, but only, not to cut!
I promise I'll let them cut short, however, ????

Another Way to Support Ned

Inmate RhodeHazard created that awesome artistic print of Ned that was posted a few days ago, and has made it available for purchase -- $10 of each print ($14) will go straight to support Ned's Neduro to Dakar Fund.



(Original photo by Andre Chaco of Webventure)
8x10" Prints are available for purchase at Ernie's site, http://www.motorbikeartist.com/


Scroll down one frame and "add to cart". Put some fuel in Ned's tank, and get an awesome bit of memorabilia to put on the wall. Bring it for Ned to sign when he does a presentation near you.


Thank You, Ernie!
