This is very true. Thanks again for taking the time to write those books.

Vid

Really appreciate your message about respect at the end of the new vid. Without it no venture can fully succeed nor message long endure. With it we are empowered to participate in the greater blessings of humanity, both giving and receiving.


PS: Rode to Guatemala recently. The people were great. No troubles. Looking forward to another ride further south. Hope all is well with you both.

to someone on the outside looking in, your kidnapping seems like a crucial and pivotal event...
You are 100% correct. Although it took awhile to see this, that whole experience in Colombia became a springboard to the next level.

A common conclusion for those who wander, especially through the developing world where they seem to remember much of the humanity Westerners have forgot.

If the cost of a Beemer doesn't get you, the hard on it gives you will. Thank goodness I can't afford a BMW.

there's a lot of that story that just doesn't add up. its a 1993 BMW, thats an old bike already, and a corbin seat, so wtf does BMW NA have to do with it? at most the dealer who sold the seat could be sued.

So Cal Party Time!

On another note...
I'll be doing a meet-and-greet with book signing this Saturday at Irv Seavor's super celebration of their 100th year anniversary. There will be lots to see and do so I hope ya'll ride out for this very fun event! If nothing else you'll get to meet Hiba, who is far easier on the eyes than me.

My wife Sherry and I sat in the second row of your slideshow presentation and were completely enamored with your story. Thanks for coming out, was a pleasure to hear about your adventures.

Subscribed!


EDIT: BTW, if you ever need help self-publishing I would be happy to help. I have an aquaintance whom I have published five books. They were paperbacks but hard cover is no problem either. Reasonable pricing per book starts at about a thousand books. A couple of his are at amazon and broder. I had to convert his from WORD to InDesign and set all the photos, did the cover designs for them.

Thanks amigo. Although I do mostly corporate presentations these days, I always enjoy doing a show for motorcycle riders. And thanks for the self-publishing tip. So far though, I use regular publishing houses because they provide editors and handle distribution.

Nice to have met you, albeit only breifly. It would had been nice if my scheduled that day allowed enough time to stick around for your presentation.

¡Vive Mexíco!
