Thumb Awesome, awesome, awesome...

I have to say, a melancoly moment as we fade to black. Bummer this is over but you'll be back with more, I just know it.

Thumb Amazing Report!

Thank you for taking the time to put together one of the best ride reports ever. Your attention to detail is amazing and I can't even imagine the time it must take you to put everything together. You rock!

Speaking of rocks... I don't think I have ever seen two people ride in such unison and make it look so effortless. While it has been said, Big Wan is an incredible pilot of that big blue bus, it can't go without notice that Little Wan is just as an amazing passenger! If they have a two up class at Erzberg I think you two could easily take the win!

I am already looking forward to your next summer vacation! Thanks!

Kelly and Matt , thanks for the hours of enjoyment ! As the rest of your minions , I can hardly wait for your next adventure . After seeing what you two do two up , I am so inspired that I might even take my Wee Strom off the pavement ! Kelly , I sure am glad you don't charge us an hourly rate to do your reports . Only a handful could afford to read , watch it . Hats off to all your hard work , we appreciate it !

The perfect ride report!!!

Thanks for the effort, LittleWan!!



How is the bike? Miles on this one now? Burn any oil? How long do the wheel bearings last? Brake pads? Clutch?

GPS tracks to share?

Thanks for the great (as usual) report, Little Wan. No one uses linkies like you do. And Big Wan, your skills are amazing.

Thanks for taking the road not taken

With a nod to R. Frost:

Two paths diverged in the wildnerness, and the Wans —
consistently took the one more rock strewn, steep and ridiculously difficult,
And that has made all the difference.

Thanks for the report!

Cool2 Thank you!!

Great ride report! I really enjoyed it. Thanks for taking us along on the Wans anniversary extravaganza!
I am sad that it is over though , I am going to miss tuning in daily for the newest update. I hope you guys get some time to go out and do a little mini adventure riding. I look forward to the next installment of the Amazing 2up adventures of the Wans.

Thanks for taking the time to share your exciting adventure with the rest of us. No one does a ride report like you and no one rides two up like the two of you do.

Butcher Ranch trail!!! Richard has tried to kill me a few times going down that.
Pauley Creek is the craziest uphill in that trail network.
Something like this happens every time.



Thanks for including us in your epic trip. Awesome, brilliant, fantastic job.
You two are amazing and inspiring.
