She left to go back South to Mississippi late last night. The house was pretty quiet this morning.

This is my last post to Advrider from work, I am retiring in 30 minutes after 30+ years. It was fitting of Andrew, friend and co-worker, to ride today because I'm handing the "are you nuts?" title over to him (the Kawi 250SM). Good kid, we pedal, run, ride, kayak together but no longer work together. He's also taking over part of my job, Cartographer.


Sorry I didn't ride my 950 today, the 640 was closest to the door.

Big stage ends, best one begins for sure!!! Congrats
Good you kept us online until the very last working 30mins.
And very representative that last picture over there. About 640 or 950... who cares! that's not the point today

Cheers!

Awesome Mike!!! For those of you that only know Mike from the internet, I must tell you, he is a great friend and teacher. My dual sport experience has been fantastic while riding and learning with him.
He has mucho patience with riders that don't have as much experience as he does.

And that's just about everyone he rides with.

Congratulations and many happy trails in the future.

Thanks Tom and others.


For now, I am taking the Month of January and trying to catch up on unfinished home projects and finding a part time job to maintain the "mistresses" that reside in my garage.

I may take a trip south to either the Daytona or Atlanta Supercross then over to visit my sister in western Tennessee on the 950 in March

Once the snow melts, the 950 will be back on the trails, for now 2-track

Congrats on retiring, I look forward to that day! Enjoy

Now we get to read great ride reports from you while we all sit in our cubicles envious of your time and adventures!

I've only ever done a couple ride reports online but I've logged them on my PC. My last 3 trips never made it to type but I have plenty of pictures.

2 days a week going over bikes and 3 working on my house through January, ride and play when I can.

Thomas, we'll get your bike done 1st, after I clean the work bench of in the garage.
