Why there isn't just one GoPro camera ON in those situations...
This Indian is blind in one eye and can't see out of the other! (joke)

I do have a gopro now but that was taken with a 5mp Casio Commando cell phone. I have a few crashes on my YouTube page I'll send you a link to.

Nice weather this past weekend for exploring the grasslands.



After nearly breaking my leg last weekend, I decided the hard bags are only for commuting and touring. In any situation where I might have to dab, I'm sticking with the Giant Loop bag.

Ok... I had some trouble getting flight tickets to "Nawph Cackalacky", but finally I did get a pair to Charlotte-NC... I think that's pretty close
See you in 16hrs...

Coming to Charlotte, I'll ride down, it's only a one tank trip, 480 miles, I can stay with my Niece. I may actually be riding through Charlotte in a few weeks

Wow...! it would be great to also meet you Mike overthere, just like that...
And better for Blur, he can deliver me to Canada with you when he feels enough is enough with me...

Anyway, don't be affraid, long rides and flight tickets are temporarily postponed for me, due to my little kids (6 and 5 years old) and to family's budget. I'm in the middle of a standby stage until they grow up a few years, until that time when they don't miss you a bit . I will then return to long rides, I dream with rides out of LatAm.

For the occasional time I need greater range, I'm hesitant to invest in the safari tanks.
