Hi Camelia

Nice to hear from you! If you and Vasili decide to ride East this Summer. We'd love to have you come stay with us in Shediac.

I love my new KTM. I think I'm going to ride it over to see friends in Newfoundland later this week.

I have many fine memories of my great impromptu birthday party in La Paz

Cool!

Dwight

Talking Thanks Guys

Thanks Guys.

I've put 1000 kms on the new bike. I take it in for it's initial service tomorrow. I'm thinking of making a quick trip to Newfoundland to see friends in St. John's, possibly leaving Thursday morning.

I have Spanish class on Wednesday nights and I don't want to miss that. I'm really enjoying it.

If you want to see how I'm making out with the new KTM, here is my report on my first long ride on the new bike, a ride to Newfoundland

Congratulations

I enjoyed your RR. I owe you an apology of sorts. I got burned by the same scam at the same Guat border, same helpers, same dollar amounts, same trip to the bank, same parking fee...same story. Riding solo, intimidated by all the Helpers swarming the bike, afraid to leave it unattended, linguistically challenged...sound familiar?
I should have posted it but I never do the RR's. I'm just not disciplined enough I guess. I could have saved you some money. I'll buy you some beers instead if you ever get out to Salt Spring Island or I get out to NB.
Enjoy the new ride. Thanks for the read. Maybe I'll return the RR favour next time (but I wouldn't hold my breath!)
Cheers,
S.

No Worries

No Worries Steve

You're living in an awesome spot. Angele and I have visited Salt Spring Island.

That's funny the same two helpers "helped" you.

If you ever get to NB, look me up.
