Lalo,

Your RR is as good as ever. Regarding Kathe as my grandmother use to say to me there are as good of fish in the sea as ever came out. Jealousy is not a good trait in a g/f when you are on a trip of a life time. Enjoy your RTW adventure and I'm sure other doors will open for you in that department.

Kathe is not my problem. She is great.
I am not sure who is trying to hack in to my accounts, but I have an idea.
I just don't want to bring it up in more because I think it is just causing more problems for me.
So let's all drop the past, focus on now and look forward to what lies ahead.

Great job so far, pics and updates are great.

feel for you on the x issues, but shit happens.. you learn from it..

computer problems are just from clicking on links in emails that are really fonny emails pretending to be a legit email from facebook or whatever.
don't trust any email links.. go directly to whatever website is supposedly having a problem and log into it directly, if there is a real issue they will let you know once logged in.

keep up the dream ride! i'll be checking updates every day with coffee.
Thanks and I hope the back feels better
I am curious about something.
How does one stumble across my blog (RR)?
It interests me how you all found my blog

I found it when you started it, was looking at the RR thread, it caught my attention and has since never lost it

I agree with u on the big cities.

I have plated ktm EXC 450 and am looking to get a bike that can be more "dual sport". Something that can be more butt comfortable, reliable, and powerful.
I lost my login info from a few years back, so signed back up so I could ask the normal questions regarding a bike I was interested in.

Then after the back went to crap again (bulging disc flairs up for no reason about once every year or so) I had time to explore the forum and found the RR section and your thread. Read a few pages and could not stop then..

Enjoy the ride!

Culture in Budapest

The ladies here are stylish.
They all wear those big sunglasses that are in fashion but make them look like an alien insect or something.
Miniskirts are the norm even if it is jacket weather and some perhaps should consider going on a diet.
But the women are nice looking. But not Baltic country nice.
I can't say the same for the men. Most have these big beer bellies and kind of a rough face like a boxer or wrestler might have.
So if you are looking for a beauty queen, Budapest might not be a bad place to shop. There is little or no competition if you are a half way decent looking, fit man.
For me, I am just looking.
I am not in the market for anything other than some adventure.

In the past couple of Weeks, I have done a lot of miles on my motorcycle.
Mountain climbing in the snow and ice in Slovakia
Mountain biking in Lithuania.
But tonight, I am going to immerse myself in a little culture here tonight.
I was all packed up and ready to leave the city and I stopped by the old opera house to see if they had any tickets available for tonight to see Flastaff by Giuseppe Verdi.
Sadly they were sold out but the gal at the ticket office said to come back and 2 pm as there might be some tickets released then. And so I did and bought the last ticket available.
So fate has it that I am to see an opera here in Budapest tonight.
I certainly will be able to cross that one off my list.
And too bad it wasn't The Flying Dutchman by Richard Wagner. Now that would have been my destiny.

Cabo san Lucas Ride

I've been to Cabo San Lucas on my motorcycle cruiser twice, the last one is with my wife. We've never had a problem with the military check points and even couple of times in the dead of the night.

But I still could not convince my friends to ride with in Mexico.

Dang, such good philosophy for all of life. So simply stated and yet so rarely done well! Outdoor adventures can be such good training for life! Thanks!

Brought my own wine glass too silly
When you are drinking an 6 Puttonyos 2001 Azsu wine, you do it right all the way (and not my metal wine glass either)
