Like flying to Los Angeles this week.
The plane was completely full.
But Kathe spoke with the captain and he gave me the jump seat.
And i can tell you, sitting in the jumpseat in the back of the plane for nine hours is not fun. But Kathe brings me food and wine from first class that makes the time pass quicker.
Champange, filet mignon, port wine and ice cream......yum
Lalo, It's been a hoot following your RR. Your meant to meet up with a friend of mine in DA'LAT Vietnam. I'd like to send you a private message but I'm not sure how to do that, so if you have a minute maybe you can send me a e-mail and I can get back to you. bob@adventurepockets.com Ride Safe

But your "hooked up" deal is still a great one. Looking forward to the rest of your travels. Stay safe!!
Sadly, after 100,000+ miles in the sky, i am still not a member. But I assure you it is not from lack of trying

It has been two weeks since i rode a motorcycle and i was going thru withdrawals. So i fired up the only bike i have without a dead battery and went for a ride.
As the rest of the country seems to be snowed in, Southern California is having warm sunny days.
I headed up in to the mountains near Lake Hemet

My buddy Mark and his son Andrew invited me to stay at their house in the desert. He tempted me there with Blue Chimay, guacamole, an outdoor jacuzzi tub and a nice bed to sleep in. So how could i say no to that

Mark and i went on a little ride from the desert in to the nearby mountains. The road is nicknamed "Palms to Pines" and it is one of the best rides in Southern California on a beautiful winter day.

Lalo update

He just left my house. Joined him for a nice ride (too short) and some good food, stimulating conversation and adult beverages. He says if all goes well he will not be back in the states for awhile. I wish you safe travels my friend.

I have had this motorcycle for over 10 years. It is a 1999 Honda CBR1100Xx.....also known as a Blackbird.
I still think it is the best sport touring motorcycle ever

The weather here in So Cal has been perfect......sunny and 80 degrees
So I have been doing some riding around the area

But today, i leave for Hong Kong. I am hoping to rent a scooter or something
