Josh, sorry to hear that. Are you sure it isn't something that Anti-Hassle™ Tassels can't solve? They're kind of amazing that way, and I'm not just saying that 'cause they're our corporate sponsor.

In other news, I'd re-routed us to avoid the landslide area on Hwy 89 south of Page, AZ. But if they decide to have a motorcycle class in the rally events ADOT announced yesterday, we may not want to skip that section.

Hmmmm...

haha Well if they can add a few days to the weekend then count me in! But seriously, I hate having to renege on something I said I would do. I was really looking forward to meeting some new faces and seeing some more of Arizona. I think part of it was I also thought it would be fun to be a footnote in this grand adventure that has been going on for so many years. Maybe if the schedules work out I can join in on the start of Mobius 12! Either way, you have my contact info, let me know if you need anything as you pass in and out of AZ. I'm in Chandler, which is in the southeast valley of Phoenix. Take care!

You know, I really have no idea how I'm gonna pull this 2 day thing off. I've never camped off of the bike, my DRZ has no rack and I have no moto luggage. I'm thinking of just bungeeing my hammock to the back of the bike and calling it a day.

Buck up, Nancy. Arizona's made you soft.

Safe Travels

I hope you all have a wonderful trip, It's gong to be great!

Doc, may there be few locked gates and re-routes.
LDF, keep it out of the ditches.

The rest of you...trust in the Mobius Way, the power of the Tassels and be safe.

Thanks Dave, I'm on call tonight, quiet so far... catching up on administrative duties; it's always nice to come back to a clean desk. I'm working on a bicycle version prototype of the Anti-Hassle™ tassles... there's a certain 7y/o girl in Flagstaff who just got a new bicycle for her birthday and it seems to be missing something:



Whaddya think? Maybe her Aunt Francine will teach her how to wheelie?

Gee Doc, I don't know what to say.... Ya think that new clutch cable may have fixed that?

Darn tootin' you betcha it has! And she busted up her Big Dog-graffiti'ed hand guards to boot crashing in the sand, so them's been replaced too! Our rides are like brand new -- huge thanks to Dingweeds!!!

For the Record:

I'm just teasing LDF. Unfortunately, I lose control of my sarcasm from time to time and stuff just blurts out. I could blame this on Doc because he documents the trip too well sometimes but I won't. Anyway, I'm pretty sure Francine can handle a little teasing from the peanut gallery.

Now on with the trip.

Hit the #1 on the hair clipper this morning as a way of supporting you. Can I make a suggestion for the Anti-Hassle™ tassles people. There is a small vegan riding population who could possibly benefit from their product. There are some high-quality synthetics that may work, but hopefully not lose their mojo.
Have a great trip guys, and don't be too nice to Julio
