I can't decide if I like your various "texture" shots the best (most artistic) or your "ride along shots (most motivating). But all your shots are really enjoyable - except, maybe, the bug collection .

The goofy ones made me laugh. "How to land and not break your helmet" seemed particularly instructive.

Two questions: 1) Where did you REALLY take those road shots? ... Not California - no cars in sight.
2) Where did you come up with the moniker "Darth Peach"? I crack up every time I see it. Actually the names people come up with, and the quotes are almost as much fun as all the ride reports. I'm VERY jealous of the creativity of so many of you ADV riders. I've been racking my brain for a year and still no clever handle comes to mind. Wait! maybe that's the problem: no brain, no mind, no name!!

Anyhow, DP, I'm now waiting anxiously for your next ride report. Merky Buccups!

THANKS!

All california. Hint of Nevada.

TDP.. Thanks for taking me along on your ride.. As others have said, the pics were excellent and your spirit is inspiring..

As I read through your story, I kept thinking...

"All of this came out of a simple offer to show a fellow rider around your home base and a last-minute decision to just keep riding past the turn-off to your house.... How often do we get caught up in the routines, rather than the Carpe Diem moments..?.. This is what you risk missing out on.."

That's what I found most inspirational about your trip..

Thanks for sharing.

That's exactly what it was about!

Glad you enjoyed it!

Hey R,

I recall you offering a few yrs ago to be my tour guide if I would haul my ass out there to the west coast........ Little did I realize the extent of your offer!

OUTSTANDING!

Now, to check out GR's RR.....

thx, awesome job!

Bla...bla....bla....I just find it hard for you not to snap a couple dozen photos. The important part is that you were there, and I was here...at work.....

Uh, I think there's easier ways to check the tread depth on those tires.
