Not so much.

Robbie O is and remains to be one of the cooler ADV members I know on here.

Well Lady,
What ever your future holds for you, I want to thank you for all the great pictures and a visit to your carefree and humorous lifestyle. The smiles, the laughs, the tears. It was a pleasure to be able to go along for the ride with you.

Thanks!

Been catching up with work and riding.

And of course, trying to get the 'arty' shot of the sand blowing across the beach during a big windstorm and an awesome sunset, ruined my camera friday.

Ride On!

From the other side of the world when it's cold and raining outside your ride reports bring back memories of summers past and start dreams of summers to come.

Ride report / Blog / Photo album? Who cares? It obviously brings a lot of joy to many like minded people.

What ever the future holds for you I hope you continue to share with us. Your love of life and riding is infectious and those photos are just plain fantastic!

I hope one day to be back in CA, I will certainly look at it differently thanks to you.

Know how ya feel! My little kodak that took all the great Alaska pics (that was stolen and recovered) has bitten the dust. Probably 5,000 pics taken. A few of those will be framed...that camera really was the beginning of a hobby I enjoy as much as riding! Never thought I would ever have a hobby that could be remotely described as 'artistic'.

Oh well. Perfect excuse to buy a new Canon SX20 IS with my Christmas bonus. Awesome point and shoot with a 20x optical zoom and tons of options. Will still probably buy another kodak for action shots while riding. It's more compact, and I wouldn't want to drop the $400.00 Canon while doing 70mph

But I hope it all eventually works out to everyone's satisfaction.

Let's get back to riding...

Hacking through the south part highway 1.
This is the super long cut to work for me......

I rarely go this way so it kind of cool to get humbled and feel like a beginner
Served as a good reminder to not let technique fly out the window when you don't know the road.

Still fun.
Great morning and a wheelie @ about the 1:35 mark........
My final post in this RR will be tonight.

This feels like saying goodbye to a friend for some strange reason...

Regardless, I await your final report.

I am doing my best to not comment, It is just amazing to see that a select few people here can fuck up such a great thing. I have had the honor of riding with Rivka and she has to be one of the nicest, and most caring people that I know. It saddens me to see her posting the final installment in the RR but like everything else in life....nothing lasts forever. Thank you for taking us along and showing us your part of the world through your eyes.
