Keep up.

When finished, I will save and keep dearly your thread , because every rider with a family will have to face the "family or bike" question, and your trip (and attitude) is a ray of light in the darkness.

MJ- So many people reveal the what but not the why, tell us where but keep their feelings about it to themselves. I'm really glad you don't and it makes your reports my favorite on the site. Thanks for taking the time and effort.

Awesome RR. Wish to do the same with my growing family one day. The line above left me chuckling all day at work.

Thanks for the laughs.

If I were to sum up your outstanding adventure and lifestyle, this would be it. You are the luckiest man alive! Thanks for sharing your ride, your thoughts, feelings and your pics! Peanut is a delight!

You've got what I've wanted ALL my life ... fairdinkum.
I missed the boat ... Mrs can't ride, never wants to try ..... kids all grown and got their own families/things to do ... I ride solitaire ( as it were ).

Your RR, your family ..... your ....
I gotta go.

Thanks so much
