Whoaaa. Some nice little family just walked into my place and bought everything else that I had for a flat rate. I'm done. Down to a sleeping bag, blow up pillow and 2 1/2 used TKC 80s. Guess I'll just throw um on the back of the bike when I head to mexico to get some mileage out of them.

The motorcycle Gods (and advriders) have smiled upon me. I am grateful.

Now, I need to run around the neighborhood and pull down signs and cancel the craigslist ad and the one here at ADV rider.

You people rule!

Cheers,

Vance

You may want to consider prepaying (6 months or so) any recurring monthly bills like Net service, cell phone, insurance, Penthouse subscription, etc. That helps some people feel a little more free and with fewer worries.

Just an idea.

Vance, best of luck on your journey.

If you're in the NY/NJ area and need a meal, or place to crash let me know. Love to have you. (that sounds better when you type it... )

Ride safe.

Happy and safe travels!

If you find yourself anywhere near Park City Utah on your trip, the guest bedroom/bath is open to you, along with a fairly well equipped shop, high speed internet, cold beer and hot food. We're right off I-80 on the way to/from Sturgis.

Your livin' a dream, man.

Man, there is something about riding “carefully” that will get you killed! I am carefully preparing for this trip on the 16th. Running around on the bike, buying spare parts, making sure that everything is working perfectly, changing all fluids, just basically feeling great about the bike and everything packed inside of it.



I am running to the library daily to keep up with emails and contact some friends on the East Coast and whatever, bla, bla, bla. I am riding really “carefully,” making sure to look at every intersection and every car that might pull out and just taking extra care as I want to make it out of this fucking city and to Mexico in one piece. Fucking A if I have not had 3 close encounters in the last week. Fucking morons I tell ya! I am going the speed limit, so I guess this means to them that it is OK to just pull out and ram into my ass.



I swear to God if I make it out of here without a serious case of road rage it will only be due to the fact that I have screamed FUCK! Inside of my helmet so loud that my earplugs fly out of my head! I’m going back to ripping around town, splitting traffic like I usually do. Ride safe…and apparently aggressive ya’ll.
