Fantastic ride and storytelling. Can't wait for the next installment. If you ever find yourself in Washington D.C. give me a shout!

I got a spare bedroom for you in Indiana. Food and drinks are on me , as well as garage to park overnight or work on the bike.

Paris in January... I'd love to come visit, but Hoyks is right, no way could Dot keep up with that thing, looks like a 125 to me. Fastest Dot ever did was 85, downhill, no panniers, head on the clocks. And that's in kilometres as well.

What happened to the Yamaha?

Air filter

First off, very entertaining RR. I only read a few bits and pieces now, but I'll definitely read everything later! Anyway I just thought I'd mention when I read the part about the bike not working because of the altitude thing. I immediately thought that it would work if you removed the air filter. And I was about to tell you that you could have removed it, but then I read that you did. Lol. Anyways your RR is like a good movie that I'm going to "pause" for now. I look forward to resuming it when I get the chance. Good stuff!

50cc... man, you've got yourself a race.

Snow here as well. I've tried riding on it but kept falling off. Let's wait til it thaws. Then Yeehaa!

I second this, please finish your ride report! Great story, my favorite ride report so far! Don't know If you mentioned this earlier but how much do you think this ride cost you from the moment you left your office in China to your mom's house in France?
