Go Ned!

Great to hear Ned. I am looking forward to your blog and true adventure.

Might as well make this one a sticky right away...

Best of luck, and I look forward to following your Bled, Nog...oh, fuck it, the words you write that we will read

PS - Please keep the orange colored motorcycle bits to the absolute minimum...I have a weak stomach

PPS - If I read one single sentence about: "I am really doing this for the poor orphans toiling in the acid mines of Peru, and if you give generously I will donate all my used master links to them or at least bribe someone to toss a few down the open mineshaft"...I will personally stand next to the course and throw Llama shit at you

Go racing, mate

And this from someone who once said something like "dirt is for growing potatoes, asphalt is for racing", if I recall correctly.

With friends like these, you're all set for a big impression.

Go Ned go.

That video was great it has to be one of the best bike videos I've ever seen.


Remember to put plenty of photos up of the bike prep.
