Thanks, I should have used misadventure, but maybe it was taken.

I have seen your website, IMPRESSIVE. You are an inspiration. This is the first of your ride reports I had the time to read all the way through. I see you have a couple of others, which I must check out.

I noticed you have done a lot of trips two up. I think it is cool that you travel with someone and take turns driving. Do you prefer that modus operandi?

Many thanks for the kind words Missadventure, I've got three RRs here, but have also done another five majot bike trips which were all trans-continental. I love travelling two up on my bike, and to be honest,.. that was how I learnt to ride a big bike with the pillion rider (Brit word) calling encouragement whilst she was also holding on for a dear life
and also all my off-roading for the first few years was two-up, probably even more of a white knuckle ride However, when you don't know anything different, you just get on with it.
I enjoy the challenge of riding, but also enjoy relaxing on the back, in that way I can appreciate the view as well as ensuring I get that all important afternoon nap. In fact I once fell asleep within 20 mins of getting on the back of someone's bike!
If I'm on my bike solo then I also often pick up hitch-hikers - no doubt that will trigger off a few comments.

Yep, that took me on a trip down memory lane, finding the RR and then starting to read it, OMG I spent the first three pages trying to work out how to post pictures (with Cole being a smart arse the whole time).
Anyway, enjoy

My daughter has been out in under 5 minutes of climbing in a sidecar.

What bike have you got now Marty? I had a great time with the guys at Countryside BMW.

And on a completely different note, I know some people were asking about my ADV Secret Santas whom I visited during this trip, well folks, today is the deadline to sign up for the Famous ADV Rider Secret Santa
It's fun, a lot of fun.
Check it out on the Inmates section of the forum and get yourselves signed up.

Hi Tiff, bought another 1200GS. Triple black. Prefer having new moto's under warranty for my travels. Then I look at you and Thelma and cringe with shame. The guys at countryside think the world of you.

that's quite sweet coming from you Cole
but personally, I'd say referring to me as "woman" perhaps wasn't quite as helpful as some people would be.

That's funny stuff Tiff.


I do believe that since you are now completely and lovingly accepted by the riding community, all sexist commentary and disrespectful terms are in poor taste, and the juvenile hazing should cease immediately ............. Woman!

Hope you are enjoying your downtime back home!

Why yes, yes you do have one of my stickers!

I gave it to you when we chatted out at the obstacle course/ GS Giant track in Sedalia this last summer. (remember that cool summer day?) I was hoping for a "Tiffany" sticker, but was way too shy to ask if you had any. Enjoyed your talk that afternoon, BTW.

Thanks for ignoring my sophmoric comment above ......... maam.
