Bon Voyage my friend, I am sure there will be more interesting RR in Europe I can hardly wait. Cat is coming with you is she?
I am sticking with Lalo until I find something I like better.
And Kathe is meeting me somewhere over there in about 2 weeks.
I am just not quite sure where yet.
And I am trying to figure out how to add her and 50 more pounds of her luggage......but I hope I can make it work

You have inspired me. Just catching up on your RR. I was on my bike for 2 weeks. Almost 3000 miles thru CA, OR, some of NV and back to CA. Even spent a day in Napa wine touring. Left Fresno area, across the delta into Napa, over to Bodega Bay, up thru Coos Bay OR, Crater Lake, Klamath Falls OR, Shasta area to Lassen< Then Reno to Yosemite then home last night. Got a shower, kissed the wife, servicing the bike today and ready to go again. Just need to recover from IRON BUTT syndrome first.

Laugh Suggestion

Roaming Europe two up at least the road in Europe are well maintain less work for you. But if you want to travel in style may I suggest....
Get a side car or a small trailer....

Yeah, you are going to need an iron butt because your wife is going to kick you in the ass if you decide to leave again on your bike any time soon

Sounds like a good time
That is how it all started for me......exploring California.......one the best places in the world to be on a motorcycle.......for sure
But I remember you contacting me before you left and I can't believe that 2 weeks has gone by since then. For you, it seemed like for ever. But for me, it went by in a flash.
It is crazy how that is.
Traveling by motorcycle has become my new norm. It is going to be hard to get back to reality when the money finally runs out. But I am hoping some door will open for me along the way. Some door that I can't see yet and one that I might not even looking for. But when it does open, I will know it and I will be racing toward it and jumping thru it.
Just you wait and see

I know it a motorcycle blog, but I thought I would share another picture of my GF. And I would like to hear from you if you want to complain about it. As an ex bikini model in Peru, she has lots more like this in exotic places around the world

Great. It's a brown double door. Just ring the bell. And you missed out on fishing....

Beyond happy for you right now. You did what you told me you were gonna do. I'll have a nice añejo for another round of margaritas when you get back to California. If you decide to come back. BTW nice score on the new chica. Did the meat bong scare her at first? Lol
