Yes, when I get to Holland, I will look you up
And if you are gone on your vacation to India, just leave the key nder the mat and put some beer in the frig for me

Should you by any chance be visiting Holland next year, there's a bed for you here. (Depending on your and our schedule that is, we're off to India next summer for 4 weeks. My email address is on my webpage).

Keep up the good work!

Yes, sometimes it is better to keep your dreams a dream
I think that alot when I am lying in my tent in some field or abandoned building
At night, I hear all kinds of sounds
Last night it was some sort of cat
A big cat at that
But I am doing it
Living the dream
I hope you can too some day

I am averaging less miles than I thought
It is not like Alaska where you can do 500 to 600 miles easy
There are lots of curves, towns and speed bumps down here
God, I hate speed bumps
No problem finding gas
Pemex stations are everywhere
And if they aren't, and you need gas, you can always find someone to sell you gas out of a drum somewhere
I have been running the 92 premium gas here
It will run on 87 but it is hot and it will ping if you lug the engine

Good Job on the RR. Keep up the pics coming. How many miles are you avg. per day? Any problems finding fuel? What octane gas have you been using? Does it matter on the GS? Travel Safe my friend

Pakistan is not on my route
But I heard it is an amazing country with lots of nice things to see
It just gets a bad rap in the media here

Who knows, maybe I will go to Pakistan one day
Right now, I have a lot of countries on my plate

If you make it to denmark next year you are more than welcome to come and stay and i could play your guide for a while. Lots to see and do. It looks like we have many of the same ideas how life should be.... Dirt biking, kayak, beer and travel...not tequila...

I live in odense in denmark. About a mile from the tourist spots like the house of H.C.Andersen and a really great bar with more than a 100 different beers from denmark and europe.

Also i have a workshop to fix the bike and my best friend is a bmw mechanic.

So let me know.. And have fun in your travels.

when you come to Europe, don't miss visiting Portugal, it's a small country but you wont regret (even more since you're such an wine buff). You'll have a place to stay, jut let me know!

Just bring your wallet

I saw the signs to Coba
I might skip Tulum
I am sure it is full of tourist and buses
We'll see
Right now the beach is calling me

And Merry Xmas from a lurker.

I need to come back and just spend some time in Mexico
It is a great country
It really get a bad rap in the media

But as of yesterday, the days are getting shorter and shorter every day in the southern hemisphere
It is a race against the weather
I need to get to the tip before my window of opportunity shuts
