    I think I would feel safer riding my bike around northern Iraq than riding on L.A. freeways at 5:00 in the afternoon.

    Good luck with all of your projects, especially your Cannonball Indian. Thank God it's got better ABS than those new BMW's!

    Keith - GREAT shot - 2 of my heroes in the same shot! Glen and Doug are in a league of their own. Thanks for posting.

    Doug - can we buy TShirts online? Unfortunately I am in Canuckistan up in the great white north and unable to attend the shows you are presenting at...

    Thanks and ride on,

    I guess I'd have to quote the illustrious marketing engineers over at Harley to answer that one. (something I thought I would NEVER do! but....)

    it was great to meet all you guys who I had only talked to online before. Meeting people has been the best thing about doing these shows.
    Other than that, it hasnt really been alot of fun. I got into huntsville at 8am this morning. I hate airports, and sitting in a flying bus for hours. and 2-3 days to work per week. My cat bitches at me when I get back. I cant ride my motorsickles, or work on my projects. But, doing the shows & meeting people almost makes it worthwhile :D

    Hi Rob
    thanks for finding it for me. It IS a 39 Norton, but its the side valve model, & Che rode thru S America on an OHV model.

    I wouldnt mind finding a sidevalve chassis, if the OHV motor would fit, but that one was a bit nice (and too expensive) to butcher up

    I came to see you in Long Beach on Friday. It's always great to hear live commentary with pictures like yours.
    I was disappointed that they cut you off after only a half hour when there was still an hour or two to go in the show itself.
    I would've happily sat and listened for longer.

    <table border="0" cellpadding="5" width="650"><tr><td>It was great to finally talk with you in person, and meet the lovely Poly! I'll have to agree with everyone here, we could enjoy your on-stage ride reports for hours. On Saturday when they stopped your presentation at the 30min mark I was hoping for a takeover so you could continue.

    You know, it's surprising you and strikingviking have never met. Somehow it seems that all you World-by-Moto travelers know each other. :lol3

    naw, in seattle now. Im gettin a bit tired of it tho, 3 days a week at home to work just aint cutting it. Hard to make any money selling a few t-shirts.
    Got the next 2 weeks off, then I'll decide how many more I want to do.

    We should simply ride somewhere one day... don't give a shit where.... ( wait forget I said that... I ain't going to no snow stuff )
