    I gotta wonder what is with the obsession of constantly re-posting said dudes in really small and tight shorts! :huh

    Can't help but think of lyrics to "Les Boys" by Dire Straits when I see that pic of the tatted chubby dudes. Nice RR Doug. Thanks for all the work and effort to chronicle your travels. :clap GRACIAS!

    Today, the first Harley Davidson has made it to Magadan, in NE Russia.
    BMW GS riders worldwide groaned in disbelief, as they watched the drama unfold on laptop computers from the relative safety of their local Starbucks.
    When asked how he felt after reaching the end of the Road of Bones, Doug replied
    “I’m wore out like a 2 dollar whore on nickel night!”

    Amazing -- not just the ride, but being able to find the first Harley-Davidson! Congratulations on both counts.

    Among all of us Starbucks-bound couch taters, you da' man in a Far Eastern Land!

    PS: why do you hold a cigarette just like fellow Alabamian Truman Capote used to? (I've always wondered)
