    OK folks, THE CJ, Chanderjeet himself, his wife Richa Soni and their daughter Ida Sofie will be coming to Canada in July. They'll be in the US from appx 15-20 July.


    If you ain't aware, CJ is a icon around these parts. ADV hosted him in 2007, a recognition of his work hosting folks in India, and as I understand it (and have experienced myself) helped folks get started touring that wonderful country.

    CJ's Ride Report: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=271671


    This is epic stuff...life changing opportunity... Right here. Now. I'm soliciting your support. Who's in? Buffalo to NY/NJ and back to Buffalo--day tours...AND a party....of ADVers.


    They'll not have trans while they're here--and plus--who wants to go 'round alone. Pix in a few. :)

    To my regional pals that follow this sort of thing--I do need your help. I've got work commitments in here and taking my daughter to NC on the 14th. But, this is one of those things that I'm hoping you'll help me pull off my friends.

    He's solidifying his itinerary...but here's how it looks to me:

    15 July (Tuesday): Family of 3 and luggage need ride from Buffalo to ? Someone can do the whole ride--or come as far as you want to drop them to me.

    16 July (Wed): Fun somewhere around the Philly area....up for grabs....

    17 July (Thurs): With my friend Sam W. Staying in Scotch Plains, NJ and Jersey Shore Day

    18 July (Fri): Possible Sesame Place day.....

    19 July (Sat): Move to my house in Burlington, ADV Gathering there....overnight stay and train to Enduro 125 tomorrow

    20 July (Sun): Return to Buffalo

    Hell yeah. You just did 28 hours of driving, what's another 32. :D

    Love ya man, I think this is an easy coast run BUT, it'll keep developing. I say we wear him out.

    I am looking for an inmate in NYC who knows him/of him to show them some sights in NYC, host overnight and then drop him at his ride back north. (or that person will come pick him up).

    You have anything you think you could do let me know...I want some asylum members in the US on his itinerary.
