    Nice to read those reports again.
    Can't believe the Strom made it down Black Bear Pass.
    We are heading back out to Colorado this summer July 21, might even see you at the 2012 WestFest
    When: July 27-29
    Where: The M Lazy C Ranch, Lake George, CO.
    If that is the rally you are going to?
    Flea:rofl

    Hey Flea, great you're going. Yes I'll be there & RMR. Trading off going to Alaska.
    I'll be riding Suzi home after this. Take some time off riding the world.
    Time for family, catch up with friends, local rides & deal with ongoing heart issues.
    See you out there:clap

    I just read your RR all the way through. As I did, my admiration for your photography, your story, your spirit in overcoming personal obstacles, grew, and after reading this post for your courage as well. I've been to some of the same places, seen some of the same things, but my overall effort pales by comparison. I recently purchased a "Wee" Strom as my Fly and Ride machine from an inmate, and a garage in Phoenix to keep it in. I hope to be able to get down from Calgary and ride it a bit. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Wishing you well with your "repairs." Mend well!

    Aah good luck Calbertan! Phoenix is a great hub.
    Thanks so much for the compliments, so glad you enjoyed the report.
    Very much appreciate your comments.
    Badly need to get caught up with the report, this type of feed back is a great motivator.:D

    Let me know when you're coming mate. Some of my buds who made that ride with me were talking about doing it again soon. Me, I'm playing it pretty cool with the off-roading after a crash, (on pavement), last July near Santa Fe.

    I would love to see more pics and tales of adventure.

    Are you going to make it out for RMAR or WestFest?

    Camped next to you at WestFest last summer and enjoyed getting to meet you.

    Hi George,

    Hey thanks for the response, hows it going?
    No RMAR or WestFest this year unfortunately.
    Local riding & family life for the summer with big plans for fall.
    Will elaborate later.

    Things are pretty good out here in NM. Bummer you won't be out here for the rallies, but I look forward to hearing about the "big plans for fall".
