    I AM IN A BIND!!!

    I had Outerwear lined up for this trip and it just fell through.
    Do to counting pennies I cannot afford new riding gear.

    So if by any chance anyone knows a rep or is a rep that could help me out with at least a waterproof jacket would be amazing.

    I would do product reviews, logo on webpage, decals on bike, whatever it takes.

    Or else it looks like I will be starting this trip with dirtbike boots, Alpinestar Leather Race jacket, and dirtbike pants.

    I know it is a HAILMARY and short notice (I head south in 9 days), but thanks for looking/ helping

    What size jacket do you need?

    Also, you should post a request in the Rockies section; a great bunch of guys and gals always willing to help if they can.

    My last day of work is over, the goodbye's have started (with lots of goodbye beers). Now running around with my head cut off trying to piece together everything I have to do before I leave for the next 2 years!!! I will be leaving Crested Butte on Friday the 4th, to meet up with all my friends one last time to say goodbye. I will then head toward LA on Saturday camping on the way to see my Bro and Nephew. Then on Monday the 7th I will leave LA around 4am to Cross the border at Tecate. I will ride down to Todos Santos for my friends wedding on the 11th.

    You are following my proposed route until Eastern Russia! I will back-track from Magadan and then South to Malaysia and into Australia! I will surely be fallowing this RR. Ironically, I am from Colorado too! Not that "Denver/Boulder" Colorado, but the real Colorado like you......If you can call CB "Real":lol3



    Good luck!

    :clapLast night a group of very close friends and family met in Blackhawk for a going away party. To say the least we did not sleep much, I got around 4hrs of shut eye. I got a late start with lots of good byes. Ran into some gnarly weather, snow, hail, rain all coming down sideways, the wind was blowing me around a little. My new Gore-tex riding gear worked AWESOME!!!!! Thank you KLIM and SUNSPORTS for the rad gear. Although I found out my old riding boots was shot, after riding with soaken wet frozen feet I swung into a moto shop picked up a pair of waterproof Gaerne boots and a few other parts. I grabbed a quick bite of dinner and rode into the dark trying to kill off a hundred or so miles of straight Utah highway. As I crossed into Utah there was just an incredible feeling of that everything was right and was well worth selling everything and leaving everything behind to ride into the unknown.
    I have cold so I grabbed a cheap hotel room for the night hot shower and bed. I will wake up early tomorrow and bust a move straight through to LA to see my bro and nephew for the night. The adventure of a lifetime has started and I cannot stop laughing!:lol3
