    Any chance of a report soon? Maybe some Belize and Guatemala photos? Even a sentence would be good. Hope you are enjoying. :lurk

    So, what happened to Evan? Nothing recent on any of his sites. Always enjoyed his adventures...

    Thanks for the pin-poke guys!

    It's been quite a while since I've put up anything about my biking. The ADV crew has fallen off the radar of daily life, although not intentionally. However, I hear someone heard my ADV handle at a moto-cafe here in Guatemala recently and knew who I was - that made me feel pretty cool.

    I made it to Panama, back up to Guatemala, and have had a hell of a time along the way. The "trip" continues and I'll catch up here eventually.

    I'm currently preparing for the last race of the Guatemalan National Enduro Series.

    Me last race:

    Cool stuff man! Some of my best memories are from riding in gnarly mud on bad ass trails in tropical countries, if only for a day or week here and there. I bought the Buccaneer from you a few years ago and sold it about two years later, in the midst of working in a cubicle for 6 years. Got laid off and figuring out my next chapter, and could possibly use your web expertise.

    Years ago a Guatemalan guy wanted to buy an 85 xr600 I was selling to take back home for racing up Volcano. He kept trying to offer me $300, so no sale, but it sounded like they love those big XRs down there!

    Funny I look at your xr650r page sometimes.. noticed no updates on any of your sites....

    Figured you had died or were locked up in a central American jail...

    Happy riding:clap

    I just read all 25 pages of your ride report. Did you make it out of Guatemala? Are you among the living?

    Great ride report, it kept me going while working and the drudgery of school. :rofl
