    Sorry I have not been able to upload the photos. I will try to take new ones with a different camera or use a different computer tomorrow.
    Wingincamera- we met at Chelan last year I think. We were the couple that did the video recording for you. We hope to get there again this year but will depend on weather. We currently still have 3 feet of snow and are fervently hoping spring will arrive soon!

    I feel for you. We had a little snow and rain this winter, but seeing what the rest of the country had to deal with we can only count our blessings. I bet snow shovels are in short supply. We do remember you and your great taste in bikes and sidecars :D
    Hope to see you again in Chelan.

    Hi All,

    Here's some variety for you. A BMW 1150R set-up for back country. It's done all around Mexico and South America. Heading to Africa next.

    Ride Well,
    Coach
