    I KNOW IM AN ASSHOLE!

    Interestingly enough, once I got off the bike, I stopped thinking about bike related things, including ADVrider.

    Apologies for letting you guys hang in the wind. Another bummer is that I lost a bunch of photos (I backed up most) but lost oct of the stuff from Buenos Aires to when I picked up the bike.

    Let's just say Buenos Aires was awesome, and everything I expected. Ended up hooking with Sarah and Malcolm (the aussie couple that found me broken down on the side of the road in Patagonia) and we rented an apartment.

    Met a gorgeous 22 year old Argentinian girl and had a real good time with her. Would love to share some indecent photos of her with you guys but they were part of the photos I lost!!!!

    Spent some time with my folks, shooting guns and catching up.

    Went and picked up my bike in LAX and it was painless. The crate was in great shape and the bike came out as good as it came in. Unfortunately it's still not in riding condition bc I'm waiting for an order from ktmcyclehutt and they are seriously lagging.

    I'm the meantime, I'm writing this from Portland OR as I make my way to Whistler for some downhill mountain biking action, before heading out to Speedweek in Utah and going to Burning Man for 3 weeks.

    So - clearly the nomadic lifestyle is not over, and I'm having a blast doing it.

    Subaru and bike on the way to Whistler....

    Nice to see that life moves on!:thumb

    By the way, I got myself some 17000 kms out of the Heidenau K60 mostly on tarmac so I´m more than satisfied, just came back from North Cape in Norway!

    Long time ago mate, sometimes you just have to know when to let go.

    Don't worry, there's a new pair of beautiful eyes I'm really looking forward to seeing again soon...
