As a bastard child of ADV I have no home , but you guys have always made me feel welcome. Lance looking at that pictures makes me hurt. All of the pictures I had seen makes it look like a light hearted run in the mud. Damn the look on your face says it all. Now I see why you were trainning for the event. Most would not make it ,me included. Hats of to you. Not sure what is going on around here but I do not want to be a part of it . I think we are all here to have fun ride bikes and learn from each others experiences. Which I have been more of a taker than a giver. So that being said thanks to all who have helped me figure out how to keep my bike running how to keep the rubber on the ground and where the good stuff is at. So lets get back to why we are here.
