    Quite a few of you have commented on how much you've enjoyed the experience of simply listening to a story on this thread (it is quite a departure from our ADD/hyper-media fueled culture). I hesitate a little bit to post this here simply because it's not Ned telling the story, but I'm sure that he can relate to it in his current routine. It's not a rally story, but it is a motorcycling story that many of you can probably identify with. I hope you enjoy it.

    Dood you are almost there. I have ridden a KLR from Lima to Santiago and back, it felt like forever. Only 3 days out. Ride on Brother Ride on.:pynd It is in the books. Enjoy the camp out:kumbaya and enjoy the vastness of South America for what it is, IMMENSE. I am proud to know you and to know that I had a small part in making it your REALITY. I shaved my noggin the first day of your dream (20in. ponytail) and I don't regret it. Happy Atacaman Trails, you ROCK.:clap:clap:clap:rayof:pynd

    Wow!

    :poser

    I'm just getting caught up after my 50hr week from hell. You guys are the bestest! What a way to start my weekend, tears of joy after listening to Ned's "Dakar moment" and now more tears from laughing my arse off.

    Ned and his slightly crazy friends are the best. :raabia

    which means----translated----something like:

    No thanks, I'll stay with you a coward, tomorrow I go to the hairdresser cut, but only, not to cut!
    I promise I'll let them cut short, however, ????

    Inmate RhodeHazard created that awesome artistic print of Ned that was posted a few days ago, and has made it available for purchase -- $10 of each print ($14) will go straight to support Ned's Neduro to Dakar Fund.

    8x10" Prints are available for purchase at Ernie's site, http://www.motorbikeartist.com/


    Scroll down one frame and "add to cart". Put some fuel in Ned's tank, and get an awesome bit of memorabilia to put on the wall. Bring it for Ned to sign when he does a presentation near you. :ricky


    Thank You, Ernie! :clap :clap :bow

    Na dann wuensche ich dir viel vergnuegen.
    Vielleicht sollte ich ja meinen rechten Zehen rasieren - aus Solidaritaet natuerlich.

    But now back to our regular scheduled program where our man Scott is now rubbing his head wondering how much crap he's gonna hear from the non-believers tomorrow.

    So, I know this thread isn't about politics and all, but is anybody else writing Neduro in on their 2012 presidential election ballot this year?
