    Cool pictures, Ben! I am sorry I can't make the presentation.

    Do you ever speak at Cycle Specialties in Modesto? I know they have presentations like that sometimes, as well as group adv rides.

    There is something shaping up for the first weekend in August in Los Angeles. It's not quite firmed up just yet, but I'll keep you posted.

    Hey guys,

    I'll be giving a talk at on August 23 at the Carson Valley / Lake Tahoe Adventure Motorcycle Ride & Rendezvous. It's going to be a spin on my normal travel presentation. This event does cost money but is part of the much larger weekend festivities. Here's a snippet from the event organizers:

    Time change: I'll be presenting at the Carson Valley / Lake Tahoe Moto on Saturday August 24 at 4pm. It won't be my standard "ride-report-style" presentation and instead I'll be sharing stories of all the mistakes I made a long the way in a presentation titled "I wish I'd known that!" It's great preparation if you're planning a big trip. I promise lots of Laughs, a bunch of Wows, a few Oh My Gods and at least one This Is So Damn Embarrassing, I Can't Believe He's Telling This Story In Public...

    Hope to see you there! :wave

    Man you gotta come to SoCal.

    Try Claremont library

    Perhaps Irv Seaver BMW

    Or at a push our back yard.

    I don't really have any influence in connections.

    I guess you would just canvass motorcycle stores. BMW dealerships seem to be up for stuff.

    I don't know what avenue to pursue at the library, I'll go ask.
