    A wonderful trip, thanks for taking us along.

    I see you have been back for about a year now, and it looks like all is still going well for you.

    Will you be planning another?

    Best Wishes,

    :clap Have been following along with your report since the beginning. I can't say that I have not been a bit envious at all for the great adventure that you have shared with us. What an epic trip, Bravo.


    So whats next? :D

    This was big, and wonderful, and fun........ :clap:clap:clap
    So many words to describe this adventure.
    I'm sad that the ride is over.:cry
    Don't let the normal everyday humdrum get you down.
    It will be hard to match that first year.
    I hope and pray that you two have a wonderful life
    together. It sure has a great start.
    God bless you.

    What a fantastic trip and adventure in so many ways.

    That last picture sums up the two of you, the bikes, and that could be any city/town in the background that you have taken us to.

    Thanks for all the time and effort it took to post this epic journey.:clap

    Now I won't have my favorite ride report to read every thursday and friday at noon :cry

    It was a helluva ride report, really really really good stuff! This is the kinda ride I want to do someday.

    I hope you have a great life together, you two!

    (I also hope we have some sort of epilogue to see how life has been for you two since the end of the ride :D)

    Thanks for the epic NA tour !

    Truly epic ride! I've been following this from the beginning with my morning coffee, and late night drinks, I hate to see it end. Thanks so much for taking us along for the ride.

    I provided Amanda her first of many tire changes on this epic adv. It was a great day on Long Island for all. I hope the handle bar covers worked, I think they did as I keep seeing them appear in photos along the way. What a great sorry, now you have to close it out with a quick update what has happened since you returned home a year ago.

    All the best Robert G.

    Like so many, I would happily keep following this epic journey for a long time to come but somehow life often gets in the way. Count me among those who would like to hear at least a brief update on the past year. After being a very small part of the adventure and following it for two years, there is going to be an empty spot here on ADVrider for me now. If the winter winds blow too cold, you know where to get away for a while, the welcome mat is out for you.
