    Hi ADV Grifter, yeah, we're doing a short talk Saturday night after the happy hour and our full presentation Sunday afternoon. We're looking forward to it.

    No book for sale yet, although we're going to have some of our photo prints and we've just designed and had printed a 10th Anniversary T-shirt.

    We'll let you know what we thought of the expo, but for now we're just excited to see some old friends, hang out and have a few beers.

    Cheers
    Simon

    Congratulations Simon and Lisa, wish we could have stayed for the big celebration. We were told the ten year celebration would be there at Overland Expo this afternoon ,Sunday 19th,

    We are back home in Pagosa Springs, the big hot springs are always open and should you ever get this way, you have a place to stay and also enjoy the healing effects of the hot spirngs.

    ciao, gale/sandy

    hi guys...well the last two weeks, since arriving here from New Zealand, have been (surprisingly) busy!
    Simon and I will be celebrating our 10 years on the road with a series of presentations, initially around the west coast. We really hope that many of you can make it to one of them and share with us our decade on the road.
    yes, 1P8RIOT...this is where you can get one of 'those' t-shirts! :D

    Heres a list of where the first few presentations will be held:


    and .......more to come.

    Can you believe that since seeing you all last time, Simon and I have travelled for a further 5 years! Time really does fly.



    hope to see old and new friends alike.

    Lisa

    You're right, Long Beach BMW is my local shop and they have an outstanding group of people there. I may be in Texas spoiling my grand kids that week. I'll aim for one of the earlier ones to make sure I don't miss you guys.:freaky

    ...evening all,

    just a quick note to say hi. We're still in Vegas and waiting to get a new tire onto Lisa 650 tomorrow over at the dealership. We had a blast Friday evening at BMW Motorcycles of Las Vegas and the crowd that turned up and braved the heat were great.
