    I'm embarrassed to say I found this ride report, that I just read in one sitting, from the other that is currently stuck at the Covid-19 border:lol3:lol3 Thanks Ed and rad. Can't wait to read your other reports. Not sure how I missed them

    Took me about six months to get through your previous reports, start to finish. Enjoyed them all. Now,that I'm caught up I like to check in every month or so so I can get a good read in. I've said it before, but thank you for sharing your life with us.

    Thanks for this....hit me funny and almost covered this device in coffee.
    Reading in your reports always...ALWAYS...put me in a better mood. Thank you for sharing your writing talent and time for putting these RRs together.
    If I ever cross paths with you... I will gladly buy you a beer or 2.

    As for how long to read your RRs? About a month after I joined here, I started in on the first. Still getting caught up ... Worth every hour reading.

    I found your RR back around Thailand or India or Himalaya mountains or somewhere else I will never get to go. Your reports are the main reason I come to this page and I get upset when you don't update them. What do you expect me to do first thing in the morning when I get to my desk? Work? How rude.:lol3 I also read it all and usually like the posts but I don't really have anything interesting to say so I just read and dream. I have even been in bed at night with my wife reading her your ride reports so she could enjoy it with me and periodically she asks me about you. Where you are and how the hunting is going. I tried to get you a speaking gig at our local BMW shop last time that I know of you coming this way but it didn't work out. Never did get to meet you but I am still here reading your RR's and dreaming of riding in far away places. I still have some of your old reports to read but I count on you to keep your ride reports updated and provide my reading. I am not on social media so I can't follow you there therefore your RR's are important to me and so many more. OK now lets get this thing updated for us folks that are needing our fix! I am needing to get through Haiti and DR so you can take me to South Korea or wherever the hell you are now.

    Guess this ride report is done. Wonder if he will do more or just leave it to social media? Looking like he wont be back.

    It does appear that Ed left town and isn't coming back. He will be missed.

    yeah i think it flat out sucks. i truly enjoyed his RRs and antics. Ed always seems to find the women and the magic string story was great to read. Guess I will stick to Joe Motos reports and the local section of the forums.

    Ed is abroad in Thailand, he got stuck there when the country locked down. He’s thriving and enjoying life as he does. I recommend you follow on his Instagram and Facebook pages for more Up to date information.

    as to treatment, he has a pretty thick skin, gives as good as he gets and generally keeps a smile! He’ll be back, just don’t know exactly when/where.
