    I love my Trailstand. Has been used countless times and have used it on many other people’s bikes, helping them out along the way, including folks carrying boat anchor center stands that still wouldn’t allow them to raise the front wheel without adding more weight to the rear. I’ve even used the outer shaft as a punch to remove wheel bearings.

    Am satisfied.
    Just polished off an awesome burger. 1/3 lb. bacon lettuce tomato onion (also chopped and mixed into the meat) and cheese. Local corn on the cob and some Brazilian whiskey (less than $3.00 US/litre) and coke.
    Could certainly be worse

    As a late comer to the party I just caught up after binge reading >150 ‘pages’. I enjoy your unique writing style and optimism through difficult situations. Stay safe. I’ll be following till you’re back in Ohio ——-

    I appreciate the kind words, and checked out a while back your 2017 Grand Adventure tour with your wife. Great stuff and lots of awesome photography. Am jealous of you and anyone else who has someone they love that’s willing to ride along and share in the experience. While riding solo has it’s perks, I can only imagine having someone that close along for the ride.
    Hopefully I’ll be able someday to ride this baby all the way back to Ohio!

    It's just so sad --- how you're suffering in this lock down.

    Still seems to be available, unless I am missing some nuance of design change:
    http://www.endurostar.com/

    I have one and love it.

    Yeah, it looks like someone started supplying it again, though this is slightly different than mine, which has a rectangular foot and a L shaped top piece. I can't identify where Enduro Star is (address).

    It’s not my first choice, but what I like isn’t readily available. I could go on about the at-times hilarious search myself and others I’ve ridden with have made for decent herb along the way. The stories involve gay-dating apps, weird encounters with shady characters and all kinds of comical shenanigans. I know I’ve tried to be a bastion of honesty here, but some things are best left unsaid, and kept relegated for private conversations lol.
    And yeah, cheap liquor helps at times.

    In this aspect, once you cross the Southern US boarder it is like returning to High School days. Drives me nuts.

    Its the start of another day here at Praia do Estaleiro Brazil. Today I’ll pay the rent for another month at Pousada Dona Emma. That should get me through to my 60th birthday. That’ll be three birthdays on the road!

    You are really roughing it! Happy upcoming 60th, keep hanging in there. We are pulling for you.

    How I hate those east facing beaches and waking early to see their sunrises, how terrible. But west-facing beaches, yeah baby!

    Your lack of sleep didn’t keep you from taking an excellent group of photos! I could almost feel the sand between my toes and the gradual warming of the sun. Nice!
