    Life is short. The hell with brain injuries. I will hunt you down in the states when I get back. I can tell from your ride report that you are a tough sob like me ( I'm just guessing but maybe a problem with authority?) and nothing will stand in your way if you set your mind to it. Kerncountykid does South America has a nice ring to it. No?

    Your ADVbud,
    Tio Juanito

    And PS. You write kickass ride reports. I want to see more. Bring it.

    This bike has been west. All the way to Hawaii. It was bought by my dad and mom in Hawaii in 1967 then flown back to the mainland in 69. They then rode the bike across country back to western PA. Dad then had it in Vermont and my uncle rode it around in the early 70's.

    From 1975 until 2005 it sat until dad gave it to me while I lived in Illinois. I got it running again, then tore it down for a restoration.

    I ended up moving to Virginia and the bike came along in pieces in Rubbermaid totes.

    With dad's help I got it back together an running. I don't get to ride it nearly as much as I want, but...

    Just stumbled onto this ride report today, and got sucked in by not only the writing, which is exceptional, but by the OP's gift of seeing the world in his unique way, which is also exceptional. Well done, young man.

    The pictures of the young men in "basic" motorcycle gear is so pure and innocent, with a touch of naivety. I could easily see him in 35 years still touring, but on a BMW LT, wearing a Stitch, as tends to happen to young motorcycle adventurers as they age.

    Then to learn of what befell Trevor, and his (and his mother's - let's not forget her; she's a victim too)... well, I wiped a tear or two reading all the related threads.

    Trevor: It is easy to let negativity barge in and take over. Don't let it. Focus on what you have, not what you don't.

    Now, I need to go buy a tee shirt....
