    Charley Boorman was at the Toronto M/C show last weekend. I met him shook his hand. He looked like he still haden't had a bath since he got home. A really nice guy with a marvellous sense of humor. He is doing the Dakar in January and already has broken his collar bone in a high speed crash. I bought his book and got his autograph. Made my weekend.

    Other than being in two accidents in Calgary in the same day, it was a pretty uneventfull trip through North America.....I'd be in a hurry to get home too. Would have been safer to take this road into Calgary:

    I also met him at the show in T.O. He's a funny guy.I asked him about his helmet (Arai). He told me that he liked it alot. I think I may buy one but I still can't find any deals on them. Anyone here knows of any place?:ear

    Check Ebay, a dealer in Texas named Will's Garage is selling new Arai XD's for $350. I received mine a while ago and it's great.

    Not to hijack the thread, but has anyone asked [them] or have any clues how they rigged up their iPod on the bike, for power and stuff? I'd dearly like to know, since the iPod is a hard drive and it doesn't like shakes and shudders and bumps...
