    Contact me w/regards to your bandito video.

    You ride well, but,
    You need help with the vids dude.

    For a small portion of your retirement portfolio, I can help you.

    Before I help though, I will need to know if you even have a retirement
    portfolio. It will help me to adjust the pricing. I'm sure you understand...

    See you tomorrow night??? Be there or be square buddy.

    Hey, what happened to you last night? Traffic scare you off? Leave 'em side bags at home so's you can lane split that beast.

    Re: Closing of California Map Center. The only applicable Mexican tidbit to our plans that remained was a map of the state of Chihuahua. I picked it up. Got a book on Western Mojave SUV trails (very applicable to our style of biking), and a book on the Mojave Trail (sweet history, maps, and route guides) perfect for the sand loving biker. Oh, and a book on cultivating native California plants.

    Hmm.. I could get next to that. Got a date in mind yet?
    Long way down.. what, about 500 mi from the border to Tortugas? I was down there once in the 70's. Road was all dirt from 1 then, but I understand that parts of it are paved now. There's gas there, and a couple of hotels, I think. A surfing bud mentioned there's an island off shore where the surf can get pretty big.
