    Congratulations on passing the boards. My acupuncturist is also a ND and is the best doc I've ever had.

    I have the same bike, it's almost identical too! :D
    Good to see one getting some good use.
    I had to raise my headlight up though, got tired of the crazy glare from the front fender. Used some scraps laying around to make it work. Works a lot better, but looks a lot worse. :rofl
    Looking forward to pics of the rest of the trip!

    Nice to see you got off the compound, Lassen would be insane, you think you could ride a motorcycle all the way up that trail to the peak? Probably illegal like most good things. The closest I've come to GSin these days is my GF's Vespa, which I've been since baned from....I got pulled over on it the other day here in Brooklyn riding wheelies. When I get back out west back roads all the way to Bend, Or sounds like the way to go.

    I have a technical suggestion for you: Planter boxes with a with fresh veggies and herbs growing mounted on the bike. Yeah?

    Okay, I admit it, I'm a beer drinking bacon eater. I'll be interested in undrstanding your experience and abilities to deal with caloric debt you're gonna rack up.

    :ear and probably :tb in anticipation.

    Hi, very nice scenery - but are there no offroad tracks?
    It all looks so flat and paved.
    The DR could do more than this. :D

    Now we're talking, a freshly minted wholistic healer biting the head of a bird in the forest. What could be more natural than that?

    Cool RR thanks. I like the foraging for a change of pace from what I usually do (freeze dried simulated food:D ). And more inspiration to get back there and see more.
