    Kaneman,
    Welcome back, I hope you are well. I started reading your thread over on Cycle Forums. Because of it I found ADVrider & Two Wheeled Texans both of which I enjoy very much. I don't what the critics in JoMomma said it was still a great ride and adventure. It is my hope and prayer that you are able to continue it one day by riding to Alaska. By reading your and others ride reports it has given me the courage to post a few small ones my self. They are not the big adventures that you and others have had, but we enjoyed them.
    I wish you well and hope to see you someday at some of the Two Wheeled Texan events in the DFW area.
    Marty

    Same here. I don't know why some folks want to keep it buried. It is a great ride report. It introduced a lot of people to ADV. Glad it keeps popping up every once in a while.

    To read this report u need the new turnoff everyone posts but the OP add on(grease monkey), can get thru it pretty quick.
    I have not heard anything about it before as I don't read US reports then it popped up on 1st page.
    Classic he was desperately on the rebound from the start and seeking an instant family it looks like he got it a chick with 2 kids already.
    If u want to stay on the road longer maybe don't eat out 3 meals a day i work a good job and wouldn't do that at home let alone on the road. All your savings only kept u on the road 1 month crazy.
    Would like to know has the Champion reciprocated let other ADV peeps stay at his Trailer and pay for their food?
    Entertaining will look out for you and your new bride in a few months on Jerry Springer

    I wonder how many ride reports didn't get written because they were afraid of getting treated like Kaneman was.

    The Kaneman ride report was the 1st one to catch my attention here at ADVrider. Was just a great read and if I ride just half the places he did and meet half the cool people he did, I will die a happy man.
