    Whatttssss up dudes?!?

    Got a pm from a member here saying welcome back, figured someone drug this thread out of the basement. Thank you Particle man! haha.

    Everything on my end is great. Got a great wife and stepson, a cool pack of dogs and a new house to move into this weekend. Still think about the ride everyday. I've been on a few rides and camping a couple of times since....but nothing like being out on the road for those few months. Don't regret any second of it and never will. Good times.

    Thanks for dropping me a line!

    CONGRATULATIONS on finding that special woman and new family. Your journey was an inspiration for many of us. I wish I had an experience like your before getting married and started a family. Thanks again for one of the best rides I never took.
    Cheers

    I came across the Kaneman adventure today and read a few pages, very interesting. I see that he started out on a ZRX and then moved on to a Strom. Without going through hundreds of post could someone explain why?

    I was with you from the first post. Glad life is treating you well. I knew there were still some great folks left all along and I know you were as happy to meet them as they were to meet you. I enjoyed the ride report very much and was sorry about the ass hats. There will always be such people and it's a shame. Long life, good health, and wonderful times ahead for you and your family.:clap :thumbup

    It was good to 'ride along' via the reports. Glad to read you're doing well, and wish you and yours all the best in the future!

    This thread pulled me into the world that is Advrider.
    I think the same thing kind of went down in fishfund's RR as well. Doing a RR on the road vs after you get back is how the drama sets in.. especially when money is involved.
    Legendary stuff.

    Well I have found this thread about two weeks ago and have been reading it off and on since. I love it. I am on page 148 and I will keep on reading. I am retired so when I take off on my bike I do not have to be back on certain day unless my wife asked me. It is fantastic to free of work. :D

    I've been lurking/posting here for awhile and finally found this one. Loving reading it... it is great to be able to experience some of the moments on the road. It is like a second family - but this time they understand the call of the road... congrats man, and best of luck with all of life's changes.

    Thanks!

    p.s. made it to page 50... only 300+ pages to go. :D

    Great ride Citizen Kane!

    I wish you had slammed your computer shut and gone on the ride. But I hear you on the negative vibes. It can erode the positive energy a lot faster than one might think. I've dealt with it personally before.

    Anyway, I did have a lot of fun burning away the hours reading about your trip. If you read this, you should come up to Vermont this summer! I never heard it mentioned once in your plans! I'm telling you man, it's nice up here in the summer.

    See ya man,

    glad things are going great for you kaneman

    Your ride gave me the kick I needed to hop on a plane to Europe, buy a bike, and head out for a tour of the Balkans in 2007.
    Best thing I ever did.

    To Kaneman:

    Reading your journey has been like a book and its been so hard to put down for the last two weeks. I am writing this at 4:30AM in Nor Cali. I do realize that its been over a few years since your journey but I am sure that to this day someone like me that enjoys riding as much as you do is being inspired by your life and the time spent on the road. I am sad you never made it AK but it sounds like you got everything right where it should be.

    If you ever make it NOR CALI, Sacramento Area look me up I owe you a beer and you owe me vizine because my eyes have been plastered to my computer monitor for over 5 hours now.

    That's the "sign" Kaneman adopted on his trip.

    put something on and stay in that position.
    the ZRX crapped out and then, dude, this is a not story to tell in Ride Reports. search for Kaneman on this site and you'll see how the ride... wasn't accepted well by a large number of inmates. all that banter was moved to jo momma because we're not allowed to make those sort of comments here. or i can PM you the details as i see it as well.

    speaking of guys not being able to make it to alaska because they only had a few thousand dollars...

    what ever happened to cheap aussie c*nt? (who did make it. and then some)
