    It's that weird time of year when you can snowboard in the morning, and ride your motorcycle in the afternoon.

    Found a way to combine both:

    Not to be a turd, but you may be ready to actually learn to ski... just sayin' ;-)

    I have this weird thing about being able to control both my active edges at the same time...

    Speaking of snow, I asked Neda what she wanted for her birthday, she said she wanted to do some snow biking.

    So, Neda's bike is on its last legs. We've been sinking quite a lot into repair costs for the privilege of keeping her RTW bike running. With almost 150K kms on the dial, I think it's served her well.

    Anyway, yesterday we put her on this for a test ride:

    She likes it. Could this be her ride for the next leg of our travels?

    Stay tuned!

    Has that bike been crashed? Looks like it on the tank.

    Looks good. There is one of these entered in this year’s Iron Butt race. The name suites your adventure; Pan America

    Harley should give her one as an RTW ambassador. Seriously, she deserves it. Look at how many fans she has across all the forums & around the world. She has a pretty good photographer and PR guy as a sidekick too. :thumb
