    A lot of your faithful followers would appreciate it! Don't make them change the title of your thread to, "Quit our blog, sold our home, gone riding..."

    Gene and Neda, Thank you VERY much for taking the world along with you during your adventure. I have spent nearly 2 months reading report during every free moment *cough* at work *cough*.
    You have opened my eyes to so many places and so much and I am very thankful.

    I hope your travels continue, and you that you can find the motivation to blog for us dreamers.

    This picture reminds me to let you guys know that Neda just got her new bike.

    Here's a pic of us with our new rides. More pics to come...

    Seems like border closures and lack of "hitting the road" would have been an optimal time to catch up :augie

    Dear ADV-Peeps-Who-Follow-Our-Thread,

    Was wondering if you could help Neda out. She has been searching for a red BMW Airflow Jacket that looks like her old one:

    The current Airflow Jacket for women doesn't come in the red colour, so she has been searching for used or NOS.

    BMW has a few generations of this jacket, it doesn't matter which one, just that it is women's only and that it is red and a size 40 Euro. There are a couple on Fleabay that are size 38, but those are too small.

    If you can keep your eyes and ears peeled for her and let us know if you find one online, it would be much appreciated!

    Here are other versions of the jacket that would be okay as well:
