    John maybe you can post up here when you start a new RR so we all know? Happy exploring and safe travels on 4 wheels.

    Mr Downs,

    I've been reading since your dentistry trip to central America (I hope that was you and I'm not giving you credit for someone else's fine report). Sad to see this one come to a close, but I have every suspicion a new one will pick up in a few months after recovery.

    Enjoy being a car bum instead of a moto-bum for a while. I will look forward to future installments. Heal well, and enjoy whatever is coming your way. :)

    Be safe.

    Well darn it all, I was afraid something like this might happen. Sure, we're all going to feel sorry for ourselves now that this blog is ending, and we don't know where to look for our next entertainment, But the important thing is for you to knit and get on with your life in your next adventure. And, knowing you (I feel I know you) after reading all your blogs at least 3 times, completely, I know, with the way you look at life, your already looking forward to the next completely different type of adventure, with a beautiful companion to boot. Happy Trails, George

    Sounds like you have a great recovery period planned John. Some guys know how to live! BTW somewhere here or on your blog you mentioned the "Adventure Rider Radio" podcast. I've been a regular weekly listener. Thanks for the suggestion. I'm looking forward to checking your blog and to a future 2 wheel ride report here.
    Happy travels!

    Hermano Juan,

    You dog, get us completely addicted to this one and yet again bail on us.
    Seems to be a habit with you, although mishaps happen.
    The best part about this is you have companionship while recuperating.
    That will not only make things easier but much more enjoyable. I'm sure Tetiana
    will be a task master in getting you back in riding form.
    I'll jump over to your blog for updates on your progress. I'm sure you will be entertaining to keep track of even in a cage.

    Bien Viaje.

    Hermano Jota.

    P.S. Hola Tetiana! Thanks for taking care of mi hermano Juan. He can be a hanfdful as I'm sure you already know.
