    Exactly. The AAs are being pushed out by the Caucasians. Who knew that would ever happen....

    I just came across your report Wesley, and I gotta hand it to you, this is one of a kind. You've had me in stitches numerous times, in particular the "Erzberg" tale:rofl

    You've got the "go with the flow" lifestyle nailed, and it truly is a special ability you have to be able to roll into any town, any gas station, and next thing you know, you're having tea or vodka or whatever with a new friend.

    This is getting a bit gushy, but I have to admire your compassion and interest in other people. Helping the family with the blown out tire, and taking the father back to the nearest town, picking up the midnight wanderer.. these are not things that all of us would do. Mega props to you!

    I usually ride alone, and will always meet a few people for a good chat along the way.. but typically keep to my self more or less. But you've taught me a lesson: strangers are just friends who you have not met yet.

    I don't have the gift of the gab like you must do, but need to put my self out there for these chance encounters.

    Thank you for all your words so far, and looking forward to the next installment once you have the time :clap

    Hey Wes, have you ever considered starting a UK based adventure bike company?
    Seriously, you could easily get business partners, & maybe sponsorship (cheap/lease/free) bikes from Suzuki, or even the others if you approach them with your plan & visions.................Just a thought.....Great RR BTW mate!:clap

    Thanks, Wesley, for getting a continued edition of your report to us. I'm always happy when I see a report from you on Monday morning as that is when the weekly subscriptions come out.
