Let's just say it's been a rough six months and the situation is not destined to improve anytime soon. That said, I sold the 2006 Kawasaki Vulcan 500, went bike-less for a couple months, bought myself a 1971 Honda CB500, couldn't afford to attend OX11, and just when the getting was good and my hands reeked of gasoline and carb cleaner, my own economic meltdown hits. I had to offload my second bike this year. So the two-wheeled adventures aren't really shaping up in 2011, but I've got some time left to end on a win-win. We'll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, you'll just have to read some musings from me, provided I keep up with the program.
Motorcycling friend Nicole (aka Nicomama on ADV forums) was nice enough to pull together a snapshot of our December enjoyment of the travelling international motorcycle show. I pulled her in to help the ladies !represent! in our little corner of the Long Beach convention center. Read her ADV thread of the show here. And don't forget to scroll down to the video. I'm interviewed about my crazy travels toward the end.
