Thats great Barry, keep her inside,
I went on a trip last August and brought mine into my hotel room, no problem getting her in but when I left in the morning I was chased by one of the maids, she was pissed, yelling the whole time, "you can't bring motorcycle in room" over and over. I laughed all the way out the parking lot.
My well worn 2001 R1150GS at the Kazakh version of the Grand Canyon, near the Chinese border. When she and I departed on the trip, she had 103,000 miles on her. When we got home, she had 125,000 miles and 21 new countries under her saddle. I love my GS.
That is so freakin cool, I wish I had the time and finacial freedom to do that.
you da man
In 2003 I retired, the kids were out of the house, no-one was in college, our folks were healthy, and I had the world's most loving and understanding wife. The perfect scenario. Traveling by MC doesn't have to be expensive. Teresa and I have ridden all over Europe two-up and averaged under $100 a day. It can be done.
I wish you a great adventure on every ride. The MOA has been the gateway to my riding dreams for years.

Jeff , While I am not and could not be a world traveler , I so enjoyed the China journals and all accounts of the trip. The photographs are supurb.
I will likely go back and look at all of them over and over. Also sorry for your loss.
Thanks for posting.
One of these days I might post a Ride story here on the MOA forum too. I've been wanting to do that, but I think I need to go back and finish the last portion of the world trip first. Don't know if I can do it yet, even though it's been over a year and a half. It is really hard to go back to that moment in time.
Oh well. I'm not ashamed to say that I've ridden to some incredible parts of the world as a guide for others. I didn't mention it because I didn't want people to think I was shilling for a particular company. That's why I never mention who I worked for. This website is for sharing the joy of traveling/riding, and not for commercial exploitation.
And this forum was supposed to be about posting a pic of your oilhead, not about trips. I apologize to everyone for the hijack.
I can really only speak for myself, but I would imagine most everyone would be willing to give you a pass for posting here, because like most, I have been given the opportunity to enjoy, although vicariously, your travels....THANKS!
I think these would make great reading in the ON.
