This work is going to be quite expensive and it means we just don't have the cash needed to fly over to the states - not to mention the loss of income as I am self-employed.
To say I am disappointed is a vast understatement. This was one of the most exciting prospective trips in my lifetime. Perhaps next year.

Oh BUMMER Andy and Sheila... we too were looking forward seeing you again. It has been too long.....

FL, CA & everywhere in between...
I am getting more excited with every passing day. I final got some Givi side cases for my bike... and much to Richard's dismay I plan on installing them myself this weekend. While my Honda is not a BMW and my Givi bags are not Jessie Bags... I think my new setup will be just as good as my last... and while life has matched on and I have allowed too much BULL SH$# to enter back into my life... I feel that sense of adventure screaming inside me "I can bring you peace and more meaning to your life"... I am chomping at the bit to get back out there and so looking forward to this UN Rally!

Sounds like you had rotator cuff surgery. Been there done that! Hurts like h..l doesn't it.
Mine was a bad one and it took me 3 months and I was back on the bike. Hang in there.
See you on the road.

I've booked all my rooms for the trips to/from and of course also the room at Red Lodge. I'm locked in, my routes are set, and now it's starting to get exciting. Loading the GPS tonight.
