    Smile new to moa & America

    hi everyone,
    I'm Bob Denman and have just renewed my membership after a lapse of 2 years. I ride a R65GS which is ex. French Gendarmarie of road traning bike.
    Myself and two others are about to embarque on our journey of a liftime, We are shipping our bikes to Canada and after a little bit of exploring British Columbia we are heading south through the USA and on to the southern most tip of the Ameican continent. we plan to take a year as we want to see all the good sights along the way.
    Here is a link to our blog which at the moment only shows the troubles we are having with the bikes.

    We shoud be in Yellowstione Park in early june and getting to San Francisco iin early July. then moving on to Mexico for August. I have a date there with my wife as it is our 40th. wedding anniversary and we are meeting in the Cancun area on the 9th. September. Hope I make there in time.
    we will try and fit in some of the rallies but it appears we will miss the big one this time round.
    hoping to meet some members along the way.
    regards
    Bob

    Looks to be a trip of a lifetime , Bob. Best of luck to you.

    If I can be of any help along the way or offer any route suggestions, plaase don't hesitate to ask. I'm sure that goes for many others on here as well.

    edit: Funny - I'm off to the UK on May 7th for a couple of weeks of riding in the Lake District, bit of Scotland and Wales. I'll be sure to wave as I pass you in the airport.

    Bob, it looks like an epic journey is about to take place. I like the bike you've prepared! Your blog is now listed among my RSS feeds so I won't miss anything.

    There are two roads in life; the twisty one is vastly more fun.
