    Actually I probably could have rode today, temp made it up to 40 but so did the wind. It was so cold here last week though that I just couldn't stand seeing my baby setting out in that cold garage so I had to try and see how hard it was to get through the door (36")....not bad at all actually, just had to wiggle the bars through a little. No, I'm not married.

    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.

    It is probably against the law. A gasoline vehicle in a closed area could lead to a fire or at least contribute to accellerating a fire. If someone died you would probably be charged with Manslaughter.

    2001 R1150gs

    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.

    Wade, all I can say is dreams don't happen unless you set goals and work towards them. 22 years ago I joined the MOA and an overnight/weekend ride to a BMW rally was a true adventure. Over the years the distance and time away grew, I learned to travel cheaply, and gained more confidence. A lot of that came from meeting other/more experienced riders at BMW rallies, and listening to their stories.

    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.

    Thank you Mike. Praise from fellow riders is as high as it can get. Sharing the joy of traveling is one thing that has kept me going thru many a hard time.

    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.

    And here I was wondering how you toured China solo and un-guided...till I went to your last link.

    Seems that it still isn't possible to do so. What is the issue with the Chinese...do they think that have all these top secret secrets we are going to steal and copy?

    Solo? No. Guiding? Yes

    China is China, and they do not like people wandering around their country unescorted. We did meet two riders (Americans) in Uzbekistan who actually did fly their own bikes into China, ride west thru China, and were on their way to Istanbul. Both were wealthy beyond my understanding, and had spend years and tens of thousands of dollars to find the right Chinese agent who could get the correct approvals for import. Each had to post almost $25,000 cash bond for their bike, and then they still were required to hire a government "guide", and driver/car for escort. They had to pay $100 a day for the service, and pay their (guide and driver) room and board for each day on the road. That is just not cost effective for less than large groups, unless you have deep pockets.

    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.

    A Pass

    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.

    It should have it's own thread.
    Hate to see it get mixed up in the other great shots...
