Did a ride across northern France on a K1600 my two bits.

Well I got my 14 RT back two days before I hopped on a plane to London to pick up a K1600....he was out of RT's...to ride across nothern france and Belgium...no plan just a few ideas where to go. After an open mind....love the RT even more......

If you are bored the tale of me adventures thus far have a few entries to make...... http://blog.travelpod.com/travel-blo...vy/8/tpod.html

Seriously good writing! Got about halfway through, will finish later.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

A random choice . . . just read NUTS!

I have an uncle who was in the Battle of the Bulge. I finally got him to share his feelings about that experience. It is hard to imagine being there.

Will start at the beginning later today. Thank you for writing this blog.
