Re: Doug Sorchilla responsible for desert heat!

Gilles, Doug is on the road home, the long way round via Seattle.
But Happy Birthday, Doug wherever you are!

Missed you guys at CCR, but we are still on our way home - St George, UT tonight and SLO tomorrow. It's a long way.

Hey Brian, this year was not a good one as far as road trips, but we are going to Fort Bragg in October. Are you going?

Re: Doug Sorchilla responsible for desert heat!

Hi Doug,

Really nice to meet you at CCR. Hope you had a great B-day. So, when are we going to Eastern Europe to ride?

Re: Doug Sorchilla responsible for desert heat!

Thanks guys - had the best birthday riding US Rt 2 over the Rockies and Cascades. Got home last night from a nearly 6K mile trip. I should wash the bike as it's almost as dirty as Gilles' LT - might keep it that way till Ft Bragg so I can fit in.

My bike is not dirty... It is just the color under the sunlight that makes it look dirty. Yeah.. that's it! That's the ticket! (for you fans of the ole SNL )
