    Ok, I know this isn't an NC but I found the story interesting. While staying in a hotel outside of Mt Rushmore, in Keystone, SD, I saw this bike and the owner came out to talk. He and his wife have been on the road for 6 months riding 2 up. They are from Brazil and started the trip in Patagonia in the southern tip of South American and rode all the way to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska. They were now on their way to New York. All their gear fit into the 3 boxes, plus they had a bag on top of each of the boxes. He proudly showed me the decal on the windscreen of their trip. Since their English was not very good, the conversion was limited. I showed them a picture of my NC and he showed me a picture of the wife's Honda 70.

    Saw the same guy on the same NC, still wearing the same new jacket/helmet as i blew past him on the I-90 W/B freeway earlier today at about mp5. I gave him a "Thumbs up" and got off of the freeway at exit #5. I lost him behind me in traffic and then saw him later as he was N/B again on Spokane St nearing Poleline AVe. Next time hopefully i'll have some time and i'll hunt him down and introduce myself and our forum! :{)

    I may be getting older, but I refuse to grow up.

    Oly, I miss seeing your riding posts and playing NC Tag, I remember seeing a post that you were out for a bit, are you healed up and riding again?

    NWC.... Thanks for asking. I am almost 8 weeks into rehab after having rotator cuff surgery. Damage was extensive, having beat up on the shoulder for a long time (The first injury was over 30 years ago). Anyway, we just started rebuilding muscle 2 weeks ago. I am getting to the point where I expect to start riding again in the next week or two but still have reservations about 1) picking the bike up if I were to drop it and 2) wheeling it around for parking, etc. Not riding is starting to make me a little crazy but I really cannot afford to re-injure the shoulder so I am being a little conservative.
    See ya on the road soon...
