Haroldo is an Electrical Engineer in the Bay Area. He found Pashnit Tours simply by doing a search on the internet for tour companies. As well known as the Pashnit site has become within the motorcycling community, he'd never heard of it. When he signed up for the tour, he also failed to let his wife know that she'd be riding along also. As the tour day approached, he eluded that he had something planned for the July 4th holiday. She in turn was thinking of lounging on an ocean beach somewhere, waves lapping at her toes.
But alas, it wasn't so. She was going on a Motorcycle Tour. A what?
Megan is an aesthetician. If you aren't sure what that is, neither was I until she mentioned it has to do with waxing. Ah yes, I've heard of that. These two were practically newlyweds and only 2 years into their marriage together.
Haroldo had only just gotten the Kawasaki Vulcan 1500 a short time ago, having only logged some 500 miles on it. He had traded in his Vulcan 800 after deciding it was a bit small. Nevertheless, he'd only been riding for a mere 6 months, and this would be their first big ride together.
