Re: California by NT, from a new guy - Day 1

First of all........Welcome to Pashnit, Robert Igo!! You will find this site and the people on it lots of fun and quite friendly!

Your RR was excellent! What a fun and exciting adventure! You documented it really well with your writing style and great photography!
I especially love this peaceful shot of the seashore:

It's very hard to pick an all over favorite picture, but that is one of many!

I hope to see more RR's on here from you in the future!

Re: California by NT, from a new guy - Day 1

Wonderful pictures and report Robert! I made almost the exact same ride (in reverse direction) in the fall of 2008. It was incredible, and I hope to do it again, even though I've relocated to NorCal.

I'll be curious to see photos of your more local rides as well, and see if you haunt many of the same places I did during my 4 year stay in Vegas.

Can't wait to see more!

A great RR is one like this... makes those who see it want to follow in your tire tracks.

Re: California by NT, from a new guy - Day 1

Congrats on a wonderful trip and thanks so much for sharing it with us. An absolutely stunning ride report - let alone being your first one here.

You've just done your little bit to making me want to return to the USA!

Cheers Jules.

Great trip and some great pictures in there I've got a thing for mid-sized sport tourers so I enjoyed looking at your bike.

Well I just might. I'm going to ride the best Las Vegas area ride tomorrow or Monday. Maybe I'll post something for when you guys visit my state.
You people have really made me feal welcome here. I was compelled to do my best for a ride report here because I noticed folks here just seem to do their best.
