Hey 68T120R (Bob), thank you for following my ride to Panama. I did make it out to Sturgis, 4 days late as the ride to Panama took longer with all sorts of headaches. Check out my site now, I have been trying to update the blog, but 60 days of material is quite a bit to document. Will share it all eventually. http://www.missrider.com
Sorry I did not connect with you, but I was so busy. I will ride to ride the beautiful Black Hills in South Dakota, worth every twist and turn on a Bonnie....

That'll teach you to ride with guys. Seriously, I'm glad that you made it. You're still welcome here in the DC area any time you're travelling this way.

yes...

Reliance on others is not always a good thing.
Perhaps this is a lesson to us all.
I am betting you won't be caught in the same situation again.

Who you ride with can be more important than the destination.
Next time ride with Triumphs.

Men are dogs but "dog" is a gentleman and he owns a Triumph. Just saying.

No I'm not, I'm a dirty old perv, but at least I am an honest dirty old perv, and wouldn't leave a woman stranded.

I have standards to uphold here t120.

EDIT: -
Holy crap! I just checked out the sponsors page.
Amazing what a difference a set of boobs can make.
Seriously... I have got Jack Schitt from anyone over the last 7 months and 47,000 miles I have been travelling.

I thought honesty and chivarly were the cornerstones of being a gentleman. "Dirty old perv" just means your not dead yet.

How much did it cost you to fill the guy's water tank after running it dry showering? I'm thinking of moving there someday, so interested in details.

I did not have to replace the water, so I don't know how much it cost to fill the tank.
