hello, sorry for the long delay on the response!! laptop has been out of commission for a while but now back online.
Back in Seattle just before christmas after 12,000 miles in the saddle over two and a half months. covered 35 states. Unfortunately couldn't complete the loop from Ventura Ca to Seattle due to an obligation to help a friend tow a fishing boat up i-5. The weather was terrible the whole way north anyway and would have been a pretty miserable three wet and cold days back on the bike.
What a trip!
here's a few pics from the journey...http://picasaweb.google.com/oneillsk...eat=directlink
