Greetings from uscgc polar star

I've been circulating the forum for some time, but I have to welcome myself before I can post apparently. SO here I am en route Antarctica. 2002 Sprint ST owner, buy a 2015 Explorer this April when I return.

Welcome to the forum!

You could stow away that Explorer on board for some real adventure riding. Do you have any of the ScanEagle guys on board?

Cheers!

Not sure what a ScanEagle guy is, so I doubt I have any aboard. Just Coast Guardsmen.

I was a UAV operator for several years, just left that company this year. I worked in Afghanistan, but we also had teams operating our ScanEagle aircraft off of Coast Guard and scientific ships up in the Arctic. I had heard we were trying to get signed up for an Antarctic mission. The maritime teams loved transitioning from combat to research. I was wanting to do so myself, but my wife wanted a husband who was home sometimes...

Welcome.
An Explorer for an explorer.
Sounds about right.

Thank you everyone. I'm going to give the Sprint ST to my son and ride the new Explorer. Looking forward to that with such enthusiasm!

The Sprint ST is a great motorcycle. That is a very nice gift for your son.
