  1. Taxes are getting ridiculous. Medi-care doesn't really work here anymore. Climbing interest rates & pending recession. Pending Gov't home equity tax. Nothing really keeping me here. No kids. Recently divorced after 24 years. I'm in good to great health for a mid 50 yr old. I love my work & do ok and have great equity in my house which I'll probably never pay off here. When I took a good look at where I was, where I am and where I want to be, given I have all the means to do it . . . . . the Universe told me, "If you don't follow the signals I've been giving you, you'll never get what you've been asking for." It came to me, it would be a HUGE DISERVICE to the opportunity not to do it. Oh and ya . . no more snow tires / shoes/ shovels/ jackets/ furnaces/ outrageous taxes/ and I'll be mortgage free with $$$ in the bank. A great job waiting for me with opportunity to start fresh. It's a great, invigorating feeling that really charges the neuro-pathways. New friends. New relationship options. New challenges (I'm fully aware there will always be challenges).
  2. It's been a long time since I've been on the site, let alone posted up. Many things have changed over the last 3+ years and I won't bore you with my challenges (which I've managed to overcome). However, I'm preparing for a major life transition. Selling EVERYTHING and moving from Canada to the Dominican Republic. I'll be starting out, working as a PADI instructor & Dive master - then working with a business partner (my instructor) and opening a new dive shop. Building a new home which will feature an AirBnB - so if you know me, then keep my contact and let me know when you want to book the room! I have experienced so many incredible rides and trips with the people I've met from the VFRDiscussion group. Oregon | California | Colorado | Villa Rica | Deals Gap | South Dakota | Idaho | Washington Sum Sum meets were a personal passion that brought many of us together. Anyone know where the Flaf is? From my first PNW VFRD meet in Newport OR, hosted by Keithbob to the last Kootenay Hootenany and SumSum 4 in Custer. I'm posting up my 2004 VFR for sale later today on local classifieds. This is tough, as I've had this bike for 17 years and over 116,000 km. She's gotten me there and back, even with a stator-ectomy in California (with the help of some talented co-riders) Miguel, thank you for the laughs, the site (of course) and some new music (still on my play list). CVVFR, 12 years+ of riding together are the best memories I keep. I'll be winding things down in the coming 4 months, departing in mid October. Putting the house up for sale. Running the estate sale. Purging to minimum items. I will keep my personal email (those that have it) and check in here once I'm settled. Not sure I'd find a VFR in DR? Thank you to so many I've ridden with, learned from, laughed, drank, recovered, explored, travelled and especially to the many who've hosted us when the long, cross country adventures brought us to your back yard. I'd be thrilled to catch up with you, but understand we're all busy. Until next time. . . . Keep the rubber side down, ride your own ride, smooth before fast and keep the dream alive! Cheers
  3. Mine is my key chain. So many good uses for a rubber . . . . . . band. If you get bored, no need to toss: stretch - launch - retrieve - repeat
  4. Great to see you post up. You missed a doozy. It'd be great to see you at any meet. No need to wait for (if) a SumSum5.
  5. The 2018 SumSum4 Ride icon (should) be in the ride icon gallery. For ease of use, attached here too. When placing in your signature, dbl click to edit it down to 85 x 85 pixels.
  6. Well, after 4 more days of riding, 2½ days off at the lake, I've finally arrived home and unpacked for the last time (this month). Incredible weather on the final leg today, with lingering smoke in the valley. Glad I chose the return route I did, as Hwy 97 was closed in one section due to fires. Once I get my files sorted, I'll see if I have any post worthy images, but hard to compare the great stuff shared by others. Note to self: assign a designated, camera happy person to cover the event in full (both family & NSFW)! Thanks again to everyone for the support of coming to and enjoying the event. Truly appreciate your kind words - it's a labour of love & there was lots of LOVE!
  7. I just got home and will be converting/ posting one up this weekend.
  8. There is no spoon. RE there is no FB account for me. I'll rely on peeking over the shoulders of others to check this out. Hoping your Yellowstone tour was better than our unintentional route tour. Rule 2: Never route through Yellowstone. Safe and exciting journey wishes to you.
  9. A gusty ride up from Warland to Helena with Jeff, Cora-lynn, Al & Craig. Nothing but beauty weather all the way. So good to hear a chime in that everyone (so far) is making it home safe. Hope I can access Tammy's FB photo album?
  10. It was an incredible event. Just a few highlights for now, with more to come once we're home. - Huge bow in respect to Fred & Lisa (huntinggunns & VcFR) for the rescue run. - To all the superior mechanically inclined Carvers, Qdawg VeeferCanuk and others, helping to perform 2 parking lot stator-ectomies, a chain relink & install plus several other tunes, tweaks and fittings. - OUTSTANDING hospitality from Don & Brenda the owners of the Rocket Motel (everyone needs to post 5******* on google & trip adviser for them) - The many helping hands to make the event such a smooth operation, best in 9 years. I'm sure a flood of pics will follow as everyone departed today.
  11. We'll either be out at the gazebo at the rocket, or across the street at the Brewpub. See ya'll tonight
  12. Smoking while riding, I warned him
  13. Stators go, I'm on my 3rd. No way to know or maintenance.
  14. Stators are notorious. Have you if ever, changed it in the last 25,000 miles?
