Thanks for taking me along.

Kennif, many thanks to you, Shirley, Dick, Diana, and of course, Kiwi. For allowing me to join in your adventure. Reading your blog has really got me fired up to go. This spring we will be doing a small hot spring tour. Then, in October we'll be going to Mexico, to the BMW rally in Veracruz. We are so excited! Before long, we'll be hitting you up for some floor space in NZ. Enjoy your family and the holidays. I'll be looking forward to reading about the shipping of the bikes from Buenos Aries.
