Many of you may recall John Hopkins sent me a book he wrote about his ride through Wales on a motorbike. He sent it to me as many of you thought I was crazy to ride a "New to me" bike from Texas to New Hampshire in December. And well.... you all were right, the weather hit me but I made the best of it and made it home safe.

Many of you had asked about it and I thought it would be a great idea to share it. I was going to send it via postal mail the way I got it but then some of you said hold onto it till riding season and we can hand it off to each other. It's a great way to put a face to a username (and might help kill some drama lately).

I don't know about most of you but my riding season this year never stopped (remember my trip to the Canadian Border on 1/8 and it snowed on me 18 miles from the marker?...I made it though. 4 inches of snow and slush but I made it.)

But the season is now here and I'm willing to go up to 200 miles one way. I'd love to see this thing travel the US and Canada, make it's way back to me, so I can send it back to John as a huge thank you. Yes, you can buy this book but this particular one is not edited for the US so this one is special.

I'm in Londonderry, NH.
Who's first?


When you are finished with it, sign it somewhere and date it with where you are located. Come back to this thread and post you are ready to hand it off. As always pics of meets will be required! ;)

Thank you John, and thank you HSN members in advance for your anticipated support in this.

I requested a copy from John and he said there was a copy in the states. Canyon, I want this to come my direction, can anybody bridge the gap to North Carolina, I can travel up into Virginia to meetup. I'd love to get my name on this before it goes back to John.

Don't overlook these exchange possibilities: The Canadian Rally is in Niagara Falls in late August nd the East Coast Rally is in Franklin, WV in September. More than one of us (me, ptgb & Paulie) plan to be at both.

No Eastern Solstice Meetup scheduled this year but we might manage an earlier or later lunch meeting in the Fishersville, VA area.

Look at you guys.... :)
Planning pickups and drop offs already.

Um.... I can't go THAT far south (though I'd love to) so someone closer has to be...FIRST.
Anyone....anyone... Beuller? Beuller?

I will be travelling to Virginia (Lyndhurst/Danville) come June 3rd, then I plan on moving on to Townsend, TN around June 9th. I used goggle maps and it appears that Canyon and I are about 450 miles from each other ....if it would be possible to arrange a meet somewhere around Plattsburg, New York, I could take the book with me to Virginia and arrange to meet someone to pass it on to. If that doesn't work out, perhaps I could take it on to TN and pass it on to someone in that area. The best time for me to do this would be the weekend of May 19th....let me know if you think we can work something out.

I have a club ride on May 19th so I won't be able to go then. But so far you're the closest (though you profile says you are in Canada???) I don't care who gets it when or how long they have it and where it goes. I'm hoping to goes and goes and goes then finds its way back to me.

May 20 I could do though. ;) Unless someone else can do something sooner? No offense Di, just a long way away.

LOL....Yes, I am in Canada, just across the border 1/2 hour from Alexandria Bay/Clayton Area..........yes I could do May 20th....so if no on else comes forward or is closer, shall we start it off? Looks like I'd be about 250 miles from High Point, North Carolina...maybe we could meet up somewhere inbetween like.......the Dragon! :) Hopefully this all works out :).....I'm sure it will, one way or another, but I would like to participate..........

I'll meet you at the Dragon - was thinking of putting one of the Dragon stickers on it, I'm sure John would appreciate that being from Wales.

If you are in Canada you should swing by on your way. Why make me go south? :p

That would be awesome..........I sure hope we can put this together:eek:! Could you pm me your phone number and I will get in touch with you my first trip across the border......I have a US phone cell phone that I use, however, I can only use it when I'm in the states:x.....however it beats paying the long distance rates that my Canadian telephone company insist on charging....most weeks I'm in the states at least twice, so it works out not too badly!

LOL......I have been known to go for a scoot and end up in Vermont, so I won't say it wouldn't or couldn't happen, although the next few months are going to be very busy for me:-o. If you pm me your phone #, I'll get in touch with you should I end up anywhere near you:-D!!
