I called him about a week or so ago, leaving him a voice mail, and sent him an email. My Canadian friend who winters over him Mesa was installing a GPS on his new Triumph Adventure and it had multiple connections that he wasn't sure about. I asked Gene if he could possibly give Gord some advice but he responded to neither attempt to contact him. I hope he's OK.

    Oh and BTW, I got one of those key chain cameras Steve but haven't yet activated it. I'm going to forward the email to you that I received from the ebay vender in China from whom I purchased it. He sent me a web site from which I'm supposed to download some application onto the camera. I'd like to take the thing with me to Mesa but it's got me puzzled.

    Got it.

    Lupe, you needn't fear Sheriff Joe. You'd be under my personal protection. Besides, you're an American.

    I wonder how many Mexicanos there are in the Border Patrol. I know that there are many. I'll tell you a funny story one day about the time in 2005 that I made an unintentional incursion fairly deep into Mexico. A few files west of the Calexico/Mexicali border. I was "caught" upon my return by a Border Patrol agent, a former Army sergeant and of Mexican descent. He saw the DoD sticker on my windshield which opened the conversation. I chatted with him for quite some time, mostly about military stuff.

    And I suspect that you'd be under the "protection" of Dan Diego too.

    I would love to hear the story when you come and visit, enjoying a good cup of coffee or a beer of your choice, will get all the local captains fron 300 miles around and will show you our ridding grounds, in the mean time, have fun and enjoy Arizona but above all be careful and ride safe my friend
