If you are one of the three or four (on a good day) regular readers of this blog you must be wondering where have I been and why have I been so quiet. Has he dropped off of this earth? Well, not really, but I’ve been to a far away corner of the earth and back and then to another corner and back again. Except for a very short and significant ride in terms of motorcycle decisions, I have not ridden at all since my last post.
I went on a series of work related trips. From Eugene to Chapel Hill and from there to Hawaii and then to the Majuro Atoll, one of the most threatened places from global warming and the raising sea level. The Majuro Atoll is where the capital of the Republic of the Marshall Islands resides.
It literally is a narrow 30 mile long ringlike coral island and reef that does not completely enclose a lagoon. Quite a place to visit, and I will prepare a post only about it. From there I went to Guam, in the Marianna Islands area, before coming back home.
A few days later I went to my home town of Porto Alegre where I stayed for several days before once again returning to the Eugene headquarters.
I’ve been back to Eugene for a few days now. On a next post I will tell you about the one important decision that will change 1/3 of my motorcycle stable. Actually phase 1 of this change has been implemented already and phase 2 will be completed at some point in March or April. I will prepare a post about the Republic of the Marshall Islands and I have some other post ideas brewing. Meanwhile I just wanted to say hello! Hope everyone is doing fine and enjoying fall as much as a motorcycle rider in the Pacific Northwest can.
